Lelia Gowland – Making Work Work For Women

3 Programs By This Presenter

Too often women are told we’re bad at negotiation. Lelia thinks that’s garbage. Research shows that the way women are socialized often makes us uniquely equipped to be successful negotiators by using skills such as empathy, listening, collaboration.

Rather than a cookie-cutter, one size fits all approach, participants will discover their own negotiation voices.


Participants will:

·      Explore the current landscape for women in the workplace

·      Develop a range of negotiation strategies that are effective for women, and help avoid gender bias

·      Build confidence and negotiation skills in a way that feels authentic

Sometimes things don’t go as planned. Your client wants something done yesterday, the colleague you relied on most just quit, or you spilled coffee on your favorite pants.  Maybe all of the above.


You can manage each aspect of your work and the “stuff” that will inevitably hit the fan, but how do you manage the stress that this causes in a sustainable way? Part strategy session, part group therapy, this session will help you develop strategies to bounce back quickly and avoid burnout.


Participants will:

·      Define burnout in their lives, identifying personal triggers and symptoms

·      Explore research on the psychology of happiness

·      Self-reflect and personalize strategies to manage stress and avoid burnout

Women who work get countless messages: “Be seen, but not strident,” “Lose the vocal fry,” “Don’t say ‘I’m sorry.’” It’s exhausting.


Instead of telling you how you’re getting executive presence all wrong, this session builds on the latest psychological research on self-compassion, which can help you become happier and less anxious. It turns out, being nicer to yourself can help you be more confident and successful.

The session concludes with actionable steps to improve executive presence in a nonjudgmental and entertaining format.


Participants will:

  • Improve self-compassion – a key tool for professional success
  • Develop strategies to bounce back more quickly after failure and to navigate challenging situations
  • Learn tools for improving executive presence
