Join Us For The Women in Leadership Virtual Series!

June 22, 2023

Through this series of high energy sessions, women will learn tools to lean into their own confidence, manage through failure, and take control of their career. Competencies developed in this series are: Compelling Communication, Courage, Positive Approach, Continuous Learning, Decision Making, and Influencing.

Session 1: Radiate Confidence

Participants will explore women and confidence, quieting the inner critic, and conquering self-doubt to advance their career path. They also immerse themselves in a challenging, real-life scenario in which they identify specific tactics for leaning into confidence.

Session 2: Fail Forward

Participants will explore the consequences of fear and failure and the impact a fixed versus growth mindset can have on their ability to take risks. They learn how to mitigate those risks by forming a safety net that enables them to jump into the unknown…and achieve extraordinary things!

Session 3: Influence Your Career

Participants will learn how to be bold and ask for the next step in their career. They identify their stakeholders, learn how to craft a strategy, package their idea, and gain commitment from others.
