The buzz: “The human spirit is like an elastic band. The more you stretch, the greater your capacity” (Bidemi Mark-Mordi). Career stretch opportunities–temporary assignments requiring expertise outside an employee’s regular job duties–are embraced by companies as well as their workers who are eager to showcase new skills and passions. What does this mean for you? Our panel will share insights on how to accept and negotiate stretch assignments on your own terms, and on a Be Leaderly report about how each gender decides their readiness to stretch. The experts speak. Selena Rezvani, Be Leaderly: “You will never climb Career Mountain and get to the top and shout, 'I made it!’” (Amy Poehler). Robert F. Solomon, Jr., Network of Executive Women (NEW): “The world is not changed by people who sort of care" (Sally Hogshead). Schuchi Sharma, SAP: “The greatest contribution of a leader is to make other leaders” (Simon Sinek). Join us for Career Stretch and Readiness: Gender Lens Differences?
