Boss Presence

Read Description

News Flash! Men and Women are different! There are the obvious physical differences, but we are also different in ways that are not easy to see, but often experienced. We think differently, we communicate differently and we respond differently. There are good reasons for that. We view the world from different perspectives.

Difference in perspectives brings more money to the bottom line. The problem is we’re missing perspective. We’re leaving money on the table! It’s because in most organizations, we’re lacking female leadership at senior levels. We don’t have the gender balance we need to best solve our biggest and most expensive problems. The question is how do we change this paradigm?

Join Melissa Greenwell for a riveting discussion on gender and leadership and learn how you can change practices, programs and behaviors that will enable you to be more profitable!

How to Get Men on Board

By engaging men in advocating for more equal workplaces, we’re creating better leaders, stronger businesses, more fulfilling lives for both women and men as well as establishing a business imperative required at all levels from all managers. The stats are staggering, in terms of where women stand in the workplace even after all this time, and will need an all hands-on deck approach to make the changes necessary for equality. Yet, while progress is slow, it is critical to understand that advancements are being made and this forward movement is not being solely spearheaded by women. This session will bring together top male executives to share their firsthand experiences and contributions for achieving gender equity within their organizations.

Lunch with a Stranger:

What if you could build community and change your city by adding new relationships to your network? Connections, big and seemingly small, almost always lead to accidentally great ideas. Entrepreneurs Mali Jeffers and Linda Kirby discuss how lunch with strangers -strategic cross-pollinations – is energizing new initiatives, creating stronger bonds and generating loyalty to place.

Disrupting your Life to Get Ahead

In every challenging situation, personal or professional, individuals face the pressure to play it safe and conform to the accepted norms. But doing so comes with heavy costs: passions stifled, talents ignored, and opportunities squelched.

Strategies to Stand Out, Step Up and Get Noticed

Read Description

Gender exclusion is still prominent in today’s work environments putting women in a challenging position – for obvious reasons around the lack of equity– but also for those trying to exist in a corporate landscape as they climb the ladder and try to make a name for themselves. The competition is fierce wherever you are, and whether you like it or not, you are part of it. How do you stand out without alienating others? How do you get taken seriously in a male-dominated room?
