    Leadership EDGE for Women: Visionary Leadership

    9:00am - 4:00pmSan Francisco, CA

    Leadership EDGE for Women: Visionary Leadership

    This is 1 of 7 stand-alone workshops designed to empower the women leaders in your organization to get the EDGE, enabling them to excel within their companies, develop their authentic leadership style, gain support, skills and tools, and elevate their success.

    While women executives have outscored their male counterparts in many critical leadership competencies, they have been perceived to lack strategic perspective and to be less “visionary” than men. These perceptions may be the only thing keeping women professionals from reaching the highest positions within their organizations.

    As a manager, it is your responsibility to execute on the tasks necessary to achieve strategic objectives. As a leader, your role is to utilize a strategic mindset to leverage opportunities for your team, division and the organization as a whole. In this session you will enhance your strategic thinking skills through the use of exercises and activities. In addition, you will gain a strategic perspective by understanding external factors and relationships that are key to the achievement of your goals. Vision and strategic perspective require big-picture thinking, the ability to establish direction, motivate and inspire, align people and effectively move an organization through change. Leadership and vision are not only critical at the executive level, but also at the departmental and team levels.

    Participants will explore what it means to be visionary, be provided with high-level strategies to make the transition from “manager” to “visionary” and participate in lively discussions on the topic of how women can leverage their unique skills and competencies to demonstrate vision and strategic thinking.

    Leadership EDGE for Women: Executive Presence: Courage, Credibility, and Visibility

    9:00am - 4:00pmSan Francisco, CA

    Leadership EDGE for Women: Executive Presence: Courage, Credibility, and Visibility

    This is 1 of 7 stand-alone workshops designed to empower the women leaders in your organization to get the EDGE, enabling them to excel within their companies, develop their authentic leadership style, gain support, skills and tools, and elevate their success.

    Think back to a recent meeting, when someone there just seemed to attract and engage everyone around the table. Someone like Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg or Virgin’s Richard Branson—someone who has the ability to walk into a boardroom, command attention, and leave everyone wanting more. While it may seem like some people “just have it,” executive presence is actually something that they’ve worked very hard to achieve.

    Executive presence is the unique combination of what you bring to the table (courage and credibility), what to do in the moment (physical appearance, language and presentation skills) and where you need to show up (visibility). Closing the gender gap will require stepping up, leaning into discomfort and acting with the confidence we women often wish we had (or had more of!). So if you’re wondering what you can do to build your confidence, banish your doubt and make your mark, join us for this highly interactive and valuable workshop.

    Leadership EDGE for Women: Communication and Influence for Impact

    9:00am - 4:00pmSan Francisco, CA

    Leadership EDGE for Women: Communication and Influence for Impact

    This is 1 of 7 stand-alone workshops designed to empower the women leaders in your organization to get the EDGE, enabling them to excel within their companies, develop their authentic leadership style, gain support, skills and tools, and elevate their success.

    To increase your ability to persuade, motivate and influence, effective communication is key. This, in turn, will help you to build rapport, relationships and connect with others. Using insights from the Myers-Briggs personality profile, you’ll identify your preferred communication style, overlaid with an understanding of innate gender-specific strengths and opportunities related to communication.

    You will also learn how to recognize the styles of others – so you can reduce conflict and improve performance. The ability to effectively communicate allows leaders to excel. The ability to effectively influence can take your leadership to the next level. Building off the self-awareness of their preferred communication style as well as emotional intelligence (EQ), participants will gain an understanding of the art of influence and develop the language to assert themselves with greater confidence. This will enable them to achieve more through shared resources in an environment where there are competing goals, dotted line reporting relationships and often times the need to influence without the given authority.

    Armed with the tools for powerful self-analysis, participants will uncover the obstacles that could be currently holding them back from achieving their full potential. They’ll complete the workshop with a new roadmap for improved communication and greater influence.
