Wasting' time, like getting coffee or going out to lunch, allows you to build personal relationships with your coworkers. Dress this way, look this way”: In Chapter 7, Frankel approaches a more sensitive topic from my perspective and where I don’t necessarily agree fully with. How about providing a toolbox, rather than dismissing those people as failures doomed to serve others? I'm not necessarily guilty of this (so far), but this would be a good one to remember when I find another job that isn't as laid-back (in terms of office attitude--we all get our own coffee and make our own copies if needed) as the one I have now.

Think: your well-meaning grandmother (but still your grandmother) trying to give you a boatload of career advice based on her life experiences.

I find most outdated the overall premise of the book: that women should be more like power hungry american corporate men rather than meeting in the middle. As you become aware of the behaviors that are sabotaging your career, you will begin to see a change in how people perceive you and how you perceive yourself.

Yet another zelfhulpboek dat met een hoop grote woorden beweert verbazingwekkende informatie te delen die je volledige zijn zal transformeren, maar uiteindelijk een empty shell vol voorspelbaarheid blijkt te zijn. If Nice Girls was a friend, it would be the one who says, "yes, you really do look fat in that outfit, but here's another that will accentuate what a wonderful body you actually have. Honestly, parts of the "how you look" section of the book was a bit ridiculous and somewhat dated, even though this book is but 8 years old, (don't wear inappropriate makeup, dress appropriately, grooming in public, wrong hairstyle, etc. If you can’t decide on whether or not to ask a question, simply ask yourself, “Will the answer apply to only me?Playing your game at the edge can help to stretch the boundaries, but if it’s too narrowly defined for you, start looking for a bigger field. Daarnaast was het fijn dat er bij elke fout eigenlijk wel een voorbeeld genoemd stond en dat er werd uitgelegd waarom het fout was. Women often smile when they are delivering a serious message, criticizing a person, and in situations of potential conflict. While some of this is applicable and helpful, I don't see it being the book that is going to make or break the difference in my career.

They’ve been taught at a young age that they will only succeed in life if they are well-liked by others so they are praised and rewarded for being polite; meanwhile, they are punished for being too aggressive. 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. There were a few other examples like this throughout the book that get a little too nit picky, but do not take away from the overall message. If you view your boss in this way, you are hindering yourself from building an independent, objective relationship with him.Sometimes she has a truly valuable nugget for you, but most of the time, it's safe (and maybe better) to ignore.
