Workshop Description/Agenda

Dear Fellow Leader:

We've never met, but you and I have plenty in common. We're women in leadership positions. Despite tremendous advances women professionals have experienced over the years, we still find ourselves facing tough challenges. We get mixed messages and mixed reactions as we take on leadership roles. And all too often, we get only mixed results when leading others.

That's why I'm eager to share news of an incredible leadership training opportunity for women like us: Leadership & Management for Women. Developed by the National Businesswomen's Leadership Association, this intensive one-day workshop is designed to build on our inherent talents and strengths to help us become more effective, more confident and more successful.

In this results-focused program, you will learn ...

  • Strategies for effective leadership at all levels -- in every situation
  • Discipline and feedback skills for improving employee performance
  • Supervision techniques guaranteed to earn you cooperation and respect

  • How to sell your ideas in meetings and to the boss
  • Tools for handling confrontation and conflict with ease
  • Motivation strategies for bringing out the best in your employees

That's just the beginning! You'll discover how to disagree firmly but tactfully without backing down. How to effectively delegate. How to turn around specific unwanted employee behaviors. How to keep your ideas from being drowned out by louder male voices in meetings.

What's more, you'll develop a Personal Action Plan -- a road map to put you on the fast track to achieving your leadership goals. In a relaxed, stress-free environment, you'll learn shoulder to shoulder with other professional women from your area, networking with leaders you'd never have had the chance to meet otherwise.
