Ideal for millennials just starting their careers, for women seeking to advance at work, or for anyone grappling with issues of perfectionism, Mistakes I Made at Work features fascinating and surprising anecdotes, as well as tips for readers.

High-achieving women share their worst mistakes at work - and how learning from them paved the way to success.
In Mistakes I Made at Work, Jessica Bacal interviews twenty-five successful women and their toughest on-the-job moments.  These innovators across a variety of fields - from the arts to finance to tech - reveal that they're more thoughtful, purposeful, and assertive as leaders because they learned from their mistakes, not because they never made any.  Interviewees include:
Joanna Barsh, director emeritus of McKinsey & Company
Carol S. Dweck, Stanford psychology professor
Ruth Ozeki, New York Times bestselling author of A Tale for the Time Being
and many more.
