HOW TO BE SUCCESSFUL WITHOUT HURTING MEN'S FEELINGS

Non-threatening Leadership Strategies for Women

by Cooper, Sarah

Ambitious women are so scary. In this fast-paced business world, female leaders need to make sure they're not perceived as pushy, aggressive, or competent. In How to Be Successful Without Hurting Men's Feelings, Sarah Cooper, author of the bestselling 100 Tricks to Appear Smart in Meetings, illustrates how women can achieve their dreams, succeed in their careers, and become leaders, without harming the fragile male ego.

Chapters include, among others, "9 Non-threatening Leadership Strategies for Women," "How to Ace Your Job Interview Without Over-acing It," and "Choose Your Own Adventure: Do You Want to Be Likable or Successful?" It even includes several pages to doodle on while men finish what they're saying. Each chapter also features an exercise with a set of "inaction items" designed to challenge women to be less challenging.

And, when all else fails, a set of wearable mustaches is included to allow women to seem more man-like. This will cancel out any need to change their leadership style. In fact, it may even lead to a quick promotion!


Sarah Cooper is a blogger, vlogger, and comedian whose satirical blog TheCooperReview.com pokes fun at corporate culture, the tech world, and everything in between. After 15 years working for companies like Google and Yahoo!, she knows her subject well. Her "10 Tricks to Appear Smart in Meetings" post has circled the globe, with 5 million views and counting. Her work has appeared on The Washington Post, Fast Company, Business Insider, Huffington Post, and countless more. Sarah lives with her husband in San Francisco and enjoys 90s rock, standup comedy, and both sunny and cloudy days equally.

How women can get ahead without hurting men's feelings: Getting ahead in the working world can be a tricky tightrope for women. All too often, female competence is not as well-received as male confidence in our corporate culture today. Author and comedian Sarah Cooper channeled those frustrations into her new book, "How to Be Successful Without Hurting Men's Feelings," a humorous how-to guide for women looking to get ahead.

Review: Daily Mail

There's something instantly recognizable about Sarah Cooper's comics about workplace behavior: the characters enduring office inanity with the expressionless fortitude of figures in an airplane safety manual; the perfect snapshots of power trips and microaggressions that would be painful - if they weren't so funny....

Review: Quartz

During the week of first publication HOW TO BE SUCCESSFUL WITHOUT HURTING MEN'S FEELINGS was in the Amazon's Top 100 books and an Amazon "Movers and Shakers"

Quote: Black

...blurring satire with reality... Getting ahead in a man's world can be difficult for a woman. It's a veritable minefield: There are all sorts of things you can say and do that, instead of rightly proving your supreme competence, are interpreted as too aggressive.... How to Be Successful Without Hurting Men's Feelings is the non-threatening leadership guide women must follow if we are to be taken seriously in the workplace.
