Harnessing Your Strengths to Become a Successful Female CEO (DC Idea Swap) - SOLD OUT

When:  Mar 29, 2019 from 12:00 to 13:00 (ET)

***This program has reached room capacity and is sold out.***

A 2017 Korn Ferry study found that successful women CEOs often possess specific traits. Traits such as courage, risk-taking, resilience, the ability to manage ambiguity, contributing to community, confidence, and harnessing the power of others were qualities the study found were important for women to rise to be successful female CEOs.

Join Carol Vernon, founder and principal, Communication Matters: Executive Coaching & Training, on Friday, March 29, to learn more about how to identify and leverage your natural strengths to rise to the top of the association leadership ladder. Carol will explore these factors and more in this one-hour lunch and learn. Women attendees will learn more about how to forge their own successful path; and men will learn more about how to manage and mentor women association executives.

NEW LOCATION: We are in a new space at SmithBucklin, 2025 M. St. NW. Our thanks to SmithBucklin for hosting the DC Idea Swap.
