Follow Up Reading From CCCMA Women Leading Government Conference Call

Posted on January 6, 2017


On Thursday, January 5, 2017, ELGL participated in a conference call with the Colorado Women Leading Government group to talk about how women can pay more attention to their language and tone to increase their leadership efficacy. Here’s the session information:


Topic: Woman in a Meeting: How Our Language Shapes Perceptions of Women in Leadership

Do you speak “woman in a meeting?” Not sure? Take this handy test. Have you ever: Apologized for something when you did nothing wrong? Completed a statement with a question mark? Softened or downplayed facts? Worried that being ‘blunt’ will make you sound angry?

If you answered “yes” to one or more of these statements, join us on January 5, 2017 at 4:00 for a CWLG conference call. Kirsten Wyatt from ELGL will share some ideas and suggestions on how our language shapes perceptions of women leaders, and what we can do to support one another in the workplace.
