The massive influx of women into the workplace in the past thirty years means a whole new category of problems has arisen among women at work. Suddenly, women are working over, under, and alongside other women. Women on the job have grown more comfortable with ambition, competition, and success, but that hasn’t negated the value they place on communication and relationships—on being liked and being nice.
In this provocative social and cultural exploration of the often troubled and painful dynamics that unfold among women at work, Nan Mooney explores how and why some women hurt each other on the job, and what we can do to begin cleaning up the mess.
I Can’t Believe She Did That! provides vivid insights on the emotional toll competition can take on working women and charts a path towards more productive and fulfilling relationships for professional women everywhere.
