Though long overdue, women are increasingly moving into leadership roles. Consequently, women have more opportunities to shape the workplace in a meaningful way. Making the most of those opportunities will take persistence, persuasiveness, and leadership. It will also take courage. This webinar will highlight courage as the most important leadership virtue, and provide strategies that women can apply in workplace settings to broaden their leadership influence. Specific examples about courageous women leaders will be used to illustrate the webinar concepts.

Key concepts covered in this webinar include:

  • “No win” perceptions that women often face at work
  • Current statistics that underscore the leadership gap that still needs to be closed
  • Why courage is essential to human and organizational success
  • The differences between two different leadership dispositions, Fillers (encouragement) and Spillers(discouragement)
  • Examples of courageous, and not-so-courageous, women at work
  • Tips on how women can be more courageous at work, and how they can inspire more courageous behavior among those they lead
