Women's Global Leadership Summit 2019

The power of dreams. The audacity of belief. And the courage to live it. Amazing things happen when these three come together. You tread places that no one has before. You hit a glass ceiling, but you keep going to break it.

When it starts looking like the toughest challenges seek you out, you find out ways to overpower them. The AICPA Women’s Global Leadership Summit brings together insights and lessons from the lives of those who are living the things that others dream of.

Identification: WOM19101

Operation Minutes : 75

**Additional fee**

Neuroscientists tell us our brain is a social organ. Before anything else. And the more we understand this highly sensitive operating system, the more likely we are to reach our biggest goals. This session addresses the highly unpopular finding that the more time we spend analyzing details, the harder it is to successfully engage and communicate with others. It’s quite the dilemma for many of us who are highly analytical but also want to achieve strategic goals, build relationships and successfully lead change. We just need to give the brain what it needs each day.

In this session you will discover the 6 core conditions that your brain, and everyone else’s, needs in order to operate at its best each day. You’ll then learn how to create a significant goal for yourself that is brain friendly, increasing your likelihood of achieving it. This compelling and practical learning experience dips into neuroscience to understand how our environment and daily interactions affect our brain, and what it needs to perform at its best and get the most out of those we interact with. We explore recent brain facts and useful communication approaches to transform how you move through each day. You will leave the session with a goal your brain loves, and a level of inspiration and focus to get the most out of the conference.

Learning Objectives:
  • Understand the impact our daily interactions have on our effectiveness and discover the effect that change and complexity has on our brain
  • Identify common stressors in your role and workplace environment and learn the 6 core conditions for optimum engagement and high performance
  • Develop simple ways to build better relationships
  • Understand how to set goals your brain loves and create one goal that primes your brain to achieve it

Whether we realize it or not, we are constantly both giving and receiving feedback. We know that feedback is essential to our personal development, but we so often dread and even dismiss it. Feedback can be ill timed, unfair and downright mean, but that doesn’t have to dictate our ability to use it for our own growth.

Learning Objectives:
  • Identify the three types of feedback and the degree to which you need each one
  • Recognize the barriers and blind spots that can get in the way of receiving feedback well
  • Create an action plan for getting the feedback you need and creating a feedback culture at your organization

Core Confidence

Nov 6, 2019 4:15pm ‐ Nov 6, 2019 5:30pm

Identification: WOM1905

Operation Minutes : 75

What is standing in the way of creating the career and life you’re aiming for? Research has found there’s a common thread for men and women as they move through their career, particularly as they head into their late twenties and beyond. Confidence impacts many aspects of our careers and lives including our ability to:

  • Negotiate a pay raise or more flexible work arrangements
  • Ask for a promotion or apply for a progression opportunity
  • Challenge a stakeholder or call out unacceptable behavior

But what is confidence? How does a lack of confidence play out in the workplace and what can you do to start to better understand your internal sources of confidence?

Research continually confirms that many young professionals blame confidence as the reason they are not achieving their goals in career and life and it's time to do something about it. This 75-minute session will explore both the external and internal dimensions of confidence and share strategies to proactively and sustainably connect with your core confidence to enhance performance both personally and professionally.

Learning Objectives:
  • Defined and explored their relationship with confidence
  • Understand where a lack of confidence may be holding them back
  • Identify strategies and tools to support them reconnect and commit to an ACT of confidence

Creating a Sustainable Work+Life Balance

Nov 6, 2019 4:15pm ‐ Nov 6, 2019 5:30pm

Identification: WOM1906

Operation Minutes : 75

As CPAs, Sarah and Lauren personally witnessed and experienced the harsh realities of burnout on the body, mind and heart. Burnout isn’t a one-off; it is interwoven in the tapestry of hard-working, 24/7, revenue-generating, passionate individuals and organizations that want to excel.

There’s a lot of chatter about the lack of women in leadership positions, and while boards are taking notice and implementing “band-aid solutions”, we’re still not addressing the root cause of the problem: sustaining positive mental health and well-being. Burnout ranks as the highest concern for companies when it comes to issues facing employees and we’re not trending towards a solution; we’re running towards the problem, especially for us CPAs. It’s time for an action plan that gets to the heart of the matter.

In this session, we’ll discuss how you can pursue a career filled with meaning and fulfillment. We’ll share successful stress management techniques and help you define clear next steps. You'll walk away from this session feeling inspired and ready to take back the reins of your life.

Learning Objectives:
  • Explore the impact of stress and burnout in the workplace.
  • Create tangible next steps to ignite immediate positive change in your well-being.
