When Women Win: Leadership Strategies that Foster a World of Gritty Women

Can you relate to the “shecession” we hear so much about in the news lately? Women leaders are busier than ever meeting everyone else’s expectations and juggling multiple roles in their lives. And, disappointedly, their professional and personal goals have gotten left behind according to global experts on gender equality. Also, new research finds many of the leadership strategies that have been practiced for decades don’t actually work as well for women as they do for most men. Women must learn the right tools and knowledge so they can be effective and inspirational, and maximize the chances that they will be rewarded for their success. 

In one of her most popular presentations, Caroline Adams Miller, MAPP inspires women leaders to become their most authentic, ideal selves – not just who they feel they “ought” to be – and provides proven techniques to help them flourish and cultivate the passion, persistence, humility, and courage to achieve their toughest goals at home and work as the leaders they are meant to be.

In this session, female leaders learn to flourish in and out of the office, including how to:

  • Identify and use their character strengths in positive ways to accomplish goals, thrive, and support others in doing the same
  • Create resilience and authentic grit – or “good grit” – while avoiding the three types of “bad grit” that can destroy the office culture
  • Add a “believe and achieve” mindset to women’s “tend and befriend” behavior so that women can learn to exult in each other’s successes and amplify each other’s ideas and efforts
  • Use the new science-based approach and BRIDGE methodology to set the right goals for themselves, their organizations and their teams for optimal outcomes
  • Cultivate a team of positive energizers, including men, who support women’s leadership and unique contributions to the workplace
  • Understand why “ampliship” is the most important addition to common practices of mentorship and sponsorship because of its ability to reduce stereotype threat and add positive behavioral accountability 
  • Form a mastermind group of givers who foster conditions of psychological safety, exploratory risk-taking and positive social identity 

FORMAT: 45 – 60 minute keynote. Half and full day workshops are available, as well.

IDEAL AUDIENCE: Women’s meetings, conferences and forums. This program has been presented to women at: Brookings Executive Education, American Bar Association, U.S. Coast Guard, Impact Austin, Women@Google, Morgan Stanley, Ellevate/IFC World Bank, Harvard Law School, and more.

When I heard Caroline speak at our 15th Anniversary event, her message challenged me to rededicate myself to finishing my memoir that I had started seven years earlier. She helped me see that I didn’t have to have all the right words in order to start again. I just had to dig deep and believe that my story was worth telling. And, that’s what I believe today. I can now add ‘author’ to my resume because her message helped me believe in myself.
