Navigating the Narrows - Understanding the Challenges and Contradictions of Leadership

Women looking to move into leadership positions in today's business world may benefit from taking more risks over the course of their career and by being more self-assertive. "According to the latest Women's Leadership Study from KPMG, seven in ten women (69%) are open to taking small risks to further their career, but far fewer (43%) are open to bigger risks associated with career advancement." Let's talk this out.
