I read another review that described this book as "condemning" and "fingerpointing," but this could not be further from the truth. If by condemning and fingerpointing you mean an accountability wake-up call for all the not good tip given to support women succeed, then yes, this book covers it. However, Orr does it in a method that calls for factoring in our well-being and our own narratives to determine what is successful for women. Past initiatives and tropes have been too busy trying to push women harder into the workforce instead of evaluating why so a lot of women don't wish to be CEOs in the first place. Orr looks at the bigger picture with a lot of empathy and amazing wit; I finished the book feeling happier and more hopeful about how I view the future of my career as a writer in the corporate world. Orr's notice is about empowering women in a method that speaks to them on a special and individualized level and encouraging them to be honest about what they wish from their lives and careers, not what someone says they should want. I look forward to reading her future projects.
This book provides a special perspective on the problems that women face in the corporate world. It is very well researched and written, and taught me a amazing about corporate America. The author is humorous and witty, which created the book a thoroughly enjoyable read. I highly recommend the book!
I’ve started several books in my journey to understanding what is event to me at work; none of them resonate and most feel like lifelong privileged executives talking down to me. I never finish them.I am in technology where women are supposed to be underrepresented, yet every meeting is dominated with women. My company is heavily focused on women in the workplace, empowerment, etc, but why are we still broken? This book is why. I had to stop highlighting because the pages were more color than not. My experience has been very closely aligned to much of what is in this book (although I am an individual contributor with extensive leadership experience trying to obtain into leadership). She gets it. She gets ME. Now, how to lead change in an organization that is only interested in the surface...
I loved the book and I believe this is a book that both men and women should read. Very refreshing point of view on the gender gap back up by research and experience. The book also contains some interesting ideas for things that need to happen for the workplace to be true diverse without hurting the well being of women.
the author makes some powerful points about what women wish and, just as importantly, what they may not want. i like the fact she goes versus the grain on a lot of the zeitgeist about women and how they should act in the business world.having said that, i was a bit turned off by her dismissal of different studies and books. her counter to different pieces of research seemed to be no more than different anecdotes involving her--perhaps real at a micro level but not very convincing at a macro e also makes broad generalizations about things like human resources departments that are dubious at best and create me question a bunch of her other l in all, an necessary book and it's amazing to hear her perspective working at fb and google, but it could have been stronger.
I saw Marissa speak before the book came out. She told revealing private stories about her experiences at Google and Facebook, bringing us along on her journey with an inviting humor and wit, also tying in research from behavioral science, management studies, s, she respond a key question: what have we’ve gotten wrong about women at work?But she also provided amazing insights and perspective on corporate dysfunction and how we can improve everything from leadership and talent evaluation, to reward systems, innovation/creativity and motivation.With female-dominant strengths such as empathy and consensus-building being the future of business, and the headlines forecasting that women will dominate the future generations of corporate leaders its no surprise the prescriptions for success is NOT requiring women to act more like men, mistaking traits such as empathy as signals of e book...is truly excellent. Its not contrived or agenda driven. It reads like a memoir with the words and sentiments you've likely felt but never been able to capture.I believe its needed reading for anyone in business (especially managers), and certainly anyone wishing to apply their talents and aspirations to work and careers that matters to them.
This book is a refreshing thesis! It questions our preconceived notions of the gender gap, digs into its roots, and provides potential solutions. While it may seem a bit anecdotal at times, the author qualifies her private stories and adds in a dose of research. I even found myself laughing at loud to her sarcastic yet down-to-earth sense of humor. I happened to listen to the book on audio CD on my work commute and it was time well-spent. I am so glad I bought and listened to this book because it honestly has changed my worldview in positive ways. I hope the author develops a self evaluation and personally-designed solution workbook in the future!
Wow, total respect for the author's arguments as they were rooted in a vast array of research. She did her homework. I remember thinking when I read Lean In why I couldn't relate and I felt S. Sandberg was such a phony. I was never called bossy growing up. I'm not a super aggressive person in the workplace and I don't wish to be. I wish to be myself, do things my way, and climb the corporate ladder (to a degree so that I don't have to sacrifice time with my family). I went on a related journey as this author and have found a lot of happiness for figuring out what I really wish (and not following someone else's story). This book just feels right on. Thank you for writing it and congratulations on your fresh career.
