The Little Black Book of Success: Laws of Leadership for Black Women

Marsha Haygood, Author, Rhonda Joy McLean, Author, Elaine Meryl Brown, Author One World $20 (136p) ISBN 978-0-345-51848-4
The authors, all high-level black executives, seek to ""support women who do not always have access to coaches, mentors, or the 'Old Boys' Network,"" and their professional advice is savvy and sensitive to the challenges women of color face in the workplace. They offer self-affirming advice to rev up a career, complete with ""MAMAisms""-what the authors describe as aphorisms and ""familiar terms, both practical and spiritual, that we grew up with and can draw upon as we travel the road to leadership success."" The authors revisit and refresh familiar tips on staying positive, honing skill sets, having a plan of action and following through, networking, and avoiding common workplace dilemmas. They also provide valuable advice on achieving work/life balance and finding guidance, mentorship, and support. Offering sound advice, practical tools, and warm wisdom, this book will help black professional women get and stay on track and maximize their abilities.
