HOW WOMEN RISE
Break the 12 Habits Holding You Back from Your Next Raise,
Promotion, or Job
Following the publication of Marshall Goldsmith’s What Got You Here Won’t Get You There, Sally Helgesen realized that although some challenges apply equally to both men and women, women face specific—and different—challenges as they seek to advance. Sally approached Marshall to collaborate on the book HOW WOMEN RISE, an invaluable handbook for women trying to take the next step in their careers. They realized that for women in particular, the very skills and habits that made them successful early on could actually be holding them back as they advance to the next stage of their working lives. These insights are important for women, and for organizations wanting to architect smoother paths to advancement for women.
Like the original What Got You Here, the concepts presented will help women identify specific behaviors that keep them from realizing their full potential, no matter what stage they are at in their career. It will also help them identify why what worked for them in the past will not necessarily get them where they want to go in the future -- and how to finally shed those behaviors so they can advance to the next level, whatever that may be.
Who should attend: This workshop should be attended by HR executives and staff concerned with the advancement of women in their organization.
