It’s Not You, It’s the Workplace

Alton B. Harris, Andrea S. Kramer
Authors:
Alton B. Harris, Andrea S. Kramer

Why is it that many women believe that working with other women is harder than working with men? A clue: it's not because women actually are harder to work with.After decades of working to help women to succeed at work, Andie Kramer and Al Harris noticed the same thing over and over again: Women's relationships with other women are causing conflict in the workplace and this is hindering careers across the board.Their research demonstrates that at the root of these clashes lie stereotypes, toxic assumptions and societal expectations about how women should behave. Through extensive research and hundreds of interviews, Andie and Al have identified the most fraught scenarios of women working for, working with, supervising, and collaborating with other women. It's Not You, It's the Workplace provides practical, immediately usable techniques that will allow women to develop strong networks that will foster their career success and organizations to structure their policies and practices - unlocking the potential of women in team situations. The companies that succeed in the future will be those where bias no longer blocks women's career satisfaction or advancement to leadership.

The Franchising Handbook

Carl Reader
Authors:
Carl Reader

Most small business books focus on what it takes to start a small business, and not what it takes to start a franchise. At best, these books might allocate a single chapter to the concept of franchising, and at worst the author presumes that franchises are the same as any other business start-up. The world of franchising has its own nuances, and advice that works for 99% of start-ups would not apply to franchising. In fact, well-meaning advice can often be detrimental to potential franchisees.This book is focused on making sure that potential franchisees are aware of the specific journey ahead of them. As franchising is a two-way business arrangement, it includes exactly what franchisors are looking for, what can or cannot be negotiated with a franchisor, and how best to present yourself to ensure that you win the franchise you want.
