An honest and practical handbook that reveals important insights into relationships between men and women and work, Play Like a Man, Win Like a Woman, is a must-read for every woman who wants to leverage her power in the workplace. Women make up almost half of today's labor force, but in corporate America they don't share half of the power. Only four of the Fortune 500 company CEOs are women, and it's only been in the last few years that even half of the Fortune 500 companies have more than one female officer. 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 readers practical tools for making the right decisions at work. Among the rules you will learn are: • How to Keep Score at Work • When to Take a Risk • How to Deal with the Imposter Syndrome • Ten Vocabulary Words That Mean Different Things to Men and Women • Why Men Can be Ugly, and You Can't • When to Quit Your Job "I want to let you women in on a secret I've learned through my years in the corporate world: There is a set of unwritten rules in business and, while you may not choose to follow all of them, if you don't know what they are, you might as well be playing the game with both hands tied behind your back." --Gail Evans

"The Leader's Edge is must read for aspiring entrepreneurs and executives. Susan Hodgkinson has done what most management consultants and scholars are unable to do. She has written a book consistent with the best research on impression management, social networks and executive development without the jargon. The Leader's Edge provides keen insights and actionable prescriptions for creating a personal brand. The 5 P's framework is the most useful I have found for analyzing and taking action to maximize how others will value your potential to contribute and be willing to invest in it. "Every aspiring professional of color needs to read this book. Susan Hodgkinson writes with sensitivity to the challenges racial minorities often face in large corporations. Her advice is part and parcel of the tools one needs to be liberated from the self limiting and defensive approaches minorities often take to being undervalued in their places of work. This book is about power and taking control of one's own destiny." -David Thomas, Professor of Organization Behavior, Harvard Business School, and Author of Breaking Through, The Making of Minority Executives in Corporate America "Sue Hodgkinson is a brilliant executive coach and a vital partner to me in supporting some of my most important clients at Genzyme.

What Women Want is a trenchant examination of the struggle for women's equality, and a prescription for what to focus on next in order to ensure maximum success. Feminism today is a movement that lacks leadership, unity, and definition, and it has gotten stuck in a boom and bust cycle when it comes to public opinion and action. Despite significant progress over the last fifty years, equality is still a distant goal in the political, social, and economic spheres. Only by identifying the barriers (both internal and external) that remain, Deborah Rhode argues, can we begin to identify solutions. A rigorously researched and well-written answer to the glut of gender-related books that have come onto the market recently, What Women Want comprehensively analyzes the challenges the feminist movement faces today. Combining sharp academic analysis and interviews with notable figures such as Sheryl Sandberg, Rhode focuses on five main topics: employment issues such as pay discrimination, work-life balance and the government's pitiful response, the assault on women's reproductive rights and the limits it places on their economic mobility, sexual harassment and violence, and the detrimental effect that the unfashionable label "feminist" can have, especially in attracting young women to the movement. Despite these formidable obstacles, the goals and principles of feminism are widely accepted by the American mainstream, and Rhode, herself a pathbreaker in the fields of law and education, offers effective strategies for redefining and advancing the feminist agenda, thereby creating a movement that truly recognizes, and is responsive to, what all women want.

Betty L. Siegel, Presidnet of Kennesaw State University, and William W. Purkey, Award-Winning Professor at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, have applied the valid principles of Invitational Theory to the enduring challenge of leader- ship. The result is a very engaging and practical approach to leadership. Becoming an Invitational Leader is significantly different from other books on leadership in that it offers a fresh and innovative model based on a single theore- tical framkework. This model shifts from emphasizing control and dominance to one that focuses on connectedness, cooperation, and communication. Based on sound philosophical and scientific assumptions, this model of leadership has been tested and successfully applied by leaders in business, medicine, education, and many other professions. Reviews by internationally-respected authorities on leadership have been universally positive, including: JOHN N. GARDENER: ?The beauty of the Purkey and Siegel model is that their vision of leadership can fit and enrich every type of human growth context: family, company, school, college, university, church, public, private, profit, non profit, personal, professional, secular, spiritual. This model certainly has something for everyone. At last a ?leadership? book I can understand, relate to, and put into action.? GAIL EVANS: ?Finally, a new, fresh look at the dynamics of leadership. Take up Siegel?s and Purkey?s invitation to experience your power in a non-confrontational environment.? --Author of Play Like a Man, Win Like a Woman PARKER J. PALMER: ?Invitational leadership is a concept whose time has come, a way of being congruent with the democracy?s deepest principles to say nothing of common sense. At a time in our history when both common sense and democratic values are under assault, we need this excellent book which explores a form of leading, and living, that can help us right what is wrong. Must be read and embraced by many.?--Author of The Courage to Teach and Let Your Life Speak
