Overview

This book is an informative and practical guide to understanding the importance of confidence—and learning how to achieve it—for women of all ages and at all stages of their career. Working women today are better educated and more well qualified than ever before. Yet men still predominate in the corporate world. In The Confidence Code, Claire Shipman and Katty Kay argue that the key reason is confidence. Combining cutting-edge research in genetics, gender, behavior, and cognition—with examples from their own lives and those of other successful women in politics, media, and business—Kay and Shipman offer the inspiration and practical advice women need to close the gap and achieve the careers they want and deserve.  Este libro desmenuza una de las cualidades más discutidas pero menos entendidas del comportamiento humano: la autoconfianza. Desde sus orígenes (¿la heredamos o la aprendemos?) hasta sus manifestaciones (¿la mostramos de manera agresiva o discreta?), las autoras nos guían en una exploración por el mundo de la confianza y la duda para fomentar comportamientos positivos y fructíferos para la vida laboral, social y familiar.
