Empowering Women Leaders
I, along with my colleague, Lillas Hatala, am excited to be working with Edwards School of Business Executive Education on a new initiative – the Empowering Women Leaders Program. The five-day plus coaching program provides an opportunity for women to step away, have conversations with other women, and work with foundational and leading edge research and practices most relevant for today’s women leaders. Topics will include building leadership identity, negotiating for self and others and integration of career and life as well as a new to Saskatoon, 360 feedback process. This program is for women, designed and offered by women, and provides an environment where women can discuss their experiences, leadership challenges and successes and support one another.
For further details and dates of 2018 programs go here.

Emotional Intelligence: The Other Side Of Smart
There is growing evidence that the range of abilities now commonly known as Emotional Intelligence (EQ) plays a key role in determining success in life and in the workplace. And the good news, EQ can be improved through education and practice. In this session, you will:
- Hear about the compelling Business Case for Emotional Intelligence
- Learn about the key Emotional Intelligence concepts
- Receive and review your EQ using the Emotional Intelligence Appraisal
- Work with techniques for applying emotional intelligence at work and home
“This course is a good balance of instruction, group, and one on one discussion. Use of other media (eg. videos) as resource material that enabled understanding of and development of EI.” -Joanne Kowalski
Watch for 2019 dates.
You can also book a one or two day session on emotional intelligence for your team or organization.
