The Confident Leader

 

Everyone has some level of confidence; it has brought you to where you are today. The Confident Leader is designed to guide you through the next steps — getting out of your comfort zone on purpose, identifying a meaningful goal, developing a path to achieve the goal and moving in entirely new ways. Supported by five fundamental skills and an action-learning environment, join other smart, motivated women to discover and challenge your personal capacity.

The complexity and pace of today's business environment challenges even the most experienced professionals. The demand for effective decisions in short time frames and with limited information is only the beginning! Today's professionals are also expected to communicate effectively, manage their time, deal with conflict, follow through on promises, and exhibit consistency in their day-to-day behavior.

The Confident Leader will address these challenges, systematically examining and strengthening five fundamental skills: critical thinking, decisiveness, clarity of communication, integrity of word and act, and consistency. In addition, an action-learning format requires the application of this knowledge to a specific project, which participants select as the focal point of their work.
