Are you ready to move up in your career? Of course! But do you know how to get there—without being labeled pushy or mean, or worse?

Whether you’re aiming for a better salary, promotion, or deal of any kind, Your Own Terms merges time-honored tactics of the negotiation table with women’s people skills and collaborative strengths. Tips, strategies, exercises, examples, dialogues, and more mix with encouragement and inspiration to help you:

Navigate through double standards and avoid backlash • Create a strong presence that earns respect, yet puts others at ease • Figure out and leverage your natural style (avoider, accommodator, compromiser, competitor, or collaborator) • Achieve ambitious goals using “backwards mapping” • Counter overt and subtle offensive maneuvers that men frequently use • Handle difficult people with targeted power moves • Become a masterful persuader • Put the new science of gender intelligence to your advantage • Redefine the rules of negotiation and find win-win solutions that work for everyone.
