Unleash Your Inner Bad Bitch: A guide for using project management skills into work life management queendom.
In this must-read book, Dr. Syreeta Bond shows Black women and career moms how to get organized, get shit done and become the baddest bitch in every facet of their life while trying to juggle work and home responsibilities. Drawing on research, interviews, and her own powerful stories of toxic work environments, gender and racial bias, and life’s challenges, Dr. Bond offers readers a series of heartbreaking and insightful reflections on the true power of defying the odds. She shares the key to resilience, showing how she confronted naysayers and haters from her career journey. She also discusses her most valuable practices like “advocating for yourself”, “balancing like a bad bitch”, and “embracing your authenticity” as a strength, not a weakness. With trademark candor and compassion, she explores issues connected to career growth and pivots, encouraging readers to work through the fear and find strength in community.
