Session Description
Women face unique challenges as they strive to become more powerful leaders. Why? Because leadership behaviors that are seen as ‘powerful’ in men  - aggressive debate, swift action, and risk-taking - are often labeled ‘pushy’ (or worse) in women. This undercurrent of spoken (and subtly implied) judgment can derail women’s trust in themselves…and in those whom they are entrusted to lead. In this workshop, women leaders will learn how to reclaim trustworthy relationships, both with themselves and others. The truth is, women are primed to develop trusting relationships: connections that inspire them to take risks and become the best versions of themselves. During the course of this workshop, women will gain the courage they need to build these relationships and make powerful strides in their leadership effectiveness.

Their work has been featured in New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg’s Business Week, Harvard Management Update, Time, USA Today and on national radio & TV including CNN and CNBC. Most important, perhaps, given these volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous times, their work in helping leaders and organizations rebuild trust is profoundly important.
