Women make up almost half of today’s labor force, but in corporate America they don’t share half of the power. A major reason for this? Most women were never taught how to play the game of business.
Throughout her career in the super-competitive, male-dominated media industry, Gail Evans, one of the country’s most powerful executives, has met innumerable women who tell her that they feel lost in the workplace, almost as if they were playing a game without knowing the directions. In this book, she reveals the secrets to the playbook of success and teaches women at all levels of the organization – from assistant to vice president – how to play the game of business to their advantage.
Men know the rules because they wrote them, but women often feel shut out of the process because they don’t know when to speak up, when to ask for responsibility, what to say at an interview, and a lot of other key moves that can make or break a career. Sharing with humor and candor her years of lessons from corporate life, Gail Evans gives listeners practical tools for making the right decisions at work.
