What if… you built your skills in the areas of negotiation, personal brand, networking and sponsorship to advance your career and the capability of the organization?
If you are a woman seeking to advance, this workshop will equip you with the mindset and skills to lead with confidence. Research shows that women bring unique characteristics and capabilities to the leadership challenges they face. To be successful, organizations need to leverage this diversity of leadership: to improve the quality of decision making, provide inspiration and role modeling, and tap into diverse points of view. In addition, having both women and men in leadership roles helps organizations reflect the customers they serve, giving the perspective needed to increase sales and fuel growth.
The Women in Leadership workshop is a highly interactive program, offering the combined global insight, experience and capability of both Interaction Associates and Innovative Facilitation. The 2-day session will provide the time and resources for leaders to do a significant amount of self-reflection about their leadership aspirations, intentions and behaviours. Building on pre-work, participants are introduced to powerful concepts through self-assessment, group practice sessions, exploratory discussions, and feedback from workshop facilitators and participants.
As a learner participating in the Women in Leadership workshop, you will gain:
- An increased understanding of your personal strengths and barriers to being a successful, self-aware and authentic leader;
- A personal brand statement that reflects a vision of your authentic leadership, including clarity about what engages you at work;
- Increased skill in having constructive conversation where actions are consistent with your values and aspirations, especially in high stakes situations;
- A plan to build/enhance your network for greater effectiveness and potential to be sponsored for opportunities within your organization;
- A toolkit of ways to leverage your strengths, address existing barriers and to recognize and manage gender bias; and
- An expanded and lasting network of women leaders.
