Do you sometimes feel like you are not being listened to or taken seriously? Or, that you don’t have the influence you need to make an impact at work?

This is common early in our career, but truth be told, this impacts women up and down the leadership ladder. And even to women who have been leaders in their company for decades.

In this episode I have an expert who is here to talk about how you can gain more influence so you can make a big impact at work.
