The 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 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.

  • 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.
