Women leaders face unique challenges in the workplace. Although research shows that women hold 50 percent of middle management positions, only 5.2 percent of CEOs in Fortune 500 companies are women. Developing strong leadership skills, especially in the areas of strategic planning, resilience, influence, networking, self-promotion, and risk-taking will better equip women to address these challenges and thrive as leaders in the workplace. This highly interactive workshop is designed to enable women to step into leadership roles and lead effectively. We will focus on customizing career advancement strategies to find the meaning and purpose that will inspire you in your career, and learning to use tools that will enable you to reframe obstacles and work toward solutions. Utilizing a robust structure of lectures, role-plays, experiential exercises, coaching techniques, and whole-community learning processes, this course draws upon content from cutting-edge female leadership models. You will understand how to enlist sponsorship and mentorship by building meaningful networks. And, you will develop a communication style to take ownership of your accomplishments.
This course includes a non-refundable materials fee of $5 to be paid at the time of registration.
