Description

Despite all of the progress we've made toward equal rights over the last few decades, less than 4 percent of America's largest companies employ women as senior executives. This is not, according to business coach John M. McKee, because female professionals lack the desire or ability to lead. In his thirty years of experience in corporate life, McKee has found that a working woman cannot improve her situation until she more actively manages her career, gains a better understanding of the traditionally masculine culture of the workplace, and refuses to accept lower pay scales and unequal treatment. If you want to take control of your career-and not depend on those who consciously or unconsciously subscribe to a lingering "old boys" mentality for advancement-you need this book. 21 Ways Women in Management Shoot Themselves in the Foot presents specific, practical tactics that will help you rise to the top: How to navigate gender bias in the workplace (it still exists!) How to avoid common habits that will sabotage your career The single most important tool used by highly successful professionals And much more . . .
