What you will learn:
Research shows that women are almost twice as likely to suffer from anxiety as men. And when faced with life stressors, women are more likely to ruminate about them rather than engage in active, problem-focused coping strategies.
Why do women leaders struggle more?
Because, in the face of an “always on” work culture, their work-life balance takes a backseat, whether that’s raising children or caring for aging parents. They also cite the stresses associated with working for global companies, including being expected to respond to work emails around the clock. They struggle to make time to focus on eating healthy, exercise, and seeking medical and mental health care. Furthermore, women leaders are concerned that requests for flexibility will negatively impact their reputations, promotability, and career growth – regardless of whether their manager is a man or a woman.
In this session, women will learn to challenge the sense of failure they may feel in not being able to meet expectations for themselves and others, as well as develop new mindsets and strategies for setting boundaries, preventing burnout, and taking care of their needs with a sense of pride.
