Take-Aways:

  • When disagreements happen there needs to be an opportunity and place to battle them out. Niki Russ Federman, Co-Owner, Russ & Daughters
  • Pick your battles – fighting for everything is not as powerful as fighting for what you really feel is important. Figure out what that is. Dr. Lois Frankel, author of “Nice Girls Don’t Get the Corner Office,” “Nice Girls Don’t Get Rich,” and “Nice Girls Just Don’t Get It”

Anne Papageorge, University of Pennsylvania: Planning; Design and Construction; Facilities Operations, Maintenance, Utilities; and Real Estate Operations and Development

  • Be able to separate: What you have to do, what you want to do and what others expect you to do. Dr. Stew Friedman, founding director Wharton’s Work/Life Integration Project
