Nice Girls Don’t Get the Corner Office

Nice Girls Don’t Get the Corner Office

Revised and extended version of the original book “Nice Girls Don’t Get The Corner Office”.

Before you were told to “Lean In,” Dr. Lois Frankel told you how to get that corner office.

This New York Times bestseller has been completely revised and updated. In this edition, internationally recognized executive coach Lois P. Frankel reveals a distinctive set of behaviors – over 130 in all – that women learn in girlhood that ultimately sabotage them as adults.

Frankel teaches you how to eliminate these unconscious mistakes that could well be holding you back.  She offers invaluable coaching tips that can easily be incorporated into your social and business skills and to stop making “nice girl” errors that can become career pitfalls, such as:

  • Mistake #13: Avoiding office politics. If you don’t play the game, you can’t possibly win.
  • Mistake #21: Multi-tasking. Just because you can do something, doesn’t mean you should do it.
  • Mistake #54: Failure to negotiate. Don’t equate negotiation with confrontation.
  • Mistake #70: Inappropriate use of social media. Once it’s out there, it’s hard to put the toothpaste back in the tube.
  • Mistake #82: Asking permission. Children, not adults, ask for approval. Be direct, be confident.
