Topic: Coaching the Silenced Female Leader: Strategies and Insights for Both Men and Women

    Speaker: Carrie Arnold, PhD, PCC

     Agenda: 8 am-9 am - Continental Breakfast/9 am-12 noon - Workshop

  Carrie Arnold, PhD, PCC and acclaimed presenter at the 2017 ICF Converge Conference will be leading us in an exploration into the hot topic of “The Silenced Female Leader.”  Her research clearly demonstrates that:

“Silencing is an action verb, and feeling silenced can lead to an ontological shift.  When someone feels silenced, they feel muted, suppressed, or muffled.  The nature of their being can shift in that they show up as silenced in their leader interactions...The concept of silencing is significant for two primary reasons. Addressing this topic may inform why there is a lack of women in top leadership positions, as there may be more to this phenomenon than just gender inequality...The second reason this issue is significant is that it describes the essence of women who feel silenced.  This discovery provides an understanding of the lived experience that female leaders may relate to, which creates awareness for personal change.”

This workshop is for women and men so that we can each have a new understanding of how to support female leaders to reach and sustain their momentum. Furthermore, we become aware of how we could be unwittingly contributing to systems that may undermine and silence a female leader’s voice.  We will gain insight and practice into how to assist women to “develop their voice with confidence and influence to ensure their place in top leadership.”
