Publisher's Summary

Lift as You Climb is a dynamic guide to owning your ambition without having to be someone you don’t want to be. It’s about balancing ambition and compassion, and women being able to strive for personal success while trying to help - or lift - others along the way.

We all have difficult moments at work, times when we feel awkward, when our daily micro interactions make us uncomfortable, perhaps when we have to say no or assert ourselves in a way that makes us feel less like ourselves, less 'sisterly'. Part self-help guide, part master class in survival skills for life and work, Lift as You Climb examines what sisterhood looks like these days, asks what you can do to make things better for other women and considers how to do that without disadvantaging yourself. It's the ultimate confidence bible for women who want to plan a career in a fast moving world, but without leaving anyone else behind. And it addresses one of the biggest issues women face in the workplace - how to be ambitious without losing your sense of self. It must be possible, right? Full of tips, takeaways and invaluable insights, this is everything you need to know about making life better for yourself - without making it worse for others.

I'm two hours in to this and enjoying it so much!

I just finished The Anna Karenina fix and found it so entertaining and funny, and I needed more. Viv describes that tightrope-walk between shameless self-promotion and owning your job and ambition. Some women kiss up and kick down and there's no way around that, but listening to this book is lifting my spirits!
I am enjoying chapter 9. I also work with women in their 20s and I know exactly what Viv means about realising now that the work I was asked to do in my 20s was because I looked right and my competence was incidental... I was pretty, thin, uncomplicated and I thought that the opportunities would always be there, that it'd be an upward trajectory, no loops, no slumps or troughs. As a more experienced employee in her forties, I later found it v hard to get a job, so had that same realisation.
Just finished listening to this. A great listen. Viv Groskop is wise, realistic and funny.

Ideal for improving my self perception.

Chosen to gain an insight to unscramble my aging poor self perception. Ended up being part of my journey understanding how being newly self diagnosed Asperger's Woman. Thank you Viv
