Forbest just published an article, "Flirting your way to the corner office." The article starts...

Her 4-inch black suede heels had obviously impressed the sender, a male senior partner. "He had exceptional taste," she recalls with a chuckle. "I thought to myself: I'll file that away."
The partner was a decision-maker in the company and a good person to have on her side. From that day on, whenever she had a presentation and knew he'd be in the room, she paid special attention to her footwear — never flats, always stilettos that added another four inches to her already-striking height of 5'8". "Flirting? I call it efficiency," she says.
The rest of the article presents some differing views and adivce to answer the question, "How, then, does one effectively — and platonically — flirt?"
