I’ve got a wonderful, exciting new opportunity to share with all my senior-level female managers that is going to push you along in your journey to finding the executive leadership skills that work best for you! I have been enlisted as a leadership expert, alongside Phaedra Boinodiris and Jenn Giordano, for the upcoming year-long program put together by NC State University titled Advanced Women in Technical Leadership.

This program gives you access to a flourishing community of top female executives, who range from alumni of the program to the faculty and experts of past iterations of this incredible course. 

This program is designed to help you hone the skills you already possess as an executive leader, while also developing your ability to motivate the people working around you. The goal of the program—and my goal as an expert—is to help you reach a place where you can open up your own view on leadership, defeat the hurdles you feel are holding you back from your ultimate success, and gain confidence and stability as a leader and mentor, grounding yourself in a form of leadership that makes you capable of anything.

How does all that sound? Pretty good, right? Becoming a member of this program gives you access to nine 1.5- to 2-hour workshops with Phaedra, Jenn, and me, as well as one-on-one coaching sessions. There will also be a group-coaching session each month, where you’ll get to learn alongside your fellow peers—and create lasting relationships and networking contacts with women whose goals match your own. 

In addition to all this informative, transformative online content, the Advanced Women in Technical Leadership program offers two in-person retreats throughout the year, where you’ll have the chance to reinvigorate your passion for leadership in the company of some of the nation’s most impactful female executives. These in-person retreats are totally optional, and they aren’t included in the program fee—so you don’t have to worry about paying for them if you choose to opt out! 

I believe this program is going to provide so many women who already rock their leadership roles with an abundance of new and innovative tools to take back to their executive positions and use within the companies they work with. 

The workshop lineup for this Fall includes topics covering Virtual Leadership, Energy Leadership, Pivoting in Times of Crisis, and Managing Change. As you can see, we’re going to be talking about and working through a wide range of leadership material, some of which is going to be super useful to executives trying to adapt and push through the coronavirus pandemic. 

Later on in the spring, we’re going to talk about Personal Well-Being & Your Employees’ & Team’s Well-Being, Strategic Financial Analysis, Ethical Decision-Making, and Multi-Generational Leadership. I’m so excited to have the opportunity to share some of my own experiences in leadership positions with so many women, whom I know are capable of such great success in the executive world. 

I hope you’ll consider joining me this year in the Advanced Women in Technical Leadership program with NC State University. I know you won’t regret it, and I know we will work together to help you achieve your wildest leadership dreams.
