Woman of Wisdom: Effective Strategies to Manage Up and Down with Jen Whelan

When you're a leader with people above and below you, managing both sides and not forgetting about yourself in the middle can sometimes feel challenging.

Oftentimes, when people "fail" they are only focusing on one direction.  During this talk Jen Whelan, SVP Marketing at Criteo will offer insights and tips to enhance the skills necessary to balance both directions and keep yourself healthy along the journey.

Women of Wisdom: Staying Cool When Dealing With Overly Emotional Colleagues

It’s impossible to leave your emotions at the workplace door, nor would you want to. Could you image functioning without passion, joy, or excitement? Probably not, however with all of those emotions, also come more challenging ones such as anger, frustration and anxiety. 

The office can get a little challenging when these latter emotions surface. Emotions are unpredictable and sometimes drive those we work with to express them in ways that are difficult to manage. 

During this talk Anne Kreamer, a past business executive at Nickeloden, journalist and author specializing in business, work/life balance, culture and women’s issues will tackle this topic and share insights and tools to help you best handle emotionally charged colleagues.
