You Negotiate Like A Girl
Reflections on A Career in the National Football LeagueBook - 2016
"The Princess of Darkness. Former NFL and Oakland Raiders executive Amy Trask has held many titles during her career--including chief executive, analyst, and author--but this nickname is what she is first and foremost known by to Raiders fans. Trask joined the Raiders as an intern during law school after the team moved from Oakland to Los Angeles--the position the result of a cold call she made to the team. From there, she worked her way up through the ranks of the organization, to the post she would eventually hold as chief executive. Along the way, Trask worked extremely closely with the late Al Davis, a man who treated her and others on his team without regard to gender, race, and age. Trask may have been the highest-ranking female executive in the NFL during her tenure with the Raiders, but in You Negotiate Like a Girl: Reflections on a Career in the National Football League, she shares how she found success by operating without regard to gender. Replete with insider tales about being on the Raiders' sideline and press box, in NFL owner's meetings--and yes, about Davis himself--Trask's book is a must-read not only for football fans, but anyone who wants to succeed in business"-- Provided by publisher.
