The Advantages of Diverse Leaders: A Unique Leadership Approach 

This seminar identifies unique leadership opportunities and challenges facing women professionals to equip them with strategies to lead with clarity and purpose and assist those who work with them to better understand how to support their leadership.  Identifying the strengths and abilities of women leaders can provide valuable insights for everyone in the workplace. All association professionals, regardless of gender, are encouraged to attend.

During this interactive session, attendees will:

  • Identify their personal "Zone of Genius" to lead with greater clarity and purpose.
  • Recognize challenges and obstacles that hold them back.
  • Acknowledge the unique qualities female leaders offer their teams and learn how to leverage them for the benefit of the team.
  • Learn proven strategies to enjoy both professional achievement and personal balance.
  • Explore ways to build a supportive peer network.

Leaders who lead with increased self-awareness and intentionality from their Zone of Genius build trust, gain influence, increase productivity and innovation, produce increased financial returns for their organizations, and have greater satisfaction and joy in the journey. Who Should Attend? All association professionals are welcome, regardless of gender.
