Inver Grove Heights, Minn. (PRWEB) March 2, 2010
Self-awareness – which Harvard Business Review recently called the key trait of great leaders – is the goal of an upcoming high-energy, leadership-focused virtual conference for professional women from March 22-26, 2010.
The Women at the Top™ Virtual Leadership Development Conference: Amplify Your Success kicks off March 22 as a complimentary weeklong program open to the public. Twenty-five experts in five core leadership development areas will lead sessions from noon to 1:30 p.m. CST each day.
The virtual conference – offered free of charge via telephone – is sponsored by the Women at the Top™ Network, a new community of women whose career goals include helping others succeed.

“Our vision is a woman in every boardroom,” said Regina Barr, founder of the Women at the Top™ Network and CEO of Red Ladder, Inc. “The way to accomplish that goal is to work individually on developing leadership skills and to work collectively at making sure women have access to the right people, projects and positions.”
Expert speakers will focus on five leadership areas. They are:
- Interpersonal skills;
- Personal accountability;
- Influencing others; and
- Goal achievement.
By focusing on these areas, women can examine their own strengths and weaknesses and develop a personalized plan for overcoming limitations, Barr explained. The sessions are designed for women at any level who aspire to become leaders within their field or organization.
