About the talk:

Women’s distinctive strengths and behaviors provide them with many advantages. Yet the very habits that help them early in their careers can hold them back as they seek to rise.

In this interactive virtual seminar, Sally draws on her work with legendary executive coach Marshall Goldsmith to help women identify and address the habits most likely to get in their way as they seek to move to a higher level.

Using vivid real-life examples that resonate and inspire, Sally helps participants:

* Identify how specific habits may hinder them as they move to a higher level

* Initiate simple behavioral changes that can smooth their path going forward

* Hold themselves accountable for changes that can benefit them and their organizations

* Become a more powerful resource for other women seeking to rise

Participants will come away from this program with:

* An enhanced understanding of their individual strengths

* Tips for identifying and addressing challenges going forward

* A proven means for enlisting support

* Tools for enhancing their visibility and connections
