Module Descriptions

Module 1: Navigating the Political Landscape

Opting out is not an option; there is always a power dynamic regardless of who you are dealing with, inside or outside of the workplace. That is why understanding and having an increased awareness about power dynamics can help improve how you attain power and your ability to influence. In this workshop, we will look at what political capital is, and how participants can build it over time. The good news is – they have control over where they invest political capital and the ability to monitor where they stand with different individuals.

Module 2: Growing Your Network

Gone are the days of transactional business. People are naturally inclined to do business with people with whom they have relationships. That’s why improving your network will improve your professional life. In this workshop, participants will examine who is in their network, who they should seek to build relationships with, and who will help them develop the skills required to get them started. From small talk to big business, this module sets them up for success.

Module 3: Building Strategic Relationships

It’s important to surround yourself with advisors and champions, but where do you find them? You’ve heard of mentors and sponsors, but do you know the difference between them? Do you have both in your life, and if not, do you know how to secure them? Research says women are over mentored and under sponsored. This module will explain the benefits of both and will help participants identify what they need in each.

Module 4: Adapting to Change

The only constant in the world is change. We are all impacted by change nearly every day, which can either be negative or positive. How we are impacted depends on our ability to adapt to change. In this workshop, participants will learn how to support themselves and others through change so that they can grow and thrive as a result of the experience. We will walk through a change that participants are facing or have gone through, and they will learn strategies for managing it well.
