Cattiness

Most of us feel empowered and thankful to have women by our sides, women to support us, lead us, and on our teams. Depending on the group, this can create a dynamic force, or, depending on what is going on, can be a breeding ground for cattiness. Do you find yourself being catty with your colleagues? Does it impede the goals of the group? How do you manage it, and how can you come together to resolve it ... whether it's you or another?

Client Entertainment

There’s nothing to stop women from playing golf, but many don’t. Salesmen and c-suite have enjoyed using golf and sporting events as a client relationship-building tool for years.

How does golf/sports affect your sales and relationships vs. our male counterparts? What engagement activities do you with clients?

Discrimination (s) That Saleswomen Face

Our Business

We'll be proudly showing up as our true selves and having a frank conversation about how our body images impact our life and career behaviors and what we can do to help all women love themselves.

Taking a Seat at the Table

As Women we are sometimes challenged by our male counterparts to be recognized for a role. This discussion will be focused on how we overcome this obstacle and how do we take our seat at the table.

The Power of Vulnerability

Vulnerability can be seen as a weakness .. but what if you can use it to your advantage? Expressing vulnerability in the right way can be a powerful tool in your organization or with customers. Author Brene Brown says, “when you shut down vulnerability, you shut down opportunity.” In what ways can we show up as vulnerable?

Women and Competition

Why do women feel the need to compete with one another? Why is normal, healthy conflict between women often seen as a catfight? And what steps can we take to eliminate or resolve these feelings/situations? 

Your Career is a Jungle Gym, Not a Ladder

Stats have shown that people change careers roughly 5-7 times in  their lifetime. Gone are the days where people spend 40 years of their  career with one company. In an age where networking and building  personal relationships is the norm, many will find that their career  does not need to be a linear path. It’s more about looking  for opportunities that allow you to grow, impact and have a mission.  “Move sideways, move down, move on, move of. Build your skills, not your  resume.” -Sheryl Sandberg
