"How can you succeed when some women are so hostile to one another in the workplace?" Though I've been fortunate to have not experienced this first hand, I've been asked this enough to know that it's happening. Here's my take: Collaboration is the new competitive edge. When I had to decline a speaking opportunity, I offered to help find a replacement. I sent them the names of some of my best colleagues. In return, the client was so happy to fill the spot, they offered me another opportunity. The truth is: Generosity breeds abundance.
