Women of Influence – Women Leadership Program

The mission of the Woman of Influence – Women’s Leadership Program is to bring together high-potential women to build a foundation of leadership skills that will advance their personal and professional goals while encouraging them to explore new paths.

Join an impressive group of women for this  leadership program filled with inspiring speakers, hands-on exercises, and plenty of opportunities to arm yourself with new tools to become a better leader.

Self Awareness : Key to Leadership Success

There is one quality that trumps all, evident in virtually every successful manager, leader and entrepreneur. That quality is self-awareness. The best thing leaders can do to improve their effectiveness is to become more aware of what motivates them and their decision-making. Yet, fostering self-awareness isn’t easy for some people. The leaders who succeed are the ones who are aware of the traits that may hold them back, and take action to address them. The workshop will challenge you to uncover the unknown aspects of the self, and anchor your personal leadership path in expanded awareness and intention. The tools used are simple, practical and easy to implement and follow.

Personal Branding : Why should I be important for You

What is common to any professional in a connected economy is “Personal Branding”. Irrespective of the nature and size of your organization and irrespective of your role within that organization, it is absolutely essential to create your own unique Personal Brand. A brand, which will help you find your purpose and stand out from the crowd. In this workshop we will help you identify this unique brand. Through a variety of hands on exercises, you will learn how to build and promote the online and ‘offline’ elements of your brand. And, you will also learn how to effectively represent both your company and yourself while talking to potential clients, investors or employers or critical stakeholders


Networking : Reaching out to Level Next

A strong network is essential for success, especially nowadays as personal reference is the most popular way of testifying. Most senior level executives will confirm that you can’t get to their level without a strong network and strong sponsors; still, for the majority of the women with whom we work, active networking does not happen enough. Women are so busy “getting it done” that it is hard to make time for networking. Many networking events are so big and seem like “nice to have,” not essential. While women know it’s important, networking is not urgent on a typical day. Putting off networking limits opportunities both internally and externally. The workshop provides simple and effective tool of knowing and leveraging your existing network and also create a stronger network without being seen in every networking event in the town.
