What if you could transform your company from the inside out? Biased, male-dominated corporate cultures have forced far too many women out of the companies they've aspired to work for. This book is a first of its kind playbook that empowers women to disrupt the corporate achievement game and be catalysts for positive change. It helps women create a clear vision of what their career path deserves to be and make a convincing business case for equality to their managers and senior leadership. You'll learn strategies for overcoming sexist cultural attitudes about gender and leadership, and for dealing with self-limiting behaviors like Imposter's Syndrome and the Myth of Meritocracy. Because relationships are absolutely crucial, the book describes how to build support networks before you even need them and explains how to get actionable feedback that will help you get to the next level—the kind women rarely are afforded. Includes case studies, exercises, and inspirational stories.<\P>
