Do You Want To Become a More Effective Leader?
We are partnering with many organizations to obtain leadership training opportunities for women. We’d like to partner with yours, too!
Membership organizations have long been a training ground for women leaders. By offering leadership training through your organization, we believe your board will:
- Provide value that appeals to younger members, who are building their careers
- Develop new leaders to support the goals of your organization
- Prepare a new generation of leaders to help advance equality in community, government and business
By completing the Leadership Interest Survey, women can ask for what they want — the first step towards becoming more effective leaders.
Why Women’s Leadership Training Matters
From where we sit, our families, communities and especially our women are still getting the short end of the stick. No one is going to fix this for us, so it’s up to women to step up and make changes. Studies have shown that having more women in leadership roles makes businesses much more profitable, and employees are happier and easier to recruit and retain. Yet although the doors to the C-Suite are open, too few women are walking through to take their fair and equal share of top positions.
Let’s change that! Research shows and we know from experience that women hang back because they don’t like the old oppressive model of “power over” so we need to help them embrace the expansive, inclusive “power to” that enables us to work together for positive change. Women can and will band together to support each other in advancement, to encourage each other to ask for raises and promotions, and to fight for fairness if their requests are denied.
About the Leadership Interest Survey Project
Most women do not have the benefit of a corporate professional development budget, yet our communities, businesses and nations need all women to step forward as leaders. That’s why we need women to ask for what they want: leadership training available through their membership organizations.
When women raise their voices strongly to ask for this training opportunity, we will seek national grants to make such training available to large numbers of women. With more than 20 Take The Lead Leadership Ambassadors ready to conduct training sessions across the country, we can make a big change in a hurry. Complete your 5-minute survey now and ask for the training that will help you become a more effective leader.
