Women: Get People to Say “Yes” to You More Often!

Yes, I am primarily a motivational speaker now, but I have worked with women attorneys for years, helping them communicate more effectively and persuasively in the high stakes, high stress environment of the courtroom.  And I’m here to say that what Lauren Carlson writes in her blog post about how women sabotage their own sales success is absolutely true.  WAIT! you say!  Attorneys aren’t in sales!  Oh no?  Aren’t they trying to sell a judge or the jurors on their point of view?  And don’t all of us try to sell SOMEone on SOME idea every day?  Read this and make CERTAIN you take the advice.

  1. Linda, just like you, I am passionate about getting others to claim their greatness. Yes, it takes finesse to be able to let others know your worth without coming across as pushy or bragging, but it’s worth learning. Women are often so concerned about balancing their relationships (not appearing above another), they don’t end up being able to balance their checking account because they hesitated asking for the order. That’s why bloggers, motivational speakers and authors need to consistently encourage them to take risks. Great post!

  2. Hey Linda, thanks for bringing this to the fore. As I reflected upon Lauren’s blog and your comments… I decided that it was too great an opportunity to pass up on… so I’m going to translate the timeless and universally applicable essence of what you’re both sharing, into a Dad Talk with my 8 year old daughter and my 5 year old son. I think it’s going to be a fun and relevant conversation. Thanks!

  3. Thank you for the empowering message in Lauren’s blog!  When is it, exactly, that we get that polite, submissive message??  I guess it happens gradually over time so it really sinks in deeply.  Love the power of these blog posts to constantly challenge our viewpoints!!  Thank you Linda for that great link!
