How Female Leaders Can Take Charge of Their Own Careers: 5 Ahas from Melissa Lamson


This week’s five Ahas are from the AhaBook™, #WomenAdvance.

Women are good at building relationships and leading with compassion; men are more focused in their communication style and can let criticism roll off them. These aren’t just stereotypes, but qualities that companies can profit from to create innovation and meet the demands of today’s diverse marketplace.

In this social media enabled eBook, Melissa provided insights, tips, and tools to support women in their career growth and leadership goals. By being aware of external barriers, removing internal barriers, and learning how to handle complex situations with confidence, women will have more opportunity to rise to the top of any organization they choose.fdghdhreyh (21)
