Over the last few decades, women have made important strides ascending the leadership ranks. However, as a whole, they are still promoted less frequently and earn less than their male counterparts. In fact, according to McKinsey, women still lag behind men at every level. Women executives can help close this gap by increasing focus on the specific problems women face in the workplace, and intentionally planning how to navigate those barriers throughout their careers.

In this course, learners will hear perspectives and gain critical insights from women executives who have persevered and have achieved significant levels of success. They will also learn communication tools, negotiation strategies, conflict resolution tactics, and gain valuable insight about their own working styles, including when and how to flex their strengths to become even more effective leaders. Finally, they’ll discuss common missteps women make at work and explore approaches to avoid them.
