    7 Essential Qualities of Women Who Lead

    Judy Hoberman, President of Walking on the Glass Floor and author of Selling In A Skirt, will be to engage with us and share her wisdom in the DFW*ATW August Monthly Meeting.

    When you think about leadership, what skills immediately come to mind? Perhaps strategy, negotiations, education, technical knowledge, communication, power and presence? While those are extremely important qualities to have, studies have shown that soft skills are even more important in leadership than the hard skills we have grown accustomed to. While hard skills will get you the job, it's the soft skills that will get you to the top.

    In the engaging and interactive session, Judy will speak about 7 essential leadership qualities and traits that are paramount to success. Be prepared to walk away with useful, proven tips and best practices.
