Pathways, Potential, and Decisions for Women Leaders
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Leadership can be complex territory for women, especially in male-dominated cultures and fields. In this workshop, I'll invite participants to think about the pathways to two different kinds of leadership roles (positional and influential), and how to align action with intended impact when in both kinds of role.

In 2000, Liz founded Strategy Matters - a consulting firm supporting businesses, nonprofits, government, and public private partnerships to address pressing problems and create new solutions.  Previously, she was Deputy Director for Strategic Planning at the Boston Police Department, and in that role supported a citywide planning process that engaged over 400 residents and yielded great reductions in crime. She built relationships with businesses, philanthropists, and government to secure support for community partners working to prevent crime in Boston.  Liz holds a MA in Philosophy from the University of Washington and a BA in Philosophy and Politics from Mount Holyoke College.

The Person You Want to Meet is Already in Your Network
Limited Capacity filling up

Many of us think that we need to attend a networking event or make a cold call to meet the person that leads to our next job, our next business opportunity, or a professional mentoring relationship. However, even if we don’t know that person right now, we often already have someone in our network who does or who is only a few degrees removed from them. Instead of focusing on building bigger networks, come learn how to strengthen & activate your existing relationships to meet your next job or business goal. Find out how to start from where you want to be and create a map of people that will get you there. Stop networking and start connecting!
