Reviews - What do customers think about Climbing the Ladder in Stilettos: 10 Strategies for Stepping Up to Success and Satisfaction at Work?

Insightful and practical for any professional woman  Oct 13, 2008
This book is more like three books in one, packed full of inspiring perspective, great insights, and most of all, practical action steps and tools. Rather than telling us as women to stifle our feelings and responses in the work place, the author addresses our feminine emotions and needs in an honest, truly transparent way and gives practical methods to help us adjust our perspective and press forward to continually develop the unique person God intends for us to be--women of God with high integrity and positive influence. This book will remain part of my personal library as a resource for life.



 
Not for people who already know where they want to go  Apr 4, 2007
I am passionate about my career and very interested in the particular challenges faced by women in a male-dominated workplace. I did not find what I needed here -- the book is rather aimless and unnecessarily chatty, rather than providing the kind of focus that I expected from a book with such a direct title! Lewis's best advice is to be happy where you are and "find joy" while "waiting for that promotion".

I don't have time to wait for a promotion! If I have a job in my sites, I'm not going to let a day go by just waiting and appreciating where I am. If I was willing to do that, I wouldn't have bought a book called "Climbing the Ladder . . .".

Some will find Lewis's religious sentiments comforting and inspiring, but I found that it gave the wrong tone to the book. She is outspoken about her beliefs that things happen for a higher purpose and everything is planned out for us. Her strategies deal mainly with how to bolster yourself until your big chance finally falls into your lap. If these are not your beliefs, and you need real help to get up and moving, take warning before you invest your time in this book.

As a self-help book for women who need comfort, this is a good choice. If you need practical career advice, look elsewhere. And I can't resist one small rant here. I got tired of her continual plaint: "Poor me! Stuck with this high-power career and all I ever really wanted was to be a stay-at-home mom!!"
 
GREAT INSPIRATION   Feb 22, 2007
This book is one of the best I have read about applying your other life goals to your career goals. I love the exercises that allow you to explore what you are doing and why. This helped me to evaluate my career and have plenty of amunition to show my superiors what I have done to contribute to our work. It also helped me to remedy my fears of the sacrifices my family has had to make for me being a working mother. I love this book. Anytime I get frustrated with work, there are specific chapters I go back to and get re-inspired with. I feel like the author truly understands what is like to be out there in the working world. The great thing is the book shows you how to actually apply the advice she gives you. This will be a gift I will give to every woman I mentor and every young woman in our office. It will also be the book I give my daughter as a graduation present. I loved it!
 
Good for a review of the basics  Feb 3, 2007
The glowing reviews of this book seem to come from women who are entering or re-entering the workforce, and I'm not surprised. Lewis offers a review of the basics, packaged attractively for the 21st century. Midcareer professionals are more comfortable in sneakers and flats, anyway.

Lewis begins with a premise that I recognize among my own career strategy clients: Most of us are yearning for something. Very few folks are content (although I have gotten a call from a past client: "I'm happy now: What do I do?!").

So Lewis sets about offering a much needed answer to a question most folks don't articulate: What do we do while we're waiting in the wings?

In reading the book, I recommend taking away an attitude, rather than specifics of logistics. For instance, if you're in between jobs, you do have opportunities to explore, but many job searchers need to find a place to perch, fast. They need money. And while What Color Is Your Parachute deserves to remain on the best-seller list, mid-career midlife professionals will benefit more from books like Working Identity and Second Acts.

Ultimately, she says, while on your job, use the opportunity and never stop looking. Good, basic advice. Not new but always worth repeating.

I especially liked her discussion of her own long search for a spouse and family. When invited on blind dates she learned to ask questions before agreeing to meet a new man. I find this process applies to many arenas of life, such as networking opportunities. The challenge is to go out a lot at first, without asking too many questions, and then sort out what will be truly useful.

I do have some qualms about the chapter on mentoring. Unless you're especially well-connected, these days you have to pay for mentors, especially if you're setting up an entrepreneurial venture.

As for a Personal Board of Directors, I love the idea, but question whether most people will be able to put this Board into place. In her book Tough Choices, Carly Fiorino shows us how a bad board can be destructive; unless you can recruit strong, selfless board members, you might be better off hiring your own consultants and coaches.

On Lewis's Board, her web site committee includes a designer and a woman who's "between jobs" who appears to be a strategist. Are these folks donating their time? Seems a bit much to ask, if they are. I can't help nothing a key website committee omission: a copywriter!

Finally, the image of climbing the ladder in stilettos will appeal to certain types of women, perhaps a clever way of identifying and reaching the book's target market. These days I see more and more women wearing tasteful flats to work. I defy convention by attending networking events in a nice pants outfit with my white sneakers. I can't walk across the room in Manohlo Blahniks. And while I admire the homage to shoes in Sex and the City, that image (and the show) are *so* over!
