MGMT 490A – Spring 2013 – M W 3:30-5:20 Women in Leadership

What do the fabulous females above have in common?  They are remarkable leaders and role models in business and the world like Pepsi CEO Indra Nooyi, top left.  All have had to address questions of life purpose, leadership style, family priorities, work-life balance, finding their passion, taking the right risks and building confidence on their road to success.   

We will use their lives and the experiences of local guest speakers to find personal answers to the same questions, enhance skills and create a personal vision.  We will:
·         Interact with at least seven local women in leadership positions.*  
·         Apply a leadership framework that has helped women around the world succeed
·         Create a personal vision board to picture your ideal career and life
·         Examine different ideas of work-life balance
·         Practice your authentic leadership style
·         Translate your strengths, values, dreams and goals into a life and career worthy of you
