What Holds Women Back

Research shows that women have natural strengths as well as challenges as leaders. This workshop highlights the traps women need to avoid to optimize their leadership potential. Self limiting beliefs and behaviors are examined as participants challenge and support each other to identify strategies to overcome these obstacles.

• learn what impedes women’s progress in organizations
• brainstorm steps to overcome obstacles
• build a community by sharing struggles and strategies with other women

Cultivating a Powerful Presence: Strategies to Advance Your Career

Women often feel their voices are not heard and as a result organizations don’t get the benefit of diverse perspectives and innovative thinking. By identifying attributes of successful leaders, participants crystalize the vision they have of themselves as an influential and impactful leader and identify actions that will advance their careers.

As a result of this workshop, attendees will:

• learn what characteristics are key to successful leadership and explore the challenges women face.
• reflect on and own their strengths and begin to articulate their vision as a leader now and in the future.
• commit to actions that communicate greater levels of confidence and clarity.

Presenting Your Leadership Brand With Confidence
Leaders’ ability to clearly and concisely communicate what they stand for can determine how effectively they can motivate, influence and inspire others. Participants will explore and articulate a clearer picture of the beliefs and values that drive them and their approach to leading others.

As a result of this workshop, attendees will:

• explore their beliefs and values and reflect on how that shapes them as a leader.
• create a Leadership Brand Statement that communicates strengths and contributions to business success.
• present to others and increase self-confidence and ownership of who they are as a leader.

RE-WIRE: Release that Inner Critic and Achieve Your Professional Goals
How can we use the power of our mind to reach our goals and not be driven by fear? Research indicates that what we tell ourselves impacts our behavior in ways we don’t even realize. People who pay attention and understand how to manage their inner selves, thoughts, and emotions are happier and more successful.

We are in unprecedented times, and for people even in the best circumstances, stress has overwhelmed many working professionals. The objective of this workshop is to better understand the stress response, how it impacts our bodies and minds, and learn tools to help manage stress. We will explore how each participant experiences their own stress, and then how they can better support their team, colleagues, and family.
