Alpha Female in Training

Alpha Female in Training

Coming Soon!

By Natalia Locatelli

Natalia Locatelli, Dr. Corá ’s daughter, was instrumental in helping Dr. Corá  bring humor to a poignant and usually avoided theme for Alpha Female: Leader of a Pack of Bitches—women’s behavior in the workplace.

Natalia is the author for the upcoming sequel to Alpha Female: Leader of a Pack of Bitches, Alpha Female in Training.  But there’s still time to contribute to the book!

Here are some examples of contributions from Fortune 500 executives:

I have been in corporate America for 13 years, in those years I have had 15 bosses, 9 of them females and 6 of them males. I know this because when I was considering switching jobs, yet again, my husband said to me, “You are going to work for a woman? This is NOT going to work out!” I was surprised at his statement, but hey he has been with me for 20 years, so he has been with me through each and every one of my bosses and in his mind, I was a happier girl, when I was working for a man.

I therefore wrote down every single boss I had in the last 13 years, noted their gender, and decided I would put a "+" next to their name if I liked working for them and a "–" if I did not. Well NONE of the men got a negative, 4 of the 5 women got a negative, and as I looked at the names, the negatives, were strong negatives. On the positive side for women, in my little home analysis here, I did decide that the best boss I had ever worked for was one of the women. (Oh and by the way, my husband was right, that position, did NOT work out).

Instead, the minute that Prima Donna came into her new position, she stopped speaking with me, totally ignoring me as if I were not in the room. It was quite different working with her than for her.

I would be happy to share my story if it helps other people... I accepted a job in late (month) and resigned one month later because of the boss lady. The annual voluntary turn over was 45%. I learned that fact the day that I resigned. My colleagues needed their pay checks and decided to continue suffering in silence...
