This is the second installment of Jonni Redick’s two-part webinar series How Women Rise. The first part looked into perfectionism, people-pleasing, waiting for others to see you, social relationships over networking, not developing allyship, and not having a vision for your career as the top reasons keeping women from achieving career goals. For this session, Jonni talks about the six other habits and how women can overcome these towards their success.
Jonni Reddick is a 29-year veteran, who rose through the ranks from a county clerk worker to becoming the first female captain of the Contra Costa California Highway Patrol (CHP) Area and retiring as the assistant chief with the CHP. She also led coordination and response for various critical incidents, civil disturbances, natural disaster response, and mutual aid events.
Specifics of this session include:
- A brief recap of the concepts and the six habits discussed In the first part of the series.

- Hesitant to claim your wins: The barriers women face and internal factors preventing them from claiming their wins.
- Minimizing: How this manifests physically or through language, how women do this almost unconsciously, and the importance of recognizing it and awareness when it happens.
- Being the expert: The other facets of the professional experience that women tend to miss on and not be acquainted with by focusing on expertise.
- Too emotional: How emotions aren’t inherently a negative attribute, the ways women self-monitor their responses in fear of being seen as too emotional, and the value in acknowledging how emotions can impact mindset.
- Rerunning the tape: Women’s tendency to not move on, ruminate, and beat themselves up over things that already happened, how this inhibits positive outcomes and utilizing cognitive reframing to deal with this.
