The Unique Challenges of Executive Women Leaders
It's getting harder, not easier. Women who are in leadership positions today face unique challenges. Not only are they dealing with the complex business, budgetary, personnel and strategic issues every organization is navigating, but as women, they also hold primary responsibility in the realm outside of work. Raising children, caring for parents, keeping a primary relationship fresh and alive, and contributing leadership to a community, a special cause or a local school are personal mandates that cannot be shoved aside. All of this leaves little time for any personal interests outside of those commitments, and almost no time for the self-reflection and rejuvenation necessary for personal well-being and leadership impact.
How to Reinvigorate Your Self and Your Leadership
Rayona Sharpnack, author of Trade Up: 5 Steps for Redesigning Your Leadership & Life from the Inside Out,
a profound and practical guide, and the founder of the Institute for Women's Leadership (www.womensleadership.com
), will lead this thought-provoking and inspiring seminar on the traps and triumphs of leadership that are unique to woman executives.
Lacking the time for personal rejuvenation, many women executives find themselves increasingly distanced from their inner beliefs and passions. But if you don't lead from the inside out, you will find yourself constantly reacting to the demands of circumstances and other people rather than shaping or directing them in line with your business objectives and leadership passion.
This webinar has been designed for women executives and leaders, women aspiring to leadership and executive responsibility, and those in organizations supporting that development. In particular, participants will learn to:
- Understand what it means to reveal and shift context, in yourself and others
- Enable others to do more, which means letting the need for control go
- Recognize that the real source of passion comes from who people are being, not what they are doing
- Avoid the tendency to overplay personal strengths in times of stress and exhaustion
- Develop practices that sustain rather than diminish the personal and leadership qualities you desire
- Engage a community of others in supporting you, your inner needs, and your leadership vision
- Expand beyond your personal leadership context to shift the context of your organization and your community
This is a chance to bring your most pressing leadership challenges and questions to a network of supportive and influential women leaders. Special Bonus

She is a profoundly influential leadership teacher who has guided countless women leaders to achieve breakthrough results in all areas of their lives. The source of her success can be described in simple but powerful terms: while traditional leadership theory focuses primarily on the "doing" or functional aspects of leadership, Rayona urges leaders to create a new way of "being" by shifting their thinking, enlarging the context for possibility, and articulating a compelling and achievable vision.
