Want to know how to unleash your power as a woman by using your unique feminine advantages to succeed in the modern workplace? Linda Smith is on a crusade to teach all women how to harness their exclusive feminine superpowers—what she calls their Kick Assets— to rise in business without having to lean in, or become a mini-man, or beat the men at their own game, After succeeding for decades in a cutthroat, male-dominated profession specifically by using her skills as a woman Linda knows how to become a leader of men. Let her show you how.
Linda provides women a full understanding of their superior emotional intelligence—the universally recognized marker for leadership success. She tackles an “eyes wide open” discussion of the need to slay the two ferocious dragons guarding the doors barring women from equality—the external dragon of male domination and the internal dragon of self-sabotage. She provides women with dragon slayers to defeat both dragons, and goes on to show women how to use the dragon slayers in the workplace. As part of the program, Linda tackles how to handle difficult men and shut down sexual harassment; how to infiltrate the old boys’ network and speak truth to power; how to establish dominance and lead with gusto and how to leave a legacy.
Linda Smith is one of the few women to reach the summit of the legal profession. She has represented the world’s foremost companies in “bet-the-company” cases where everything is at stake.
Linda's successes have allowed her to do wondrous things: travel the world to meet with clients and foreign governments, appear before the U.S. Supreme Court, match wits with Michael Dell and Viacom chairman Sumner Redstone, counsel boards of directors with tens of billions of dollars on the line, and walk the red carpet at the Golden Globes with George Clooney and Viola Davis.
Smashing Glass and Kicking Ass is an excellent resource for women, regardless of age or ethnicity. Linda Smith does an inspiring job of not only succeeding in a "man's world", but imparting very concrete and specific advice for other women reading her book to follow in her footsteps. I highly recommend this read for all who are trying to make it out there
As a husband and a father of 2 daughters this was a must read to understand the challenges women are facing in our society. And more importanty, it shows them a path to success by building on their strengths as women rather than trying to act more like men. Linda Smith is too skilled in understanding and advoacting emotional intelligence to be as mean as she thinks she is.
This is a great guide to using your assets to their fullest potential in a world still sadly dominated by men. Peppered throughout with personal anecdotes, the book is a fun, refreshing rebuttal to the "lean in" philosophy. The nuggets of advice are not formulaic, as you sometimes get with these kinds of books. I found them to be insightful, and practical.
Alternatively, you're welcome to send Linda an email or call to book a consultation.
