Detailed Agenda

subject to change without notice
9:00 am: Registration, Refreshments, Peer Networking.

9:30 am: Characteristics of Highly Successful Women.
Assertiveness, Enegry, Optimism, Empathy and Resilience are just a few of the characteristics successful women have in common. Join this presentation to learn and develop these personality traits to become an effective leader.

10:00 am: Panel: Building Your Value.
into a showcase that will help you transition into a stronger leadership position. This topic will help you look closer at yourself and start building a foundation around your value and contributions that impact your organization.

10:45 am: Networking: Achieving Work-Life Balance.
Achieving a strong career and a fulfilling personal life can be challenging. You may think that only one can be truly achieved, however you can have both, and you should. We have all been told at some point that healthier, happier people make for better managers, leaders, and employees. Join us for actionable steps to achieving balance between your demanding job and those moments of your personal life that shouldnt be missed.

11:00 am: Change what you're looking for.
The traditional view of “how to succeed” in work and life looks like a ladder climb or karate-belt progression – where hard work, persistence, and a measure of good luck leads to stepwise accomplishment and rewards. But real life is more of an obstacle course, as full of frustrations and heartbreaks as it is of golden moments. If we measure success by proud outcomes and Instagram posts, we miss the joy of the journey itself. By looking inside ourselves and others, and seeing the good in we can choose happiness – even on days marred by sadness and unfairness. Practicing gratitude is much more than a mantra. There are strategic choices we can make in our lives and careers that will fundamentally change us for the better -- and those around us. Examples and personal anecdotes will be shared about five strategic choices – what to lose vs. what to choose.

11:30 am: Sit-down lunch and informal networking.

12:45 pm: Handling Difficult Conversations with Confidence.
Is there a difficult conversation that keeps you awake at night? Learn a scripting technique to clearly communicate an issue and its impact, propose a solution, and inspire positive outcomes for a joint resolution. Explore techniques to diffuse anger in others and create safety in these conversations. You’ll improve teamwork and productivity by dealing appropriately with important issues and conflicts.

1:20 pm: Creating and Nurturing a Culture of Diversity.
Forbes said it best, "By creating an inclusive workplace you ensure that everyone is given the best opportunity to succeed. And in so doing, you will create a highly diverse company in which employees are happier, more productive and more loyal" According to the New York Times: “There are less women as chief executives of Fortune 500 companies than there are men named ‘James’ as CEOs. Diversity and inclusion are complicated topics that often need more than just a few guidelines to follow, to be truly diverse and inclusive, daily actions, mindsets and company culture.

2:00 pm: How to Reach Your Leadership Potential.
Discuss how being in charge differs from contribution, what skills achieve results through team members and how interpersonal issues and disagreements can jeopardize projects, departments and teams. Look at ways to deal with conflict and and solve problems quickly.

2:30 pm: Networking: Mentor Matching.
Mentors can provide skill development, goal setting, problem solving, access to opportunities and valuable feedback to help you achieve professional and personal goals. Join this session to learn more about the ways you can be or find a mentor in your current organization or by using local groups, online and professional networks.

3:00 pm: Panel: Reviving/FastTracking Your Career.
this session will look at what you can do to avoid or overcome a plateau, revive your career, and finding ways to follow your passion. What are some best practices for transitioning back into the workplace? How can you maintain a record of professional development, despite being on “break?” How can you “catch up” to be more competitive in your career of choice?

4:00 pm: Conclusion.
This concludes our speaker sessions, but we encourage to you network and discuss the days topic and reach out to any of our vendors and/or speakers for any additional information. Thank you for your time and participation in our event
