WFF US
Lead Like a Woman
Part II

20 January 2022

WFF Asia & Europe
Lead Like a Woman
Part II

27 January 2022

This event is the much-anticipated follow-up to Julie Zuraw's Lead Like a Woman session in 2021. (You need not have attended that session to join this Part II event.)

There are some fundamental differences in how men and women tend to communicate, and this has a big impact on how we view and play the "power game," particularly in male-dominated environments.

So if you ever find yourself feeling “out of balance” at work (like you have been slighted or sidelined, and you don’t know why), or stymied by confrontation, or unsure how to get what you want, this may be why.

At this practice-filled session, we'll work together to solve a series of real-world challenges. You'll discover new language and approaches that you might not have considered before, and sharpen your ability to hear and see the power game that is played around you. You'll learn to speak the language, assert your authority, and get what you want.
