Mobilize Your Support Network | June 2020

Developing strong relationships is not only part of your job, it is the real work of leadership. People do not follow a title. They follow a person whom they trust, respect, and believe in. In this webinar, we’ll look at why trust is the foundation for influence, how to create a strategic networking plan, and five categories of people who make up a well-rounded network of collaborators and allies. We’ll address how to achieve all this while our workplaces are disrupted by COVID-19. (Panel)

Guest Speakers: Alice Katwan, SVP North America Sales at Salesforce and Sonar Thekdi, VP Operations at VMware.

  11. 11. Copyright Be Leaderly 2020Copyright Be Leaderly 2020 Data delights! One of the strongest traits shared by successful female leaders is connecting: “identifying who can help you grow, building stronger relationships, and increasing your sense of belonging.” 1 People with strong networks and good mentors enjoy more promotions, higher pay, and greater career satisfaction. 1 Having an inner circle of female contacts helps women overcome bias and other cultural hurdles to reach higher levels of leadership and compensation. 2 Dr. Christina Maslach, who studies work-related burnout, found that the best prevention comes from human connections, “a precious, precious resource.”
