Real Women Real Questions Q2

I love this next question from a WID Leadership Summit* attendee, who wants to know "How to better message and "sell" ideas and solutions to my leadership (as a worker-bee)."

Finding Flow (Or Getting It Back)

Happiness at Work: Achievable? Yes

Fulltime employees may spend a minimum of 2,000 hours in the workplace annually.

Mistakes, I’ve Made A Few

I love the wisdom of Henry Ford: Failure is only the opportunity to intelligently begin again. Emphasizing the word “intelligently” provides important insight to the process of evaluating and learning from our mistakes.

Yes. I Am Asking For It

Let’s talk great feedback. What exactly is “great” feedback? We know it when we hear it, right? Unfortunately, we don’t often get helpful, timely feedback—let alone great feedback.
