Discover the deep, dark secrets of the Alpha businessman. As a woman, you know you're every bit as effective and capable as a man is in the arena of business - but that doesn't mean there aren't things you need to know about men and business. In this invaluable guide for the modern businesswoman, former Alpha Male Christopher Flett reveals everything you need to know to understand, communicate, and compete with men in business.To some extent, business is still a man's world; here's how to play the game by their rules-and win: know what the average Alpha Male is thinking; learn 10 things you need to know about men in business; force men to take you seriously; stop self-sabotage with male colleagues; get all the credit you deserve; be more confident and effective; learn to take charge and lead; never make excuses for failures; keep secrets - it's vital; never bring personal issues to the office; gain credibility and trust with Alphas; never look for affirmation openly; effectively deal with condescending or disrespectful men; and, understand why being "nice" gets you nowhere.
What happens when a confessed "Young Alpha Male" decides to break the code of silence; give serious, ambitious women the scoop on how men view women in business; and explain everything women need to know about dealing with men professionally? Everybody wins!
In What Men Don't Tell Women about Business, dynamic young CEO and consultant Christopher Flett invites you into the cigar club for a frank and revealing conversation about what it takes for a woman to reach the top in the business world. His comments may surprise, shock, even offend you-but they will also prepare you for success in an environment still dominated by men.
You'll learn what drives men to succeed, what women do naturally that undermines their careers, why banding together with other women is a losing strategy, and how to show (or hide) emotion at work. You'll also find out how to gain and maintain the trust of male colleagues, overcome poor treatment or offensive comments, and make sure you get credit for your work without embarrassing or alienating the man (probably your boss) who's trying to take it all for himself.
Most importantly, you'll discover the one thing you can do, which all Alpha Males understand and many women don't, that will guarantee you the senior management position, partnership, or substantial pay raise that always seems to pass you by.
Among Flett's more provocative pronouncements are: men put the glass ceiling in place, but women keep it there; Alpha Males do fear women in business, but not strong women; women shouldn't petition for equality, they should assume control; women have a tendency to give up their power in the workplace; bruising a man's ego, even slightly, could ruin your career; and finally, though business isn't personal, your personal reputation means everything.
Perhaps the most surprising of Flett's revelations is that the modern business paradigm is far more amenable to female leadership than male. Women tend to be process-oriented consensus builders, while Alpha Males focus on immediate goals, performance, and distinguishing themselves from the crowd. Too many women, however, sabotage their careers by not knowing how to deal with dominant men professionally.
