The Confidence Code: The Science and Art of Self-Assurance---What Women Should Know
The New York Times bestseller, now in paperback and updated with a new introduction Confidence. We want it. We need it. But it can be maddeningly enigmatic and out of reach. The authors of the New York Times bestseller Womenomics deconstruct this essential, elusive, and misunderstood quality and offer a blueprint for bringing more of it into our lives. Is confidence hardwired into the DNA of a lucky few, or can anyone learn it? Is it best expressed by bravado, or is there another way to show confidence? Which is more important: confidence or competence? Why do so many women, even the most successful, struggle with feelings of self-doubt? Is there a secret to channeling our inner confidence? In The Confidence Code, journalists Katty Kay and Claire Shipman travel to the frontiers of neuroscience on a hunt for the confidence gene and reveal surprising new research on its roots in our brains. They visit the world's leading psychologists who explain how we can all choose to become more confident simply by taking action and courting risk, and how those actions change our physical wiring. They interview women leaders from the worlds of politics, sports, the military, and the arts to learn how they have tapped into this elemental resource. They examine how a lack of confidence impacts our leadership, success, and fulfillment. Ultimately, they argue, while confidence is partly influenced by genetics, it is not a fixed psychological state. That's the good news. You won't discover it by thinking positive thoughts or by telling yourself (or your children) that you are perfect as you are. You also won't find it by simply squaring your shoulders and faking it. But it does require a choice: less people pleasing and perfectionism and more action, risk taking, and fast failure. Inspiring, insightful, and persuasive, The Confidence Code shows that by acting on our best instincts and by daring to be authentic, women can feel the transformative power of a life on confidence.

Hiding In The Bathroom: An Introvert's Roadmap To Getting Out There (When You'd Rather Stay Home)
From the marketing guru and host of the popular Forbes.com podcast Hiding in the Bathroom, a breakthrough introverts' guide that broadens the conversation sparked by Quiet and moves away from the Lean In approach, offering wisdom and practical tips to help readers build strong relationships and achieve their own definition of professional success. Most ambitious people believe that reaching the peaks of success means being on 24/7-tirelessly networking, deal-making, and keynoting conferences. This is nonsense, says Morra Aarons-Mele. As an eminent entrepreneur with a flourishing business and a self-proclaimed introvert with lots of anxieties, Morra disagrees with the notion that there's only one successful type : the intense, super social, sleep-deprived mover and shaker, the person who musters endless amounts of grit. Hiding in the Bathroom is her antidote for everyone who is fed up with feeling like they must always lean in -who prefer those moments of hiding in the bathroom to constantly climbing the ladder or working the room. Morra knows what it takes to make your mark, and now, this entrepreneur who has boosted the online strategy of clients such as the Malala Fund, President Obama, the UN Foundation, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation shares the insights, tricks, and knowledge she's learned. Filled with advice, exercises to help readers evaluate their own work/life fit and manage anxiety, valuable tools, and stories of countless successful people-entrepreneurs, academics, and novices just beginning their careers-Hiding in the Bathroom empowers professionals of all ages and levels to take control and build their own versions of success. Thoughtful and practical, it is a must-have handbook for building a fantastic, prosperous career and a balanced, happy life-on your own terms.

Driven. Shy. Leader. Wife. Mother. We live in a world of categories - labels designed to tell the world, and ourselves, who we are and ought to be. Some we may covet, others we may fear or disdain; but creating a life that's truly your own, means learning to define yourself on your own terms. In Beyond the Label, Maureen Chiquet charts her unlikely path from literature major to global chief executive. Sharing the inklings, risks and (re)defining moments that have shaped her exemplary career, Chiquet seeks to inspire a new generation of women, liberal arts grads, and unconventional thinkers to cultivate a way of living and leading that is all their own. Through vivid storytelling and provocative insights, Chiquet guides readers to consider the pressing questions and inherent paradoxes of creating a successful, fulfilling life in today's increasingly complex and competitive world. Why should we separate art from business, feelings from logic, intuition from judgment? Chiquet poses. Who decided you can't be determined and flexible, introspective and attuned, mother and top executive? And where does it state standing unflinchingly in your vulnerability, embracing your femininity, won't make you stronger? Wise, inspiring, and deeply felt, Beyond the Label is for anyone who longs for a life without limits on who she is or who she will become.

