For every professional woman who wants to get ahead, but feels she is at an impasse, Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office comes to the rescue. In this program, Dr. Frankel, reveals the 101 self-sabotaging behaviors women learn as girls, behaviors and habits that are now holding them back in the workplace, such as couching statements as questions, tilting one's head when they speak, waiting to be noticed, and pinching company pennies. From executive to entry level, every woman needs to know what she is doing to subconsciously sound, look, act, market herself, and/or be treated like a "girl".

Dr. Frankel's groundbreaking follow up, Nice Girls Don't Get Rich, offers advice every woman needs to know to stop sabotaging her finances and level the playing field when it comes to money. In this program, Dr. Frankel reveals the 75 mistakes women make that are holding them back from financial success, such as depending on men for financial advice and/or support, treating money as a taboo, being reluctant to negotiate, and a fear of math and numbers.

best business book

One of the best business books I have picked from Audible. And a good buy because you get two. The first book has 101 mistakes women make. This sounds like it might be tedious (or negative) but not so. For each the author gives an example. And then a tip (what to do) to contrast with the mistake.

I can't say if men will like this book. For me, a woman who has worked for over 30 years, I learned something from every one of the 101 mistakes. None of the examples or tips are lame. I really recommend this.

The second book "Don't Get Rich" is also very good.

I must not be a nice girl.

I couldn’t get through the book. I got halfway through the first one. I kept waiting for something profound or very applicable to me. Nada. If you are codependent, meek, soft spoke , passive, prone to backing down, etc. this is the book for you. If you’re simply a nice woman who’s already done a lot of personal development and stands in her truth, pass this one up.

Take it lightly

A lot of the tips are useless outside of the USA. Great first self help book (I'm from Canada)

On

In the second half of Dr.Frankel's title, "N.G.D Get Rich" she is already in a high paying position and the corp has paid her way through school to get her a degree. (yes, she did the work, but most of us dont have flexible high paying prestigious jobs who will put us through a prestigious school.) Altho i did't care for the underlying message ("just play dirty and WIN") i did appreciate her coaching about managing finances and there being no excuse that women can't or shouldn't get rich by their own volition. In this, investing has no 'glass ceilings' and doesn't discriminate. She's right. Learn to invest. It can be done with as little as $100 and she will advise on the best methods, plus get your mindset in the right direction.

Basic, but telling

I had "Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office" on my shelf, unread, for years, so finally purchased the audiobook file. The information seems basic at first blush, but when put into context, the Coaching Tips are priceless. Having never been in some of these situations (fortunately), I now have some idea of how to react should they ever arise - and have a book to reference after I have gone down Ebbinghaus' forgetting curve. Worth the time listening.

All women should listen to this!

There are sooo many jewels/tips that even as a business owner I will begin to apply. I am also thankful for the resources she has sighted to help further with putting these things into action

Be debt free

This book is for the debt free woman, not someone who is trying to get out of debt. I found this to be very disappointing because she wasn’t talking to me.

Good read or should I say listen!!

Narrator held my attention. The author shared relatable examples and practical advice. I'd listen to it again.

Thought provoking

Frankel does a good job of setting out some of the underlying sexisms in the workplace and gives practical tips on how to progress despite these assumptions. The emphasis throughout is on the 'girl' of the title (rather than the 'nice') and how girlish behavior may be causing many women to be taken less seriously, promoted less, and paid less. She's aware that in an ideal world being a girl shouldn't disqualify one from effective management or promotion, but is committed to giving a solution, now, for this less than ideal one. Practical tips include not using the diminutive form of your name, not refusing perks, not killing yourself to pull off the impossible in pursuit of praise and not using preambles when you speak in meetings. Her frankness is refreshing -- she says that one doesn't go to meetings because they get things done, one goes to meetings to be seen -- and although the 'Rich' half of the audiobook is mainly geared to American financial norms there's a good mix of sound, practical, psychology and aspirational thinking there too. In sum, better than you'd expect from the title and the package - any woman who works in a corporation or business (especially one where men in suits set the norms) might find something to take away here.

Some contradictions but over all good

I'll definitely be going through this audio book again and taking more notes. Good advice given

Struggled with narration and format

The information was valid and definitely relevant. I did not enjoy the tone of the narrators voice and format of the content. Would rather more story and examples, than mistake over one, mistake two etc.
