CRITICAL SUCCESS FACTORS FOR WOMEN LEADERS

 

In 1986, Sara King was a key member of the team that published the first seminal research, "Breaking the Glass Ceiling", on women leaders. Sara brings over 25 years of experience in working with women leaders and has developed a framework for leadership success and the identification of derailment factors for women.

In this very engaging session, women leaders will examine their own profile of success and powerful influence and identify areas for development. They will also focus on the key ingredients that continue to hold women back: not developing and articulating a leadership vision, not paying attention to the political landscape, not strengthening the breadth and depth of relationships, and learning how to make relationships work to achieve goals. They will leave this session with practical tools and individual insights to apply in their current roles.