Having trekked in Nepal, I was hooked on this book about a young, but determined, boy who set a huge goal-to hike all 7 summits. Geared for young adults, it's still a unbelievable read for adults too. Awesome what Jordan Romero accomplished and fascinating to obtain his perspective on the difficult climbs and training routines.
This is an wonderful story about a young man who was inspired to pursue a truly phenomenal dream. All the pieces were in place: Growing up in Huge Bear, California, where he could train year-round; a medically trained father who pursued endurance races around the world; a step mom with the training, skills and background to be the logistical backbone for their "Team"; a mom who nurtured and supported her son even though she was very much aware of the dangers his pursuit would bring; and finally a community of supporters that truly place his goals within reach."No Summit Out of Sight" is as entertaining as it is inspirational and I plan to have all three of my own kids read it as well. Written in an easy-going style but with sufficient detail to support the reader feel like they are actually there, this book will be an enjoyable read for pre-teens and up. I believe this book will support kids and adults alike to "Find your Everest"
This book is exciting from page 1. I thought I knew most of the story but I didn't. I have been following Jordan's achievements since he was 10 years old. This is the kind of book parent's should for their child. If you wish your children to have goals in life, read the book together and discuss it. I highly recommend it. Support your children search their Everest.Kudos to Jordan Romero! You are amazing!
This book I used for my book report. I personally think it is a book especially for children because it is written by a kid. I recommend this book to children near 10-13 because it inspires children to follow their dreams which is the main notice of the book. Although for adults, they might think the book is interesting, but won't obtain the main message, but hey! I'm just a child so I might be wrong
My 12 year-old son has to read non-fiction for his AR program at middle school. He usually groans and complains about his non-fiction books, but he loved this one! Told in the voice of a teen, it read like an adventure novel. And it inspired my son to begin working toward his own goals.
My 12 year old boy read this book over the summer as part of needed summer reading. He loved the book, and found it enjoyable and inspirational. Now, months later, he still occasionally brings it up when he's dealing with problems that involve perseverance or challenge. It's a book I'm glad he read.
This is a amazing book! I am 70 years old and bought it for my grandson. Decided to read it first and soglad I did. What an awesome young man and hats off to his parents for doing a amazing job! Really liked the format of the book where it just told the story of each summit and not a lot of additional fluff to ruin this unbelievable story. Thank you Jordan. I will be talking about this book for a long time.
Unbelievable real story of a young man and his dreams. Jordon's dream developed another layer to his character, and created him aware that many, a lot of people around the globe live a far various life than the average American. A amazing read for young teens and adults alike. Well written in first person. I am anxious to begin reading another book by Linda LaBlanc, 'Four Teens Challenge Everest'. While this next one is fiction, the topic matter is similar. Well done Linda LaBlanc!!
Amazing but... Purchased but needs one mod. to create this a assassin application versus others. While there is an "equal time" feature from inning to inning, it is not truly equal: most players obtain almost equal outfield positions yet not all will obtain equal infield pos's. It needs an "AUTO ROTATION" feature that simply advances the player one position forward each inning. This will ensure all players advance perfectly equal through multiple android games keeping players (& parents) happy. Otherwise, other apps work as well, for free.
Amazing application but it gets very confusing when you have to have minimum of 3 female players on the field during any inning for coed rules. Currently the only method to ensure that is by going over the innings one at a time and trading positions with one of the boys manually. It would be amazing if you could add in the minimum 3 female rule as an option.
There are several programming issues. For example, very first android game it will have someone playing the same position 2 innings in a row while 1/2 the squad hasnt played that position. Additionally, there are other program errors such as leaving a position open/empty while having an additional player on the bench. Definitely needs to have the program corrected. It is somewhat helpful though.
