Description

In Fearless and Free, author Wendy Sachs provides pithy, invaluable guidance to women stymied in the workplace.

Women tend to be inherently cautious, to the point of overthinking their every move. This may help them stay safer than their male counterparts, but it also keeps them stuck in the action-first, fake-it-til-you-make-it ethos celebrated in the tech world shaking up the workforce today.

What if women embraced the startup spirit? What if they had the confidence to take chances, even if they knew they may fail first? What if instead of agonizing over which step to take, they leapt forward quickly? These are the traits that helped Silicon Valley redefine our culture, and not surprisingly, these are the same lessons that can help all women succeed in all stages of their careers.

With lessons learned from a wide range of women who faced down fears, roadblocks, and failures to reinvent themselves, Sachs's invaluable resource teaches women how to:

  • Boost their confidence
  • Sell their story
  • Capitalize on their skills and expand them
  • Nurture their network
  • Brand themselves—without bragging
  • Reposition themselves for reentering the workforce
  • By taking the disruptive methods that helped Silicon Valley send shockwaves across industries, Fearless and Free seeks to empower women in the workforce, showing them how to lean into their strengths, increase confidence, and make their impact known loud and clear.

        • content:

          March 13, 2017
          Sachs, a former Capitol Hill press secretary turned TV producer and PR executive, challenges women to embrace agility as they manage their careers. Women, she claims, need to “iterate, pivot, and progress,” and to embrace ambition and break free from professional inertia. Rather than follow a direct career path, she says, women need to focus on staying relevant, which mandates agility. Sachs highlights numerous examples of women (from millennials to baby boomers) relaunching themselves, detailing how risk-taking, staying true to oneself, and taking baby steps can move a career forward. Sachs seeks to spark self-confidence, and starts with language. Words such as “sorry,” she states, are a crutch and a power deflator; women need to be straightforward and not undermine themselves with their words, never opting for likability over projecting confidence. She moves on to related topics such as posture, networking, resilience, and failure. She includes an exceptional chapter on rejoining the workforce after either leaving or being forced out, and shows the value of gap years. By embracing a zigzag approach, Sachs shows how to carve out a career filled with success and fulfillment. Agent: Albert Zuckerman, Writers House.
