Brigitte  Witzer - The Diligence Lie


Why working hard does not always pay off

How can we create an economy that serves people instead of dominating them, the managers as well as workers? In the business world, it is assumed that women are not “good enough” for top positions, and many women say that for their part they would not be interested in the games played by men in the upper circles of power.

Can we not find new helpful rules, roles, and concepts for both women and men? Brigitte Witzer aims for a social reorganisation that would affect men and women equally, while making the insights of women the motor of this transformation.

•Cooperation instead of competition: how women can make it to the top and men can learn to appreciate them

•Provocative and intelligent: the new book from the bestselling author
