The SOS guide to common workplace boobytraps
Lidewij Wiersma, Chantal Korteweg, Tessel van Willigen and Marijn Wiersma are currently writing the book ‘The SOS survival guide to common workplace boobytraps’.
The book addresses twenty topics suggesting why we are where we are in terms of gender equality and diversity in the workplace. Because it is often easier to identify problems than it is to solve them, we don’t stop at identifying the hurdles but also give practical, pragmatic, researched and experience based suggestions on how to change.
We frame our solutions using the SOS framework: (1) Self: what can you do yourself, (2) Others: how can others help you and how can you help others and, (3) System: how the system and the (unwritten) rules should change.
Interested? You’ll have to be patient as our book is not yet published. However, you can get a sneak preview by watching our short promo video that introduces the book idea as well as the authors. Or read an edited version of our chapter on Guilt, recently published by Harvard Business Review.
We are on the journey to getting our book published, so keep an eye out for our SOS survival guide!
