Advancing Women in Leadership
Women continue to blaze the trail to advance to the top of
organizations, currently holding about half of the country's
managerial and professional jobs. While this is a dramatic increase
from 20 years ago, women are still vastly underrepresented in the
senior executive ranks.
As women navigate the path to higher management positions, they
are challenged to define and develop their unique leadership style
to enhance their effectiveness and impact in their organizations.
Women must proactively manage their growth and development to
prepare for the leadership roles they desire.
Advancing Women in Leadership will help you uncover and
integrate your unique strengths and qualities that will help you
thrive and succeed in your current and future leadership roles.
Through an action learning approach, you will:
- Gain knowledge of the key competencies of Emotional
Intelligence and the link to your leadership effectiveness.
- Acquire skills to continuously build self awareness, overcome
blind spots and sustain effective leadership behaviors.
- Apply an intentional process to align your personal values with
your everyday leadership behaviors.
- Develop skills to sense other's feeling and perspectives,
emotional currents and power relationships to effectively manage
- Apply innovative frameworks and methodologies to drive
individual and team performance.

influence within my organization.

and levels of experience, will serve as a "board of directors" for
me in the future. I know I will be able to reach out to them
for advice and I can count on them to share ideas and
