    About the Program

    This program is about change, awareness of internal and external barriers and how to triumph above them. Women hold just 20 percent of seats in parliaments globally.
    Women became 50% of the college graduates in the early 1980s. A meager twenty-one of the Fortune 500 CEOs are women. Women hold about 14% of executive officer positions, 17 percent of board seats, and constitute 18 percent of our elected congressional officials. Girls are increasingly outperforming boys in the classroom, earning 57% of undergraduate degrees in the United States and girls graduate with higher GPAs.

    A Woman's Guide to Leadership is a hands-on seminar with how-to-steps for every business woman and, businesses looking to increase their diversity iniatives to include women, who want to conquer the communication nuances that can enhance her credibility, and make a greater impact on the job. Credibility and power are attribution variables; they are a perception in the eyes of the beholder. Women come to the workplace with a set of complex communication behaviors that create an undeniable challenge; women are often seen but not heard. The strategies presented go beyond common sense and will provide women with cutting-edge verbal and nonverbal techniques that can be applied directly with immediate success. This program will help business owners or executives build a case for enhancing their organization's diversity program through learning what the inclusion of women can mean for their businesses at all levels and how taking this steps will increase their profits.
