Lead Yourself:  Leverage gathered wisdom to accelerate women's success

Women work to carve a path to success that works for them within organizations.  They face specific challenges and have unique styles that companies and managers may not recognize or know how to manage.  While many lessons must be learned through experience, absorbing others' lessons can accelerate learning and success.

Explore the research and model through a mix of engaging lecture and video, targeted activities, and lively group discussions.

Participants will: 1) identify personal drivers, 2) adopt strategies and techniques to capitalize on individual strengths and overcome challenges, and 3) create a personal action plan to incorporate the insights into everyday lives and sustain progress.  Learn how to Let who you are work for you.
