Erin Fischer, CEO and Owner, The Leadership and Training Studio

We did our research! We were on a mission to figure out the competencies that women need in order to be wildly successful and we found them – all 36 of them. During our time together, we will explore the top seven and we will have some fascinating conversations about how to use these to create a more purpose-driving life. Get ready for some big aha moments and some self-exploration.
