High-achieving women share their worst mistakes at work - and how learning from them paved the way to success. In Mistakes I Made at Work , Jessica Bacal interviews twenty-five successful women and their toughest on-the-job moments. These innovators across a variety of fields - from the arts to finance to tech - reveal that they're more thoughtful, purposeful, and assertive as leaders because they learned from their mistakes, not because they never made any. Interviewees include- Joanna Barsh, director emeritus of McKinsey & Company Carol S. Dweck, Stanford psychology professor Ruth Ozeki, New York Times bestselling author of A Tale for the Time Being and many more. Ideal for millennials just starting their careers, for women seeking to advance at work, or for anyone grappling with issues of perfectionism, Mistakes I Made at Work features fascinating and surprising anecdotes, as well as tips for readers.
