In today’s complex work environment, it’s more important than ever for women to look out before they lean into their ambition.

Today at the 2015 Women's Summit® Succeed and Thrive! presented by Bryant University, Bonnie Marcus, M.Ed., an award-winning entrepreneur, president of Women’s Success Coaching and dynamic thought leader on women in the workplace, is presenting a workshop titled, “Look Out Before You Lean In.”

Marcus’s presentation will address how the path to the top isn’t straightforward, and why it’s critical to understand workplace dynamics in order to avoid potential barriers. The session will show women how to identify and plug into the power grid of their organization, as well as provide the necessary tools to understand and overcome obstacles in order to achieve success.

“In today’s complex work environment, it’s more important than ever for women to look out before they lean into their ambition,” said Marcus, who also is a contributing writer for Forbes and Business Insider. “Looking out involves observing and understanding the rules, grasping who has the power and assessing the organizational culture. Women must also network strategically to build allies and champions with key stakeholders and self-promote to get ahead. All of these actions enable women to navigate the workplace successfully and reach their career goals.”

Marcus’s presentation is in Session A from 9:45 until 11 a.m. ET. For more information on the 2015 Women's Summit® Succeed and Thrive!, visit

Later this month, Marcus will release the “The Politics of Promotion,” which is the first book ever to show women how to understand, become savvy and succeed in workplace politics without compromising their integrity or feminine traits. For more information on “The Politics of Promotion,” visit
