“As women, we’re constantly told to speak up, lean in, and be a badass . . . We absolutely should. We must! But we have to execute these things in the right way.”
In a fast-paced world where opportunities appear—and shift—at a moment’s notice, how you communicate can, quite simply, make or break your career. Your work environment today includes a diverse array of people and personalities. The ability to interact with all of them, think on your feet, and grab a good opportunity when it’s facing you is the special sauce that will help you achieve your goals.
Dion Lim has seen it all. As an Asian-American woman in the hyper-competitive, white—and male—dominated business of TV news, her career path required a powerful blend of street smarts, determination, and a willingness to learn from mistakes—all of which she learned on the job. Today, she’s an ABC anchor in one of the biggest cities in the country.
In Make Your Moment, Dion guides you through what she has learned on the career battlefield and what it means for other working women today. She’ll take you through the treacherous—and often entertaining—landscape of the modern workplace, covering virtually every situation you’re likely to experience. From the art of thinking quickly on your feet to #MeToo moments, you’ll learn how to master office politics, make online/social media dynamics (good and bad) work for you, and thrive under pressure.
Dion learned how to stay true to herself, so she could find her moment and make it, rising from a local reporter to the national stage.
Now it’s your turn.
