New business book for women: The Corporate Dominatrix

Posted on October 30, 2009

As a writer of workplace novels, I try to stay up on the latest and greatest new business books that are out there. There is generally a clear distinction between self-help and narratives, but I do not think it always has to be like that. Enter author Lisa Robyn, who has recently released her newest title, "The Corporate Dominatrix: Six Roles to Play to Get Your Way at Work." From the website, the book "shows women how to role-play their way to success by employing the tactics of the six mistress archetypes of The Corporate Dominatrix: Goddess, Queen, Amazon, Governess, Nurse, and Schoolgirl."

The website provides sample chapters of the book, a quiz and an MBA degree … that's Mistress of Business Administration. Robyn has been involved with a number of business-related books and Dilbert, so I suspect this one will be really good. I look forward to reading and perhaps recommending it as a perfect companion to "Corporate Ties."

Louella Christ…

Hello Ben,

Hope it's "OK" to be writing here...... Just wanted to say what at a lovely surprise to accidentally find my name and book title here. Bless your heart.

In the few weeks, my book - Silent Sagas: Unsung Sorrows - will be available as a second printing and it will also be an e-book then as well.

I recently heard from a woman in England and another in Australia -- both thanking me for having written such. Am surely grateful it was an encouragement and support for each of them.

How are you? Thanks, again, for including my book here in your site.

Take care.
