Pushback: How Smart Women Ask & Stand Up for What They Want

Join us for what promises to be a lively discussion.

In Pushback, top leadership consultant Selena Rezvani argues that self-advocacy is critical to success. Yet women initiate negotiations four times less often than men, resulting in getting less of what they want--promotion opportunities, plum assignments, and higher pay. This book shines a light on the real rules of holding your own and pushing back for what is rightfully yours. Drawing on interviews with high-level leaders, Rezvani offers listeners in the first half of their career the unedited truth about how women have asked their way to the top and triumphed--and how you can too. 


The book includes interviews with top business leaders such as Marie Chandoha, CEO of Charles Schwab Investment Management; Cindi Bigelow, President of Bigelow Tea Company; Fizzah Jafri, COO at Morgan Stanley; Rosemary Turner, President at UPS; and Irene Chang Britt, Chief Strategy Officer at Campbells Soup. Offers a reliable and methodic approach to negotiating and navigating tough conversation. Highlights compelling facts and research from the world of psychology and leadership. 


Insightful and accessible, Pushback is a timely resource for savvy women who want to leverage their skills, promote themselves effectively, and fast track their careers.
