Book Review: Leapfrog by Nathalie Molina Niño

Book Review: Leapfrog by Nathalie Molina Niño

The point of Leapfrog isn’t to identify how tough it is to “break the glass ceiling” as a POC, or lament on how difficult is it to prove your merit as a minority - no, this book is all about leapfrogging all of those setbacks and pushing them far behind you on your march to the top. 

Niño offers 5 sections of leapfrog hacks that deliver a total of 50 different hacks, and each is accompanied by a unique story of business success that was achieved by minorities, nearly all of them female.

Book Review: The Myth of the Nice Girl by Fran Hauser

Book Review: The Myth of the Nice Girl by Fran Hauser

In “Myth of the Nice Girl”, Fran Hauser talks a lot about how to give nice feedback, how you be a nice mentor or how you look for a mentor as a nice person. How you deal with people that are not nice. How do you deal with bullies in the workplace and all kinds of other topics in between. What I really loved about it is that she told a lot of stories from women that she knows, but she’s also conducted a pretty intensive research survey on women in business before writing this book.
