In today’s global business society, the ability to perform in complex economic and political environments is essential. We are driven to do more, have more and become more.
The Women’s Leadership Institute of Furman is designed to provide an engaging educational forum for executives and senior managers from diverse backgrounds and disciplines in corporations, law, governmental agencies, educational institutions, and non-profit organizations. Our goal is to work together to enhance vital leadership skills and form a collaborative, lasting network of relationships. An understanding of the complex dynamics involved in achieving true success as a leader requires insight into one’s personal leadership style and keen business acumen. The seminars offered during each session include a comprehensive view of concepts and strategies that have immediate and practical applications in real-world work environments.
We explore many interactive topics such as self awareness and EQ, negotiation and conflict resolution, communication skills, leadership styles, communication and difficult conversations, leading teams, and giving and receiving feedback.
Today’s research supports that as women ascend into leadership roles, key factors in workplace satisfaction and longevity include: the increased desire to engage in education, enhancing professional influence, honing critical thinking and decision-making abilities and applying high levels of emotional intelligence.
