The Power of Women at WorkDownloadable Audiobook - 2017
"So much career advice for women addresses how to succeed in the static business world of yesterday and today. But that world, says former Wall Street powerhouse-turned-entrepreneur Sallie Krawcheck, is changing--and fast. In fact, we are on the brink of what Krawcheck calls the Fourth Wave of feminism, one that will usher in unprecedented opportunities for women in business. This is all being driven by the fact that the business world is evolving in ways that play to women's strengths. Because in the increasingly complex and connected world of tomorrow--one where communication and collaboration rule the day--the skills and qualities needed for success are ones that women inherently possess. And by owning and investing in these traits, women have more power than ever. Here, Krawcheck draws on her experiences at the highest levels of business, both as one of the lone women at the top rungs of the biggest boys' club in the world and as an entrepreneur, to show how women can tap into this growing power to elevate their careers: from getting the raise, to new takes on networking and mentoring, to navigating career breaks and curveballs, to how to avoid the biggest career mistake that most women don't know they are making. At the same time, women have the opportunity to play a more significant role in shaping their companies into places they want to work--or to leave and start their own by initiating the "courageous conversations" about true flexibility and diversity in the workplace, forging nontraditional career paths, and more. Lighting the path to complete the revolution ignited by Gloria Steinem, Krawcheck shows how each of us can ride the wave of this revolution to own our careers and our futures."--Dust jacket.
