Robin Wolaner wholeheartedly believes that her willingness to show emotion, sensitivity and, yes, even vulnerability, in the workplace is the reason she succeeded in business. Her refreshing, candid book is more of a memoir than a business text or a step-by-step guide. In it she reveals business lessons through the lens of her own experiences. Her purpose is to help women utilize their unique strengths, follow their intuition and sharpen their decision-making skills. The practical tips at the end of each chapter simplify this process for the reader. Although Wolaner makes every effort to be as emotionally “naked” on the pages as she tried to be in the boardroom, she does now and then slip into a self-congratulatory or even slightly self-justifying tone, but she brings lots more to the table than that. getAbstract suggests that her frank, autobiographical business book is the perfect read for women who want to learn by example. And everyone will benefit from and enjoy her roster of “naked truths.”
In this summary, you will learn
- How Robin Wolaner reached the top in magazine publishing;
- How women can use their feminine sensibilities advantageously at work; and
- How to advance your career.
