Attend the June 2020 Virtual Women’s Forum – Morning Session
Are you looking to lead in 2020? Join us on Thursday, June 4th from 8:30 – 10:00 AM for a virtual webinar featuring guest speaker Susan Morris, Professional Coach and Personal Growth Speaker at Susan Morris Coaching, as she delves into “Transformational Leadership: Why STEM Women Must Lead Now!”
This 90-minute presentation defines Transformational Leadership as when “leaders and followers help each other to advance to a higher level of morale and motivation” (Burns, 1978). Through transformational leaders, followers are able to be inspired to change their expectations, perceptions, and motivations in order to work together to accomplish common goals. Transformational leaders garner trust, respect, and admiration from their followers. These transformational leadership qualities describe women more than men. STEM women have the innate ability to form and nurture business partnerships, key to the life sciences marketplace. Thus, women in STEM must lead now. One of the most impactful exercises of this presentation is when participants share what it’s like to work for a transformational leader. Hearing from peers inspires those who want to lead transformationally. Participants leave with a transformational leadership skills self- assessment.
