Update: "Horrible Bosses" Can Learn From Patricia Forrester's "Nice Girls on Top"

Compassion Is a Must-Have Leadership Skill for the Workplace

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 22, 2011) - Jennifer Aniston is one of the unbearable leaders in the upcoming film Horrible Bosses who could learn from Patricia Forrester, author of Nice Girls on Top: Compassionate and Highly Effective Leadership for Women, ranked #1 on Amazon in February 2011 in the category of Women in Business-Management and Leadership.

Different from Horrible Bosses, author Patricia Forrester provides real-life examples of women who have achieved great success by being nice without being a pushover.

Forrester, 51, a resident of Los Angeles, shares five case studies of successful businesswomen who use integrity and kindness to lead their teams to success each day.

Says Herbie Hancock, award-winning musician and composer, "It is up to the leader to set the tone. A workplace where people are inspired, mentored and treated with kindness will always succeed. Patricia Forrester's book, Nice Girls on Top, demonstrates that beautifully."

A former TV show writer for the teen series Boy Meets World, Forrester's aim for Nice Girls on Top is to inspire leaders to choose compassion over fear as a way to lead and share that women do not have to act horrible to "get ahead."
