Caitlin Friedman and Kimberly Yorio see it all the time: women derailing their careers because they believe that if they just sit quietly, work hard, and please their co-workers, someone upstairs will recognize their talents and dedication, and deliver big rewards. Here, they show women how to leave this fantasy behind and go after their career goals without shame or hesitation. From negotiating a raise or promotion to starting a new profession, Friedman and Yorio dispense funny and reassuring advice for women on how to successfully navigate every aspect of their career. They provide tools for dealing with workplace underminers, successfully defusing conflicts, and managing the personal issues that often keep women from moving upward. Most important, they show women how to speak up, highlight their accomplishments, and get where they want to go.--From publisher description.