Gender Intelligence: How Embracing Differences in the Workplace Will Strengthen Your Company and Improve its Value
World-renowned experts on gender intelligence Barbara Annis and Keith Merron suggest it's time to move beyond arguments based on politics and fairness, building an economic business case for gender diversity in the workplace. Despite forty years of laws, quotas, diversity training, and legal expenses aimed toward equalizing pay, opportunities, and working conditions between the sexes, the glass ceiling remains firmly intact. For too long, companies have played the numbers game -attempting to tackle gender imbalance by forcing affirmative action policies and numeric standards on organizations to increase the representation of women in management. Yet, these efforts have rarely been sustained. In this groundbreaking comprehensive analysis, based on more than twenty-five years of in-depth surveys involving 100,000 men and women across dozens of Fortune 500 companies, Barbara Annis and Keith Merron provide a deeper understanding of the multiplicity of forces that have combined to create and perpetuate gender inequality. Gender Intelligence exposes common false assumptions that prevent men and women from successfully performing together at work-myths exacerbated by worn-out theories of gender blindness and sameness thinking. It show how a small but growing number of courageous, leading-edge companies have broken through the barriers to successfully advance women, making the remarkable transformation from compliance to choice-from pressure to preference-and show how it can be done in any business. Gender Intelligence features 17 illustrations.

More than fifty trailblazing executive women who broke the corporate glass ceiling offer inspiring and surprising insights and lessons in this essential, in-the-trenches career guide from Joann S. Lublin, a Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist and management news editor for The Wall Street Journal. Among the first female reporters at The Wall Street Journal, Joann S.

Now, she and dozens of other women who successfully navigated the corporate battlefield share their valuable leadership lessons. Lublin combines her fascinating story with insightful tales from more than fifty women who reached the highest rungs of the corporate ladder-most of whom became chief executives of public companies -in industries as diverse as retailing, manufacturing, finance, high technology, publishing, advertising, automobiles, and pharmaceuticals. Leaders like Carly Fiorina, former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, as well as Mary Barra, CEO of General Motors, and Brenda Barnes, former CEO of Sara Lee, were the first women to run their huge employers. Earning It reveals obstacles such women faced as they fought to make their mark, choices they made, and battles they won-and lost. Lublin chronicles the major milestones and dilemmas of the work world unique to women, providing candid advice and practical inspiration for women of all ages and at every stage of their careers. The extraordinary women we meet in the pages of Earning It and the hard-won lessons they share provide a compelling career compass that will help all women reach their highest potential without losing a meaningful personal life.

Womenomics
Relegating the all or nothing, mommy-wars mentality to the 20th century, Womenomics offers a revolutionary new take on the largely hidden power that women have in the marketplace. Why now? Simple market forces. Companies with more women managers are more profitable, so women are topping every company's most wanted list these days just as a labor shortage is looming. At the same time, the workforce at large is demanding to work in new ways. But Womenomics is more than a marshalling of extraordinary evidence. It also shows women how to take advantage of this historical moment by crafting high-octane careers that don't require all-or-nothing lifestyles. Most appealing, though, are the refreshingly candid anecdotes from Shipman's and Kay's lives. They also share the stories of other professional women struggling with the same issues - women who've taken counterintuitive steps in their careers but who've carved out rewarding work-life scenarios. More than anything, the message of the book empowers and inspires.

The Digital Mom Handbook: How to Blog, Vlog, Tweet, and Facebook Your Way to a Dream Career at Home
Mothers have been looking for the middle ground for more than half a century. Staying at home and raising the kids full-time isn't it. Working full-time and rushing home to tuck the kids in at 7 p.m. sharp ain't it either. Even part-time work outside the house can be a scramble for most women, as they try to 'have it all' between 9 am and 5 pm. To work or not to work? That seems to be the bottom-line question for most women today. But, Audrey McClelland and Colleen Padilla are proving that the equation is changing. Both of them left behind the corporate ladder and Ivy League degrees to stay home with their children; but, instead of assigning them permanent stay-at-home status, this choice was the catalyst to their reinvention. Miles apart, they each sat down at their computers one day and began to blog. Slowly but surely, their audiences grew. The portability of computers and smart-phones, the connective powers of social networks, and an overwhelming desire to happily mix work and family enabled them to move past the Mommy Wars (i.e. stay at home mom vs. working mom) into a territory all their own. Audrey and Colleen literally blogged, tweeted, skyped, vlogged, and facebooked their ways to the top. In The Digital Mom Handbook , they will show other moms how to find middle ground - via the frontier of the Internet - too. Do you want to be a booming six-figure eBay saleswoman? A 20-hour-a-week brand consultant? A local Twitter correspondent? The terms are yours to define. Money, hours-per-week, title - these don't dictate your Digital Mom success. Personal satisfaction does. According to Audrey and Colleen, finding middle-ground requires 7 basic steps that moms can start using now to achieve the kind of success they desire: find your passion (look around, stake out your turf); hang a digital 'shingle' and start typing; find your tribe and forge alliances; let karma breed opportunity (carefully make the most of your network); don't forget the children! (define your version of success and make sure you're truly on middle ground); manage the Benjamins (a.k.a. 'the money'); and, live happily ever after (live your values).

