The Art of War for Women: Sun Tzu's Ancient Strategies and Wisdom for Winning at Work

The Art of War for Women: Sun Tzu's Ancient Strategies and Wisdom for Winning at Work by Chin-Ning Chu
Publisher: Your Coach In A Box; Unabridged edition (Nov 6 2007) | ISBN: 1596591285 | Language English | Audio CD in MP3 | 341 MB

The workplace is a battlefield, according to author, speaker and businesswoman Chu. In her latest, she distills The Art of War, Taoist philosopher-general Sun Tzu's international bestseller on the fundamental elements of warfare and business strategy, into a primer and call-to-arms for working women. In vivid battlefield terminology, Chu covers everything from promotions and work attire to dealing with sexual harassment and male chauvinist co-workers. Lessons tend toward a "universal nuggets of wisdom" format; one of the keys Chu advances is "Know Thyself," because "how well you know the world around you is directly proportional to how well you know yourself." Other chapters cover the disposition of winning, conflict strategy, the utility of imagination, techniques for management and "fireproofing yourself." At a time when the ideal of a full, fulfilling work and home life seems more difficult than ever to achieve, Chu's primer on becoming "an effective strategist and warrior" will give doubters cause for reconsideration.

From Booklist
In one slim book, consultant and author (Thick Face, Black Heart 1992,^B and others) Chu clarifies any mystique surrounding the enigmatic Sun Tzu's treatise on the art of war--plus translates his philosophies into practical strategies for women at work. The heart of her tale? To thine own self be true--and, further, vow to transform weaknesses into strengths. After all, elements of success (winning wars, that is) are just as critical today as 2,500 years ago: the combination of ethics, timing, resources, leadership, and managing are integral to the personalities of the best executives, men and women, today. For sure, her Sun Tzu interpretations can be added to the regular B-book litany of style and substance, personal resumes, and manager-ready qualities. On the other hand, prepare to spend time with more unusual topics, all replete with excellent advice: dealing with spies and con artists, assessing possibilities and perils of specific business terrains (that is, friendly versus complex), and insulating yourself from firestorms and other company tragedies.
