I loved the book so much that I bought it for two girls in my team! Highly recommend
Kathryn and Sue in their book will give you the tools and importantly the confidence to handle crucial situations in the work place in a professional manner which will pave the way for success.
I applaud the fact too that is it not just for women employees but is a book creating awareness for men and women employers. Their role is vital yet obvious - allowing these strategies to be put in place will create a better working environment for all and improve their business.
I now work for an organisation who promote gender diversity and social change. This book is a must read. It's fantastic.
