Hello Lady Bosses!

Come join us for our very first installment of the Lady Boss Speaker Series:

Finding Effective Strategies to Drive Your Career Success

We will discuss strategies for how to actively manage your career and drive your own successes. You will have the opportunity to think about your own passions, personal values, and unique skills, and learn how they can be leveraged to enhance your career. We will also focus on effective goal setting because a goal without a plan is just a wish”. – Antoine de Saint-Exupery

This talk will focus on how to use storytelling in leadership to inspire great work. We'll cover:

  • How to enhance your career success
  • Breaking down our barriers
  • Leveraging your passions, values and skills
  • Setting effective goals
  • Creating a take home action plan

The goal of this talk is to provide effective strategies and ideas to help drive career success.
