The Power of Women : Harness Your Unique Strengths at Home, at Work and in Your Community
This new book from bestselling author Susan Nolen-Hoeksema helps women to discover, develop and harness their distinct psychological and social strengths so they can build their confidence and achieve their full potential in all aspects of their lives. The author believes that women are generally extremely hard on themselves: they concentrate on their flaws and shortcomings, trying all the time to fix problems that no one else can see. Her 25 years' research reveals that women have exceptional skills and, despite being ignored or dismissed over the millenia, have shown that they can be superb leaders, entrepreneurs and innovators. Women do much more right than they do wrong. Using the latest thinking in cognitive and behavioural therapy, motivating case histories and easy-to-follow exercises, Susan Nolen-Hoeksema introduces a new programme for step-by-step change. She helps women to understand what is holding them back and inspires them to transform their lives, their work and their relationships.
