Publisher's Summary

Build confidence and assertiveness in your professional and social life starting today!

Are you tired of riding an emotional rollercoaster, ping-ponging between days when you feel good about your body image, your social life, and your career prospects, and days where it all slips away?

Do you struggle during social situations to find the words to express yourself without getting aggressive or apologetic?

Do you watch the men at your workplace get promoted, get better assignments, and receive pay increases, even though you know that your skills and performance are just as good, if not better?

You’re in good company. American Psychological Association research indicates that the self-esteem gender gap is actually larger in Western countries than it is in other parts of the world.

More worrying still, while our social and professional lives are more and more defined by digital media, according to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, the digital world is still largely a male-space.

It’s not rocket science. You don’t need to buy into the self-help industry that siphons your time, money, and energy on expensive and often condescending life coaches and therapy sessions.

All you need are straightforward, personalizable exercises that will help you to build up your self-esteem, confidence, boundary-setting, and communication skills, a little bit every day.

In Self-Esteem for Women, here is just a fraction of what you will discover:

  • 4 self-diagnostic tools to help you understand your personal struggles with self-esteem, assertiveness, body image, and emotional intelligence 
  • The “Cleopatra Approach” to starting and maintaining interesting conversation at social events 
  • How to create healthy boundaries and say “no” without feeling guilty 
  • The warning signs indicating that you need to set boundaries with friends, family, colleagues, or loved ones now in order to survive the relationship 
  • Your “Assertive Bill of Rights” and how to defend it with 5 techniques you can start using today 
  • The 3 disagreement strategies that Hillary Clinton uses to win debates 
  • Simple rituals for building self-esteem and confidence in under 20 minutes a day 
  • How to dramatically increase positive body-image and decrease dependence on social media by taking a selfie 
  • The 4 myths of assertiveness that keep you from standing up for yourself in the workplace and getting a pay raise 
  • The “Let It Rain” method for effectively managing your triggers before you lose control in public or in the workplace 
  • The telltale give-away: how to know when you’re losing someone’s interest during a conversation 
  • The innovative strategy to build emotional intelligence that is statistically proven to make you more hireable
  • And much more.

Self esteem for women

Surprised to see a self esteem guide aimed at women - at first I thought this was a little sexist but upon listening I can really see why it is so important books like this exist.

This is not just a self esteem guide. It is an allrounder confidence guide that all women would really find useful and helpful in life. In my humble opinion anyway.

Worth it

I would recommend this book (and I have) time and time again. Why? Because it, quite literally, changed my life and gave me the confidence, self-esteem, assertiveness and charisma I had always lacked.

Be a more confident women

Just finished the book so far too early to say if all the methods work but I will say I found this book very refreshing. It was not just the same old material repeated as in other books. It was something different and actually very interesting.

Fabulous book!

written beautifully.

I only found the narrators voice a little fake and cheesy, that's all.

Self Esteem guide for women

Loved how packed full of information this book was. I would recommend having a notepad and pen to jot some stuff down - the information is very easy to understand but its also packed and nonstop!

So needed

I didn't know just how much I needed this book until I got it. Maybe that doesn't make too much sense but lets just say this book made me open my eyes, realise new things and rebuild my life. Thank you.

Full of information.

A lot of books these days seem to have 5 good points and then a few hours of nonsense wrapped around it. I can honestly say this book was 100% great information, motivation and advice. A lot of women seem to suffer from self-esteem issues (for a while I thought it was just me) but help is out there and, for me personally, this is the best book / thing / resource I have discovered to help me.

Awesome

Without a seconds doubt this is the book of the year for me. I will be encouraging all my female friends to read or listen to it. I have always been shy and suffered from low confidence and an inability to assert myself - these are all attributes I can feel changing day by day since getting this book.

Now I understand

I have read about this book a lot lately and heard it mentioned on two different podcasts so I had to give it a try...and I am so grateful I did!

I approached it a little dubious having tried similar books, but this one was very different. It was fresh, modern, direct, unique, original and easy to understand.

Trust me when I say this is the book if, like me, you have any issues with confidence, assertiveness, self esteem, knowing what to say, shyness etc etc

Great for confidence

As someone who has had issues with confidence and self-esteem almost all my life, this book was very useful and effective at reframing my mind, reframing my thoughts and ultimately giving me increased happiness. I would say it is always going to be a "work in progress", but really I feel a lot better thanks to the methods I have learnt.

Disappointed considering the high reviews

I only found a couple of chapters helpful, otherwise, very basic concepts - unless you've lived under a rock your entire existence... I was disappointed considering the top reviews. Definitely not on my top list of recommendations.
