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.

Today we need a new type of leader. As we enter the fourth industrial revolution, we need leaders with the wisdom to address new ways of working, to make a positive change in the world. One of the key premises of Mindfulness-Based Leadership is that leadership is about being, not becoming. We make a bigger difference by looking within ourselves than by striving to become what we are not. While mindfulness has often been perceived as a solitary activity, this book reveals how it is applicable on a wider scale - in groups, businesses and the wider community. Mindfulness-Based Leadership shows us how to balance self and organisational goals, to erase the real and imagined internal conflicts between what we believe in and what we do in reality. Mindfulness expert Kathirasan K presents a unique 56-day course on Mindfulness-Based Leadership. Each day introduces a new facet of mindfulness - through guided introspection, acceptance and mindful practice - illuminating the ways in which we can unlock the leader within ourselves.
Global warming, overpopulation, the biodiversity crisis... the world we live in is in a state of emergency. This is not just an ecological problem; it is an economic problem as well. The state of the natural world impacts - and is impacted by - human society. Our actions have long-term consequences, so we must be wise in the choices we make, not least in the companies/practices we support through our investment decisions.

What can we as individual investors do to avoid wrecking the Earth while growing our wealth? How can we navigate the capital allocation space without compromising our ethical values? It can be done - some of the Big Boys have done it - and this invaluable new book shows us how. Delving into topics such as alternative energy sources, conservation and natural capital, The Ethical Investor's Handbook offers practical advice on how to build a sustainable green portfolio that reaps handsome returns. There are pitfalls and stranded assets to avoid, but also new opportunities if you know where to find them. Do-gooders, with the right understanding of the issues at hand, can make a good buck!
