How Women Decide


"One could imagine it becoming required reading on Wall Street."--New York Times Book Review So, you've earned a seat at the table. What happens next? We all face hard decisions every day and the choices we make, and how others perceive them, can be life-changing. There are countless books on how to make those tough calls, but How Women Decide is the first to examine a much overlooked truth: men and women approach decisions differently, and often in surprising ways. Stress? It makes women more focused. Confidence? Caution can lead to stronger decisions. And despite popular misconceptions, women are just as decisive as men--though they may pay for it. Pulling from the latest science on decision-making, as well as lively stories of real women and their experiences, cognitive scientist Therese Huston teaches us how we can best shape our habits, perceptions, and strategies, not just to make the most of our own opportunities, but to reshape the culture and bring out the best decisions--regardless of who's making them. "I thought I had read everything I needed to read on gender differences, but, as a CEO, this book showed me a new and critically important area in which we need to be very aware of our biases and take the steps Huston recommends to address them."--Anne-Marie Slaughter, author of Unfinished Business: Women Men Work Family and president and CEO of New America.

Let’s Talk


Critical feedback, delivered frequently and expertly, can be a game changer - it can turn average performers into the hardest workers and stars into superstars. But fear of hurt feelings and awkward conversations often lead managers to hold back from offering crucial insights. According to recent studies, 44% of managers dread giving feedback, while 65% of employees wish their managers gave more. In Let's Talk, Dr Therese Huston shows how to deliver feedback effectively and with confidence. Starting with the best ways to approach the evaluation process, Huston explains the importance of siding with the other person, stating your good intentions and working out what kind of critique your employees want most - do they want to be appreciated, coached or evaluated? Huston then delves into the six practical tools you need to deliver impactful feedback, including how to take steps to ensure unconscious bias doesn't leak into your appraisal. Above all, Dr Huston offers a step-by-step plan to prove that productive, collaborative assessments are straightforward and not, as they sometimes seem, a Jedi mind trick. This handbook offers the tools to help anyone, from executives to teachers to coaches, to improve performance, trust and morale and make a once-dreaded task feel natural.
