Get what you want--in every aspect of your life--without having to compromise who you are.
"If women spent the latter half of the twentieth century getting to the table, the twenty-first century will be all about securing our place at it."--from the Foreword by Deborah Hayes
Securing a place at that table will require women not only to master all of the essential negotiating skills, but also to be comfortable with being negotiators. But how can you learn these invaluable lessons when most negotiating books are written for men, whose instincts are to confront and overpower, focusing almost exclusively on outcomes? Women approach negotiating very differently, and A Woman's Guide to Successful Negotiating is the practical, easy-to-use guide that will show you how to use your own style to get what you want--without giving up who you are.
Whether you're negotiating with your boss for that raise you deserve, with world leaders to establish peace, or simply with your husband over what car to buy, this book will teach you how to:
- Walk away--so you won't be walked all over
- Avoid the 10 most common mistakes women make when negotiating
- Build confidence and stay out of the empathy trap
- Stand your ground against even the most aggressive male negotiators
- And much more!
As you embrace and adopt the real-life strategies, tactics, and techniques offered here, you'll gain the competitive edge you need to negotiate in every aspect of your life--so you can get what you want while still honoring your spirit.
