Publisher's summary

Inspired to extend a helping hand to ambitious women working in corporate America, a veteran executive offers honest, practical, slightly irreverent advice about navigating companies that are run and populated predominately by men: how to interpret their sometimes surprising behavior, avoid common mistakes, flourish with the good guys, deal with the bad guys, and nurture a wonderful, satisfying career in a non-traditional role.

Learn how to:

  • Build relationships with men one-on-one, in meetings, and after hours
  • Work a difficult room full of men and shine in the eyes of your male managers
  • Identify gentlemen, bullies, liars, and predators
  • Detect a glass ceiling and sidestep a misogynist backlash
  • Get noticed for your courage and common sense and be heard
  • Avoid classic pitfalls related to conflict, emotional behavior, and sex

Critic reviews

  • 2012 National Indie Excellence Award Winner in the Business-Motivational Category
"A guide for business women who find themselves in a position of power and want to create a harmonious environment in fields where misogyny often reigns. Vital reading for any woman who wants to navigate the toxic corporate culture, it is a fine and much recommended pick for career and women's studies collections." (Mary Cowper, Midwest Book Review)
