Crafting an individual leadership style is essential to earning a seat at the table. From this seat of power, you’ll be able to steer organizational decisions. In this highly interactive two-day workshop, you will learn to address the unique challenges women leaders face. We will focus on designing and refining your signature leadership style, developing tools for coaching yourself and others, expanding your leadership presence, and enhancing strategic thinking around managing difficult conversations. Academic research on gender biases, especially unintentional ones, will be discussed. A robust structure of lectures, role-play, coaching techniques, and experiential exercises will provide the practice necessary to create new leadership approaches. This workshop will take your leadership competencies to the next level, enabling you to enhance your impact on organizational strategy and execution.
While this course focuses on addressing challenges women leaders commonly face, the techniques apply to people from all backgrounds.
