Become the project manager of your career and advance in your job no matter what obstacles you face

Have you ever met the requirements for a promotion, but still didn't feel qualified enough to take on the new role? Has a male colleague ever repeated what you just said in a meeting, and received positive feedback as if he said it first? Has anyone every implied that you should be less confident and direct, and more “likeable”?

Innovation thought leader and former Fortune 50 executive, Daphne E. Jones has experienced her share of dog whistle disempowerment throughout her career—but she didn’t let it stop her. Instead, she developed an actionable system for overcoming imposter syndrome, negativity and building the career of her dreams—and now she shares her winning approach with you. In Win When They Say You Won’t, Jones walks you through the process of:

  • Envisioning what success looks like to you
  • Prioritizing your objectives and mapping out how to achieve them
  • Working your plan, soliciting constructive feedback from other stakeholders, and altering your strategy as needed
  • Reflecting on your accomplishments and lessons learned, while defining your next win
"You don’t have to rely on what women, especially women of color, have needed to do for a hundred years—that is, to work twice as hard to get half as far,” Jones writes. “We can work twice as smart, just like businesses do, and go further than you ever imagined. Don’t wait for change to only come from above, you can use my strategies to advance right now, even in seemingly impossible situations.”

Win When They Say You Won’t provides the inspiration, insights, and tools you need to deconstruct any momentum that has been set against you and take your career to the next level—starting now.
