Women, Work & the Art of Savoir Faire: Business Sense & Sensibility - Reading Together - Life is Lived in Episodes and Stages

"Ideally, the thoughts presented here can stimulate introspection and personal growth no matter where you are along the career road. The ideas are wide-ranging, from style to stress and even to etiquette, reflecting that a life in business is holistic and about pleasures more than pain."
(page 7, Kindle Edition)

"Life is lived in episodes and stages. Episodes because they are roughly self-contained and somewhat arbitrary, at least as they relate to time and place."
(page 11, Kindle Edition)

"I learned the importance of doing more than is expected and that there are lots of good ideas in business, but execution is what matters."
(page 14, Kindle Edition)

Women, Work & the Art of Savoir Faire: Business Sense & Sensibility - Reading Together


Welcome to the newest Reading Together series. I'll be posting a summary about our reading each week on Tuesdays. Come join us!

We'll be reading Women, Work & the Art of Savoir Faire: Business Sense & Sensibility by Mireille Guiliano. You can get a copy from your local library, your favorite bookstore, or pick up a copy from Amazon.

We'll read one chapter a week.
I'll post about the first installment on Tuesday, February 20. That means you have two weeks to get a copy of the book and to read the first chapter.

The great thing about this program is that it allows us to read works together that can help us in our professional development as well as providing a level of accountability and the added interest of comparing notes as we read together.
