Understanding the skills that women need to hone in order to be more effective leaders

About this Event

"Finally I was able to see that if I had a contribution I wanted to make, I must do it, despite what others said. That I was OK the way I was. That it was all right to be strong." - Wangari Maathai

All women are leaders – in their businesses, homes, and communities. In this workshop, we’ll discuss the skills that leaders should work to improve in order to be more effective.

We’ll cover topics such as strategic vs tactical thinking, having difficult conversations, resilience, teambuilding, and growing other leaders, and discuss why they are important to master to become a more effective leader.

"Champions keep playing until they get it right." - Billie Jean King
