I'm not necessarily guilty of this (so far), but this would be a good one to remember when I find another job that isn't as laid-back (in terms of office attitude--we all get our own coffee and make our own copies if needed) as the one I have now. I need to let my confidence come across so that the people I am speaking with know I mean what I say and they'll stop questioning or undermining me. For example, say your partner asks you a simple question like, “Would you rather cook at home or go out to eat tonight? Its also common knowledge the office space is heavily geared toward men, so is the rest of the world.

As we change and grow our areas that we reference to in this book will also change, and I would like to have the ability to take and retake the questionnaire, that guides you through the book, as often as I like. Women receive fewer promotions because they are less likely to have mentors who are also advocates for them. Be one of the first few people to speak up at a meeting--you never want to be the last person to speak. Ellie is in graduate school in a male-dominated field (physics, I think), and nobody will ever listen to her in class, so she comes up with this persona--authoritative, strong, loud, CONFIDENT. This BS that is mascaraed as coaching is nothing more than an attempt to push women shift their behavior because men aren’t willing to shift their own.You will be much more likely to be taken seriously if you don’t use your childhood nickname for professional purposes. Dress this way, look this way”: In Chapter 7, Frankel approaches a more sensitive topic from my perspective and where I don’t necessarily agree fully with. I always knew that I was a typical girl in finding it difficult to negotiate money, but I thought that was it. Over time, we begin to interpret that self-doubt as fact, causing us to second-guess our judgments and doubt our expertise. I had an epiphany-like moment over and over again when Frankel points out that when people shame a woman for unladylike behavior, it's not because there is such a shameful thing as unladylike behavior, it's because it's the easiest and most effective means of getting whatever it is they want out of you.

But by splitting their attention between tasks, the quality of their output is inconsistent and below standards. In the end, this does nothing to help women advance their careers; instead, they just look harried, nervous, and overworked. Whether you are from Jakarta, Oslo, Prague, Frankfurt, Wellington, or Detroit, women across all cultures make the same set of unique mistakes at work.This is the first book I read from the bibliography of Anne Kreamer's It's Always Personal: Navigating Emotion in the New Workplace, and I found it much more skills-based and practical. Frankel reveals a distinctive set of behaviours–over 130 in all–that women learn in girlhood that ultimately sabotage them as adults. I would absolutely listen to this again because its chalked full of tips and advice that apply to so many different situations a woman finds herself in at work. It tells her that you will simply do what she says, even worse, she will get the impression that you are unable to make such risky decisions. Changing behavior is much easier if you can understand where it comes from and what purpose it serves.

Is not all about having millions of followers or getting a sponsorship, is a about defining how you want to be seen by people surrounding you, which causes you support, how do you engage with friends and family, what do you review negatively or positively, even what makes you laugh.They're not going to see me as a faceless humanoid the moment I don jeans and overlook the fact that I am female.

These men began employment at the same time as Susan, yet they were the ones getting promoted, not Susan. As a young feminist who is just starting out in her career, I was relatively certain that the professional world would have changed since Frankel wrote her book and that acting in a professional (yet reserved) fashion would be sufficient in today's workplace. This book will help women to become aware of when and how they are damaging their careers and it will give them the advice and tips they need to help replace these self-defeating behaviours with more effective ones - and finally claim the corner office they so richly deserve.For example, over-accessorizing can distract people from listening to your message; instead, they might focus on the dangling bracelet around your wrist. Each time a woman asks for permission, she is diminishing herself and reducing herself to the position of a child. A former coworker/mentor of mine said that she had to take breaks throughout the day so that she wouldn't lose her mind. For example, they are taught to hold their arms close to their bodies, cross their legs at the knee, and avoid using big gestures.
