Girls Guide To Power And Success

$14.00

Even now, in the 21st century, women continue to be paid less than men, are still notably absent from the executive suites, and among entrepreneurs, receive only a tiny fraction of venture capital. The struggle for equality is not yet over — and its up to women to take positive action for change. The Girls’ Guide to Power and Success shows readers how. It’s packed with frank advice and hard-won lessons including: * It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it. Learn to strip out the hesitant “buts”; intimate details; and indirect phrasings — and assert yourself effectively. * Develop the confidence to ask for what you want. Learn how to create opportunities for yourself rather than waiting for them to be offered. * Look for companies that “get it.” Learn to pinpoint companies that are committed to women’s advancement. With its frank advice, lively tone, and no-nonsense strategies, The Girls’ Guide to Power and Success is a powerful ally for women who are just starting their careers and those who are well established in their professions. “Even now, in the 21st century, women continue to be paid less than men, are still notably absent from the executive suites, and among entrepreneurs, receive only a tiny fraction of venture capital.
