Nice Girls

The company training catalogue includes a course called "Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office". The course is for women (only) who wish to climb the corporate ladder. Much sighing and eye-rolling. If I were young, fearless, and competing for jobs with these women, I'd sign up just to learn what the competition were up to. And I'd litigate my right to attend if necessary! Or not. I've probably never had a corner office because I will always believe that managers, male or female, who understand and tend to their business but remain concerned about their coworkers (nice) will always get ahead. As a favorite little person used to say to me, "You silly, silly man!"
