Play Like A Man, Win Like A Woman

Women make up almost half of today's labor force, but in corporate America they don't share half of the power. Gail feels that the major reason for this is that most women were never taught how to play the game of business.

Gail Evans talks about the secrets to the playbook of success and teaches women at all levels of the organization--from assistant to vice president--how to play the game of business to their advantage.

She Wins, You Win

It isn't enough for women to understand and learn men's rules-they must create their own. And the path to success begins with this single most important rule:

Every time a woman succeeds in business, every other woman's chance of succeeding in business increases. Every time a woman fails in business, every other woman's chance of failure increases.

By supporting each other, women can pave the way for success. Gail Evans talks about tactics and strategies that can help every woman achieve her career goals.
