Highlight: “The second that you start looking to your side at your competitors or looking back at your competitors, you've lost. You have to keep your face forward and keep forging your path. What is going to work for you? What is your company made of? Don't start looking at other people. What's right for you?” - Josy Amann

Don’t take things personally.

Don’t take things personally, Josy Amann - Pass the Mic

Highlight: “It's so easy to get angry, or get caught off guard, and take things personally. When you stop for a minute and say, ‘Where is this coming from?’. Maybe they're not trying to personally attack… Assume good intentions, and try not to take things personally.” - Josy Amann

Speak up.
