This insightful book reminds us that failure is a stepping stone to success. Successful people are able to say to themselves, “While I may have screwed up, it doesn't mean I am a screw up.” In this book, some women talked about walking away from terrible supervisors or from jobs that were sapping the life out of them, this section is called “Learning to Say No.” Other women discussed experiences that taught them self advocacy, these are in the “Learning to Ask” section. Stories in “Learning to Take Charge of Your Own Narrative” are about coming to recognize strengths and becoming more purposeful. Finally, there is a section called “Learning Resilience” – on getting back up after being knocked down. There is power in talking about our mistakes and failures. My hope is that in reading the stories in this book, you will be reminded that no one is perfect – not even these amazing women – and that it will help to propel you forward. The problem is that anyone who wants to innovate, gain recognition, or become a leader will need to take risks and realise that mistakes are inevitable. People must understand that making mistakes is part of growing at work.
