Making a Difference
The Power of Personal Brand
Presented by Lynnette Ward
What do people think about you when you are not in the room? Influential individuals realize they represent themselves as a brand, know how they want to be perceived, and realize they make a difference by building trust in their brand. The power of your personal brand can influence the future of an organization and guide a successful career. Or not.
How we communicate and choose to connect along with taking ownership and delivering results; all can drive trust and confidence in your brand and your ability to influence others. Examine how formal and informal leaders can discover their strengths through personal branding. Using a 3-part model you will learn about what makes a successful brand and how you can make a difference.

What The Data Says About Women In Management Between 1980 and 2010
According to a recent article in the Harvard Business Review, advancement toward gender equality has slowed since the 1990s for three major reasons: people's attitudes stopped becoming more gender egalitarian, occupations stopped gender integrating, and the gender wage gap began decreasing at slower rates. There have been dozens of studies showing how the progress in gender equality experienced during and immediately after the feminist movement of the 1970s has not been sustained through the 1990s and 2000s.
Does this stalled revolution play out in management positions too? And if so, how? Join your fellow colleagues as we explore, discuss, and share our perspectives and experiences.
Manage Your Energy, Not Your Time
Most of us respond to rising demands in the workplace by putting in longer hours, which inevitably take a toll on us physically, mentally, and emotionally. This leads to declining levels of engagement, increasing levels of distraction, and high turnover rates.
What can we do differently? Join your fellow colleagues as we explore, discuss, and learn together. Our discussion will be inspired by a recent article from The Harvard Business Review.
Self-Awareness: The Ladder to Leadership Success
Recent research published in the Harvard Business Review indicates that only 10-15% of people are truly self-aware. Without self-awareness, ongoing introspection, and social insight, we miss key opportunities for improvement (both in terms of closing performance gaps and capitalizing on our strengths).
Join your fellow colleagues as we discuss how individuals can enhance their self-awareness and how organizations can enable their people in this area. Our discussion will be inspired by a recent article from Chief Learning Officer Magazine.
Training's Role In Preventing Sexual Harassment
The rising tide of allegations and the #MeToo campaign point to the need for better workplace discussion and a culture where victims feel they can come forward. What is the role of training in preventing sexual harassment? What impact do current organizational training efforts have in preventing sexual harassment in the workplace? What can organizations do differently to increase the effectiveness of their efforts?
Join your fellow colleagues as we explore and discuss this hot topic. Our discussion will be inspired by a recent article from Chief Learning Officer Magazine.
