What the Most Successful Women do Differently: Practical Advice for Rising Leaders


In this webinar, Emily Bennington will share the results of her research on women executives.

Thu, Jun 30 1:00 PM - Fri, Jul 1 6:00 AM EDT

Emily Bennington had a director-level position at a top 15 accounting firm, a nice office, a team of staffers…and a problem. She was too worried about being liked to be an effective leader at work. So she launched a survey with the goal of persuading more than 1,000 women executives to share their own experiences and to learn what the most accomplished women in their industries do right. In this webinar, Emily will share the results of her research including:

• What women really say about other women managers.

• The skill women say is most lacking in the workforce today.

• What women wish they could go back and tell their 20-year-old selves.

Emily will also analyze the different leadership styles of women, dive into what it takes to be assertive without being “aggressive,” and share advice from top executives on how to build cohesive relationships in a multi-generational workforce. A good fit for new grads just entering the workforce (and a good refresher for the rest of us!), participants will also learn the five core competencies of leadership, as well as which specific behaviors are contributing to (and perhaps undermining) your success in each.

Participants are encouraged to take the short New Girlz Club Executive Women Research Survey here in advance of the session.

Emily Bennington is the coauthor of Effective Immediately: How to Fit In, Stand Out, and Move Up at Your First Real Job. She is a frequent speaker on the topic of career success and the founder of Professional Studio 365, which provides onboarding seminars for new grads and their employers. Emily has been featured on Fox Business, CNN, and ABC, as well as quoted in publications including the Wall Street Journal, New York Post, US News and World Report and Washington Post Express.
