Prof Women Hand men

If you want to lead big, you have to know how to lead men – and that ain’t easy. Good thing you found this book. Because in these pages you will learn how to earn respect by focusing on what matters, leveraging your strengths, and being professional without being a robot in heels…

-Emily Bennington, Founder of Awake Exec™ Conscious Career Design, Author of Who Says It’s a Man’s World: The Girls’ Guide to Corporate Domination


I’ve worked in male dominated environments for over a decade, and while I’ve been able to advance, I wish I had read a book like this early in my career.

-Amanda Esquivel

My Thoughts

After reading, I was most pleased with the authors break down of concepts into real world application. So many times you get an author with more focus on the theory that they forget this is the real world and I don’t have a lot of time to devote to one-on-one meetings and after work socials. I found this book to be most helpful in my communication with men and understanding how to coach to their work style. The author also gives great professional advice on different work and social situations. Overall, I am hoping to improve my managing technique for all of my employees without changing the good qualities that already make me a great manager.

Good Luck Everyone! Don’t forget to post what you like below!

Congratulations to the Winners: JoAnne, Lisa C., & Gina R. Campbell

    I have been looking ways to manage men as I have had hard time understanding my male colleagues and at work. The thought processes of men are certainly different than women. I think it is important for every women to understand this and adjust the style accordingly in order to succeed both in professional and personal life. This book would be a great guide for those work in STEM fields where the percentage of women is much less compared to men. Thanks Amanda for sharing your experiences!

      I work in the legal dept. for a large public utility. My boss is extremely hard to work with unless you never have to talk to him. He doesn’t remember anything past 5 minutes and never pays attention. So understanding him is impossible because I do not believe he understands himself. I agree that most men are hard to read, but in the legal profession every word and detail can mean millions. I look forward to reading your book!!!!

    My industry is male dominated, and it has already pushed me to research all that I can to better communicate with my team which is completely male. Reading this book opens my eyes and teaches practical ways to continue moving my team in the best productive direction.

    Working in the construction industry I am regularly surrounded by men, either around a board table or on the job site. I’ve survived and gotten ahead primarily due to the support of a few men that are willing to show that they respect me in front of others. However, it is still a struggle to get my voice heard and a regular uphill battle. With a large group of young women in my office trying to advance their careers anything that can help me help them is a huge resource.
    This book has the potential to affect so many and only for the better!

    What an awesome concept. It continues to be an uphill battle at times just trying to get respect from men in the office. This book helps not only figure out how to deal with them, but also how to gain their respect and gives insight on how to deliver your ideas so that they can appreciate what you do. I cannot wait to read the entire book!!

    I haven’t yet read the book so my only comment can be “Yes please!!” Whether managing someone who reports to you or managing “Up” this sounds like a valuable tool.

    The first step in being a good manager is being confident in oneself and ones decisions. This book will offer tools for clear communications moving forward – which is useful for managing everyone, regardless of gender!

    Complementing stories like Sheryl Sandberg’s “Lean In’, such a handbook is a useful practical guide for women managers. I like how the book first delve into understanding ourselves first, then compare and contrast to bridge the differences for greater success. I believe women have something important to bring to the table, and too often we limit or sabotage ourselves. We all need google maps.

    I had never thought that someone could actually write a descriptive book to help women communicate in a more professional manner. I wish I knew about the tactics along time ago. But I can still move forward and learn from it and teach it to others. I am positive after reading the book I will improve as my past experience has shown sometimes I say something that I thought was clear to the male, to only see it wasn’t. These are tools that a female can use not just in the corporate environment but overall in public places as well. Thank you for insight about the book!

    I was at first skeptical as I have read many items on various styles of leadership of men vs women and wondered how this would differ. After previewing the first chapter, I found that the voice from which the author writes lends credibility & authenticity to the topic. I found myself reading the entire preview of Chapter 1 from which I already gleaned some insightful and helpful tools & exercises. Thanks!

    It gives you practical ways to understand and work in the male corporate environment.

    I really like the insights to managing men, like how not to be the office mom.

    In the past I lead a very successful group of men. Although it was challenging at times, it was a very meaningful time in my life. Now I am trying to find another position like this. I have found that because I am a woman, men do not want to put a woman in this type of leadership position. I am expecting from this book to give more insights on how to explain better the role and how to orient myself in the future.

    I have worked primarily with men for most of my career. I would love to have some tips to make future teams more successful!

    As a single mom for over 16 years learning to understand what to be firm on and what to be flexible on was an absolute necessity. In reading the excerpt I realize now that I have transitioned many of those skills to the workplace. Reading and doing the exercises in this book would definitely help me hone those skills and truly take me to the next level where not only would I be helping myself, my team, my company, but other women I mentor.

    What I like Best About the Book: Because its a known fact men primarily run corporate America and are wired differently than women, this book gives insight to something not offered in the workplace. Additionally, knowing what your strengths are as a female is like having an expensive tool in the shed that came with no directions or intuitive of its use.

    Men and women communicate differently and I like the idea that the author helps, through step-by-step exercises and practical techniques, to make the communication between the two sexes earlier.
