Advancing Women In Leadership 

Advancing Women_Butler
Women continue to blaze the trail to advance to the top of organizations, currently holding about half of the country's managerial and professional jobs. While this is a dramatic increase from 20 years ago, women are still vastly underrepresented in the senior executive ranks.


As women navigate the path to higher management positions, they are challenged to define and develop their unique leadership style to enhance their effectiveness and impact in their organizations. Women must proactively manage their growth and development to prepare for the leadership roles they desire.


Through an action learning approach, Advancing Women in Leadership will help you uncover and integrate your unique strengths and qualities that will help you thrive and succeed in your current and future leadership roles.


Advancing Women in Leadership will be based in part on the Emotional Intelligence leadership methodology. To enhance real life learning, participants will participate in a variety of learning methodologies, including self-assessments, lecture, case study discussion, reflection, experiential and action-based role playing and peer coaching. Outcomes include 360-degree assessment, a personal leadership development plan and peer coaching skills.

Group Work.

What instantly comes to mind when you hear that statement? For some, group work feels like a dreaded nightmare; and for others, group work feels like an excellent opportunity to take control. 


We have all worked with a group before, and we all know how we personally interact and react when faced with different challenges. We each have our own personality and we know what sparks a leader inside of us and we also know what makes us feel most intimidated. Often times while working with a group, it is common for us to lose focus and designate minor tasks to ourselves-leaving our natural talents untapped. How does this really 
impact your life?
