Critic reviews

"How Women Rise is a great read for any woman who wants to identify self-defeating behaviours that are holding her back, gain insight into why she engages in those behaviours, and develop skills to confidently achieve her goals." (Lois P. Frankel, author of Nice Girls Don’t Get the Corner Office)

helpful and relevant synopsis

I definitely felt like this book was speaking to me and learnt a lot however i would have loved some more case studies. esp quantitative case studies. maybe a little humour or lightness. It is however a very practical book if thats what you want

If you are serious about your career - read it!

Would you listen to How Women Rise again? Why?

I am going to listen to this book, again and again. I am also planning to share it with all my lady-clients who come to me for coaching.

What did you like best about this story?

I've just finished listening to this book, and I must say: it says it all about the position of a woman in the workplace. I highly recommend it to every lady out there, who wants to succeed and win the game.

Good insights on leadership roles

In 2022 there are an increasing number of books that are written for women and by women (partially true in this case). I might have partially identified with the context or the author's personality, but the amount of insight and overlap is refreshing, compared to the amount of energy I needed to input to draw personalized knowledge from male-focused books.

I liked the book. I've found myself 'guilty' of many of the 12 habits exposed. Acknowledgment is the first step in producing change. It is not a 'perfect' book, but there are perspectives that didn't cross my mind before.

Incredible

A life changing book. I wish it had been available years ago. I constantly found myself nodding and felt like the writers knew me. Will make changes going forward.

Excellent and a must for working women

This is an exceptional guide and full of insights and practical steps for women who are stuck in their career. We make these mistakes over and over because we’ve been institutionalised by societal expectations of how women should behave - including in work. Much to our own professional detriment and negatively impacting our wellbeing. Thankful that a friend recommended this book... much needed. Thank you to the authors.

Practical advice for women in business

Really enjoyed listening to this audiobook as part of our book club. It’s full of practical strategies to help yourself succeed and focused on women specifically. Found it enlightening - sometimes challenging when self reflecting but that’s a good thing.

This book promotes gender bias

According to these authors, in order for women to rise we must behave like men. Good grief!! If this is the best chance we have in 2020 there's really no hope.
