ABOUT THE SEMINAR
(Based on the book “How Women Rise”)
Leadership expert Sally Helgesen and bestselling leadership coach Marshall Goldsmith have trained thousands of high achievers—men and women—to reach even greater heights. Again and again, they see that women face specific and different roadblocks from men as they advance in the workplace. In fact, the very habits that helped women early in their careers can hinder them as they move up. Simply put, what got you here won’t get you there . . . and you might not even realize your blind spots until it’s too late.

HOW WOMEN RISE
Break the 12 Habits Holding You Back from Your Next Raise, Promotion, or Job
Since the publication of his international bestseller What Got You Here Won’t Get You There, business guru Marshall Goldsmith has spoken to hundreds of thousands of people around the world, sharing his insights about the behaviors that are holding people back in their careers. But a few years ago, he realized that while a few of the habits he outlined in What Got You Here apply equally to both men and women, women face specific—and different—challenges as they seek to advance. So he partnered with his longtime colleague, leadership expert Sally Helgesen, to create HOW WOMEN RISE, an invaluable handbook for women trying to take the next step in their careers—whether that’s climbing the corporate ladder or striking out on their own as entrepreneurs. They realized that for women in particular, the very skills and habits that made them successful early on could actually be holding them back as they advance to the next stage of their working lives. Women especially struggle with habits like the ones mentioned below. Marshall & Sally will share their insights on how to break the habits that hold women back

Reluctance to Claim Your Achievements
When singled out for praise, women are more likely to deflect that praise to others than to accept compliments and own their wins.
Expecting Others to Spontaneously Notice and Reward Your Hard Work
Many women don’t directly ask for the promotion, assignment, or opportunity to advance.
Being exceptional in your current role is a great strategy for keeping the job you have—but a lousy tactic if your goal is to advance to the next level.
Building Rather Than Leveraging Relationships
Most great careers are built not just on talent or hard work, but on the mutual exchange of favors, something men are often more comfortable with than women.
Failing to Enlist Allies from Day One
Women who immediately start building connections (rather than thinking they have to get up to speed before diving in) put themselves in a much stronger position to succeed.
Putting Your Job Before Your Career
Many women spend so much time dealing with the work that’s on their plate now, they neglect to position themselves for their next move.
The Perfection Trap
Women are often so concerned about making a mistake that they lose the chance to make the kind of bold, visionary move that will get them noticed and promoted.
The Disease to Please
Trying to make everyone happy might feel good in the moment, but it undermines women’s ability to make clear decisions and can erode their leadership potential.
Many women are in the habit of acknowledging the existence of others by trying to make themselves physically smaller, taking a seat at the back of the room, or using language in a way that diminishes what they want to say. .
Many women find themselves tamping down their emotional register in a professional situation, or over-explaining themselves.
Women are more likely than men to turn regret inward, blaming themselves and dissecting their own mistakes.
Letting Your Radar Distract You
Many women get so caught up wondering what others are thinking (their boss, their colleagues, their clients) that they lose sight of what matters most.
Like the original What Got You Here, this seminar based on this new best-selling book will help women identify specific behaviors that keep them from realizing their full potential, no matter what stage they are at in their career. It will also help them identify why what worked for them in the past will not necessarily get them where they want to go in the future — and how to finally shed those behaviors so they can advance to the next level, whatever that may be
This program is not only for women aspiring to bigger leadership roles – its also for THEIR BOSSES, MANAGERS, MENTORS, COACHES AND COLLEAGUES.
Advance Praise for HOW WOMEN RISE
“Sally and Marshall give new meaning to the term ‘dream team.’ Together they have produced a masterpiece, an over-the-moon but magnificently down-to-earth leadership book for the ages.”
“A myth-busting ‘how-to’ for the next generation of women leaders, and those who want to see them succeed. These ideas will transform our workplaces, our careers, and our lives.”
“Women suffer from gender bias and when they rise further, also from the general difficulties of leadership. When women approach the top of organizations, they can also bring their own strengths that may unfairly be seen as weaknesses. Sally Helgesen’s expertise and Marshall Goldsmith’s wisdom bring these insights to light, so that women and men and can do better together at reaching their goals for us all to move forward. This is a powerful and timely book.”
“Women leaders will be driving forces in twenty-first-century organizations. Practically and persuasively, Sally Helgesen and Marshall Goldsmith map out how this can and must happen.”
“HOW WOMEN RISE is a great read for any woman who wants to identify self-defeating behaviors that are holding her back, gain insight into why she engages in those behaviors, and develop skills to confidently achieve her goals.”
