Quote Of The Week: Training Women For The C-Suite

Joyce Elam, interviewed by Florida Trend

“Women often get too focused on just doing the job and think they need to spend all of their time working. They don’t understand how important it is to build relationships with others who are going to help them do their jobs. We tell women, ‘don’t eat lunch at your desk every day.’ You have to have a plan for going out and forming relationships. It will pay off for you in ways you can’t even envision right now.”

Joyce Elam, former dean of the college of business at Florida International University,  interviewed by Amy Martinez for Florida Trend, September 28, 2017. Joyce discussed the confidence gap between men and women — and how women are less likely to apply for jobs they’re not 100% qualified for.
