    The underpinnings of effective contemporary leadership are hopefulness when facing challenges and the capacity to quickly come back from failures. Optimism and resilience are critical to collaboration, team effectiveness and a “fail fast and pivot” organizational mindset. Yet, sometimes the subtle gender stereotypes that can be applied to women leaders restrict or misinterpret the use of optimism as naïve, and resilience as merely being cheery. In this session we will identify how we can possess and use optimism and resilience in multiple settings with a coherent professional leader demeanor.

    Key takeaways:

    • Using optimism as both emotion and vision for the transformational leader
    • Achieving resilience and optimism in order to be a present and mindful leader
    • Resilient thinking and coping strategies
    • Applying optimism and resilience as gateway to team collaboration
    • Addressing remaining subtle gender bias and leading

    Cultivating compassion within a company can be taught and learned at any level. 70% of Americans believe that incivility has reached crisis proportion with workplace rudeness steadily climbing. Rates of rudeness in the workplace jumped from 55% in 2011 to 62% in 2016. Rudeness isn’t just unpleasant, it also costs companies nearly $300 billion annually in lost productivity, absenteeism, turnover, and increased medical costs. The environment that we create in the workplace can have tremendous power! Just by teaching and incorporating compassion into workplace culture, we can change toxic environments and build cooperative teams that result in increased productivity and efficiency. Learn about the neuroscience and physiology of compassion, and the fixes you can make at the individual, team, and system-wide levels to increase your capacity for compassion.

    • Find actionable ways to find compassion for yourself and for those around you
    • Discover steps you can take to cultivate healthy workplace environments
    • Learn how self-compassion can help build resilience when faced with almost any workplace issue
    • Hear the latest research on the physiology of compassion and how it can heal toxic cultures

    The role of leader hinges on the ability to share a vision, set of goals, strategy and set of attitudes that will gain others’ support and action. In short, it demands that women leaders use powerful communication tools to assertively motivate, inspire, and influence. Whether moving others to action, followership, collaboration, or change, our communication is pivotal to high-level teamwork, results, innovation and creative problem solving. In this webinar we will identify the skills needed to use communication power in today’s organizations and how those skills translate into practical action.

    Key takeaways:

    • Assessing your leader communication quotient
    • Identifying strategies to use powerful communication
    • Overcoming self-talk and external pressures that marginalize our messages
    • Applying assertive motivation and inspiration to achieve results through collaboration
    • Keeping our voice as women and transforming views of how influence is achieved
    • Staying centered and authentic in words and action
