Publisher's Summary

Before you were told to "Lean In," Dr. Lois Frankel told you how to get that corner office. The New York Times best seller, is now completely revised and updated. In this edition, internationally recognized executive coach Lois P. Frankel reveals a distinctive set of behaviors - over 130 in all - that women learn in girlhood that ultimately sabotage them as adults.

She teaches you how to eliminate these unconscious mistakes that could be holding you back and offers invaluable coaching tips that can easily be incorporated into your social and business skills. Stop making "nice girl" errors that can become career pitfalls, such as:

  • Mistake 13: Avoiding office politics. If you don't play the game, you can't possibly win.
  • Mistake 21: Multi-tasking. Just because you can do something, doesn't mean you should do it.
  • Mistake 54: Failure to negotiate. Don't equate negotiation with confrontation.
  • Mistake 70: Inappropriate use of social media. Once it's out there, it's hard to put the toothpaste back in the tube.
  • Mistake 82: Asking permission. Children, not adults, ask for approval. Be direct, be confident.

Great for bite-sized reading

First of all I loved the way this book was structured. Having it broken down by mistakes made it easy to listen to a couple on the way to work, on the train, walks around the block. Secondly, the way each mistake is presented, linked to a story and then accompanied by coaching tips made them really easy to understand and action every day. I've taken a lot of these tips on my stride and have noticed a big difference already with praise from my peers.

Women can break through in their career!

I enjoy the many practical tips and the option to practice a few at a time rather than expecting to do them all.

Very dated

This has some interesting observations but was very dated, or at least I hope it was.

This should be a working girl’s bible!

I’ve been replaying this about 3x now, to make sure I internalize the lessons. Thank you Dr. Lois for writing this!

Very recommendable

Although some recommendations in this book are not achievable in my industry, it makes you aware of the subconscious mistakes we are doing on a daily basis.
Very good book

Comprehensive, a long read though

Dr Frankel's book shared comprehensive insight into the psychology of women disempowering themselves and being taken advantage of in the workplace. She discussed very specific situations, strategies, habits and tools women should apply. However in saying that, if it were succinct it would have been four stars for me. Glad I read this early on in my career.

Too many judgments

I found parts of this book a little helpful however I found the author very judgmental at times. When you start judging people on their appearance and tell me that research has found people with tattoos earn less you have lost me completely. Having a tattoo or piercing is not a reflection of the type of person you are. I found your coaching tips more like advice on who you should not be in order to get further in the corporate world. Such as not showing emotions or having a nickname. Yes, women have core beliefs that can influence their behaviour at work however this book seems to skim the surface on why that is. At times outdated and very corporate based. Not a great book for free-spirited women.

The title looked a bit childish at the start however the topic, the language and the narrator, All on spot! Great guidness and examples.
methodical and practical.
Evey one can relate to the topic even man's.
Truly recommended.
