Early Career Survival Strategies – Virtual

June 2 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Now more than ever, women are stepping forward to lead. And, post the Me Too movement, there is an increasing demand for these women to feel safe, whole, and empowered at work. When they do, they are bringing new skills, new ideas and new insights to bare on industry-wide problems that are chancing the landscape of innovation.

Unfortunately, both companies and leaders themselves are still grappling with the leadership cliff: the tendency for women to get stuck in mid-level leadership roles, failing to advance to the executive level. What’s more, women who do reach the executive level report less job satisfaction than their male counterparts on average.

Why is this challenge so hard to solve? It turns out that most company-wide trainings that aim to advance female leaders are still focused on just two of three critical domains: ending unconscious bias and building workplace skills. The third area, leadership embodiment, remains poorly understood – and relatively untouched. Taking a page from the book of cognitive neuroscience and trauma healing research, the leadership embodiment approach acknowledges that a legacy of patriarchal programming still lives in the psyches of women in the workplace.

Having been forced to navigate environments that weren’t consistently conducive to their safety, dignity, or true belonging, many women have left parts of themselves behind, and developed unconscious physical, mental and emotional survival strategies, in order to get ahead in the workplace. This is especially true in traditionally male-dominated industries like science, technology, finance. While it works in the short run, this unconscious decision leads to deeply embedded, counterproductive behaviors that are hard to see and even harder to change. The result? Burnout, confusion, plateaus, and frustration.

In this webinar, LeeAnn Mallorie brings over 15 years of experience coaching innovative female leaders at all levels across a wide array of industries to explore the question: how can I recognize and step out of these strategies myself – and coach the women on my team to do the same?
