Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office: 101 Unconscious Mistakes Women Make That Sabotage Their Careers

By Lois P. Frankel. Ph.D.
ISBN: 0446531324 Hardcover $19.95/U.S. $29.95/CAN 288 pages 6 x 8 WARNER BOOKS 

If you work nonstop without a break...worry about offending others and back down too easily...explain too much when asked for information...or "poll" your friends and colleagues before making a decision, chances are you have been bypassed for promotions and ignored when you expressed your ideas. Although you may not be aware of it, girlish behaviors such as these are sabotaging your career!


Lois P. Frankel, Ph. D., an internationally recognized executive coach who has worked with Fortune 500 companies, reveals why some women roar ahead in their careers while others stagnate. She's spotted a unique set of behaviors-101 in all-that women learn in girlhood that sabotage them as adults. Now, in this groundbreaking guide, she helps you eliminate these unconscious mistakes that could be holding you back-and offers invaluable coaching tips you can easily incorporate into your social and business skills.

If you recognize and change the behaviors that say "girl" not "woman," the results will pay off in career opportunities you never thought possible-and in an image that identifies you as someone with the power and know-how to occupy the corner office!

Mistake #59: Asking permission. Children, not adults, ask for approval. Be direct, be confident.

Mistake #73: Smiling inappropriately. When men don't smile they're taken seriously. Make your demeanor fit the situation. Learn why...
