It can take a lot of time and practice for someone to become an effective leader. Additionally, women in leadership roles often face workplace discrimination and unconscious biases from colleagues or even their organization’s culture, making it even more challenging to succeed as a leader.

Increasing numbers of women are obtaining leadership roles, in the for-profit world but particularly in associations. It’s a great start, but society still has a long way to go to achieve equity for women in management, and there are aspects of leadership that many women still struggle with.

This four-part seminar series will cover a number of essential leadership skills that are targeted to either help association women move into leadership roles or to help women already in leadership roles have greater impact, broader influence, and thrive. This series is specifically designed to support and cultivate high-performing, high-potential women executives from the association community.

Registration for this online seminar series will close Tuesday December 7 2021, at 2:00 p.m. ET.

      Successful Partnerships for Successful Leadership

      Cultivating a strong, healthy, productive partnerships utilizing the authentic leadership and emotional intelligence takes intention and dedication. Authenticity is key. You can’t fake your way through good partnerships. In this session, you’ll learn how to utilize your own authenticity to build and sustain critical partnerships to enhance the success of your own position, and that of your organization. Productive partnerships between the Board and the CEO is a major factor in an organization’s success, no matter what the measure of success is. By nature of the nonprofit’s structure, these two roles are interdependent and cannot function independently. Creating an effective and dynamic leadership team is also critical, for similar reasons. No CEO can know everything and be everything to everyone, so you must have a strong leadership team that is an extension of you and the Board.Learn how to create effective partnerships with these two critical stakeholders to facilitate your own success and for the organization’s success.

      Impactful Leadership Through Storytelling

      One of the biggest challenges women in leadership face is cultivating an effective mindset as they navigate unconscious bias, harassment, and discrimination. Executive presence means the ability to demonstrate confidence in the face of uncertainty. This is where storytelling comes in. Storytelling is about building connections. Telling an effective story requires you to think deeply about your intended audience. Studies reveal that if you share a persuasive story, the audience is more likely to be persuaded. Persuasive storytelling is designed to take the listener on a journey, moving them from one perspective to another. In this way, story is a powerful tool for engendering confidence in you and your vision. Harnessing the power of story will enable you to be more persuasive, move people to action, and compel a productive environment.

      Dawn Herscher

      One of the biggest challenges that women in leadership face is cultivating an effective mindset as they navigate unconscious bias, harassment, and discrimination. Executive presence means the ability to demonstrate confidence in the face of uncertainty. This is where storytelling comes in. Women tend to be less comfortable with self-promotion-and more likely criticized when they grab the spotlight. Storytelling is about building connections. Telling an effective story requires you to think deeply about your intended audience. If your story reminds your listener of a similar experience, you will form an authentic connection that will enhance relatability and accentuate your achievements. Stories are remembered up to 22 times more than facts alone. When people think of advocating for their ideas, they think of convincing arguments based on data, facts, and figures. However, studies show that if you share a story, people are often more likely to be persuaded. And when data and story are used together, audiences are moved both intellectually and emotionally. When telling a story, you take the listener on a journey, moving them from one perspective to another. In this way, story is a powerful tool for engendering confidence in you and your vision, as well as a tool to persuade. The StoryForm approach is a formula-based model that is designed to maximize your digital presence as a storyteller. This technique is a strategy that will teach you how to choose the right stories, which characters to illuminate, and how to make the story relatable to the audience. Whether you are speaking in person, or using social media to promote, research proves that storytelling has a chemical effect on the brain and motivates cooperative behavior. You will learn the elements of successful stories and how to engage your audience through the art of storytelling. Harnessing the power of story will enable you to be more persuasive, move people to action, and compel a productive environment.
