In this week's podcast episode, I had the pleasure of interviewing Michelle Redfern, a seasoned corporate leader and author, who shared her expertise on career advancement for women. Michelle discusses the importance of Business Intelligence (BQ), Emotional Intelligence (EQ), and Social Intelligence (SQ) in propelling your career forward. We discussed how women can enhance their BQ to stand out, the role of strategic mentorship, and the significance of intentional networking.

Michelle also addresses the systemic barriers and gender biases that hinder women's progress in the corporate world. She offers actionable strategies for overcoming these challenges, advocating for change, and aiming high in your career aspirations. This episode is packed with practical advice and inspiring stories that you won't want to miss.
