When Paula and Lisa first met each other as two top female executives competing for the same multi-million dollar contract, they viewed each other as fierce competitors. Years later, they realized they had more in common than they first thought. Over the years, Paula and Lisa learned the value of complementing instead of competing. In the process, both women recognized how embracing the success of other women can, in fact, propel one’s own career.
