Learn through training catered to your career level.
Each quarter is designed to build out from a theme aligned with what our members tell us they need to learn more about. We start each quarter with a Leadership Luncheon (LL) keynote speaker. Then we dive deeper into the topic through 3 tiered Leadership Studies (LS). You pick your comfort level with the topic (beginning (LS1), middle (LS2), advanced (LS3). If you’re ready for something more intensive, discover one of our Leadership Tracks (LT) where you will be challenged with real-life leadership application.
As an institute, it is important that our model be driven by research. We conduct internal and external research and collect from regional and national resources to inform our program curriculum. All objectives point back to evidence-based best practices for cultivating female leaders who shape culture.
Each quarter begins with a luncheon that features community, business, civic, or political leaders presenting information related to business and leadership. Register through our calendar.
Leadership Luncheons will return in 2021 once we can safely gather.
Each quarter you will be able to engage at a deeper level with the content presented over the course of 3 months. Our Studies are designed to offer beginning, middle and advanced content around a given quarterly theme.
As you identify your level of expertise, our presenters are here to challenge you in LS 1, LS 2, or LS 3 courses. 12 per year. Check out our calendar for future Studies. Register for our upcoming Study below.
About the session
Positive Team Culture is collaborative, transparent, and strengths-focused. Ideally, teams are comprised of people with diverse identities and life experiences so that teams may benefit from broad perspectives and team processes. However, diversity within teams can be difficult to navigate when life ways and thought ways appear to be clashing. Effective leaders seek diverse group composition and take steps to maximize the benefits of diversity with inclusive practices.
