What challenges do women face as they strive to secure leadership positions within their organization? I recently had the opportunity to talk with Miriam Grobman about this topic.

She’s also the creator of the Master Influencer Boot Camp for Women. Miriam previously worked in strategic roles within Fortune 500 companies on 3 continents.

If you are looking to advance to leadership positions you will need to do a little preparation so that companies looking to hire women in leadership positions will know to consider you:
- Brand yourself for your future
- Build your network and secure a sponsor
- Overcome your fears
- Embrace continued learning and become more employable
- Be visible – let it be known you are interested
- Read my book: Accelerate Your Impact – A Playbook for Professional Women
Now is your time. The ground is fertile. Be confident and go after your perfect career.
