Women and Self-Leadership: Tapping Into Your EQ to Gain Clarity and Confidence

Recent research studies show that while we enter the workforce at the same rate as men, women aspiring to higher levels of leadership are steadily decreasing in numbers as they climb the leadership hill, falling off the ‘cliff’ at around the manager/senior manager level.

To change this alarming trend, women leaders need to stop looking at external factors and solutions and start examining your own internal barriers to success, starting with tapping into your innate Emotional Intelligence (EQ).

Raising Your Leader’s Voice: Building the Confidence to be Heard

Women are painfully aware of the uphill battles they face everyday: a lack of support or access to senior leaders, a lack of promotion opportunities, and incidents of sexual harassment continue to be prevalent. However, each of us can start to influence our own experience by focusing on our own need to be acknowledged and heard. We can start by focusing on ourselves: our awareness of what's important to us, including our strengths and our values...AND addressing our self-imposed limiting beliefs about who we are and the value we bring.

To change the results you're getting, you've got to shift your approach by shifting your mindset. This starts with developing your Emotional Intelligence, specifically your self-awareness. Your willingness to stand for yourself starts with knowing yourself.

Self-Awareness and Leadership:
The Critical Impact of Emotional Intelligence on You, Your Team and Your Results

Organizations invest in expensive leadership development programs, with the goal of positively impacting business results. Unfortunately, these programs are typically focused on developing skills that are tactical, like how to manage performance, delegate tasks or write a performance review. While these skills are important, these programs put little if any focus on how we show up and who we are as leaders...

To up-level your leadership effectiveness, consider how developing your Emotional Intelligence (EQ) can be an innovative approach to increasing personal and team effectiveness, improving employee engagement, and positively impacting overall business results.

"Camille recently provided an excellent learning program for our SCORE Ventura County mentors. She worked with me to learn about our organization and the learning needs of the audience. Camille also used feedback from our members to create customized discussion scenarios. The result was an engaging presentation and a highly interactive discussion of the scenarios by our team members.

After the presentation, she collected our group's responses to the scenarios, compiled the results, and developed a reference guide for use by the mentors while working with their clients. We were very satisfied with Camille’s work and I know other organizations will benefit from Camille’s learning programs as well."
