The Psychology of Leadership, Risk Management, and Emotional Intelligence

  • How to push past a professional plateau (minute 19)

  • What holds entrepreneurs back (24m)

  • What I learned from interviewing women and how it can inform recruitment and retention practices (25m)

  • Five things women can do to succeed in male-dominated fields (starting at 30m)

  • Networks and networking (37m)

  • Is mentoring men vs women different? Is the "debate" about men vs women a zero-sum game? (starting 42m)
