Overview/Description
While women are a very much a minority at the highest levels of leadership, more women hold leadership positions now than ever before in our history. The traits that are typically associated with leadership - assertiveness, trustworthiness, intelligence - are just as common in women as they are in men. What are the obstacles that women face on their path to leadership? This course will examine the issues facing women leaders and you'll learn about how to change your personal views to help overcome these issues, including why gender still matters. You'll also learn how to develop competence, confidence, and a personal brand.
