Publisher's Summary

Popular leadership blogger gives the low-down on standing up for yourself...
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 readers 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.

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 Campbell's Soup.
Offers a reliable and methodic approach to negotiating and navigating tough conversations.
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.

Straightforward Advice for Women Professionals

Excellent book on how to ask for what you want in a professional setting. The first few chapters help to set the stage on why women struggle to ask for what they want or deserve. The rest of the chapters focus on techniques and examples. I reread these chapters as I was preparing for job interviews and critical business negotiations.

I highly recommend this book to any female professional looking for guidance on this subject.

Learning from women executives, powerful messages.

This is a great book for women who are starting out in male dominated fields and looking to become executives. It details a lot of failures and lessons learned, as well as giving different options of what did and did not work in various scenarios. Unlike other similar titles, every executive has their own POV based in their industry and personal experience, sometimes contradicting each other. The stories are grouped in topics, so you can jump from one area to the other without losing pace. The narrator is pleasant to listen to and speaks clearly at an even pace.
