This is an encore episode of The Dots with guest Linda Smith in honor of the publication of her new book, “Smashing Glass & Kicking Ass: Lessons from The Meanest Woman Alive.”

After succeeding for decades in a cutthroat, male-dominated profession specifically by using her skills as a woman to become a leader of men, Linda Smith is on a crusade to teach all women how to harness their unique feminine abilities as women to succeed, not by becoming a mini-man, or beating men at their own game, but by using their unique feminine superpowers—what she calls our Kick Assets—to give women a remarkable advantage when it comes to the modern workplace.

After mentoring women for decades, Linda has taken on a broader mission to empower ambitious women in all fields to use their talent, smarts, and femininity to reach their own pinnacles of success. Whether the challenge is defeating gender stereotypes, conquering self-sabotaging behaviors, handling difficult men, or attaining leadership positions, Linda draws on her own experiences and those of other highly successful women to show women how to come out on top by embodying the best traits of women.
