0

Strong and successful alpha (masculine) women are on the rise in the business world, along with feminine men.

Heads are rolling. Amy Pascal will not make it. Sony can do nothing to avoid the avalanche of bad press, snide comments, and our secret enjoyment as we evaluate which of our heroes will fall from grace and whom we will still believe. Truth is, we suspect that certain people are very difficult to work [...] The post Love and Loathing of Internet Leaks in the Age of Authenticity appeared first on The Women's Code. … [Read more...]

Using your Personal Value Proposition To Become Liked and Respected
