Abstract:

High-achieving women share their worst mistakes at work-and how learning from them paved the way to success. Jessica Bacal interviews twenty-five successful women about their toughest on-the-job moments. These innovators across a variety of fields - from the arts to finance to tech - reveal that they're more thoughtful, purposeful and assertive as leaders because they learned from their mistakes, not because they never made any. Interviewees include: Cheryl Strayed, bestselling author of Wild; Anna Holmes, founding editor of Jezebel.com; Kim Gordon, founding member of the band Sonic Youth; Joanna Barsch, Director Emeritus of McKinsey & Company; Carol Dweck, Stanford psychology professor; Ruth Ozeki, New York Times bestselling author of Tale for the Time Being; and many more. Ideal for millenials just starting their careers, for women seeking to advance at work, or for anyone grappling with issues of perfectionism, Mistakes I Made at Work features fascinating and surprising anecdotes, as well as tips for listeners.
