  • Author Kathleen Archambeau

    From the Queen of England to the founders of Hewlett-Packard, Kathleen Archambeau has worked both nationally and internationally in the day-to-day grit of corporate sales and marketing with the highest-level executives. She has coached CEOs and presidents from three Fortune 500 companies and trained more than 20,000 professionals, managers, executives, students and politicians in 25 states, in 6 countries, on 3 continents. Her client list includes Genentech, Hewlett-Packard, James River Corporation, Johnson & Johnson, Sybase and Symantec Corporation. She currently teaches marketing and organizational behavior at Holy Names University and the University of San Francisco. An award-winning business writer and editor, Kathleen lives with her beloved in the S.F. Bay Area.

Favoring neither the “in your face” aggressive tactics of the “break through the glass ceiling” school of thought, nor the “sugar and spice is everything nice” little-girl approach, Climbing the Corporate Ladder in High Heels shows women how to be outstanding successful and personally actualized without becoming just like men. There are 63 million working women in America, but only nine are top company CEOs. While women make up nearly 50 percent of the workforce, working women perform 90 percent of household and childcare duties. Women are left wondering, “Do I have to make a choice between my career or my life?” This book answers that question. You can have it all…just not all at once.
