No is a very simple word - two letters, one syllable. Yet many women have a hard time saying it without feeling anxious or guilty. In My Answer Is NO...If That's Okay with You, award-winning psychiatrist and author Dr. Nanette Gartrell takes a fresh look at why even the most powerful, accomplished, and successful women find it difficult to say no and offers a revolutionary approach to setting limits without jeopardising important relationships.
Dr Gartrell’s interviews women from a diverse group of talented women, including CEOs, celebrities, physicians, and public official reveal that women’s reluctance to say no comes from traits that we should embrace such as empathy, sensitivity, and thoughtfulness. She offers useful ways into turning that reluctant yes into a polite no.
