- Create a board of women leaders that you admire and why. (I keep mine in a onenote notebook but you could do this on pinterest easily)
- Negotiating/Crucial Conversations
- I found (And still find) that the most challenging thing for me was having conversations that dealt with money or differences/changes in direction of the team. My desire to be kind sometimes made me speak in fuzzy, indirect ways. The more clear and direct that I can be in those situations, tends to make the conversation easier and better.
- I have not taken any courses on this beyond sections in classes.
- I found the book, Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes Are High Books, a good resource.
- Join a Women’s Leadership group and find a mentor.
- Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead by Nell Scovell and Sheryl Sandberg

- Very Easy read, beginner book
- I had my team read this and a few others. I think still applicable today.
