The Smart Woman’s Guide to Making Great Management Decisions and Embracing Risk

Course Description:

Leadership is all about decision-making, and knowing when to take a risk. Yet, the playing field for women leaders is paved with gender hurdles -- and the perception that women are risk averse is one of the most cited reasons for their failure to attain the levels of leadership they deserve. 

This high-impact program explores the key barriers to confident decision-making, and how to create a strategic process for risk taking that will help you:

  1. Increase your visibility and credibility as a decision-maker,
  2. Assertively communicate your decisions, and
  3. Effectively demonstrate your authority in the decision-making process.


Course highlights:

This must-attend audio conference will show you how to be a more adaptive, collaborative and responsible manager, and explain how: 

  • Assumptions and fears affect your ability to know the difference between an opportunity and a risk,
  • Inaction often leads to failure, and
  • Emotions sink decision-making and risk taking efforts.


During this information-packed session, you’ll also learn critical skills to:

  • Get team support for your decisions
  • Manage the flood of information that surrounds every decision/risk
  • Gather the best intelligence to support your decisions
  • Weigh a risk through benefit analysis
  • Put a halt to all your harping about what ‘could’ go wrong
  • Start with small risks and work your way up to embrace risk as a business benefit
  • Develop an action plan to overcome indecision
  • Increase your decision-making confidence
  • Be more assertive when interacting with colleagues
