LocalLEVO Seattle 2015 Book Club // Book Two: Nice Girls Still Don't Get The Corner Office
Before you were told to "LEAN IN," Dr. Lois Frankel told us how to get that corner office in this The New York Times bestseller. Dr. Lois Frankel teaches us how to eliminate these unconscious mistakes that could be holding us back and offers invaluable coaching tips that can easily be incorporated into our social and business skills. The results for hundreds of thousands of women have been career opportunities they never thought possible-at every stage of their career, from entry-level to the corner office!
Stop making "nice girl" errors that can become career pitfalls, such as:
Mistake #13: Avoiding office politics. If you don't play the game, you can't possibly win.
Mistake #21: Multi-tasking. Just because you can do something, doesn't mean you should do it.
Mistake #54: Failure to negotiate. Don't equate negotiation with confrontation.
Mistake #70: Inappropriate use of social media. Once it's out there, it's hard to put the toothpaste back in the tube.
Mistake #82: Asking permission. Children, not adults, ask for approval. Be direct, be confident.

Book Club Structure
We will take 2 months per book, so we can end before the November/December holiday season. We will take one week off between books, just to allow for a break to those who would like it. By no means do you need to adhere to a reading schedule, we are simply providing a mid-book check in point... so if you've read past that halfway point no spoilers when we meet up!
As with any good club, there are a few rules:
1st rule of book club: You do NOT have to read every book to participate! I totally understand if a book doesn't resonate with you so this is not a "you MUST read all books and attend all meetings" sort of book club.
2nd rule of book cub: If you decide to participate and read the book, we suggest committing to attending at least one of the meetings to discuss. You have valuable perspective and things you will learn that the group would love to hear!
3rd rule of book club: We are not going to be a book club that ONLY reads wine labels. While delicious libations might be a part of meetings, we are focused on reading and learning from these fantastic authors and I promise to be a dedicated moderator with discussion questions prepared and I vow to both keep up on track discussing the book and allow us to go on tangents when we get passionate about topics in the book(s).
