This new book uses relatable stories and practical tips to empower women to develop the one-size-fits-all business skill required for success…confidence.
Online PR News – 23-November-2020 – Denver, Colorado – Kingdom Publishing, LLC. today announced the release of Speak Up, Sister! The Professional Woman’s Guide to Confidence and Success. In this new book for women, McKinney brings her edgy humor, real life examples, and practical exercises to crush insecurities, quiet the voices of judgement, and empower women to confidently speak up.
Today, women in corporate America aren't just experiencing the "glass ceiling" with misrepresentation in c-level positions. What has become even more inhibiting, however, is what the Lean In Organization has named the "broken rung," resulting in more women in business getting stuck at entry level positions and fewer women emerging beyond manager-level. It is common for women to find themselves in a meeting with a brilliant solution to the problem at hand, but are afraid to say it. Confidence is the tool she needs to voice that brilliant solution and rise above the broken rung. McKinney teaches and coaches every woman to find her confidence and speak up!
This book covers the fundamentals of confidence, including the science behind it and exercises on how to build it in your self and others. She also addresses common workplace challenges and offers proven solutions to effectively navigate them. Throughout the book, she highlights the power of relatability and working together is always better than pulling someone else down.
McKinney shares her witty reply of having steel-toe stilettos, a 27-floor elevator ride from defeat to victory, and the power of Underoos make you feel like a superhero to demonstrate the power of confidence in the workplace.
