Mistakes I Made at Work

High achieving women share their worst mistakes at work and how learning from them paved the way to successNamed by Fast Company as a Top 10 Book You Need to Read This Year   In Mistakes I Made at Work a Publishers Weekly Top 10 Business Book for Spring 2014 Jessica Bacal interviews twenty five successful women about their toughest on the job moments These innovators across a va. A promising concept but disappointingly flimsy on the ground I was drawn to the theme and to what I could see of the interviewee list Ruth Ozeki Kim Gordon but with rare exceptions found a lot of the accounts disappointingly insubstantial of a primerintroductory volume for young women just starting out in the workforce than for seasoned professionals This may be because Bacal is the Director of Smith College s Center for Work and Life so college aged women are her usual audience Unfortunately for the same reason the complete list of interviewees was also a little disappointing Likely because of Bacal s professional affiliation most of them were Smith alumnae While this makes for a fairly distinguished group it also makes for one that tends to be white affluent and Northeastern and reads like a publication disseminated by the Office of Alumnae Relations I would ve liked to have seen women of color on this list and certainly people from a less than middle class background because both of these factors dramatically affect one s professional experienceOverall while there were some gems in here Ozeki s account being my favorite t left me feeling a little swindled

SUMMARY Mistakes I Made at Work

Itus of McKinsey Company Carol Dweck Stanford psychology professor Ruth Ozeki New York Times bestselling author of Tale for the Time BeingAnd many Ideal for millenials 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 reader. I wanted so badly to love this book but I just didn t The idea behind it was really strong but the execution wasn tFor one there was a lack of narrative throughout This is non fiction of course but instead of building on each other the essays just sat side by side loosely gathered by each part title Even within each woman s story there was a certain lack of depth and detail I wish each woman s voice came out alongside Bacal s Instead they all sounded the same It was hard to keep reading or to be truly inspired Maybe if the number of women was cut down and those given bigger sections to develop their lessonAnother thing I noticed was that some of the essays fell into the very trap Bacal criticized in the introduction Mistake seems to be a very subjective term for a few of these women That is some of the mistakes don t seem like mistakes They were also dealt with from a place of distance not many of the women acknowledged how scary or disruptive their mistakes were to them which made it seem like because these women were so successful means they can handle slip ups with ease and grace This undermines the whole goal this book set out to accomplish I didn t feel inspired I felt detached Their tips didn t hit the mark for me even though in general these were sound adviceThis isn t the best book on the subject Can t say I recommend it
