experiences with others and revel in the shared

business is the story of empowerment ... of taking
charge ... and moving forward to reach their goals
and dreams. But you and I both know that the ceiling
hasn’t shattered yet. We’ve got a long way to go.

Track 2: How Others See You
Session 2A: How to Be Assertive Without Being

differences with coworkers (even though you may WANT
to do that sometimes!). But it IS an informative
session for businesswomen who want to learn
