Description

Gloria Feldt writes in No Excuses: 9 Ways Women Must Change How We Think About Power, ""Women are more likely to be engaged not by screeching vehicular feats of daring, but equally intense though too often silent tests of their personal agency." We're all going to be defined, we're all going to be branded, we're all going to be framed from many perspectives by many people in many contexts. These are externally imposed definitions-- we can choose to accept them, or not. But far more important than external definition is how we define ourselves, and how we communicate our terms. When we take the time to use Power Tool #2: Define your own terms--first, before anyone else does, we take the step of intentionally standing in our power. And when we stand in our power, amazing things happen.

Define Your Terms Workshop Agenda

1:30 to 2:00: Define Your Terms Formal Presentation

  • This is an interactive presentation designed to allow participants the opportunity to explore what terms they have set for themselves personally and professionally. We'll be exploring our ability to state our terms first, and own our right to take up space physically, emotionally and intellectulally. We'll dive into the roadblocks we encounter when trying to communicate our terms, and look at opportunities to practice defining our terms in every aspect of our life.

2:00- 3:30: Small Group Discussion

  • Following the presentation, the group will select the topics for deeper conversation during the evening. There will be three 25 minute rounds of conversation, with 15 minutes for collaborative agenda setting prior to the conversations. There will be up to 9 separate small group conversations during this time, allowing participants to cover multiple topics related to defining our terms.

3:30-4:00: Large Group Closing

  • We'll gather in a large group and share key insights from our small group conversations, examine the patterns that emerged across our experiences, and commit to an intention to enhance our leadership practice based on the day's learnings.

Key Take Aways:

  • You'll have greater clarity about your intentions and goals, personally and professionally

  • You'll be able to identify areas of your life where you need to define your terms more clearly, or possibly for the first time

  • You'll learn the 6 "Gender Bilingual Communication" tricks to help you communicate your terms clearly across gender lines

  • You'll leave the conversation with a clear intention to grow in your own leadership practice


Please review the conversational agreements below prior to your arrival at the event.


“Everyone you will ever meet knows something that you don’t. … Respect their knowledge and learn from them. It will bring out the best in all of you.”

--Bill Nye


Conversational Agreements

1. We’ll Be Respectful: We're all humans, being. We’ll respect one another while we're being human together by listening with our full attention and speaking with intention.

2. We’ll Be Curious: Curiosity opens up conversation, while judgement shuts it down. We’ll practice curiosity and ask questions of one another.

3. No Cell Phones: We’ll place our cell phones on vibrate. While we recognize the need to be connected in case of emergency, we ask that the connections we're building through our interaction be valued and respected during our time together. If you must take an emergency call, please step outside of the room to do so.


About Certified Leadership Ambassador Sara Nett

I'm a lover of growth and change for the greater good. I coach individuals and train teams in impactful leadership practices, organizing, and mindful conversational practices. My engagement processes are designed to encourage self reflection, collaboration, and wise action. With a background in organizing, activism, and family services provision and advocacy, I understand the impact of women's leadership on organizations and society. I obtained my BS in Women's Studies from Minnesota State University, Mankato in 2004, certification in Leadership, Organizing and Action from the Harvard Kennedy School Executive Education program in May of 2015, and became a Certified Leadership Ambassador in October of 2015. I'm deeply grateful to Gloria Feldt, Amy Litzenberger and Take The Lead for their work, and the opportunity to be an active part of the movement for gender parity across all sectors by 2025.

Take The Lead, a 501c3 nonprofit organization founded by Gloria Feldt and Amy Litzenberger, prepares, develops, inspires, and propels women to take their fair and equal share of leadership positions across all sectors by 2025 (rather than 2095 as the World Economic Forum predicts). Take The Lead achieves its mission of gender parity in leadership through four keys to parity – learning programs (prepare), mentoring (develop), role model events (inspire), thought leadership and movement-building for systems change (propel).
