EDS: Executive Leadership Presence

October 19-20, 2022 | Rancho Bernardo Inn | San Diego, CA

Executive Leadership Presence is designed to develop leadership presence as a means to inspire confidence, engage and influence others, and maintain productivity while increasing visibility and career mobility. This two-day program will introduce participants to a unique framework and toolkit of 12 specific attributes, skills and thought processes that work together to help them build knowledge and expertise.

Here's what past attendees said about their experiences at Executive Leadership Presence:

  • "Branding is something that's talked about all of the time from a product perspective. But rarely is the opportunity presented to talk about personal branding. I was looking forward to this content, and it over-delivered – loved every minute of it!"

  • "Absolutely valuable information presented with passion and practiced with other women hungry to learn. Must-have training for aspiring women leaders."

  • "The Executive Leadership Presence seminar provides the missing links in career development and sheds light on the things that keep you from moving up in your career all in a candid and safe environment."
EDS: Leading with Power and Authenticity

October 19-21, 2022 | Rancho Bernardo Inn | San Diego, CA

Leading with Power and Authenticity (LWPA) is designed to provide you with the tools to master competencies critical to sustainable performance. Create exponential impact by cultivating the authenticity and powerful connections that inspire trust and confidence from peers and high-performing teams. With an experiential learning environment, combining theory and practice, you will clarify your leadership vision and learn tactics for making it a reality.

In their own words, here's what a handful of past attendees took away from Leading with Power and Authenticity:

  • "I learned so much about myself and the inner strength it took to get me this far, and how I can harness that in my current position and beyond to be a better leader."

  • "EDS: LWPA was a safe space to explore my challenges, triumphs, failures, and insecurities with some truly amazing women. The feedback I received was so generous and I have a new set of tools - plus increased confidence to use them."

  • "LWPA was one of the best training experiences due to the amazing women that attended and the presenters' unique wisdom, insights and guidance. A must-do!"

Webinar Opportunity: Living and Leading with Purposeful Empathy
Open to all members
Thursday, August 18, 2022 • 11:00 am – 12:00 pm (Eastern)
Join The WICT Network and Anita Nowak, Ph.D., author & professor, Desautels Faculty of Management, McGill University, as we discuss ways to create cultures of empathy.
Empathy is having a moment. In this day and age, empathy has never been more important to democracy and the future. Now, more organizations understand the importance of empathic leadership and culture. The good news, according to Dr. Anita Nowak, is that humans are born to empathize and collective empathy has been a part of our successful evolution as a species. In this interactive presentation, Dr. Anita Nowak will unpack her new model of purposeful empathy which draws from neuroscience, leadership studies, and positive psychology.
Here are a few points attendees can expect to learn from the webinar, related to creating cultures of empathy:
  • Why cultures of empathy at work improve performance, innovation, and other KPIs
  • How organizations can deploy empathy for social impact
  • Why elevating our empathic consciousness can inspire profound purpose in our lives
Note: This complimentary webinar is open to all members. The WICT Network records all webinars and posts them in our Online Learning Library.
