Develop your people skills. Having people skills; being approachable, friendly, pleasant and respectful of others; requires that you actually interact with humans. Even in a technology-centric world, face time is essential for establishing relationships. When you're able to make others feel at ease, they're more likely to cooperate.

As for working in a man’s world, allow femininity to be an asset... Women build consensus. We pull together to solve problems and on a race team, that is a helpful skill.
