This workshop will look at research around perception of female CEOs and organizational directors, and discuss the implications of the perceptions that may occur. Armed with that information, we will explore how to work the room for effectiveness. Don’t just introduce yourself; introduce your brand! Register here.
Chasing Your C-Suite Seat
Karen van Bergen and Barri Rafferty – November 2017 in New York
Strategic networking, executive coaches and women who inspire
The path to the C-suite isn’t easy, especially for women, even though a recent Korn Ferry study showed that women possess more of the specific competencies organizations will require to be successful in a very different business future. What does it take to reach the C-suite today? When managing your career, how do you prepare to move up? What executive traits and skillsets should you develop? What kind of relationships should you foster along the way? This panel discussion and practical workshop will help you define your goals, identify traits needed for success, and inspire you to boldly chase your C-suite seat. Register here.
