Please Read "What Got You Here Won't Get You There: How Successful People Become Even More Successful," by Marshall Goldsmith. 

America’s most sought-after executive coach shows how to climb the last few rungs of the ladder.

The corporate world is filled with executives, men and women who have worked hard for years to reach the upper levels of management. They’re intelligent, skilled, and even charismatic. But only a handful of them will ever reach the pinnacle -- and as executive coach Marshall Goldsmith shows in this book, subtle nuances make all the difference. These are small "transactional flaws" performed by one person against another (as simple as not saying thank you enough), which lead to negative perceptions that can hold any executive back. Using Goldsmith’s straightforward, jargon-free advice, it’s amazingly easy behavior to change.

Light appetizers will be provided. Note proceeds for the event will go to PACE GIRLS organization and donations are welcome even if you cannot attend.

"At PACE Center for Girls, we have developed a nationally recognized, research-based non-residential program model that features a balanced emphasis on academics and social services, with a focus on the future for middle and high-school aged girls and young women.The foundation of

PACE is our gender-responsive culture where we provide a safe environment that celebrates girls. PACE offers services that take into account how girls learn and develop and our supportive staff members respond to and celebrate each girl’s strengths and challenges.

The holistic, strength-based, and asset building PACE program model addresses the needs of girls and has garnered recognition nationally as one of the most effective programs in the country for keeping girls from entering the juvenile justice system."


Please join us for the discussion even if you are unable to read the book. Note we will also be hosting Q&A on our CFLSWE facebook Group so anyone can participate remotely.
