Women in the Arena

Women continue to be largely underrepresented in leadership roles across industries, but more are choosing to pursue positions of influence—choosing to boldly engage and “enter the arena.” The arena can feel threatening, but only those who choose to enter have a chance at victory. Through this course, participants will examine the limiting beliefs that keep them from performing at their best, then learn practical approaches for developing a grounded sense of confidence balanced with openness. Participants will conclude this course with a clear, personal definition of success and the confidence to pursue it.

Your Leadership GPS

Understanding who you are as a leader is a necessary step in growing your leadership acumen. This course leads participants through an evaluation of their current leadership in light of the four components of authentic leadership: self-awareness, balanced processing, relationship transparency and internalized moral perspective. Participants will consider their own role as an aspiring or practicing leader and identify their own personal leadership characteristics and qualities, focusing on areas of growth and development. This course will emphasize both theory and practices, seeking to apply learning to participants’ current context.
