In these current volatile and uncertain times, there is no straight path to success at work and in life; there are always challenges. Yet we can learn and grow from our mistakes.

Are you ready to learn how to take on the toughest work challenges? Then don’t miss this opportunity to hear from director emerita at McKinsey & Company, Joanna Barsh who has over 30 years of global leadership experience and believes that “you don’t grow despite challenges but because of them.”

No one knows more about, or is more qualified to provide the advice we need to grow through the work challenges all aspiring leaders face than Joann Barsh. And she has written a book, "Grow Wherever You Work" to help us figure this out. In it, she share real-life stories from a very diverse group of over 200 high performing, high potential rising leaders at Fortune 1000 companies. The book offers advice and shares the tools, practices and actions professionals at any stage of their career can use to grow through challenges and drive toward purpose at work.

Robert I. Sutton, Professor of Management at Stanford Business School had this to say about Joanna’s book. “Joanna Barsh has written a remarkably engaging and wise book about how to deal with the most vexing workplace challenges. Grow Wherever You Work offers brilliant and field-tested advice so you can respond with grace and competence to ugly hurdles such as working with the office villain and surviving with stretches when everything seems to suck – and for rising to the occasion when it is time to take a big risk. This is the best book of its kind I can recall.”

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to learn from leadership expert Joanna Barsh, about how we can realize our full potential and dreams despite the challenges we face at work. The evening’s conversation will be moderated by Shirley Moulton, Founder of The Academi of Life.
