Beating the Odds: Success Strategies for the Professional Woman
What separates the women professionals who reach the top of the corporate ladder from the ones who don’t?
Marcia interviewed more than two dozen successful men and women, and tapped the wisdom of her own experience to answer that question. Looking for the causes of success, rather than the source of failure, she found specific differences in mindset, competencies, and rules of the road that contribute to success. From that research, Marcia has formulated specific strategies that women can follow to help them achieve their desired career results.
