For Women Only in the Workplace: What You Need to Know about How Men Think at Workby Shaunti Feldhahn
Synopses & Reviews
Do You Know the Unwritten Rules of the Workplace?
As a veteran of Wall Street and Capitol Hill, Shaunti Feldhahn knows that even the most experienced Christian businesswoman can inadvertently sabotage her career simply because she doesn’t know how her male supervisors, colleagues, and employees think.
For Women Only in the Workplace gives you startling insights into the expectations and perceptions of men at work. Whether you work in a corporate setting, a small business, or a ministry, you’ll find Shaunti’s research invaluable as you discover:
What you need to know about a man’s hidden insecurity
What “it’s not personal, it’s just business” actually means to men
How men view emotion in the workplace—and what they consider to be emotion
How what you wear can significantly hinder your effectiveness at work
The secrets to being strong and competent—without being viewed as difficult
Based on eight years of intense research, extensive interviews, and national surveys of more than 3,000 men—from CEOs to assistants, from factory workers to lawyers—For Women Only in the Workplace gives you the keys you need to be who you are and be respected and successful wherever you work with men.
Includes a group discussion guide.
This expanded edition includes faith-based insights throughout, plus an added chapter with supportive application and wisdom from senior Christian women in the workplace. Feldhahn brings her innovative research approach to the workplace to help women understand their male colleagues.
