Balancing our changing expectations of power with society’s unconscious assumptions and perceptions of powerful women has become more complex. Determining how we step into our power in hierarchical organizations while maintaining (and being rewarded for) our skills of collaboration and relationship building is a crucial challenge. Cynthia Zeltwanger of the Women's Leadership Lab will explore the framework of Relational and Goal Oriented Power Dynamics and learn how to effectively integrate both for maximum impact.
