Inspiring Women in STEM Forum: Get Out of Your Own Way!

You know how to get things done. You set a goal, develop a plan, create your action steps, assign dates, and make it happen, right? Does a great plan guarantee you will achieve your goal?  In my experience, the answer is no.

Dynamic speaker Vicki Cotter led a discussion about (and had some fun with) filters, language, listening, storytelling, your brain,  and what you can start to do right now to achieve the results you want, consistently.
