Blakes Women in Leadership Webcast Series: Present, Intentional and Connected: Career Growth and Transitions in Times of Crisis

June 18, 2021 - 12:45 PM - 1:45 PM
What’s the best time to take a risk and pursue a stretch opportunity or consider a career shift? For most of us, a time of massive uncertainty would not be the answer. And yet, that may in fact be the ideal time to take stock and take action.

Disruptions push us outside our comfort zone, driving us to reflect on our vision for our work and our lives. We find ourselves asking such questions as: What more could I be doing to derive meaning and purpose from my days? Does my present role align with what I most want to contribute? Is there a way I could better invest in growth opportunities that excite me? And how might I add more value to my organization during this time of crisis?

In this interactive three-part webinar series, our conversation with women's leadership coach and author Sally Helgesen continues with an exploration of the non-linear and often messy process of growing and transitioning our careers in a time of uncertainty and upheaval and the habits women must overcome that can get in their way. Through interactive exercises and live coaching moments, Sally will share actionable practices and “learn-by-doing” strategies women can use to rethink and reframe their careers.

Presented by
Sally Helgesen, Women's Leadership Coach, speaker and author of several books on women's leadership, including her most recent book co-authored with Marshall Goldsmith, How Women Rise.
