Publisher's Summary

The co-founder of HGTV shows how women can achieve their career goals using techniques of gamesmanship.
New Rules of the Game provides insights, tips and direction to women in business, based on experiences from author and HGTV co-founder Susan Packard's own 30 year career, along with a dozen other prominent executives. Packard advocates for a revolutionary new perspective for businesswomen, which she calls "gamesmanship" - a strategic way of thinking that cultivates creativity, focus, optimism, teamwork, and competitiveness. These strategies are seen in the gaming and sports worlds and often among men, but women can utilize these skills as well to learn to:

Compete outwardly instead of inwardly
Take loss in stride
Provide the emotional distance necessary to succeed at work
Think tactically
Step up with more grit to get the next win
Level the playing field by understanding how male colleagues think and win at work
Add excitement to their careers

Scary views for modern women trying to NOT bend over backwards to fit in. There is even a chapter about how to dress!! Remind me: what year are we in? 2015 or 1965? We are NOT on the football field - we're trying to make a living while loving what we do.
