Publisher's Synopsis

Many women enter the workforce feeling like they can never make a mistake, and as a result, they don't take risks in the crucial early stages of their careers. Women, and BIPOC women especially, are disproportionally penalised for mistakes, so any risk begins to feel like a bad risk. Longtime DEI practitioner Christie Hunter Arscott equips readers with the ability to differentiate between reckless and intelligent risks using an actionable model built around three mindsets: a curious mindset, a courageous mindset, and an agile mindset. With a step-by-step method for taking risks, making refinements, and assessing rewards, Arscott's approach gives women a flexible and repeatable framework to guide them through this critical career skill. A 2019 KPMG study found that fewer than 43 percent of women surveyed were willing to take "big" risks, including volunteering to do a major presentation or asking for a pay raise. Begin Boldly empowers women to take chances on themselves so that risk-taking becomes an enlightening and empowering antidote for self-doubt. This book will include a discussion guide.
