Watch Helen Xu, Cost Engineer for Chrysler, share how leaving her family, friends and comfortable job in China to move to Canada for her MBA, was the one thing she was most afraid to do, but did it anyway. Growing up in China, she honed her negotiation skills at the markets, daily, and now uses that experience to create win-win situations for both her company and their suppliers. She advises girls to never be afraid to negotiate, do your homework on your counterpart, and know your limits so you can be confident in dealings with others.
