The world needs more women in positions of power and influence.
Our latest topic, “Women Rising: Breaking the Habits That Hold You Back” is co-written by the power team of leadership expert, Sally Helgesen and bestselling leadership coach, Marshall Goldsmith. Exceptionally, this topic is designed to be used by women only.
Sally and Marshall have observed over the years that women often face different sorts of challenges in the workplace than men. It is logical then that men and women might develop different behaviours in response to these challenges. But as Marshall outlined in his best-selling book, “What Got You Here, Won’t Get You There”, the behaviours that may have worked early in one’s career may become roadblocks as one seeks to advance.
This women-only topic outlines inter-related behaviours that Sally and Marshall have observed may work against women who wish to take their career to the next level. Participants will have an opportunity to share and support other women as they investigate the gifts that they already bring to their work and how they can move out of their comfort zone for greater success and fulfilment.
We hope the ideas in this topic contribute to helping women rise higher to make an increasingly positive impact on our organizations and our world!
This topic invites participants to:
- Explore the most common habits that we have observed hold women back.
- Identify which individual habits you personally wish to transform.
- Cultivate strategies and allies to help you rise!
