The Power of Women
Harness your Unique Strengths at Home, at Work, and in your CommunityBook - 2010
Women are extraordinarily hard on themselves. They scrutinize their flaws; they get preoccupied with ways they do not measure up, twisting themselves into knots to fix problems no one else can see. This book shows women how to break this cycle, by discovering and utilizing their unique psychological strengths. Psychologist Nolen-Hoeksema identifies the skill sets that women, based on their biology and social roles, bring to challenges. She then provides hands-on assessments for pinpointing strengths with the most relevance to a problem, exercises for building strengths, and inspiring examples of women's inventiveness, resilience, and sheer determination. --From publisher description.
