11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Lunch will be provided

Too much on your plate. Underwater with to-dos? Have you ever wondered why others seem to get ahead while you’re busy keeping your nose to the grindstone? You may be operating under the old adage of with hard work comes great reward. Yet, based on the simple economic model of supply and demand, did you know that if you are too accessible, taking on too many priorities, and over producing, you most likely are driving down the value of your professional stock? You may be missing out on critical growth relationships and not aligned to the right relationships and strategies to lead, grow and advance yourself and your impact. Producing is not leading. Reassess your leadership mindset, gain insight into the production trap and seize control through self-awareness, clarity and boundary setting for yourself, your relationship with your boss and your organization. Not only will you step up your leadership impact, but you may also get time for your life back. While this topic is important to all emerging growth leaders – we will also address elements that are especially important for growing women leaders who get stalled in their career advancement.

Learn about what workplace behaviors will result in leadership growth, respect and rewards that will help you lead with impact and move forward professionally.

In this interactive session, you will:

  • Recognize where you are spending your time and where you should be spending it
  • The paradox of the production trap
  • View priorities from the three roles and leadership mindsets
  • Understand the Urgent/Important focus grid and how to reassess and tackle priorities in today’s VUCA landscape (volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous)
  • Recognize barriers you can control and influence
  • Learn and practice the art of the gracious no
