Unleash Your Leadership Potential

Unconscious bias toward others is often a silent killer of women’s leadership success and continues to be one of the dominant drivers holding women back in their careers. However, the unconscious biases women have about themselves are another invisible threat that needs to be overcome. Research has found the biases women commonly adhere to in career-making decisions typically fall into one of three basic assumptions: do it all, look good and be nice. These impact women’s career trajectory and their employer’s ability to retain and promote women in the workforce. This workshop focuses on helping women recognize and overcome these assumptions so they can unleash their leadership potential. Jodi Detjen of Orange Grove Consulting will educate you on the common unconscious biases many women have about themselves; how to recognize and reframe assumptions that might be holding them back; and how to reframe their self-limiting behaviors to propel their career forward.
