The first essential step to being a powerful, influential, authentic and resilient leader
“The challenge facing women is to have vision be one of the things we are known for. No vision, no leadership.”
Women and the Vision Thing, Herminia Ibarra and Otilia Obodaru, 2009, Harvard Business Review.
The ability to develop a strategic perspective has been identified in several studies as the one competence where men outscore women significantly when assessing outstanding leadership. In this inspiring, practical and thought-provoking master class Anne Dargan from Rapid Change Consultancy shares the inside track to being strategic so that you:
Go from: being bogged down in the minutia, stuck in the weeds and living day to day
To: playing a bigger game and making more of a difference
Go from: feeling like you’re pushing a boulder up hill, that your team just don’t get it
To: being firmly in the driving seat, giving clarity of direction and having everyone bought in and pulling in the same direction
Go from: being pissed off that you’re working your butt off and no-one seems to notice
To: being recognised as adding value and having a seat at the table where you can influence big decisions
Go from: getting distracted and not moving things along, dwindling energy and overwhelm from doing it all
To: having clarity of direction, being full of energy, ideas and motivation to carry things through
This event is ideal for experienced and aspiring leaders alike.
