Is your leadership style attracting, engaging, and retaining the current & future women leaders you want and need in your company?

In order for women to lead and succeed, now and into the future — especially in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) — you must integrate many of the specific leadership style elements that helped our special guest Karmyn Norwood become a VP of a multi-Billion dollar company, in her early 40’s.

In part 2 Karmyn talks about how to build a collaborative environment where relationships are built and people feel comfortable expressing themselves, and how this will help you grow your career.

This interview and part I is one of the most comprehensive, step by step strategies on how to advance your career that I have ever published.
