Join Nancy Chorpenning, CEO of C-Suite Advisors in learning why “Leadership” is one of the TOP subjects our members claim to join NAWBO to learn.

1) What IS leadership?
2) What is it in business?
3) How does it look for women in particular?

My study of leadership, and +30 years’ experience in business, has uncovered some unique traits for women related to leadership that are less important or pertinent to our male counterparts.
My presentation will DEFINE leadership, DESCRIBE how it manifests in business settings, DIFFERENCES for women to be aware of, and how to DEVELOP leadership skills and abilities.
