    Most people craft goals for themselves at the start of the year. In some cases, it’s in the form of New Year’s resolutions. However, as the year progresses, we find ourselves juggling competing priorities and encountering time challenges that subsequently leave us in a rut, unmotivated, and not accomplishing our goals. It’s not a good feeling, and if no action is taken we find ourselves carrying the same goal over to the next year.  Get a jumpstart on 2018 by learning from a master planner and coach on how to define your best year yet.  This session is for you if you want a blueprint for creating concrete steps to achieving your goals.  Be inspired and network with like-minded folks like you ready to do the work to have a different result. 

    Learning Objectives

    • Learn how to set goals and outline the steps to achieve your goals
    • Learn ways to stay motivated and accomplish your goals
    • Gain an understanding of the importance of accountability and the role it plays in successfully reaching your goals. 

    Make new connections with other women who can help support your new year aspirations.

    As technology has disrupted nearly every industry, many women feel forced to pivot to stay relevant, while others choose to pivot to stay engaged. Still, other women may be struggling to get back into the workforce after taking time off to raise kids — but unsure of what to do next. Words like "hustle" and "grit" have become trendy. And we are told we need to think strategically, cultivate our own brands and sell ourselves. But how do we pivot or radically relaunch our careers?

    In a disruptive job market where industries are evolving and jobs are less secure than ever, we all need to think of ourselves as entrepreneurs - even if we aren't running our own businesses.

    Wendy Sachs, the author of the critically acclaimed new book, Fearless and Free-How Smart Women Pivot and Relaunch their Careers will give you the tips, hacks and strategies for how to grow confidence, engineer serendipity, embrace failure, brand yourself, network effectively and be more visible.

    In this webinar you will learn how to:

    • Grow confidence
    • Present with confidence - no more "sorrys" and other shrinker words
    • Take risks and embrace failure
    • Engineer Serendipity
    • Re-imagine networking
    • Brand yourself without bragging

    Wendy Sachs is a master of the career pivot. She is the author of Fearless and Free—How Smart Women Pivot and Relaunch their Careers – a book O Magazine chose as a “title to read now.” An Emmy-award winning TV news producer, Wendy has worked at Dateline NBC, Fox and CNN. She was also a Capitol Hill press secretary, public relations executive, CNN contributor and editor-in-chief of Care.com. And in a more random move, Wendy worked as the on-air spokesperson for Trip Advisor. A frequent speaker, Wendy has written about politics, work/life balance and women’s issues for multiple publications and appeared on dozens of radio and TV shows including the TODAY show, Good Morning America, Fox, MSNBC and CNN’s Headline News. Wendy was recently listed on Forbes.com as a “40 Over 40” Women to Watch.

    Women as Assertive Leaders of Healthy Conflict


    WLC Member: FREE
    Non-Member: $199

    Women leaders handling conflict is too often a “hot button” when we look at subtle, and sometimes not so subtle, gender bias. Words that get attached to women addressing conflict include: aggressive, emotional, too nice, cat-fight, pushover, etc. By using the tools of assertive thinking and behavior, collaboration, and a healthy conflict mindset, effective leading does not have to be seen through the lenses of male or female – it just needs to be viewed as effective.

    Key takeaways:

    • Identifying and addressing gender based split views of assertive behavior
    • Knowing what a healthy conflict mindset brings to team and organizational success
    • Considering collaborative competition as a new approach to achieving healthy conflict
    • Transitioning away from conflict avoidance and/or accommodation to assertive collaborative actions
