The Art of War for Women, by Chin-Ning Chu
Reading Time of Article: 2 min
Winning without confrontation. The strategies and wisdom of Chinese philosopher Sun Tzu applied to your professional success.
This book aims to empower women. However, unless you are prepared to reflect on your personal, philosophical and emotional problems, you cannot benefit fully from applying Sun Tzu’s ideas. According to the author, women are particularly keen to win with as little confrontation as possible. They have a gift for negotiating, preferring situations that are ‘win-win’ for everyone. On the other hand, they seek opportunities without really thinking about how to attain them. For example, they assume that they will be noticed if they work hard, and this will win them promotion. Chin-Ning Chu argues in favour of the principles set out by Sun Tzu: to succeed, you need to demonstrate diplomacy and take the time to look around you (in your company). For anyone wanting to reflect on the way they work, Apostrof recommends this very worthwhile book.
