Sarah Cooper is a writer, comedian, and the creator of TheCooperReview. She recently wrote a “handy” and satirical book that serves as a “guide” for women in leadership roles. It shows just how women can effectively communicate with their sensitive male co-workers, and how to be a successful woman without hurting men’s feelings.
She wrote her blog post about “tricks on how to appear smart” after working in tech giants like Google and Yahoo for years and being a first-hand witness of the double standards that women face in the corporate world. Cooper went on to quit her job in order to write her first book named “100 Tricks to Appear Smart in Meetings”, and her latest book is likely to confuse that strong XY chromosome types. Check out her many helpful strategies on “how to win your way back into their hearts” below, and enjoy!
She wrote that female leaders need to make sure they’re not perceived as pushy, aggressive, or even competent in the fast-paced business world, and one way to do that is to alter your style to account for the fragile male ego.
