How Women Rise: Breaking Habits that Hold You Back

Author Sally Helgesen (How Women Rise, written with executive coach Marshall Goldsmith) explores the 12 habits most likely to undermine women as they rise in their organizations. Each habit is tied to a strength — and most serve women well early in their careers. But these same behaviors can undermine women as they assume greater responsibility and move to higher levels. In this session, you’ll identify the specific habits holding you back, learn how these habits can hinder you as you rise and develop simple behavioral tweaks to become a better leader, hold yourself accountable and help other women rise.
