Any woman who picks up this book will feel inspired, upon reaching its end, to courageously speak her mind."-Publisher's Weekly"Difficult Conversations Just for Women: Kill the Anxiety. Get What You Want carries a message that every woman needs to know, especially in this day and age; an expert guide on handling difficult conversations. The title of this book may lure readers into checking it out, but they won't be disappointed. What is most interesting about this book is that it offers just what readers need to know. . . No fluff, no babbling."-Readers' Favorite Every woman intuitively knows that the strategies recommended for men won't work for women. Men will be called leaders and women who do the same things will be called "bossy" (or worse). If she says "I feel" she may be considered hormonal. That's why other conflict-management books shortchange women in two crucial ways:1) They fail to acknowledge and address the challenges that women face, but men don't. (And I'm not talking about having to turn a banana sideways when eating it in public.)2) They neglect to explain that many of the strategies they recommend-when followed by a woman-will carry backlash. When it comes to difficult conversations, women struggle to find the right balance between being seen as too passive ("a doormat") or too aggressive ("a bitch.")Those and many more are the reasons why women avoid confrontation at all costs, make fewer requests for themselves than men, and end up not getting what they want or deserve. This book is based on scientific research, and it has been written just for women. Presented in a lively and entertaining style, DIFFICULT CONVERSATIONS JUST FOR WOMEN gives women specific techniques and wording to feel confident before, during, and after a difficult conversation, and to tackle confrontations effectively.
