Sallie Krawcheck is known by many as 'the most powerful woman on Wall Street.' As the co-founder and CEO of Ellevest, a digital investment platform for women, Krawcheck puts her skills and experience to use, seeking to help women understand how they can advance in business and become as successful as their male counterparts — if not more. In this course, Krawcheck introduces us to the main points of her successful book of the same name, showing how women can use and develop natural traits to establish successful careers and reach senior positions. Though many associate femininity with passivity, traditional feminine qualities can be leveraged in one's quest for professional success and help women lead with force, empathy, and the much-needed ability to hear others out.

We're not naturally born knowing how to be leaders. Instead, leadership is a skill that is built as a result of thousands and thousands of micro lessons over the course of a career.
