<SOLD OUT> WIN Workshop: Redefining "Good Leadership" with Tove Kinooka

  • 23 May 2019 19:00 - 21:00

  • Embassy of Sweden, Club Room (Apartment Entrance)

What defines a “good leader”? For many years we have been conditioned to believe that the best leaders are charismatic, super-confident, alpha-male characters.

However, for many of us – and particularly for women, or naturally quieter people – this model is not a comfortable fit. We may avoid taking on (or are overlooked for) leadership positions, or we exhaust ourselves trying to appear more outgoing than we actually are.

In this interactive workshop we will explore how a different, quieter approach to leadership can also be extremely effective. Be prepared to dig deep and discover the value that the real, authentic you can bring as a leader!

- This event is for women only -
