I can help you be more successful using what I learned from almost 10 years of training and coaching high potential women from Fortune 1000 companies to be more successful through a company called Women Unlimited. I'm a certified Business Coach and corporate leadership trainer. I'm also the author of two books for women in business. The first book, "Why Can't You Communicate Like Me? How Smart Women Get Results at Work" gives practical tips to help women understand how they can get heard at work by making small adjustments in the way they talk. The second book, "Raise Rules for Women: How To Make More Money At Work" gives specific actions you can take to work with your boss to get salary increases you want and deserve. It also explains unconscious ways that you might be holding yourself back from making more money. Recognizing and understanding those issues, can help you make changes that can lead to salary increases.
