Date & Time: September 9, 2015, at 6h30pm-7h30pm (EDT)

If you are like me, wondering how Sarah Jessica Parker really does it in the movie,“I Don’t Know How She Does It”, then  the upcoming Take The Lead’s Virtual Happy Hour series is where you can expect to get some practical answers. For women today, when they are juggling between managing the demands of work and the demands of family and motherhood, the real challenge is, really, to keep it all together without a total burn out. I Know How She Does It, Do You?, an hour-long, free online talk is about effective time management. Laura Vanderkam, celebrated author of several books tackling time management and productivity and Gloria Feldt, renowned author and speaker,  will discuss their strategies to manage time efficiently not only to succeed at the business spheres, but also, to lead a happy, balanced family life.

Break Through: Cracking the glass ceiling 

New York City, USA Register & ticket

Date & Time: September 10, 2015, at 6h30pm- 9pm (EDT)

Be it a snub by a well-deserved promotion or an inferior salary compared to your male counterparts, we have all experienced bias at some point in our career; the hard, unbreakable “glass ceiling”. Even Hilary Clinton seems to be of no exception to this and as she says in The Guardian, “Any woman who runs for the top job faces serious hurdles, says the forthright”. There you go! In this event, Allison Tafel teaches women how to negotiate their salaries before taking on a job or negotiate for a higher and better salary in their current job. The 2,5 hours workshop will teach women to clarify, focus and market their unique skills to help them justify their request for a higher payment while also helping them advance in their careers.

Building nourishing alliances with women

New York City, USA Register & ticket

Date & Time: September 20, 2015, at 12pm- 1h30pm (EDT)

This unique event is for the soul. Nothing can compare to friendship women have with each other. Such as nourishment is imperative to our body, a group of awesome girlfriends is similarly important to our soul. Female to female support lifts our spirit when we are feeling low and helps us go through our day to day struggles. This meetup event is to serve as a community for women to foster supportive interpersonal relationships with each other and to teach women to help one other to grow and empower, instead of pulling down. Building nourishing alliances with women gives a valuable lesson we need to learn and repeat each and every day.

Don’t shy away from asking for some guidance. We all need that.

This event, organised by Be Social Change, certainly resonates with what we, at MissCareer/Less advocate. Just read our article on The most essential steps to success to see what we mean. During this exciting workshop, Mark Monchek and Jaki Bradley will help you to become aware of your “success DNA”. Sounds too absurd? It is not.

In this class, you will be able to use different exercises to identify when and how you succeeded (or failed) in the past, become aware of these moments and its patterns so that you can use them for building your future success.

Fuckup Nights NYC

New York City, USARegister & ticket

Date & Time: October 5, 2015,at 6pm-8pm (EDT)

There is enough buzz about this event and we have visited and covered FuckUpNight Berlin Vol. IV. Why Fuckup Nights are so successful? Because they are about failures. This global movement embraces the hits and misses, and the mistakes made when creating new things in the field of arts and sciences and business. The event is selling out in a few hours, and frankly, there are no tickets anymore for this NYC edition either. But there is a good news for you! As we get closer to the event, the team will give out an extra 15-20 tickets, so go and register and increase your chance to be part of something hip. And if you miss this event, don’t worry, there is always next Fuckup Night nearby.
