WOMEN IN INDUSTRY: Leadership Training
Each Class Sponsored by
Although women hold almost 52 percent of all professional-level jobs, American women lag substantially when it comes to their representation in leadership positions: They are only 14.6 percent of executive officers, 8.1 percent of top earners, and 4.6 percent of Fortune 500 CEOs (The Women’s Leadership Gap, 2015 update).
SCMEP’s Women in Industry Leadership training consists of four videos aimed at the professional woman interested in growing leadership skills to the next level. Course Outline:
- SOCIAL STYLES – Styles is a tool that helps you understand why some business relationships are more productive than others. As a participant, you will learn about your own interpersonal communication style and how to recognize behavioral clues that give insight to others. This session stresses the value of versatility as a tool to improve interpersonal communication in business relationships to achieve greater success.
- STRENGTHS BASED LEADERSHIP –Identifying your natural leadership talents and developing them into operational strengths is an essential tool in anyone’s toolbelt. Based on more than 50 years of Gallup research and explained in the best seller, StrengthsFinder 2.0, thirty-four natural leadership strengths are defined and explored. You will leave with a copy of the book which includes a code to access the online strengths assessment and discover your top five.
- POSITIVE PERSONAL STRATEGIES – Learn key strategies for using positive influence in your workplace and your life. Our outlook affects our interpersonal relationships, our health and our wellness. These tools will help you have a positive impact on the culture of your team and your organization.
- COMMUNICATING FOR RESULTS – Learn the power of direct and effective communication, how to approach “difficult” topics and resolve conflict. Tools include establishing goals for the discussion, identifying undesirable behavior and looking for the win/win while being mindful of selecting the right time and place.
