For Women Only: Leadership and Management Skills

Not currently scheduled

Overview:

Women comprise close to 50% of the U.S. labor force but are faced with many challenges their male counterparts are not. Only 15% of women hold senior management positions, and according to trends indicate that this percentage is starting to drop after a decade-long increase. Today's organizations demand both leadership and management skills in order to achieve sustainable result. For women, these skills have a more significant impact on one's career than men.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Examine leadership and management skills and help develop competencies needed to meet the challenges women face in the workplace
  • Establish the distinction between leading and managing
  • Identify skills and competencies needed to be effective as both a leader and manager
  • Develop individual and group actions needed to achieve performance goals
