I'm recommending it to all my friends.
I had a friend say to me, "I wish I'd read this book twenty years ago." Yes, it is that kind of book - the type that can save you a few missteps along the road to success. I believe women in business have come a long way but, there are still unconscious traits, habits and mannerisms that hamper our being taken seriously as powerful career women.
Lois Frankel is an executive coach and approaches writing this book as if she were working with a coaching client. First there is the Self-Assessment, then an analysis of the quiz answers and finally, suggestions for overcoming some of unconscious mistakes that may be sabotaging our careers. The author is systematic, straightforward and knows how to apply what she is suggesting to the "real-world."
Chapter 1 contains a Self-Assessment. I recommend you make some quiet time to answer the questions and study your answers carefully. This forty-nine question quiz is the beginning of the "aha" process.
I believe we can all benefit from this book whether we're beginning a career or business, currently in a leadership position or have a daughter about to enter the workforce. The only drawback to this book for me, was that it was written in the negative, focusing on mistakes - I'm not one who responds well to negativity.
I'm only a couple chapters into this book and thus far it's got me to a T! Within the first few examples I saw myself in situations that either I handled poorly or completely inadequately but Frankel's action points and suggestions have already helped me top and think about how I ought to have handled a situation and how the outcome could have been not only better but beneficial for my professional development if I'd handled them better.
Based on what I've read so far any working woman should read this book. Heck all women should read this book, I can see ways I can develop personally through all her professional recommendations as well.
