Succeeding on Stage® is specifically designed for women leaders. This program deals with the subtler dynamics of corporate life: the unspoken realities that guide decision-making and determine who advances. Women in this seminar will learn to deal with the most challenging and important situations that shape one’s career: (1) speaking upward; (2) succeeding in career conversations, (3) showing political acumen; (4) building senior level networks, and (5) overcoming the male-female cultural divide. Succeeding on Stage® builds on the skills developed during Taking the Stage®. Taking the Stage is highly recommended pre-requisite for this course.
