    Reads like a Cosmopolitan article littered with embarrassing phrases like Chick in Charge and Bad Bitch or Big Witch It s awful to think the next generation of young female mangers might read this and believe it perpetuating gender stereotypes to the nth degree.

    I didn t finish They lost all credibility with me when I got to the chapter on dress code and it said to get a manicure, have eyebrows waxed or threaded regularly, keep split ends cut and always wear makeup These are all things that cost money that men don t have to do, so I don t do them at least, not as a habit ...

    I had to reread this book, as it had been a while since I d seen it While many of the skills and tips in this book are good advice for either gender in the workplace, the authors who run their own public relations company, celebrity chef Jamie Oliver among their clients include some information of specific relevance to women For example, they remind women that being the boss means that you can t be buddies any with everyone, and that at times it s not personal but indeed just business I had to reread this book, as it had been a while since I d seen it While many of the skills and tips in this book are good advice for either gender in the workplace, the authors who run their own public relations company, celebrity chef Jamie Oliver among their clients include some information of specific relevance to women For example, they remind women that being the boss means that you can t be buddies any with everyone, and that at times it s not personal but indeed just business They also remind women that you have to own your power as a boss don t be afraid to be the boss, as your employees are counting on you to speak and act decisively They give equal time to being the boss at a company versus being the boss at your own company, and they provide some great info on hiring and firing Most importantly, they emphasize how important communication is when you re the boss and how important it is that you take each employ...

    A good reference book for women who want to be great individual contributors or women moving into a supervisory role I enjoyed the girl talk chats with female managers to gain their perspective on various leadership topics.

    Some good and practical advice, but really geared towards large corporations, and doesn t work as well for women at smaller organizations, non profits, and so on.

    Disappointing read Just seemed very common sense to me Probably would have had a different perspective and found it farvaluable if I had read it when I first started managing people Frankly, I was horrified when, on page 25 I read, studies also show that women are not socialized to become leaders and that great leading female role models are few and far between Sure, there s Eleanor Roosevelt, Hillary Clinton, Madeleine Albright, Oprah Winfrey, and Maya Angelou, but beyond that, ca Disappointing read Just seemed very common sense to me Probably would h...
