When you get a chance to interview a woman who has reached the top levels of the C-Suite in the tech world you grab it. I know I wasn’t going to finally pass up the opportunity to interview someone who set a goal and achieved it 1000-fold and then went back to heading up the consulting firm she founded with her husband. Mush wisdom to be learned.
Janet Schijns and I discuss the myth of the Glass Ceiling, how you can achieve the highest levels of success in any field, what stops people from getting where they want to go and how she has created high-performing teams from non-performing ones.
Want to know what Janet does each year to build her success network and how you can too? How about how she deals with people asking her questions that are only asked of women?
This is a not to be missed episode and Janet shares what she is doing with her latest venture to help women reach the top of the C-suite.
