This is a guidebook for working women who believe that they are being held back in the workplace. A glass ceiling for women is not in place because of male management, according to Kate White. Rather, she maintains, women create their own glass ceiling because of their good-girl personalities. In nine steps, she details how a good girl can become a gutsy girl. Gutsy girls break through the glass ceiling and get what they want from the organization. This is an important book for any woman who wants to rise to upper management in a corporation. Men, too, can learn ways to be more aggressive at work. getAbstract recommends this book for anyone who wants a strong dose of workplace reality.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to break the years of conditioning and become a “gutsy girl”;
- How to learn to say no without feeling guilty;
- Why self-confidence and decisiveness are the most important qualities for a working woman.