Amazing small application Excellent for rotating young players by inning, simple to add or remove positions, and put players on absent to remove them from rotation. Amazing application to ensure all children obtain equal play at the positions they wish to play
Amazing App, Hold Improving it! This is not just for T ball, but for all levels of baseball that concentrate on instruction rather than pure competitiveness. The reason I purchased this was because of the interaction between the reviewers and the developer, so I would like to create a couple suggestions. Uniform numbers for players. A 'notes' field per player (Nickname, Left-hand/right-hand throwing/batting etc... and a free-form text field). Pitch and inning counts (Little League International requires us to track this) Amazing app, thanks.
Amazing application It does what I need it to do. However, there are a couple of things that would create it even better. First, it would be nice to set the batting and view the inning based on the batting order. Second, it would be amazing if you could view the data without having to send yourself an email. Viewing it within the application would create it very nice.
Love it! WELL worth the $2. Makes my life as a Small League Manager much easier. With this application I don't have to worry about remembering who played where and how much time each child is getting in a position. The report tool is awesome! I'm still a fresh user so I will hold updating my review to reflect my opinion the more I use it. It would be a nice addition is the report tool exported as a pdf.
Amazing app. Not just for tee-ball! This is my second season using the app. I should have left a review latest year, but I'm lazy. Recently I had a question about the application and the developer was so responsive I realized I owed him a review! If you have 12 or more players on your roster and only 9/10 positions on the field, figuring out an equitable method to sit children out is very hard to do. This application makes all those decisions for you, allowing you to quickly make a line up that gets everyone participating in an equal fashion. When I first started using the application I was worried that the "equal-time" randomization of assigning field positions would lead to lineups that I just couldn't rationalize as a coach. I wish everyone to obtain equal playing time, but we all know it isn't intelligent to place a child at first base if he has a habit of running away from balls thrown at him. This application lets you quickly work around those kinds of situations by allowing you to easily assign a few key positions each inning, and then with just a click, everything else fills in, fairly. Create/send/print the completed lineup, tape it to the dugout wall and watch your 1st - 5th graders fly out to the right position every inning. 5 Stars!!
Amazing app! Amazing app, easily let's you obtain equal playing time for your players. Even if you have a few positions that you don't wish certain children playing for safety reasons, or skill level you can assign specific positions. Options for 9 or 10 players and rovers. I had an problem and contacted developer via email, fast response and a resolution within a short time. I'm a fan and recommend it to every coach out there struggling to place a rotating lineup together.
Amazing app, very helpful, but needs improvement. Please add an option to make several various rosters, at least 3 or 4. My daughter plays in 2 softball squads and son in 3 baseball teams(travel plus Highschool), and my roster is a mess, hard to search the names I need. Thanks.
This book was surprisingly great! A true whodunit. Some of the things that happened were a small far-fetched, but truly, this story is well worth reading. One thing that did annoy me--the characters need geography lessons. For instance, Dr. Ambrose said he'd worked at a hospital in Fresh York, then moved to North Carolina. He was asked why he'd moved "up" there. Latest time I checked, North Carolina isn't "up" from Fresh York. I actually saw that same error two or three times, so the book could use a bit of yond that, I do feel the ending wrapped up a small too quickly and conveniently and I'm still confused a smidge about another section (which I can't mention due to spoilers), so I'll just say....read this so we can discuss it! It's a book that stays on your mind. The choices we create really can have major repercussions for years to come.
after printed one document with no problem, after that, wouldn't work. error, printer is not available. btw, I have very amazing tech skills! reinstalled , fresh message. printer not responding. tried again today without reinstall and it printed. i did the same steps every time. xerox phaser 6022, Droid turbo 7.0
Application won't begin after single sign on. Begin with application button in web browser does nothing after single sign on. Even after factory resetting my phone it didn't support nor work. I started facing the problem after I signed our of all my sessions in the Fb application for some reason it signed me out of Workplace as well and since then I had been experiencing this issue.
Please change back the application icon to the actual Workplace Chat icon. I am now seeing the Fb Messenger icon, which should not be the case. Also please contain the ability to let notifications to remain on other devices even though it was rest from another device
For some reason, notification sounds hold changing; from being set to "Work chat", it keeps getting restart to a sound file named after a series of numbers. (12345123 something like that). Not sure if this happens whenever the application updates. Nonetheless, still a amazing application to chat with for work matters.
