Navigating the Double Bind (and other gender biases) Register here
Many women in leadership roles encounter a common dilemma. When you communicate in a direct and assertive manner, you may be viewed as competent, but not necessarily liked. Or, if you are not assertive enough, you may be liked, but perhaps considered a less competent leader. Consequentially, you may be challenged more frequently, making it difficult to lead teams, departments, or organizations. In this workshop, we will explore the double bind and other gender biases associated with leadership and identify strategies for building resilience and success.

Leading with Emotionally Intelligent Communication Register here
Emotional Intelligence (EI) is a defining characteristic of great leadership and is a competency current (or aspiring) women leaders can develop and leverage for building trust and growing influence. EI is our ability to understand, manage and express our emotions while recognizing and responding appropriately to the emotional states of others. In this workshop, you will strengthen your EI competence through understanding EI’s key principles, developing your self-and social awareness, and practicing how to communicate in emotionally intelligent ways, the result of which can be more productive relationships, reduced conflict, and greater team performance.
