The executive leadership workshops at the Women of Power Summit are among the more popular seminars. If you take a look at this yearâ€™s photo galleries, itâ€™s no different.
Both seasoned executives and workforce newbies flocked to Thursday morningâ€™s panel, â€śThe Anti-Social Executive,â€ť which discussed ways women of power can progress in their careers. Moderated by Marsha Haygood, founder of StepWise Associates, LLC, the panel included Executive Director of Morgan Stanley Brooke Reid, Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer of Nationwide Mutual Insurance Gale V. King, and President of Aetna Student Health Chekesha Kidd. Kidd, 35, offers entry-to-experienced workers a few pointers on effective communication.
â€śAs Black executives, we often think that if we work hard and we do our job well thatâ€™s all we need to do. But, unfortunately, thatâ€™s not the case,â€ť the young exec said to BlackEnterprise.com.Â â€śItâ€™s all about managing those relationships, understanding peopleâ€™s motivations and being able to work on your goals and your career path to fit with how youâ€™re developing relationships going forward throughout your career.
Watch below as BlackEnterprise.com host Tai Beauchamp speaks with the Rising Stars 40 & Under cover subject about the importance of socializing effectively in the workplace.
