Former CEO of Veuve Cliquot, Guiliano (French Women Don't Get Fat ) offers yet another charming dose of no-nonsense advice in this straightforward guide to living a successful and fulfilling professional life. She acknowledges that creating and maintaining a lifestyle of grace, beauty and sophistication is more challenging than ever, especially for the modern professional woman. Happily, Frenchwoman Guiliano shares her sensible secrets to climbing the ladder in a male-dominated world while still maintaining style, dignity and reputation. She shares tips for becoming a great leader and an effective manager; the importance of mastering communication skills; honing your brand through a polished, professional appearance; handling advances in the workplace; and entertaining at home. French phrases liberally sprinkled through the text and a confiding entre nous tone lend a sense of chic and fun absent in other leadership and career guides. (Oct.)
