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?

Millennials Relationships Survey
Millennials Relationships Survey - and a chance to be awarded an Apple iPad Mini
WITI is participating in a study that author Andrew Sobel is leading on professional relationships, internal collaboration, and inter-generational challenges in the workplace, with an emphasis on the particular needs of Millennials (age 21-34). Millennials are now around 50% of the workforce, so this is an extremely important topic for everyone. Some of you know Andrew, who is a leading authority on client loyalty and professional-client relationships. He has conducted webinars for WITI in the past, and is the author of a number of books on business relationships, including the global bestsellers Clients for Life and Power Questions.
We'd like you to take a brief survey he has designed to create insights around these topics. The link is: www.surveymonkey.com/r/witirelationships
We are part of a much broader group of survey participants, and we will be able to compare our members' results to the overall survey responses. Later this year, Andrew has agreed to do a special webcast for WITI on the results of the survey and strategies to help build your key stakeholder relationships.
If you're not a Millennial, the survey is also designed for you. It's meant to capture the perspectives of all three generational cohorts in the workplace-Millennials, Xers, and Baby Boomers.
Andrew will award each of two survey participants a new Apple iPad Mini tablet, based on a random drawing after the survey is complete. The odds of winning are pretty good, so leave your email at the end of the survey if you want to be in the drawing.
Again, here is the survey link. Click on it, and it will take you to the online survey. It takes about 10-15 minutes to complete. Please complete the survey by February 16th 2016. Thank you!

Can You Spot the Email Fraudsters?
Remember the early days of the Internet when you could spot a scammer's email from a mile off? Their messages, littered with spelling mistakes, would offer you millions of dollars for helping them transfer money to some far-off place.