New York Times bestseller! A 12-Month Plan to Financial Freedom A terrifically informative and thoughtful book. - Gretchen Rubin, bestselling author of The Happiness Project and The Four Tendencies In this essential handbook-a blend of Rich Dad, Poor Dad and The Happiness Project-the co-host of the wildly popular InvestED podcast shares her yearlong journey learning to invest, as taught to her by her father, investor and bestselling author Phil Town. Growing up, the words finance, savings, and portfolio made Danielle Town's eyes glaze over, and the thought of stocks and financial statements shut down her brain. The daughter of a successful investor and bestselling financial author of Rule #1, Phil Town, she spent most of her adult life avoiding investing-until she realized that her time-consuming career as lawyer was making her feel anything but in control of her life or her money. Determined to regain her freedom, vote for her values with her money, and deal with her fear of the unpredictable stock market, she turned to her father, Phil, to help her take charge of her life and her future through Warren Buffett-style value investing. Over the course of a year, Danielle went from avoiding everything to do with the financial industrial complex to knowing exactly how and when to invest in wonderful companies. In Invested, Danielle shows you how to do the same: how to take command of your own life and finances by choosing companies with missions that match your values, using the same gold standard strategies that have catapulted Warren Buffet and Charlie Munger to the top of the Forbes 400. Avoiding complex math and obsolete financial models, she turns her father's investing knowledge into twelve easy-to understand lessons. In each chapter, Danielle examines the investment strategies she mastered as her increasing know-how deepens the trust between her and her father. Throughout, she streamlines the process of making wise financial decisions and shows you just how easy-and profitable-investing can be. Capturing a warm, charming, and down-to-earth give and take between a headstrong daughter and her mostly patient dad, Invested makes the complex world of investing simple, straightforward, and approachable, and will help you formulate your own investment plan-and foster the confidence to put it into action.

A Uterus is a Feature, Not a Bug: The Working Woman's Guide to Overthrowing the Patriarchy
A rally cry for working mothers everywhere that demolishes the distracted, emotional, weak stereotype and definitively shows that these professionals are more focused, decisive, and stronger than any other force. Working mothers aren't a liability. They are assets you-and every manager and executive-want in your company, in your investment portfolio, and in your corner. There is copious academic research showing the benefits of working mothers on families and the benefits to companies who give women longer and more flexible parental leave. There are even findings that demonstrate women with multiple children actually perform better at work than those with none or one. Yet despite this concrete proof that working mothers are a lucrative asset, they still face the Maternal Wall -widespread unconscious bias about their abilities, contributions, and commitment. Nearly eighty percent of women are less likely to be hired if they have children-and are half as likely to be promoted. Mothers earn an average $11,000 less in salary and are held to higher punctuality and performance standards. Forty percent of Silicon Valley women said they felt the need to speak less about their family to be taken more seriously. Many have been told that having a second child would cost them a promotion. Fortunately, this prejudice is slowly giving way to new attitudes, thanks to more women starting their own businesses, and companies like Netflix, Facebook, Apple, and Google implementing more parent-friendly policies. But the most important barrier to change isn't about men. Women must rethink the way they see themselves after giving birth. As entrepreneur Sarah Lacy makes clear in this cogent, persuasive analysis and clarion cry, the strongest, most lucrative, and most ambitious time of a woman's career may easily be after she sees a plus sign on a pregnancy test.

Darling, You Can't Do Both: And Other Noise to Ignore on Your Way Up
Janet Kestin and Nancy Vonk have built their careers on unconventional creative thinking. As the team behind Dove's Evolution video, they famously stripped away the photoshopping, lighting and make-up to sell real beauty. But after years of winning awards for rethinking brands, they realized that they wanted to spend more of their time rethinking the way we work-or, in many cases and places, the way our work doesn't work for us, and especially for women. And so they tackled the problem in their hallmark style-by turning expectations upside down and shaking them. Soundly. Darling, You Can't Do Both, is a smart, relatable guide for all of the women who embraced the spirit of Lean In but were left wondering where to start-how could they, in all industries and at all levels, really start to change the institutions they work in from the ground up. Janet Kestin and Nancy Vonk's answer is that women need to start breaking rules they've always tacitly accepted, and start understanding how being a woman in business is an asset, not a liability. They argue that motherhood creates better leaders, that you should be letting the intern help solve your biggest problems and that networking isn't just the icky business of golf clubs and business cards. Darling, You Can't Do Both will spark a new thread of conversation about women in the workplace--one that isn't about accepting defeat or blaming ourselves, but is instead about moving (and looking) forward.
