The differences between men and women often play out in the workplace through leadership style, teamwork, and strategic networking. Build your awareness of how men and women are socialized and rewarded for "right behavior" and how to avoid being misunderstood (verbally or non-verbally) when speaking to a person of a different gender or generation. Speaker: Toni McMurphy, president, Infinite Impact
b. The Coach Approach to Leadership - Ambassadeur Ballroom 3
In this fun and interactive workshop, women leaders will learn the value of taking a coach approach to leadership. By using the coach approach with team members, a leader's natural abilities will rise to the surface. The coach approach to leadership will lessen the need for the leader to "fix" every situation and bring out the best in others. This session will help you to understand the inner blocks that prevent leaders from being effective; provide a leadership wheel to self-identify your current situation; and provide coaching skills, techniques, and tools that can immediately be applied to any situation. Speaker: Monica Sauls, talent development manager, Walgreens
c. Speaking with Confidence, Motivating Your Audience Every Time - Ambassadeur Ballroom 1
The qualities that make you a dynamic pharmacist and a successful business woman are the very qualities that can stand in the way of making you an effective communicator. You have gotten as far as you have in your education and position because you are results-driven, you get things done rapidly, you multitask, and you delegate. We will discuss the power of the unspoken word, how you are perceived, communicating so you are heard, and how to speak effectively and with inspiration in impromptu situations. Speaker: Beth Hackett, contingent workforce program and vendor management manager, Express Scripts, Inc.
