   schema:reviewBody ""Gendertraps. They are the result of major and pervasive but, until now, little-understood differences between the way men and women communicate, behave, and wield power on the job, and the different assumptions they each bring into the workplace ..." "Gendertraps. They are present in just about every office - subtly or not so subtly affecting everything from hiring practices to pay scales and from mentoring styles to child care issues ..." "Gendertraps. They can be powerful enough to sabotage careers - especially women's careers! This tell-it-like-it-is, eye-opening book will show you how to make sure they don't sabotage yours!" "Based on 5000 revealing case histories and unusually candid interviews with people in a wide variety of career situations, GenderTraps explores the 10 most common traps - ranging from the most blatant and bold to the most subtle and seductive. There is a separate chapter devoted to each gendertrap, with advice on how to recognize it, confront it, and resolve it. Drawing on the lessons learned by those who have dealt with these traps both successfully and unsuccessfully, GenderTraps is sure to speak to anyone who has ever watched someone with lesser skills being paid more, had an opinion ignored because of gender, failed (or passed) an interview because of looks, been shouted down by louder or more persistent voices, been kept out of the loop and denied important information, been asked to choose between work and family, been the subject of gossip that was untrue." "Blunt and hard-hitting, GenderTraps reveals the way life really is in the workplace, as it arms you with strategies against such potential landmines as prejudicial "isms", confrontophobia, power plays, sabotage, toxic bosses, communication barriers, conspiracies of silence, and much more!"--BOOK JACKET." ;
