Women in Leadership: Mastering Key Leadership Competencies
All leaders need to possess certain competencies that help them to be good leaders. Women leaders still face challenges in the workplace, when it comes to being viewed as equally competent to men. By developing key leadership competencies, women can make the best use of both the traditionally feminine qualities as well as those that are traditionally seen as masculine. In this course, you will learn how to build confidence through competence, develop your leadership presence, communicate like a leader, demonstrate your emotional intelligence, and network and connect with other women leaders.
