Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office: 101 Unconscious Mistakes Women Make That Sabotage Their Careers by Lois P. Frankel


A nice summary of workplace habits that can be refined and practiced. My sister recommended this book to me because she knows I struggle with several of the nice girl habits. I appreciate the tone of this book which is direct, firm, and no-nonsense. There are some suggestions that may seem to be less than progressive (no tattoos? wear makeup?) but these are explained under the notion that there are, actually, different rules for workplace success for men and women, even if it's not fair. Much of the other advice (there are, after all, over a hundred suggestions here) is more easily accepted - be direct, speak up, say what you mean, etc. Interesting read.
