How Women Can Use Negotiation to Get What They Really Want
Author: Linda Babcock,Sara Laschever
Category: Business & Economics
In their groundbreaking book, Women Don’t Ask, Linda Babcock and Sara Laschever uncovered a startling fact: even women who negotiate brilliantly on behalf of others often falter when it comes to asking for themselves. Now they’ve developed the action plan that women all over the country requested—a guide to negotiation that starts before you get to the bargaining table. Ask for It explains why it’s essential to ask (men do it all the time) and teaches you how to ask effectively, in ways that feel comfortable to you as a woman. Whether you currently avoid negotiating like the plague or consider yourself hard-charging and fearless, Babcock and Laschever’s compelling stories of real women will help you recognize how much more you deserve—whether it’s a raise, that overdue promotion, an exciting new assignment, or even extra help around the house. Their four-phase program, backed by years of research, will show you how to identify what you’re really worth, maximize your bargaining power, develop the best strategy for your situation, and manage the reactions and emotions that may arise—on both sides. Guided step-by-step, you’ll learn how to draw on the special strengths you bring to the negotiating table to reach agreements that benefit everyone involved. This collaborative, problem-solving approach will propel you to new places both professionally and personally—and open doors you thought were closed. Because if you never hear no, you’re not asking enough. From the Hardcover edition.
Lady Elizabeth Hawthorne und Marcus Ashford, Earl of Westfield, verbindet eine leidenschaftliche, aber auch leidvolle Vergan genheit. Sie waren einst verlobt, bis Elizabeth Marcus der Untreue verdächtigte und ihn verließ. Nun, vier Jahre später, kreuzen sich die Wege der beiden erneut. Marcus, der Agent im Dienste der Krone ist, soll Lady Elizabeth beschützen, da ein Unbekannter sie bedroht. Beide fühlen sich erneut magisch voneinander angezogen. Aber können sie die alten Verletzungen vergessen?
Fearless Surrender Nothing incites Marcus more than the primal hunger roused by his former fiancée, Elizabeth. It's been years since she jilted him for another man, but that only means there's a lot to catch up on, a lot to make up for, and that he's going to enjoy every sweet moment. . . The same drive and passion that sent her into another man's arms is what brings Elizabeth back to Marcus. Her attraction to him is the one thing she fears, but she's run out of options. Resisting is impossible. But does she have the courage to surrender everything? Praise for Sylvia Day and her novels "Bared to You obliterates the competition. . .unique and unforgettable." -Joyfully Reviewed "The undisputed mistress of tender, erotic romance." --Teresa Medeiros "Plenty of sizzling passion and dangerous drama." --Booklist on Ask For It

Publisher: BASTEI LÜBBE

Um Hilfe zu bitten fällt uns oft schwer, weil wir Angst haben, schwach und bedürftig zu scheinen. Eine völlig falsche Sichtweise, meint Amanda Palmer. Die Musikerin ist eine wahre Expertin darin, sich helfen zu lassen, bat sie doch bei unzähligen Gelegenheiten um die Unterstützung ihrer Fans. Dabei hat sie erfahren, dass der ausgetauschte Gefallen stets für beide Seiten ein Gewinn ist. Wer um Hilfe bittet, zeigt sich zwar verletzlich, erhält aber auch die Chance, Vertrauen zu beweisen und Beziehungen aufzubauen. Amanda Palmer hat ein großes Buch über Menschlichkeit geschrieben; über Ängste und Schwächen und über die Kraft der Güte und des Vertrauens.
An agent of the Crown, Marcus Ashford, the Earl of Westfield, must protect his beautiful former fiance, Lady Hawthorne, who has in her possession a diary of secrets that many would kill to obtain, while igniting the flame of passion that still lingers between them. Reprint.

I Did Not Ask For This: A Candid Discussion on Sexual Assault studies sexual assault and how this sociological problem is continuing to plague every family in our society. Most people either knows some one who has been sexually assaulted or have been a victim- themselves. Sexual predators come from every walk of life and will assault anyone who appears to be fair game regardless of that person's : Age,Race ,Gender or socio-economic status. Dr. Gayle reviews this topic from a victim/victors' perspective using vital statistics and "real talk" with the express purpose of teaching the public about the physiological and psychological chains that sexual assault has on its constituents . It is also design to encourage dialogue about this topic so that communties can develop ways of not only protecting females but also their male conterparts. Limited discussion is given to the male victim of sexual assault. Historically,Critics do not want to address this population because of the implications that it has on the males' ability to protect themselves. However, because of the escalating numbers of sexual assaults in the male population-this group was addressed. Finally we address three cases of sexual assault outlined in the bible and ascertain what God says about it. We can no longer allow this societal ill to remain like the "Pink Elephant"in the living room that no one talks about.We must eliminate this problem!\
