What is a leader anyway? Is leadership a skill or an approach that naturally emerges? Can the barriers restricting leadership be removed? By engaging in Women Leadership Series participants wake up to, or become conscious of, leadership – not as personal achievement – but rather as emerging from being their values, vision and the future of the organization they lead. Ultimately, participants become the force driving the future of the organization.
Experience a 10 module series – each consisting of a full-day learning experience specifically designed around the strength of women leaders. The modules move participants from thinking about leadership – as something they either aspire to or as a set of skills they need to acquire – to being a leader in their organizations and in their lives.
Bold conversations force participants to confront their fears and their authenticity as leaders. Participants discover the impact on themselves, their work lives, and their organization, and gain the clarity required to begin the work of transforming their leadership.
