Books That Make You Succeed in the Workplace, and Avoid Burnout

More and more, it’s becoming important for women in the workplace to recognize that the old rules no longer apply, and to adopt a new playbook.

Women may be natural leaders, but they’re burnt out. Even after playing by the rules, they still don’t achieve their much-deserved leadership roles. Now, with Randi Braun as their coach, they stand on the edge of something major.

Randi addresses subjects such as addiction to perfectionism, the reasons for burnout and unhappiness, what exactly is broken with the old system, the hard process of silencing our inner critic and rising above the quest for external validation.

A sought-after thought leader, speaker, and author of the women’s leadership book Something Major: The New Playbook for Women at Work (New Degree Press, 2023). Randi’s book brims with stories, testimonials, facts and figures. One play at a time, she’s changing women’s lives—all while wearing pink three-inch pumps.
