Balanced Leadership for Women Module 4
This module will address the importance of building meaning for women in leadership roles. Meaning is a defining trait among leaders. Identifying what brings meaning involves both knowing your strengths and identifying your purpose in what you are doing. Part of identifying your purpose is naming your dreams, and once your purpose is identified alongside your strengths and meaning becomes clear, happiness naturally results. The happiness equation provides a strong base for effective leadership.
