Course Description

In this course for women, learners will undertake a leadership style assessment, examine their current effectiveness as a leader and identify leadership goals. We will examine perceived masculine and feminine leadership traits and evaluate their strengths and weaknesses. Participants will learn about and practice feminine leadership traits such as deep listening, collaboration, relationship building, humility and intuition as well as how to become more effective at masculine traits such as speaking up, being confident and overcoming perfectionism.

In the course, participants will: 

  • Identify their own leadership style and leadership goals 

  • Examine and assess different leadership models and behaviors

  • Examine the impact and potential for ourselves, our teams, and our organizations when we choose to practice different leadership styles 

  • Identify specific areas of new focus and practice 

  • Learn and practice new tools such as a listening tracker, a leadership effectiveness log.

Learners will be supported after class with a leadership diary and an online, private community of practice.
