BEFORE YOU WERE TOLD TO "LEAN IN," DR. LOIS FRANKEL TOLD YOU HOW TO GET THAT CORNER OFFICE.


The internationally recognized executive coach Lois P. Frankel reveals in her book, “Nice Girls Don’t Get the Corner Office” a distinctive set of behaviors - over 130 in all - that women learn in girlhood that ultimately sabotage them as adults. She teaches you how to eliminate these unconscious mistakes that could be holding you back and offers invaluable coaching tips that can easily be incorporated into your social and business skills. The results for hundreds of thousands of women have been career opportunities they never thought possible - at every stage of their career, from entry - level to the corner office! Stop making "nice girl" errors that can become career pitfalls, such as:

 

Avoiding office politics. If you don’t play the game, you can’t possibly win.

Asking permission. Children, not adults, ask for approval. Be direct and be confident.

Failure to negotiate. Don’t equate negotiation with confrontation


These are just a few set of behaviors Becky Dobbs will discuss from the book, “Nice Girls Don’t Get the Corner Office.” Following the book discussion, Great River Energy’s (GRE) Vice President and Chief Culture Officer, Kandace Olsen, will talk about the lessons she’s learned over her 40 year career and particularly over the last 20 years at GRE from Manager to Vice President in the “C” suite.
