Nearly 350 Network of Executive Women members and supporters discovered how to be adaptable and agile, leadership skills necessary in today’s fast-changing work environments, at the NEW New England spring networking event, April 12, 2012 in Newton, Mass.

The event, held at the Newton Marriott, featured remarks from leadership expert Eileen McDargh, who offered advice on being "radically resilient” when professional and personal demands transcend regular work and life patterns.

"Radical resilience requires the courage to challenge, commit and contribute in ways that positively impact today and tomorrow,” said McDargh, founder and CEO of The Resilient Spirit. "You need to be anchored in what is most important to you."Intelligent optimism is asking how I can reframe an event to see what’s possible rather than impossible.”

Attendees also were invited to attend an optional morning workshop, when McDargh presented tips on leveraging individual skills and actions to further a career. "The definition of mentorship is the development of originals,” she said. "The single most important skill that we bring to the workplace is relationship building.”

Among the companies sending delegations to the event were Acosta, Advantage Sales & Marketing, Ahold USA, C&S Wholesale Grocers, Crossmark, CVS Caremark, Delhaize America, Garelick Farms, Hannaford Bros., JOH, Ocean Spray, Roche Bros. Supermarkets, Shaw’s Supermarkets and Stop & Shop.
