Thought Leader Spotlight: Raymond J. McGuire
By The Azara Group

Becoming an investment banker wasn't my long-standing aspiration. In fact, I didn't know much about life on Wall Street. I was raised by a single mother in Dayton, Ohio, and was fortunate to attend The Hotchkiss School in Connecticut on scholarship. I thought I wanted to be a lawyer, like Perry Mason.

Power Trip: Tools for Maximizing Your Personal Power At Work (tm)
Presenter: Dr. Miriam Reiss
Tuesday, March 8, 2016
12-1PM PT (3-4PM ET)

Men aren't the only ones with power tools. Women have power tools too but are sometimes unaware of them and how to use them effectively. Women with introverted personality styles are more likely to underuse their power tools, resulting in getting overlooked at work and missing key opportunities. So, how can you bring out your power tools and use them to your professional advantage?

Why Women Need to Lead
Presenter: Will Marré

In case you missed it, watch last weeks webinar, "Why Women Need to Lead" with former President of the Covey Leadership Center, Will Marré!

Here's what people said:

"This was the best webinar I have attended from your organization since I joined. Thank you for the interesting, insightful, and immensely useful information."

"Will Marre was one of the best speakers I've heard, not only for a WITI Webinar but of other webinars I attend. He was both entertaining and engaging at presenting this topic. And I was so pleased that he presented actual actionable steps that I can take, and not merely communicated the data about women, leadership, and the workplace. It was fantastic, one of the best webinar hours I've spent in a long time."

"Amazing webinar, so glad my we were able to attend as a team! Way to go WITI!!!"

"Compelling and thought provoking. Thanks WITI!"

Five Inventions That Made the Modern Car

Today's cars do everything from heating your seat to driving themselves. It's easy to forget that automobiles started out as rickety, steam-powered carriages. How did we get to climate-controlled, computer-controlled, airbag-equipped modern vehicles? We have engineers, scientists, designers and more to thank for that. In honor of National Inventors' Day on February 11, we look at five American inventions that helped make the car what it is today.
