Overview

"Savvy advice and dynamic strategies to help women defy limiting assumptions."-- National Women’s Review

"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 it¿s 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."
