Same Game, Different Rules
How to Get Ahead Without Being A Bully Broad, Ice Queen, or "Ms. Understood"eBook - 2002
Rise to the top and stay there without becoming a B@#%
In this groundbreaking book, top executive coach and bestselling author Jean Hollands focuses on a dangerous obstacle that continues to thwart many a talented woman's ambition--the "Bully Broad" factor. Tough, assertive, authoritative, often intimidating, Bully Broads have been the driving forces behind some of today's most successful companies.
Unfortunately, Holland explains, many successful women are discovering, too late, that those same qualities that propelled them up the corporate ladder can just as easily ruin them in today's relationship-building, teamwork-oriented corporate culture.
Drawing upon her 20 years of experience coaching thousands of executives at many of today's top companies--including Cisco, Intel, Hewlett-Packard, Sun, and Netscape--Hollands develops a set of 25 rules that help women pass through, or completely avoid, the Bully Broad stage, without compromising their goals or sacrificing their hard-won power and success.
