Based on Valerie's Best Selling Book, Monday Morning Leadership
Monday Morning Leadership for Women is a program specifically aimed at addressing the challenges and obstacles that are unique to women as they climb the management ladder.
Powerful, transformation and life changing, this program can be adapted to echo your corporate culture and objectives - but is also run twice a year for private cohorts.
Junior and middle management are notoriously the most stressful positions within any corporate culture! The manager carries a lot of responsibility, juggles immense accountabilities and deliverables - but very often doesn't have the authority to be able to insist that the job gets done on time.
In Managing Sideways, we address the forgotten art of Influence without Authority - how to get yur teams to work together, to collaborate with one another, and to get the job done on time.
It's truly an essential program that all junior and mid level management need to be on!
The constant pressure to be productive, efficient, and available to your family AND to your career can take a toll on your physical, emotional, and mental health, leaving you feeling stressed, anxious, and burnt out.
Having accountability without authority can be really a tough place to navigate. In this program, we are going to learn how to communicate effectively with your superiors, colleagues, stake-holders and direct reports, so that you can set clear goals and expectations, and develop a plan of action that will enable you to succeed in your career - and how to create that critical work life balance at the same time!
Infuencing without authority is the ability to influence others to get stuff done, without having any power over them and it is a vital skill for any leader! Whether you are a team lead, the manager of a cross-functional team, founding a startup, or overseeing projects and resources, the ability to influence without authority can help you get buy-in from key stakeholders, improve collaboration within your organization, and boost your career.
Many working career women often face the difficulty of managing others without having any real authority.
They have accountability with authority, tasked with leading a project or team without the formal power or resources to do so effectively. This can be a daunting task that requires strong communication, collaboration, and leadership skills.
