"Frustrated working with male co-workers? Wish you had a key to understanding the male business mind? Look no further" (Claire Shipman, Senior National Correspondent for Good Morning America). Wouldn't it be nice to have a decoder ring to understand how men think? Cracking the Boy's Club Code gives you creative strategies for winning respect from male co-workers and getting the outcomes you want. In a unique, engaging style respectful of both sexes, Michael Johnson outlines gender communication styles and how to work within them to enable more harmonious interoffice interactions. Learn communication strategies that help you get heard, appreciated and rewarded. Discover hidden rules that govern men's behavior at work. Learn the top ten ways women sabotage themselves. Find out how to offer ideas with authority—and get credit for them. Identify your unconscious habits that undermine credibility. With practical suggestions geared toward the business world, Johnson shows us how men's conversational rituals and verbal power games can cause your best efforts to go unnoticed and unappreciated in the workplace. A must read for women who work with men, this book offers a peek into to the male business mind. Once you've cracked the boy's club code, you'll be heard, valued, and appreciated—without compromising your authenticity. "There's no need to break the glass ceiling . . . just remove it! Johnson gives women a unique peek into the unspoken rules men use in business, then shows us how to use those same rules to our advantage. This book is destined to be a classic for all women in business. Read it and ROCK!" —Christine Comaford, CEO, Mighty Ventures and author of Rules for Renegades
