Overview

Phyllis Mindell, an acclaimed expert on professional communications, shows women how to transform themselves by transforming their language; shed weak words, phrases, and gestures; empower themselves to win attention and respect; and get their ideas across with confidence and power.

Perhaps the best teacher of how the power of language can transform is an unexpected one: Charlotte the spider of E.B. White's, Charlotte's Web. Mindell demonstrates how Charlotte communicated messages that gained national attention and saved a friend's life. As a model, she combines female strengths of wisdom and compassion with the determination and power to make a difference.

As part of Prentice Hall Press's highly successful How to Say It tm series, How to Say It tm for Women is packed with practical tips, techniques, and examples that arm women to grapple with every communication issue, from choosing the right word or sentence to speaking, reading, writing, leading, dressing, and interviewing effectively. Readers will learn how to: shun words that weaken messages and make women invisible; sail through interviews; assess and develop leadership skills; say NO, kindly but firmly; respond appropriately to slurs, insults, and harassment; say the one winning word that gets people to follow directions.

True stories about women in every field, along with quotes from Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Carla Hills, Amelia Earhart, Elizabeth Dole and others, enable women to tap the power of words to persuade, motivate, establish authority, and make a difference-- without sacrificing their integrity, their compassion, or their femininity.

    So Good I Ordered a Second Copy

    This book taught me valuable skills that college never did. I told my supervisor about the book, and she asked to borrow it. Since my copy has notes and highlights, I am ordering a second copy for her. Take it chapter by chapter, do the exercises, and you will definitely see improvements at work and at home.

    The subtle links between language, gender and power

    Communication and gender gaps plague the workplace. Groups at corporate meetings and presentations often ignore females' voices or relegate them to the background. Fortunately, Dr. Phyllis Mindell diagnoses the language problem that blocks women in business and provides grammatical cures for lackluster skills. Her book offers excellent examples, exercises and 'action plans' to guide women (and, to a large extent, men, too) through the maze of language and politics. The text's only flaw is a small dose of repetition. Otherwise, getAbstract considers this book essential reading for women in the executive suite and those trapped below the glass ceiling.
