Book Description

Leading career coach Anna Runyan, founder of ClassyCareerGirl.com and Professor of Career Development at DeVry University, shares with you her secrets to leadership success, gleaned from her years of management experience in a male dominated field. Her career advice has been featured in Yahoo Finance and People StyleWatch magazine, and her site has recently made the Forbes "Top 100 Websites for Your Career" list. Let Anna show you how to utilize the unique strengths you have right now, and instill in you the confidence to be the best leader at work tomorrow.

If you've ever thought that men can seem difficult to figure out, let alone manage, then this guide is for you. Through step-by-step exercises and practical techniques, Anna will demonstrate the most effective ways to communicate with and manage your male employees. This straight-talking guide will take you through exercises to help conquer the perfectionism that undermines so many of our careers. You'll learn to assert and promote yourself, and to coach your team to be successful in their own careers, establishing their trust along the way. Finally, you’ll learn what not to do when managing men and how to expertly handle management situations you might have floundered in.
