Description

Forget what you've heard. Nice girls can get the corner office.So, you finally got that promotion. You're the boss now. The supervisor. The manager. The captain. Those days of taking orders and running errands are over. As exciting as all this might seem, once the rush of the promotion is over, you might be scratching your head wondering exactly what to do. Being the boss is never easy, but it's twice as hard for a woman. It seems like there's no middle ground. Either you're the dragon lady who rules with an iron fist or the mousey girl who gets drowned out at every meeting. When a woman wields authority and dares to make tough decisions, how often is the "B-word" bandied about by her employees? How can she strike that balance between pushover and dictator?Fear not. You can do the job. All you need is a little helpful advice to send you on your way. Whether you supervise two employees as a shift manager or lord over an entire corporate empire, Caitlin Friedman and Kim Yorio will show you how to step gracefully into your new position of power. They'll teach you how to motivate your team without alienating them, how to delegate without feeling guilty, how to deal with office politics and how to handle evaluations, promotions, and even firings. And for those of you who are already running the show, they can help you become the mentor your employees deserve. Since women still don't have much of a road map when it comes to taking charge at the office, the team who brought you the national bestseller The Girl's Guide to Starting Your Own Business drew one up for us. Inside, there are self-assessment questionnaires to help you find out where you land on the bitch or wimp scale, interviews with prominent female bosses, and advice from a whole host of experts. Caitlin Friedman and Kimberly Yorio will teach you to be powerful without being possessive, to be opinionated without being brassy, and to have a strong voice without micromanaging. You'll learn just how to own the role of queen bee in a positive way so that you can be more mentor than manager - one who leads, inspires, and motivates.

        Since the early 1980s, studies have shown that the techniques utilized by successful men in leadership roles do not have the same effects when practiced by women in similar contexts. It is commonly known that when a woman behaves like her male counterpart, she is often negatively labeled as cold, tough, etc. In addition, women have fewer female role models to whom they can turn for advice and assistance. Friedman and Yorio help readers through this dilemma by compiling personal anecdotes, pop culture references and an array of interviews with female leaders in various fields in an attempt to offer the support and encouragement women need to excel as leaders. The authors state that the patience, strength, wisdom, resourcefulness and nurturance that society cultivates in women might actually make females better managers than males. The book is filled with numerous examples of management styles as well as quizzes to determine if the reader is a "Good Witch" or a "Bad Bitch" with regard to her own leadership skills. Leaders of any gender will find solace in reading these stories from the trenches and may learn some new tips to improve on their own leadership skills as well.

        These three titles represent widely different styles and approaches in offering advice to (primarily) women seeking to develop their professional leadership skills. Friedman and Yorio ("The Girl -s Guide to Starting Your Own Business") are the most irreverent, combining suggestions for successful team building, communication, delegation, and navigation of office politics with -Girl Talk - and -Good Witch or Big Bitch? - sidebars that offer tips from and interviews with female managers. Morgan and Lynch (cofounders, Lead Star), two women who spent a combined 18 years in the Marine Corps, offer the stylistic polar opposite: ten leadership tactics in as many no-nonsense chapters, with examples taken from their military careers. Lynch describes her effort to climb a rope as an example of taking responsibility before assigning blame; Morgan describes giving medals to her team members rather than herself to illustrate taking care of your subordinates. They provide chapter summary points, although their narrative suffers from the lack of either authorial cohesion or a conclusion. Both of these titles are firmly positioned for women only and are quick reads. Public or special libraries might consider purchasing only one of them, based on their particular collection or culture.

        The title by Bourgeois (founder, president, Ctr. for Workforce Excellence; "Her Corner Office: A Guide To Help Women Find a Place and a Voice in Corporate America") benefits from a more unified presentation, as well as more references to the existing business literature (e.g., Jim Collins, Peter Drucker). It offers tips to help men and women incorporate each others - leadership skills into a new and stronger -hybrid - style. Although allusions to Christian tenets are a bit more frequent than might be desired by many business readers, Bourgeois -s style is both engaging and professional, her techniques well explained, and her manual the most cohesively organized of the three. She provides proof of the need for better management skills, outlines methods for developing those skills, and concludes with examples of hybrid leadership and -leadership challenges - in which readers are asked to apply their newfound knowledge. Recommended for larger public, academic, and special libraries. -Sarah Statz Cords, Madison P.L., WI

        Adult/High School -This crash course in management covers the gamut in perky prose, from hiring to firing and everything in between. The authors provide examples of their principles with stories from their experiences as bosses and with reports of other female executives. Interviews with successful businesswomen add insight into techniques on which the chapter focuses. Other stories about bosses who were either -good witches - or -bad bitches - provide juicy anecdotes. Not all issues will apply to every teen in a leadership position, but young women will find this a handy guide. Whether student-body president or yearbook editor, or at work in another environment, teens will find tools, techniques, and advice that they can use to lead people more efficiently and effectively." -Jane S.
