WOW Sep 26, 2008
WOW! Knock em dead advice for us girls! a must have in the business world
Excellent! This will truly change the rest of your life.... Aug 22, 2008
OK, I didn't even know this book existed until my job was eliminated, I was sent home on severance and unemployment checks, and am trying to look for a new job.
Because I am home for now, I had the opportunity to watch John Hagee on TV, and saw the interview with Dondi. From the first moment, I KNEW I was hearing from an anointed, professional, and lovely person. I have been in the corporate world since 1985, starting out as a clerk, and now am at the executive assistant level.
I have applied for many wonderful-sounding opportunities, and have been interviewed, but the doors have not opened yet. I am 60 years old, look more like 45-ish, but I am facing something I have never had to face before: my competition is the age of my daughters and grand daughters!! I could tell I needed to learn something more before God would open that door to my new job.
I have read every review to date, and I totally concur with all of them (except the one negative response). Not only do some professionals (I guess I am referring to men) not take women seriously, but when they have to answer to a highly successful female, they consider her a [...] (pardon me) most of the time. And forget it, the rest of us females are either not taken seriously, or, if we are upwardly mobile, we realize that we have to play tough, really tough sometimes, just to be respected. A vicious cycle.
My hat is off to you, Dondi. Thank you for being so used of God, and for helping us to not only succeed professionally, but to bring glory to our Sweet Lord in the process.
I, too, look forward to hearing more from you.

It's not just our imagination. Women do have unique challenges when it comes to the workplace. Women are often overlooked for promotions. They tend to make less money. Many find themselves delineated to den mother status.
With that said, much of what happens in the workplace is of our own making. We patiently wait for our boss to notice our efforts. We shy from conflict or any sort of negotiations. Then, when we are asked for input, we talk more about our problems than our successes.
Designed for Success looks at both the problems that women often experience in the workplace and the unique qualities that they possess. Given the right outlook, the appropriate skills, and understanding of workplace dynamics women can be a valuable asset to the office.
