Manage meetings well and everyone is happy to attend

By | April 8th, 2018|W2W|

If you're a woman in business, you've probably attended a few meetings in your life. Somehow, many of us still don't love going to meetings. Priorities are misaligned. The topic of conversation gets off track or goes too long. Being able to manage meetings effectively is a skill we all need to learn. It's a [...]

Confidence is critical to success, so make it a priority this year

By | March 5th, 2018|W2W|

Authenticity is the key to building trust and being true to yourself

By | February 6th, 2018|W2W|

I've noticed a strong push in the past 10 years for organizations and people to prioritize authenticity.

When I was growing up, my dad talked a lot about price versus value. One of the [...]

I've been fortunate (and grateful) to work with a number of people who actively practice gratitude. Being around them has [...]

Network wisely, selectively and with the right focus

By | September 1st, 2017|W2W|

As a business network, we have a vested interest in helping people learn how to network effectively. After all, if our members don't get what they need, why would they stay? The WBN is a large network of over 200 women who all have different goals for their professional lives and reasons for joining. That's [...]

Leadership edge – find yours any place, any time, in any role

By | August 7th, 2017|W2W|

I can't think of another period in my lifetime that there's been so much attention given to leadership - both the good and bad traits that stand out in the actions taken by people who've been given a leadership role. Comparisons abound in the news on a daily basis and it's causing a lot of [...]
