Women’s Leadership: 5 Approaches for Harnessing Your Strengths
Thank you for your interest in this webinar. The presentation has already occurred, but a recording will be available in the "Archives" section at the right in the near future.
There has been considerable recent excitement about Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg’s book Lean In, which serves as a call for women to seek challenges, take a seat at the power table, and pursue their career goals in earnest. At Babson, our focus is on developing entrepreneurial leaders – those who know their affordable loss, experiment through action, and take calculated risks in order to create new opportunities for growth and value creation.
A critical building block in the process of becoming an entrepreneurial leader is self-understanding. Specifically, leaders need to understand and amplify their own personal and professional strengths in order to make a strategic and lasting impact.
This short webinar will describe five approaches that women leaders can use to harness their strengths in order to accelerate individual and organizational performance. The webinar will also give a preview of Babson Executive Education’s 5-day offering, Women’s Leadership Program: From Opportunity to Action
and will feature live testimonials from a few past participants of the program.
