As a young professional women, I am particularly looking forward to this webinar with Valerie Alexander! Too often women feel the need to act more like men to succeed in the workplace. What is the best method for women to advance in a male dominated environment? Valerie will delve into the evolution of the “gendered” brain and the corporate structure, showcasing and dissecting areas where women’s natural tendencies prevent us from succeeding in male-driven workplaces.
Key takeaways include:
-An understanding of the evolutionary underpinnings of human behavior, and how to overcome their natural tendencies in order to be more highly rewarded in the workplace.
-The ability to develop a framework that will enable you to think strategically about decision-making, communication and leadership, regardless of their job titles.
-Practical, actionable steps they can implement immediately to be more successful at every level, in any environment.
This is a “can’t miss” opportunity for young professionals to learn and hone their communication skills.
