Confident women have a no-nonsense attitude. They produce, and people rely on them. What else do they do to command respect? Read on:
They’re direct: If they ask for something, they get right to the point and don’t go around in circles. They’re respectful of other people’s time.
They’re good negotiators: They are clear about what they want and what they are willing to give up. If things don’t go their way, they don’t take it personally and they keep going.
They’re good listeners: They build relationships by asking questions and getting other people to share their insights and their stories.
They stick to their priorities: If an issue is important, they stand by it and don’t let anyone tell them otherwise.
