Hardball for Women: Winning at the Game of Business
By: Pat Heim
In this constructive, no-nonsense guide, business consultant Pat Heim addresses women executives who, despite technical proficiency, hard work and managerial skills equal or superior to those of their male co-workers, have been passed over for promotions. With co-author Susan K. Golant, she stresses the need for women to study the sports-modeled, competitive culture of men, focused on money and status, and to learn to work according to its rules without betraying their “inner selves.” Using sports jargon and examples, she advises such techniques as attacking a problem–not the person responsible–adhering to team goals and accepting criticism from a “coach.” She also offers valuable tips on positive body language (no tears), dressing and more, and reminds women that “in a man’s world–as in sports–winning is all that matters.” Buy this book
