Gender & Leadership in the Workplace
February 23, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
You are invited to participate in KPMG’s Executive Leadership Lecture Series. This is the second of three sessions designed to equip participants with a deep understanding of the principals and practical skills that aim to allow them to achieve leadership excellence. The session is free to attend!
This course deals with the personal and interpersonal aspects of leadership and addresses how “gender intelligence” can improve exchanges at work. The session begins with an overview of women in Corporate America including a review of issues and challenges. Participants will then use an assessment instrument that evaluates their capacity in the four distinct dispositions of leadership and helps them apply each of the dispositions to appropriate workplace situations. Participants will explore the natural strengths women bring to the workplace; learn how to interact successfully with the natural strengths of men; and appreciate the benefits of understanding and integrating different leadership styles between the genders. Additional insights into the differences between management and leadership and how women and men relate to power, ego, communication, and change within the work environment will be examined. This course promises to provide the fundamentals for authentic and collaborative leadership in the workplace.
