Description
Acclaimed BBC anchor, Mishal Husain, inspires, champions, and encourages women to make their ambitions a reality by focusing on practical skills they can use throughout their careers, whether they are new graduates, working mothers, re-entering the workforce, or simply seeking a career change. When women are offered new opportunities, they often hesitate because of doubt-doubt that they are good enough or have the abilities to succeed. Mishal Husain has reached the pinnacle of her field, yet the British news presenter almost didn't take her dream job because of doubt, and it took three years before she felt truly comfortable in her position. While men focus on advancement, women feel pressured to prove themselves. "It is clear that we need some better ideas about how more women can advance to levels comparable with men," Husain writes. The Skills offers insight, practical knowledge, and encouragement to help women thrive. Husain begins with a frank overview of where women are socially and professional today, and identifies the factors that influence how others perceive us-and how we think about ourselves. Wise, down-to-earth, and filled with vital advice, The Skills guides women in honing the abilities they need to thrive in whatever field they choose. -- from Amazon.
