Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office:101 Unconscious Mistakes Women Make That Sabotage Their Careers, By Lois P. Frankel, Ph.D.
Key Takeaways

There are good reasons why Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office has become an international bestseller translated into over 22 languages – 101 of them to be exact! Here are just a few examples of the hundreds of tips this book provides to help you play – and win –  the game of business:

  • Unless your name is Betty Crocker, keep candy, cookies, and other goodies off your desk.
  • Don't ask permission – inform others of your intentions.
  • Stop apologizing.
  • Review voicemail messages after you leave them to ensure they're crisp and clear.
  • Don't be afraid to sit at the head of a long or oval table. It's not the Thanksgiving dinner table.
  • Count to three before answering a question – even if the answer is on the tip of your tongue.
  • Avoid couching your opinions in the form of questions.
  • Develop a personal marketing plan.

Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office:
101 Unconscious Mistakes Women Make That Sabotage Their Careers

If you work nonstop without a break...worry about offending others and back down too easily...explain too much when asked for information... or "poll" your friends and colleagues before making a decision, chances are you have been bypassed for promotions and ignored when you expressed your ideas. Although you may not be aware of it, girlish behaviors such as these are sabotaging your career!

Lois P. Frankel, Ph.D., an internationally-recognized executive coach who has worked with Fortune 500 companies, reveals why some women roar ahead in their careers while others stagnate. She's spotted a unique set of behaviors – 101 in all – that women learn in girlhood that sabotage them as adults. Now, in this groundbreaking guide, she helps you eliminate these unconscious mistakes that could be holding you back – and offers invaluable coaching tips you can easily incorporate into your social and business skills.

If you recognize and change behaviors that say "girl," not "woman," the results will pay off in career opportunities you never thought possible – and in an image that identifies you as someone with the power and know-how to occupy the corner office!

Editorial Reviews...

"Ms. Frankel's book makes its debut today on the New York Times business best-seller list, in the No. 10 position. The book mixes equal parts support ("you can do it," is used often), empowerment ("Eleanor Roosevelt was right when she said, 'No one can make you feel inferior without your consent' ") and advice on office politics... Does the advice work? It can't hurt. Using a more formal first name like Debra instead of a diminutive like Debbie may make people take you more seriously. After all, no one refers to Michael Dell as Mikey. It's always good advice to put your accomplishments in the best possible light and to ask for more responsibility and more money when appropriate."NEW YORK TIMES:

"Do these 10 terms describe you? Professional, credible, assertive, capable, intelligent, direct, articulate, politically astute, self confident and self-marketer? Perfect you. Don't buy this book. If not, it's makeover time with Lois Frankel, an executive coach for Fortune 500 companies.USA TODAY:

"Do these 10 terms describe you? Professional, credible, assertive, capable, intelligent, direct, articulate, politically astute, self-confident and self-marketer? Perfect you. Don't buy this book. If not, it's makeover time with Lois Frankel, an executive coach for Fortune 500 companies.

"In Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office, she's not talking about a new lipstick and eyeliner, although a new hairstyle isn't out of the question. This makeover means rethinking how you behave at work so you aren't passed over for promotions."

"...As promised in the subtitle, the book details 101 unconscious mistakes women make that sabotage their careers – ranging from tilting their heads when they talk to couching statements as questions and accepting dead-end assignments. Frankel, an executive coach who has worked with FORTUNE 500 companies, offers tips like "Don't substitute tears for anger." In other words, skip the Kleenex, ladies. Get mad, get even – and get ahead."
