No Sex at Work
by Judith Beck
Award-winning author Judith Beck is a gender diversity champion who has mentored scores of successful executives during her 20-year career as a leading recruiter.
No Sex at Work, Judith inspires you to see yourself as an individual, not a gender. Success at work is not about your sex, it’s about you.
Over her 20-year career as business owner and leading recruiter in the financial services industry, author Judith Beck has seen why some people are successful and others aren't. She has discovered what the top 10 per cent of the most successful managers do differently, and she shares these insights in this fascinating book.
Judith Beck believes most issues we encounter at work are a result of specific behaviours – it’s nothing to do with our sex. The fact that you are a man or a woman shouldn’t be relevant in determining your success in the workplace. If you want to be among the top 10 per cent of high achievers in the workplace, you need to focus on how to get from A to B as a business professional. Don’t be side-tracked by the imaginary barriers you believe are holding you back due to your sex. The skills needed for business success are the same for everyone.
Keep sex out of work by focusing on:
- The soft skills you need to handle certain situations in the work environment
- The business skills you need to help progress in your career
- How to highlight your capabilities as one of the 10 per cent of high achievers
- How to stop categorising yourself as a gender, race, religion, and any other label society puts on us as an individual or a group.
Judith’s view is that people often put up their own barriers the minute they enter the workforce, instead of just focusing on what they need to do to be successful in their role. She believes you can improve your chances of success if you follow the basic principles outlined in this thought-provoking book.
No Sex at Work is not a book exclusively for women (or for men), it is for anyone looking for practical advice to advance and fast-track their career.
