Manal Omar Founder & CEO - Across Red Lines Truman National Security Fellow Inaugural Foreign Policy Interrupted Fellow
"Having a job that put me in the position of negotiating with powerful men, from NATO generals to local militia leaders in Northern Nigeria, I always struggled to bring my feminine energy into the room. I felt my only option was to adopt the masculine style of leadership.
Kasia showed me a different, and equally powerful way. Suddenly I had the tools to dig myself out. My attention had been so focused inward that I was not able to truly be heard.
After 20 years of peacebuilding and working as a conflict mediator, I walked away from Power With Men 101 with far more skills than any formal training had provided me."

"Over a 20-year career in international aerospace business development, I have routinely presented to, negotiated with, and closed multimillion-dollar deals with rooms solely comprised of men – including multinational CEOs, government ministers and Generals across Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Very rarely was there another woman in the room.
Foundations of Power exponentially improved my ability to read and influence power dynamics in the room, move past any moments of speechlessness or uncertainty, make and receive requests powerfully and negotiate successfully at all levels."
