Please join WXW and presenter Vicki Baker, Ph.D. for an interactive workshop designed for leaders (and aspiring leaders!) at all levels. In this workshop, you’ll learn:
- The top 4 mistakes all leaders make (and how to avoid them), and
- How to tap into your “inner leader.”
You’ll work in small groups to discuss common leadership mistakes, and then as a larger group to identify common themes and action steps to avoid making these mistakes. Our emphasis will be on women leaders in the workplace and at home. We’ll then use this information to identify ways to tap into your “inner leader.”
You’ll walk away with an individual action plan to implement in your daily life.
Following the workshop, please join us for a networking Happy Hour to extend the conversation!
