Who It’s For

Women at all stages of leadership; class is put into coaching groups with peers with similar levels of experience

Why this Course?

Research now shows that female leaders naturally have more of the competencies required to be successful in the 21st century. This interactive workshop will explore how women leaders can recognize and nurture what are considered traditionally ‘feminine traits’ while also developing in areas where men are naturally stronger. In this course, we’ll bust some of the myths of women’s leadership and lead participants through our four-part “Authentic Leadership for Women” framework.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understand the link between ‘feminine leadership traits’ and high-performing companies and teams
  • Build self-awareness by reflecting on your own leadership journey
  • Gain tools for overcoming the mental blocks keeping you from achieving the next level of success
  • Learn how to lead with authenticity by defining your purpose and strengthening your leadership brand
  • Build your network of peers and mentors
