Women Lead with Powerful Conversations: Communicating for Breakthrough Results

GW-CEPL Powerful Conversations: Communicating for Breakthrough Results

This highly interactive 3-day workshop presented by Leslie Grossman, founder of the Women’s Leadership Exchange and author of "LINK OUT: How to Turn Your Network into a Chain of Lasting Connections" provides women leaders with a powerful set of tools to use immediately which will enable breakthrough results. While gender diversity is recognized as a hallmark of the most successful organizations, many studies - including “Women Rising: the Unseen Barriers” reported in HBR* - reveal that gender bias continues to exist in most organizations.  The good news is that whatever the organizational climate, there are key actions and behaviors women can take to lead successfully and improve workplace engagement, culture, and operational execution. This workshop will provide a new point-of-view which will drive breakthroughs for women leaders in critical areas of leadership. They include:

  • Leading with vision and purpose
  • Building trusted relationships and influential networks
  • Language, voice, presence and conversations
  • The mindfulness of confidence

As part of the 3-day workshop, there will be thought-provoking guest speakers, networking opportunities and the opportunity to propel workshop learning into immediate action with the support of post-workshop executive coaching.
