White Haven, Pa.; December 19, 2011 There is a huge demand for women’s leadership programs that go beyond motivational seminars to the heart of how women can be change agents in today’s competitive work setting.
The GUTSY WOMEN WEEKEND RETREAT offers answers to start the New Year with new perspectives. It will roll out in 8 U.S. cities in 2012, including San Diego, San Francisco, Las Vegas, and Manhattan hosted by women leaders and facilitated by Sylvia Lafair PhD, President of Creative Energy Options (CEOinc).
The primary focus of the program encourages women in business to TARGET and TRANSFORM ingrained workplace behavior patterns to increase success.
Stress, time constraints, and the constant struggle for work-life balance often leave women overwhelmed and frustrated. Recognizing these challenges for female managers, entrepreneurs, and solopreneurs, Dr. Lafair began to study the different ways women leaders respond and communicate.
“You should invest in this program because it will give you new insights” said Jennifer Gottschling, from Boston. “I did and it helped me observe my pattern of being a pleaser, one that I was quickly able to transform to be a truth-teller. When I returned to the office, there was a major difference in how I put some boundaries around my workload and surprisingly found everyone on my team began to work together differently. It was more than I ever thought possible.”
GUTSY women learn that self-care is NOT selfish-care; being self-aware is a must; and being pattern-aware is the NEWEST and EDGIEST way to become “conflict competent” in relationships both at work and at home.
Sylvia Lafair PhD, award winning author, business leadership expert, and executive coach created this inspiring program based on her newest book “GUTSY: How Women Leaders Make Change” to be released January, 2012. The Friday evening through Sunday noon retreat has now been requested around the country. The next event will be held at The Country Place Retreat and Conference Center, in Pennsylvania, February 3 – 5, 2012.
“I believe this is a major breakthrough era for women leaders and I am dedicating most of my time to offer the powerful tools and tips I have gathered together for all working women.” With her usual GUTSY GUSTO she added, “The knowledge is here to observe, understand, and transform behaviors that till now have kept us locked in wasteful conflict and various versions of “the gotcha game”. The time for all women to be heard more effectively is NOW.”
Attendees at the highly successful event describe the week-end as “amazing, empowering, and energizing”. Each attendee leaves with a GUTSY Action Plan for making a difference in their own lives and paying it forward to others.
“GUTSY hits the spot. It’s what every business woman, actually every woman needs now. In one weekend I was able to rethink, reclaim, and reinvent my priorities for work and home. In just ONE weekend! Get your gear together and get to GUTSY. You will thank Sylvia and her team forever and ever”. Joanne LaMarca, TV Producer, New York.
