Combining humor with practical advice, the author presents the keys to business success for women, covering such issues as Mommy Momentum, Fearlessness in Asking Directions, and Verbal Essence
Filled with practical, empowering advice and delivered with an irreverent sense of humor, How to Succeed in Business Without a Penis reveals the yin and the yang of business. Salmansohn first exposes ten male advantages (some to be learned, some to be spurned) and then shows the advantages of attributes that are commonly perceived as female disadvantages. The book explains how women can easily incorporate these ten uniquely female advantages into their business skills to give them the competitive edge in the workplace. Salmansohn also teaches readers how to find their own "Career Waldos" (hidden career goals) and how to keep them firm by using the "Staremasters" (staring at practical tips and exercises) so readers can develop "wills of steel," the most crucial muscles for climbing to the top of the corporate ladder. Readers will also find a "Chick List" of insightful quotes from real women who like it on top and frank advice about how to survive in a "Cat-Eat-Cat" world.Borrowing from her experience as an awardwinning advertising executive, Karen Salmansohn combines marketing savvy and inspiring interpretations of the most revered classics on leadership, like The Art of War and The Prince, with a healthy, humorous perspective to give working women everything they need to get what they want - as well as to find out what it is they want in the first place.
