Women in Leadership Institute
What is a typical day like at the Women in Leadership Institute™?
What is the Advancing Women Leaders 360° Assessment? Do I need to take this assessment before I experience WIL?
Yes, we encourage all attendees to complete the Advancing Women Leaders 360° Assessment before they arrive at WIL. Here’s why: As you begin the challenging work of evaluating your leadership abilities and defining goals for yourself, nothing is more valuable than real data.
That’s where the assessment comes in. You will be measured on your proficiency in the six competencies associated with success for women leaders. And, because the assessment is a 360° assessment tool, members of your organization—including those you manage, work alongside, and work for—will have the ability to assess you as well.
This means that you gain some truly invaluable insights into how you rate yourself as a leader and how others perceive you as a leader. Combined, the results will lay the foundation of your time with us at WIL–they will even influence your placement on a learning team and individual learning tracks.
Do I need to complete my Advancing Women Leaders 360° Assessment by a certain date?
Is the curriculum offered at the Women in Leadership Institute™ based on research?
I will be assigned a Learning Team. What is that?
How are Learning Teams created?
Will I be in a Learning Team with colleagues from my organization?
It depends. Some organizations send an intact team of women leaders to the Institute and request to keep them together for the duration of the on-site experience, while other organizations elect to have attendees experience the Institute as individual leaders. There are benefits to both options. Intact teams can experience the Institute through the lens of their individual organization and team, while organizations that choose to have team members dispersed across many Learning Teams benefit by exposing their leaders to a diverse group of women from different industries, with a variety of experiences and viewpoints.
If you are attending the event on your own, separate from an organization, you will be assigned to a Learning Team which best matches your leadership style, goals, and background.
