Overview

"Regardless of what kinds of shoes we wear, Kathleen Archambeau's book is an essential tool for American women who want to succeed in business
without giving up who they are as women . . . This book re-defines success with an emphasis on women's values, the very values essential to bettering our

- Nancy Pelosi, Minority Leader, U.S. House of Representatives
"I loved the light tone and quick read of (this) book and would recommend it to any women working in Corporate America today."
-Marilyn Atlas, Co-producer of Real Women Have Curves
"Finally, a book about women succeeding in business without sacrificing their health or their families!"
-Cornelia van der Ziel, M.D., OB/GYN, FACOG, Harvard University Medical School Clinical Instructor
Favoring neither the "in-your-face" aggressive tactics of the "break-through-the-glass-ceiling" school of thought, nor the
"sugar-and-spice-and-everything-nice" little-girl approach, Climbing the Corporate Ladder in High Heels shows women how to be outstandingly
successful and personally actualized without becoming just like men.
There are 63 million working women in America, but only nine are top company CEOs. While women make up nearly 50 percent of the workforce, working
women perform 90 percent of household and childcare duties. Women are left wondering, "Do I have to make a choice between my career or my life?" This
book answers that question. You can have it all . . . just not all at once.
Climbing the Corporate Ladder in High Heels is the first book to teach women:
• How to climb the corporate ladder and have fun doing it
• How to use 12 of their natural roles and talents toadvance in Corporate America
• How to thrive in a downsizing and outsourcing global economy
• How to achieve both a rewarding career and a fulfilling life
• What to do when they hit the glass ceiling
