Successful Strategies for Women (Part 1): Envisioning your Business Beyond Today
Tuesday, June 7, 2022 at 11:30 am
This webinar will be the first in a two-part series focused on women in leadership. The goal is to focus on moving beyond the “why” a business was started - oftentimes to achieve a balance of life and work, and plan for the successful business growth into the future. This will include resources, how to identify obstacles, including our own weaknesses, and how female entrepreneurs can create the discipline and rigor to both create and execute on the plan. Without this knowledge, female leaders create an unknowing limitation for their business, and miss opportunities to maximize their overall earning power.

Successful Strategies for Women (Part 2): Strengths-based Leadership
Tuesday, June 28, 2022 at 11:30 am
This webinar is the second in a two-part series focused on women in leadership. The goal of the session is to focus on how women can increase confidence and overall happiness by fully embracing their strengths, and leveraging them for the success of their business. It is no secret that most female leaders focus on what they aren’t doing well, instead of what they ARE doing well. It’s time to stop focusing on the “weakness” and start focusing on the “strengths!”
When female leaders have an understanding of their strengths, and how to leverage them, they become strong leaders. In this session we will discuss the power and confidence that comes from understanding and fully embracing your strengths, and how to leverage them in leadership. Whether you own a one-person company, or a hundred-person company, your strengths – when embraced- can make all the difference. Almost as important as strengths, is understanding your weaknesses – or leadership gaps. Acknowledging these areas will be critical to understanding your leadership pitfalls, and / or surrounding yourself with people whose strengths are your weakness.
