Leadership Presence for Women

The women-only focus of this course allows a safe environment to openly (and vulnerably!) discuss challenges and biases that are unique to women, including advocating for yourself, navigating the double bind of being pushy and being a pushover, and considering the implications of the competency threshold. You will leave more confident, connected and focused.

Great leaders are expected to portray great leadership.

Leadership Presence for Women is a powerful two-day virtual workshop designed to help rising women leaders own the room, earn trust, drive action and win opportunities. Women will learn how to leverage core strengths and use communication to project confidence and credibility in any situation. In a small group environment, two expert coaches provide tips, tactics and feedback about real issues experienced by rising women leaders. Along with live practice and real-time discussion, participants will also learn how to use situational awareness to project leadership presence.

Important Note: Men can benefit just as much from these lessons, and there’s no male-bashing in this course whatsoever! We created this course to empower women to approach the existing biases that interfere with their leadership presence and career goals.

People perceive your presence as a leader based on how you communicate.
