Quiet Girls Can Run the World

The beta woman's handbook to the modern workplace

By Rebecca Holman

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

Embrace your inner Beta and get ahead - on your own terms.

What does success look like? 5AM conference calls and late nights in the office? Winning every argument in the office and always getting your own way? What does a successful woman look like? The shoulder-pad wearing Alpha? The dogmatist who rules with an iron fist?

The reality is far more nuanced. Yet women are still reduced to Alpha boss, or the Beta secretary or assistant but when 47% of the workforce are reduced to two unhelpful stereotypes, how can you embrace your inner Beta and be a success on your own terms?

It's an important question because the world is changing, fast. Successful companies need people who can lead with emotional intelligence, be flexible to new ideas and adapt their plans when required, leaving their ego at the door. The Beta woman's time is now.

Beta celebrates the collaborators, the pragmatists, and the people who believe that being nice works and getting your own way isn't always the most important thing. It explores the unsung workforce of Beta women who are being great bosses, great leaders and are still living their own lives: having relationships, making time for friends, having families.

Fully researched and rich with interviews, anecdotes and case studies, Beta will be a smart and entertaining read that really explores the role of women in the workplace today.

I love that this book isn't about pitching women against each other either. There's no "right" or "wrong" way to be the boss - this is the point of the book - there are so many ways to get the job done and feel successful. — Emma Gannon

The Leader's Way

HRH the Dalai Lama, Laurens van den Muyzenberg
Authors:
HRH the Dalai Lama, Laurens van den Muyzenberg

Born out of a decade of discussion and collaboration between The Monk and the Management Consultant - His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Laurens van den Muyzenberg - The Leader's Way represents the synthesis of East and West and provides an inspiring manifesto for business change. The world today faces many challenges. While our total wealth has increased enormously and we benefit from technological miracles, billions of people are living in abject poverty, we face the threat of environmental disaster, and even those in prosperous nations feel insecure about the future. Addressing these problems requires a different kind of leadership which sees things as they really are and resolves them in a holistic way. That is what The Leader's Way offers - a manifesto for change which can have an impact at every level, from the individual to the global.
