Women in Leadership: Keys to the C-Suite

As a female executive, you face a variety of challenges you need practical strategies to overcome.

In this program, you will learn:

  • how to successfully resolve issues;
  • strengthen your emotional intelligence;
  • develop the skills necessary to become a better leader.

In recent months, many women in the workforce have been hit hard by the pandemic. The numbers confirm it: women have been more likely than men to lose their jobs. As the “she-cession” looms, this course offers women a chance to come together and enhance their respective toolkits.

Women are increasingly showing leadership locally, nationally and internationally in a wide range of fields — from business, administration and education to engineering, health and beyond. They are determined to shatter the glass ceiling that has long blocked them from filling upper-level management positions and tackling complex challenges.

Each woman has her own formula for making a difference. To find the approach that works for you, it helps to step back and look at the bigger picture. This course will guide you through developing an authentic leadership style. You will get to know yourself, your strengths and your limitations as you define your management philosophy.
