This week, Skye Learning is spotlighting Ann Connolly, a retired management consultant with a specialty in business strategy. Connolly is a subject matter expert for the Certificate in Leadership for Women in Business. Throughout this certificate, she discusses networking, communication, management, negotiation, and other leadership skills, especially as they relate to women.
Connolly has more than 30 years of experience within the financial services industry. During her career, she specialized in retirement, asset management, banking, and insurance.
In the video below, Connolly shares the distinctions between how men and women communicate in the business world. She also suggests that we should be “bilingual” in the workplace to account for these gendered differences, and she encourages women to express their communication frustrations as they occur.
