About this deal

Girls are protected from overcoming many barriers, like failure, and consequently there is a kind of emotional stunting that we turn a blind eye to and justify through the idea of inherent gender characteristics. For example, over-accessorizing can distract people from listening to your message; instead, they might focus on the dangling bracelet around your wrist. Qualifiers are comments like, “Maybe itwould be better if…” Their sole purpose is to simply soften and weaken the message. This book was written for you, so take out your pen and start making notations for what you commit to doing differently.

The now-retired author Lois P Frankel, is a psychotherapist, consultant, executive coach and keynote speaker with over twenty-five years experience in career coaching. What I need to do instead: make decisions without polling others for opinions and deliver direction without wavering.The title contains a clue that 101 mistakes cannot be fixed within one book so the author wisely points them out and then refers the reader to another more specific book to help with a particular or group of particular mistakes. This is a used book - there is no escaping the fact it has been read by someone else and it will show signs of wear and previous use.

Some of the advice assumes the reader is a relatively high earner and some is so painfully obvious that it's insulting. 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.Most glaryingly obvious is her consistent comparison of men vs women, then stating how the presumed reader is not a man and should act like a woman, but not too much. Many of us, who come from homes that were supportive and definitely didn't pigeonhold us into the subservient female role, would never imagine how much we have picked up from the social cues and trends around us. Second, it provide too many no right- no wrong recommend for both gender, but still emphasize only female worker often do this and that, but male co worker don't. Each time a woman asks for permission, she is diminishing herself and reducing herself to the position of a child.

In the business world, there is nothing shameful about thinking about relationships in this way; in fact, it’s smart. This book will help women to become aware of when and how they are damaging their career and it will give them the advice and tips they need to help replace these self-defeating behaviors with more effective ones - and finally claim the corner office they so richly deserve.Throughout the book I agreed with some of the topics raised by Frankel (which are actually included in many books I will review later on) but strongly disagreed with many.

I think it's fine when you're trying to decide where to meet for dinner or what to wear, but professionally, it shows that you can't make a decision.Obviously, if something is heinously wrong, tell someone, but you need to weigh the benefit of pointing out minor infractions against the possible consequences. Changing behavior is much easier if you can understand where it comes from and what purpose it serves.
