Publisher's Summary

The Atlantic magazine has called it the “end of men.” For the first time in U.S. history, women form the majority of the workforce, filling more managerial positions than their male counterparts. Today’s women are primed to take over the corporate world - if they don’t stumble on the way up. Packed with insights from extraordinary women who have climbed the corporate ladder - including McDonald’s president Jan Fields, JetBlue cofounder Ann Rhoades, and fashion pioneer Liz Lange - Who Says It’s a Man’s World helps women navigate the rocky path from cubicle to executive suite.

This ultra-practical guide offers an ideal “Success Profile” along with the measurable action steps needed to excel in each of five reputation-enhancing areas: personal development, social skills, effectiveness, team building, and leadership. Complete with the latest research on women in the workplace and an eye-opening “promo ta bility” assessment, Who Says It’s a Man’s World provides listeners with everything they need to build their own fast-track career plan.

Great practical advice

This book provides great practical advice for navigating the career ladder. I feel the tools outlined in this book could be used by women aspiring to be CEO's and ones who want and inspiring yet part time job to work around their children. This book outlines strategies to becoming better within your career but many of these strategies would also help build on general self development. There are a number of very specific female work place issues here as well as advice that could be used by men. I feel this book will be a growth tool for me for several years to come while I build into my dream career.
