Blakes Women in Leadership Series: Achieving Your Career Goals – How to Be a Long-Term Thinker in a Short-Term World

November 30, 2023 - 12:30 PM - 1:45 PM
If we’re going to make smart choices about how to spend our time and energy, we need to give ourselves some white space.
Dorie Clark

For many women executives today, being constantly pulled in too many different directions is a common experience. Finding time for long-term career planning can be enormously challenging, if not impossible, and is often sacrificed for the here and the now.

In this webinar, Dorie Clark, a leading communication coach, consultant and bestselling author of The Long Game, will help you create the whitespace needed to engage in long-term thinking. With actionable strategies, Dorie will help you balance competing short- and long-term priorities, elevate your strategic planning and achieve big-picture professional goals that will pay career dividends at every stage of your life.

In this session, you will learn how to:

  • Create white space in your schedule
  • Understand what you’re optimizing for
  • Guard your priorities and convey them to others — without creating friction
  • Make the right kind of trade-offs
  • Achieve strategic patience
  • Place little bets to find promising leads and emergent opportunities
