Many women focus on their performance, expecting that if they excel and accomplish the most, they'll get the promotions and recognition they deserve. And yet, all too often, women are outsiders to the networks of power and influence where the decisions are made that affect their careers. They may view politics as dirty; they may be slow to self-promote, build and nurture relationships with key stakeholders, and seek sponsorship. The result? They get blindsided, experiencing deep disappointment when their hard work alone doesn't pay off with an anticipated promotion or raise. Ambitious women understand they must play politics, but how can they learn to do it successfully? The Politics of Promotion demonstrates to women the importance of understanding workplace politics and provides them with the necessary tools to successfully navigate the political realities of their organization. While there are many books that advise women to be more assertive and embrace their ambition, and books that address office politics, there is little information focused specifically on how women can successfully navigate the politics in the current work environment. The Politics of Promotion provides a unique and proven method to guide women through the complexities of office politics, so that they can avoid a political "blindside" that may sabotage their career.

Ready to take the next step in your career . . . but not sure what's holding you back? Read on. Leadership expert Sally Helgesen and bestselling leadership coach Marshall Goldsmith have trained thousands of high achievers--men and women--to reach even greater heights. Again and again, they see that women face specific and different roadblocks from men as they advance in the workplace. In fact, the very habits that helped women early in their careers can hinder them as they move up. Simply put, what got you here won't get you there . . . and you might not even realize your blind spots until it's too late. Are you great with the details? To rise, you need to do less and delegate more. Are you a team player? To advance, you need to take credit as easily as you share it. Are you a star networker? Leaders know a network is no good unless you know how to use it. Sally and Marshall identify the 12 habits that hold women back as they seek to advance, showing them why what worked for them in the past might actually be sabotaging their future success. Building on Marshall's classic best seller What Got You Here Won't Get You There, their new book How Women Rise is essential reading for any woman who is ready to advance to the next level.
