From creating a vision to influencing others, women leaders are expected to perform a big juggling act to deliver results.  Although organizations have come a long way in supporting women’s leadership development, an area that needs to be addressed is the correlation between holistic well-being and effective leadership. Utilizing a blend of personal stories, interactive discussion and best practices, you will learn how investing in your well-being can put you on track to becoming a stronger leader.

By the end of the workshop, you will:
Recognize the dimensions of holistic well-being and how they impact your leadership style and potential
Learn how other female leaders successfully put these dimensions into action in their careers and personal life
Create a well-being action plan to stronger leadership
