About this deal

For fear of sounding stupid, asking a question is a safe way of expressing ideas without being perceived as too pushy or too direct. I had an epiphany-like moment over and over again when Frankel points out that when people shame a woman for unladylike behavior, it's not because there is such a shameful thing as unladylike behavior, it's because it's the easiest and most effective means of getting whatever it is they want out of you.

And here’s another reason why we continue to exhibit the behaviors learned in childhood even when at some level we know they’re holding us back: We can’t see beyond the boundaries that have traditionally circumscribed the parameters of our influence. Most glaryingly obvious is her consistent comparison of men vs women, then stating how the presumed reader is not a man and should act like a woman, but not too much.As soon as you enter the world of business, it’s time to check that little girl inside you at the door. Some of the advice assumes the reader is a relatively high earner and some is so painfully obvious that it's insulting.

Before you begin reading, here’s your first tip: Don’t read this book until you’ve learned how to use it to your advantage. Many of us, who come from homes that were supportive and definitely didn't pigeonhold us into the subservient female role, would never imagine how much we have picked up from the social cues and trends around us.It is not included in promotions available to our main range products, as stated in our terms of service. Best takeaway from this entry: "If people make you feel stupid over a question you've asked, you can assume it's their problem, not yours.

Even thought I can't relate to her on a generational level she is a good kick in the pants to stop being a "girl" and start working like a woman who has her shit together. For every professional woman who wants to get ahead - but feels she is at an impasse - NICE GIRLS DON'T GET THE CORNER OFFICE comes to the rescue. I would absolutely listen to this again because its chalked full of tips and advice that apply to so many different situations a woman finds herself in at work. I was hesitant about this purchase because I wasn't worried about snagging the "corner office," so much as just getting started, but I am so glad I found this gem as I begin my journey through the corporate world.

After reading through this book (which doesn't take long as you can easily skip over irrelevant sections), I have realized that I actually am making a bunch of 'mistakes' at work that are not benefiting my career. This book was written for you, so take out your pen and start making notations for what you commit to doing differently.
