Women Leading with Impact: Resilience and Strategic Risk-Taking

Develop the skills and mindset to transform challenges into growth opportunities

Why do some women thrive professionally while others are passed over for career advancement opportunities? The answer is often a lack of resilience and resistance to taking risks—due to a variety of factors. For women, it is especially important to develop greater “bounce back” skills and gain more comfort with strategic risk-taking. Fortunately, the ability to transform challenges into growth and to leverage leadership skills to one’s best advantage can be learned. This course gives you powerful, practical techniques to reframe uncertainty, welcome healthy conflict, adapt to tough challenges and move out of your comfort zone to embrace new pathways to advancement.

  • Susan Chin Snelgrove, The Regional Municipality of York Oct 21, 2022

    Excellent course. I had already know a lot of the concepts but was stuck in not being able to transition into them into practice. It really made me think and the discussion helped with actually how to do it. What words to use? The other courses were based on the what and really appreciated the how.

  • Tripti Roy, CIBC Oct 21, 2022

    Loved the fact that it was not a class where the instructor does all the talking. It was a very interactive session and I learnt a lot via all the exercises and the breakout sessions we had.

  • Stephanie Duggan, BridgeGreen Capital Inc Jun 20, 2022

    Joanne was an excellent instructor and kept the class very engaging. The course content, participant guide, and exercises were beyond my expectations and I couldn't have asked for a better 2 days of learning and personal/professional growth. I feel inspired

  • Lisa Ledwick, H.C. Starck Canada Inc Feb 18, 2022

    Enjoyed the course, found it useful and helpful. I did find it hard though to be on camera for 8 hours. it is much more draining being on camera for 8 hours then it is to attend in person. Everyone can see you at all times. I would suggest a few 'camera'
