Did you know that most startups fail not because of strategy and funding, but because of the founders’ mindsets? It may seem frivolous to focus on your mindset as a founder, or as an aspiring one, but as a three time member of successful founding teams, Katharine Zaleski knows that all the cash in the bank doesn’t matter if you don’t have emotional mastery to weather the ups and downs of entrepreneurship at startups or if you're launching a project within a large organization.
Join us for this virtual event as Katharine Zaleski, co-founder of PowerToFly, will discuss Emotional Mastery as key to success in launching any project within a large organization, and how she is helping to improve gender equality.
