Women can’t have it all! Women can have it all! Can women have it all?
The real question is “What is ‘it all’?” One woman’s having it all is not necessarily the role model for all other women. Each woman needs to figure out her own center—her core—to determine what having it all means to her.
There is more to success than understanding corporate politics and learning the requisite skills to move up the leadership hierarchy. Yes, you do need to understand and develop those skills, but until you focus on yourself as a whole person, you won’t reach having your all. In today’s world of overscheduled, Everything-to-Everybody women, we need to get a grip and figure out for ourselves when we can say, “I’m enough.” Dr. Jane Goldner speaks from not only her own story but also the stories of fourteen other successful women. Learn the roadmap to successfully figuring out YOUR all so you can lead with purpose, passion and power. (This presentation is also available as a workshop.)
Studies over the years have pinpointed some critical skills that women need to master in order to effectively lead.

Learn about creating a personal and professional support system, effective delegation, developing mentors and sponsors, the importance of networking, and the indispensable skills of negotiation and constructive confrontation.

Many leadership development initiatives focus on leading self and leading others but not on the third level of effective leadership, leading at the strategic level. Dr. Jane Goldner’s presentation makes it easy to understand the 10 checkpoints that need to be aligned to successfully lead at the third level. It is based on her book, Driven to Success: A 10-Point Checkup for Achieving High Performance in Business. (This presentation is also available as a workshop.)
It is a myth that there are major differences between how women and men desire and navigate “work and life,” especially for Gen X and Millennial men. The key, however, is not work-life balance, which implies a 50/50 lifestyle. In fact, in today’s 24/7 digitally connected world, lean organizations, and tightly scheduled children, work-life balance is a fantasy. It sets up unrealistic expectations, and when those expectations aren’t met, our self-esteem and sense of adequacy are affected, not to mention job performance. What can individuals do to juggle all their multiple roles so that they can fulfill their wish to have a life outside of work? What can companies do to help these talented leaders better integrate their multiple roles? For individuals, role integration allows them to lead with purpose, passion and power. For companies, the solutions provide a competitive edge.

The Gen Xers think the Millennials are lazy and lack planning skills. Gen Xers don’t understand the need for “face time.” The Millennials don’t believe in planning and think the Boomers are “old school”. What is a leader to do to get full engagement?
