    Ninety minute small-group learning and networking events

Authentic Authority as Women Leaders

Date: Wednesday May 19, 2021 Time: 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm (BST) Price: Free

How to build the authority you need as a leader

Our authority is earned through the skilful use of our power, and we all have at least 5 sources of power, including our personal power. In my experience, many women leaders struggle with this. Because it is a challenge when as women we need to be both authoritative and approachable.

And becoming skilful around that can sometimes feel like we’re being fake and not authentic.

So how do we make it work? Join me at my 90-minute session and you’ll become much more confident about how to build your authority as a leader, as a woman – and do this authentically and with integrity.

You’ll better understand your sources of power. And you’ll have new tools and insights for gaining an understanding of how your authority is received. You’ll learn how to become more intentional in deploying your authority so you can make your best leadership impact.

This is an opportunity for great learning and great networking – I hope to see you there! Contact me for more info at penny@pennydevalk.com
