How Do You Get to the Top?

Old Paradigm: Ladder

New Paradigm: Lattice

We’ve been taught the best way to have the career of your dreams is to rise up the ladder. But in our 24/7 work world, how do you do that and still have a life? Can pausing or downshifting actually power your career forward?

Come learn the hidden secrets of trailblazing women who worked, paused, and thrived.
