PREORDER MY NEW BOOK

Based on my twenty years of work studying power, status, and perceptions, I know one thing is true: No fancy title, degree or achievement is going to get us the rewards we deserve if it doesn’t impact how others perceive us. So, I’m pulling back the curtain on decades of science to reveal what all successful women have in common — they have found their unique way to show up as a likeable badass. All we need to do is follow their lead.

“Likeable Badass: How Women Get The Success They Deserve” will be published by Penguin Random House on September 3, 2024 and is available for preorder now.

What Can We Do Together?

As an organizational psychologist and professor for the past 20 years, I elevate ambitious women by giving them cutting-edge, science-based strategies to be confident, savvy advocates for their own interests.

I deliver high-energy keynotes and workshops to give people the tools they need to negotiate, influence, and lead more effectively.

I’m what you’d get if your favorite teacher and favorite comedian had a very fashionable baby. Our time together will not be boring.

TESTIMONIALS

Alison delivered an amazing professional training and team-building experience. Her negotiation workshop was one of the best executive development programs I’ve ever observed. As impressed as I was by the depth of experience, research and analysis she brought to her presentation, I was even more impressed by the way she brought the engagement to life in the room with her brilliance and focus.

Alison Fragale’s work on collaboration and influence is some of the best I have encountered in my two-decade career in learning and development. What I saw and heard brought voice to many things I’ve done in my career but didn’t know how to convey to others.

Alex D'Eath
COO
WDHB, Inc.

I have worked with Alison over the last decade and seen her engage audiences around the world at levels from senior executives to flag officers to MBA students. Alison approaches topics of negotiation, power, influence and leadership with a deep knowledge of the most relevant and current research in the area while making it tangible, accessible and most importantly, actionable for her audience. Her energy and passion for delivering insights that can help executives grow sticks with you – I have talked to participants years later who were with Alison for only an hour who talk about how her session helped them in a recent negotiation.

Susan Cates
CEO
ACUE (Association of College & University Educators)

If you are looking for a speaker who is engaging, knowledgeable and personable, Alison Fragale should be on your list. She quickly establishes credibility with an audience and holds its attention with accessible stories and examples from research. We have engaged Alison for over six years and continue to be impressed by her ability to understand our business and culture, connect with our leaders and inspire personal and organizational change.
