  • Determining your own personal values is a fundamental to professional success; a fun and interactive exercise helps participants do this for themselves.
  • Visualization is a big part of goal setting; all great leaders take time to visual what success looks like for them and we will take you through a visualization process to see what it looks like for you.
  • Make the visualization concrete is the next step by creating a Vision Board; this is a fun and meaningful process.
  • Finally, after determining our own strengths, direction and development path; what else can we do to make it a reality? What skills do we need to acquire?  Are there any traditional male skills that we as women can leverage?
