Despite all of the progress we've made toward equal rights over the last few decades, less than 4 percent of America's largest companies employ women as senior executives. This is not, according to business coach John M. McKee, because female professionals lack the desire or ability to lead. In his thirty years of experience in corporate life, McKee has found that a working woman cannot improve her situation until she more actively manages her career, gains a better understanding of the traditionally masculine culture of the workplace, and refuses to accept lower pay scales and unequal treatment.

If you want to take control of your career-and not depend on those who consciously or unconsciously subscribe to a lingering "old boys" mentality for advancement-you need this book. 21 Ways Women in Management Shoot Themselves in the Foot presents specific, practical tactics that will help you rise to the top:

How to navigate gender bias in the workplace (it still exists ) How to avoid common habits that will sabotage your career The single most important tool used by highly successful professionals

And much more . . .

About the author (2006)

Known as "the woman's success advocate," John McKee has been a business coach since 1988. A former senior executive who has worked in boardrooms and executive suites across North America, he was a part of the original founding senior executive team of DIRECTV prior to establishing BusinessSuccessCoach.net. He knows what works and what doesn't, and provides a wealth of information to his clients in a unique, easy-to-digest package. John has created a new coaching method specifically for business clients. His Four Windows Process guides people through a series of steps in which they create a status review, then develop a game plan to move forward with clearly defined and clearly timelined objectives for career, finance, and personal life. Unlike other, more tactical coaching methods, the Four Windows Process is strategic, holistic, and encompassing. John's clients have found it to be an excellent tool for getting tangible results in a very short period of time.
