Own Your Mistakes & Move On: Resilient Leadership

April 9 @ 6:45 pm - 7:45 pm EDT

When things go wrong, we are often our worst enemies. Self-criticism, self-doubt, self-blame, and shame can get in the way of recovering from mistakes, failures, and shortfalls. How do we manage these difficult emotions and motivate ourselves to learn and keep moving forward?

Scientific studies have shown that being kind to ourselves, or self-compassion, not only keeps us motivated after a setback, but also builds sustainable self-confidence. Everyone can learn and develop self-compassion!

Sounds weird, but in this interactive session, you will:

  • Be among other successful people who’ve made mistakes and learned to move on!
  • Learn what self-compassion is and why it is more effective than self-esteem
  • Practice applying self-compassion to manage self-doubt, anxiety, or feeling unmotivated after a setback or failure
  • Leave with tools to motivate yourself like a good coach with encouragement, kindness, and respect

Virtual Venture Café: Having Difficult Conversations

Thursday, March 26, 2020 @ 6 pm EDT

As we're adapting to new ways of working and responding to constant change and persistent uncertainty, we cannot avoid having difficult conversations any longer. There are intelligent strategies and tools we can use skillfully to navigate the undercurrents of what matters to us, and to the people around us.

Bring a real, specific conversation that you know you need to have. In this session, we will have a chance to “workshop” how we would like to have those difficult conversations by:

  • Seeing the hidden dimension of difficult conversations and what’s really at stake
  • Preparing for a high-stakes conversation as the first step to support the rest
  • Leaving with tools to have a difficult conversation and strengthen relationships

This program is part of the SHE Connects 2020 virtual conference. Learn more at: www.vencaf.org/SHEConnects

Virtual Venture Café: Relationship Management

April 2, 2020 @ 6:45pm

Business is personal. It’s built on relationships, whether with customers, co-founders, employees, managers, investors, or board members. Everyone can learn to build better relationships using a skill that fuels connection: empathy.

Empathy is the ability to experience and understand what others feel, even when you don’t agree with them. And because empathy is a skill, we can strengthen it with practice. As neuroscience tells us, “What we practice grows stronger.”

In this interactive session, you will be able to:

  • Learn the neuroscience of empathy and what gets in the way
  • Practice two mental habits for building empathy with anyone
  • Leave with tools to help make tough decisions that build trust
