Date & Time
10:00 am - 5:30 pm
Maria Sirois, Kelly Fredrickson & Catherine Flavin
Research with high-performing leaders who are also highly engaged mothers has clarified what works (thank God) to enable us to become effective and joyful (and yes we use that word deliberately) leaders at home and at work. During this day-long workshop, we will:
- Articulate what we know so far from the research (such as the impact of unconscious bias, unnecessary guilt, and the myths that martyr us)
- Tell a very different story about what it could mean to be a working mother
- Help you whittle away what definitely doesn’t work (hint: whatever sucks your joy and depletes your energy)
- Integrate positive psychology perspectives on what it means to be rampantly resilient
- Gather wisdom from you about what creates positive deviancy in your particular corner of the world
- Ignite your lineage and legacy
- Prepare you with tools, frameworks, and laughter to take back to the boardroom/laundry rooms (and maybe even the den) of your life
This workshop is for any of us who are LeaderMoms, who are becoming or work with LeaderMoms and those charged with those retaining and developing women leaders.
