Why do women sometimes hold themselves back? The answer is not a simple one. There are various ways (and reasons) that women sometimes limit their own career. In this presentation, we’ll discuss the types of roles women take on, office politics, and a common behavior called "office housework." We’ll explore the language women use that can drain power and how we communicate with our bosses, colleagues, and customers. We’ll talk about confidence, assertiveness, and fear and how that can impact behavior for some women. Finally, we’ll explore how women bargain and negotiate differently than men. Join the conversation with Dr. Shawn Andrews, HBA OC Chapter president and author of the best-selling book, The Power of Perception: Leadership, Emotional Intelligence, and the Gender Divide, to learn how to push past these limiting behaviors and allow yourself to shine.

Please note: this webinar will not be recorded.
