"By the end of this rancorous term, the women produced 75% of the major legislation that passed the Senate, showing how...the Senate can be much more functional -- when women reach a critical mass"

Jay Newton-Small in "Broad Influence" 

With more women running for office – and winning so far – this political season, listen to Time magazine contributor (and former long-time political reporter) Jay Newton-Small’s fascinating conversation with Green Connections Radio host Joan Michelson about how women in leadership, especially in the U.S. government, have succeeded. Their strategies and successes may surprise you, and you may want to follow their lead.

Small compiled them in her best-selling book “Broad Influence: How Women are Changing the Way America Works,” and shares highlights with us.

You’ll hear:

  • Leadership tips that apply no matter where you work and who you lead.
  • Strategies for advancing your career from how other women have succeeded.
  • Finding alternate paths to solutions (aka “work-arounds”) when conventional paths are blocked.
  • How women can support each other in a meeting with a subtle comment, or after a meeting with a valuable “heads-up.”
  • How women in Congress have brokered bipartisan political agreements that their male colleagues could not.
  • Why we need more women police officers too!

And career insights from her own path too!
