Publisher's Description

Do You Know the Unwritten Rules of the Workplace?
 
As a veteran of Wall Street and Capitol Hill, Shaunti Feldhahn knows that even the most experienced Christian businesswoman can inadvertently sabotage her career simply because she doesn’t know how her male supervisors, colleagues, and employees think.
 
For Women Only in the Workplace gives you startling insights into the expectations and perceptions of men at work. Whether you work in a corporate setting, a small business, or a ministry, you’ll find Shaunti’s research invaluable as you discover:
 
· What you need to know about a man’s hidden insecurity
· What "it’s not personal, it’s just business" actually means to men
· How men view emotion in the workplace—and what they consider to be emotion
· How what you wear can significantly hinder your effectiveness at work
· The secrets to being strong and competent—without being viewed as difficult 
 
Based on eight years of intense research, extensive interviews, and national surveys of more than 3,000 men—from CEOs to assistants, from factory workers to lawyers—For Women Only in the Workplace gives you the keys you need to be who you are and be respected and successful wherever you work with men.

Includes a group discussion guide.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for For Women Only in the Workplace

"The Male Factor is full of practical recommendations for women who want to maximize their impact in a workplace full of male counterparts, and is a must-read for women in leadership. If you’ve ever interacted with a male colleague, boss, or employee, and wondered, "Why did he respond that way?" this book will provide the answers."
—Yvette Maher, vice president of Focus on the Family

"Shaunti Feldhahn has done it again! Revealing, insightful, but most of all unapologetically realistic, she shares in her latest offering, For Women Only in the Workplace, what women need to know in order to navigate through the workplace victoriously. The unwritten rules can no longer be ignored because Shaunti has spelled them out with crystal clarity. A must-read."
— Michelle McKinney Hammond, author of What Women Don’t Know and Men Don’t Tell You

"For Women Only in the Workplace is filled with practical researchbased insights on how men view women in the workplace—insights you can use immediately to reach your professional goals faster and thrive in the workplace. If you find yourself confused by how your male boss or co-workers think or act, Shaunti Feldhahn peels back the layers to help you understand what’s really going on. Candid and revealing, For Women Only in the Workplace is a wise read for
professional women."
— Valorie Burton, author of What’s Really Holding You Back? and How Did I Get So Busy?

Praise for The Male Factor


(The general-market edition of For Women Only in the Workplace)

"The Male Factor is the singularly best business book for women I’ve read in years. This well-researched yet  thoroughly readable book is rich with rare insights into how men really see women in the workplace—and how with a few simple adjustments you can even the playing field."
— Lois P. Frankel, PhD, author of Nice Girls Don’t Get the Corner Office and See Jane Lead

"Many times in my career I’ve been the only female in a meeting or holding a seat on the executive team, and I felt I needed a translator—either to understand my male colleagues or to make sure they understood me! The Male Factor provides that translation. We no longer have to guess at what makes men tick in the workplace. Shaunti Feldhahn asked them, and amazingly, they told her!"
—Stacie Hagan, chief people officer at Earthlink Inc.

"Smart, effective communication is what makes for successful leadership and productive workplaces. The Male Factor sheds light on how subtle and not-so-subtle gender communication differences can thwart a woman’s rise in the workplace. Even minor shifts in communication approach can help women navigate and break through that invisible barrier. There is something here for every woman, no matter where you are in your career."
—Linda Sawyer, CEO of Deutsch Inc.

    Book Description: Do You Know the Unwritten Rules of the Workplace?

    As a veteran of Wall Street and Capitol Hill, Shaunti Feldhahn knows that even the most experienced Christian businesswoman can inadvertently sabotage her career simply because she doesn't know how her male supervisors, colleagues, and employees think. For Women Only in the Workplace gives you startling insights into the expectations and perceptions of men at work.

    Book Review: I found this book insightful. I did not agree with everything in this book, however I did think that there were many things worth learning and understanding. The best way to use this book is to glean information and work with everyone as professional as possible. While there is a treasure trove of research I also think there are just men (and woman) who are just difficult based on the fact that we live in a fallen world. The best that we can hope for is that as a Christian I can use this information to build up people around me.

    I would like to thank Above the Trees and Multnomah Books for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.

    If you are female and trying to climb that corporate ladder then this may be just the book you need to invest in. Eight years of research and study from author Shaunti Feldhahn has brought about her writing this book. It is a great book if you truly want to understand you male counterpart in the workplace. It will help to open your eyes to a men's view of the workplace. Feldhahn doesn't say the men's view is correct she just lays it out as to what it is a women needs to overcome to get somewhere in a man's world - the work place. I got this book with the intent of sharing it with my business "college student" - senior daughter. I think she will and others like her will benefit from Feldhahn's book.

    a copy of this book was provided by publisher for this review.

    I had to force myself to complete this book. Although she has some insightful information in it, I was really disappointed in it. I don't discourage anyone from reading it, but her writing style just wasn't my cup of tea.

    I read the book, For Women Only In the Workplace and found it to be interesting. I learned many insights that I would not have expected in this book. Shaunti Feldhahn does a good job of explaining the way men see things at work. It would be very helpful to woman in the workplace trying to understand her male coworkers. She does not say that men have the only idea or even the right idea just that that is their perception. They truly do compartmentalize their life and consider there to be two truly different worlds - their Work World and their Personal World. Worth reading and maybe it could even spark some discussions. Liked it. I received this book free from Waterbrook Multnomah in exchange for my honest opinion to review.

    Not being a business woman myself, this book probably looked a little silly sitting on my kitchen table. I mean really, why would a stay-at-home mom be reading about how to succeed in the office? I will say though, from my psychology background (majored in it in college), this book was an interesting read. A lot of the information as far as how male and female brains differ was old news to me (thank you Bio Psyc class) but it was quite informative to read the snippets of interviews (with businessmen) included. It was good to read (from the male perspective) about how things like even just getting teary eyed might make other men think a woman isn't professional. Granted, I totally understood that idea, but being a woman it was kind of shocking to read that because it's not always something we can control. Now, and the author points this out, not all men are going to think exactly this way; some will be more understanding, some less. But as a general rule, the results presented are a pretty good idea of how men perceive things. So, while I'm not a professional businesswoman, I still got a better understanding of how men think and I really became a little bit more aware of things I can work on should I ever go out into the workforce. Highly recommended!!
