  • Understand the different leadership and communication styles between men and women, and how to use them to your advantage
  • The balance between being assertive and overcompensating
  • How do you develop a strong, recognizable personal brand?
  • How to communicate confidently and gain respect
  • What role should women play in combatting workplace sexual harassment?

  • How to motivate colleagues effectively, have difficult conversations and inspire success
