Meaning

This module will address the importance of building meaning for women in leadership roles. Meaning is a defining trait among leaders. Identifying what brings meaning involves both knowing your strengths and identifying your purpose in what you are doing. Part of identifying your purpose is naming your dreams, and once your purpose is identified alongside your strengths and meaning becomes clear, happiness naturally results. The happiness equation provides a strong base for effective leadership.

  • It All Begins with Meaning
  • Your Own Happiness Equation
  • Start with Your Strengths
  • A Sense of Purpose
  • Dream Catcher

Framing

Once we have identified our strengths and purpose, it is time to begin to identify who we are as a leader. Are we optimistic, pessimistic, and adaptable? Obstacles are a reality in leadership, and being comfortable with feedback and critique can help to use it to build our leadership skills. This module will discuss the importance of how we frame the successes and failures and how to move forward through obstacles along the way.

  • A Matter of Framing
  • The Practice of Optimism
  • Moving On
  • Ready for Change
  • The Journey, Not the Destination

Engaging and Energizing

It all comes together when we practice engagement. Engaging is when we commit to taking a step forward, to seize the opportunities in front of us. In order to take risks, we must be able to speak up for our dreams professionally as well as personally. This module will discuss how to find your voice as a leader, use your strengths to create opportunities in leadership in your career, and to utilize skills from centered leadership to effectively reach your career goals.
