9780070078956: Gendertraps: Conquering Confrontophobia, Toxic Bosses, and Other Landmines at Work

Based on a survey of 5000 women and men, this text identifies the most common traps that women encounter in the workplace, including power plays, "confrontophobia" and sabotage. A separate chapter devoted to each trap shows how to confront, resolve and move on from it. Real-life experiences of women who have worked through these traps are included, providing realistic solutions to everyday traps and problems.

From Publishers Weekly:

In this forthright guide for working women, Briles (The Confidence Factor) pinpoints 10 major workplace problems that she calls gender traps, traces their sources and proposes solutions. The traps, identified through a survey (1270 of 5000 responded) and refined after 130 follow-up interviews, range from prejudice to sabotage. Underlying the book as a whole is the concern that women be paid fairly for what they do, a matter of greater importance here than more publicized issues such as sexual harassment. Some women create their own problems through apathy, lack of confidence or unwillingness to confront injustice, the author notes. She responds to these situations head-on, urging women to assert themselves, complain when necessary and rid themselves of mannerisms that betray low self-esteem. She tells how to outwit back-stabbers, who are very often other women, and how to move with change. A general surgeon, for instance, swept ahead in her career when she became a specialist in vascular procedures.

From Library Journal:

Although it has been over 30 years since the passage of legislation making gender discrimination illegal, many women report receiving unequal treatment on the job. This is confirmed by consultant Briles's survey of over 1000 women. After analyzing the data, she concluded that the most common trap faced by women today is still prejudice. Other traps she identifies include communication barriers, sabotage, and management chaos. Briles offers practical advice for avoiding these traps, including the specific language to use in many situations. These are turbulent times for much of corporate America, and many women?and men?fear losing their jobs. While the advice Briles offers here is no guarantee of job permanence, her work will be a welcome addition to public library business collections.?Andrea C.
