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.
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.

Really enjoyed this book! Lots of practical tips and I enjoyed the negotiation model/steps outlined by the author. The real world examples served as excellent illustrations. My only critique is that I would have liked to hear more first hand examples/stories from areas outside of for-profit business--for example, women leaders in the government or non-profit. This would have been more relevant for someone like me who works in higher education. Even so, the examples transcend industries and I could find ways to apply them to my own career trajectory. Excellent book, I will recommend to others!
