   book is true...read it for ideas on how to deal in the workplace
Here are many good thoughts. It is very true that it is more about who is your buddy at work than on performance. You have to play the game a little bit at least, or you will be shunned. However, sometimes there are unfair advantages that you can NEVER overcome, such as being female... or not the same ethnic background as your boss and friends. Women are valued for sex appeal and deferring to men in the work place... yes it's 2011-but this is still true, no matter what the folks say. Depending on your career goals and pace, you want to move up to... button your shirt to these levels. Work hard and pray that you get a good boss who is not typical ''. This book has good tips for professional environments... but underlying all professionalism.. is bias and sexual tension and unresolved power issues... and yes, I am ticked about it... but this book will give you some great guidelines on how to cover yourself professionally. The rest is murky.

I recently had the opportunity to speak with her! I was myself an entralled by her message and she was dynamic! Her message is just what women need to hear in the work place to help them change or enhance the perspective of those they work for and work with! AAB is an AB professional baseball organization.

Expect to Win is a book that everyone, regardless of gender or profession, should read. It has sound advice for us all, from the business person to the self-employed entrepreneur. The author's advice is valid today in these tumultuous times, as it is in more bullish markets. I bought it for my 79 year old mother, who read it avidly and says she is learning a lot. Thanks Carla Harris for inspiring us to expect the best and the most each day!!!

Carla is a pearl of the book, but above all for someone who weathered the storm to reach back and let those walking into the storm are priceless.

This is the first practical and applicable guide to provide a strategy on how to create your brand image at work.
