Advance Women At Work Level II: Leadership Training for Women

Intended Audience: Mid to senior-level female managers and executives

In this age of transformation and disruption, leading with purpose and without fear is critical to thrive.  Female leaders are uniquely positioned to succeed given inherent feminine strengths, including EQ and social relational skills. But we still face a myriad of internal and external barriers that hold us back from achieving our potential. Research shows we are less likely to interrupt others so they can share their innovative ideas, but we are more likely to be interrupted. We are more prepared, yet avoid taking risks because we fear we are not prepared enough. We are social, but less inclined than men to form strategic networking relationships. We lift each other up, but consistently struggle to advocate for ourselves.


The Advance Women At Work Level II workshop explores these contrasts and offers valuable insights, new skills and alternative methods to help attendees be more successful.  The training is relevant for every modern female leader, whether your purpose is to break through that glass ceiling to effect meaningful change, build your own business, or align your current company to purpose.   


Attendees will leave with: 

  • A roadmap of how to identify their purpose for the company and themselves

  • Real business examples and the latest research on how world-class leaders and companies are driving innovation

  • Techniques for reducing bias and interruptions in the workplace

  • Strategies on how to leverage alliances and relationships to advance their mission

  • A tactical plan to apply what they’ve learned so they can inspire and lead from the inside out

Pitch To Win: Sales Communications and Coaching for Growth
