Talks and Workshops

Jocelyn says: “They told me I shouldn’t do it, couldn’t do it—but I went ahead and did it, and the Beyond Lean In: Women Redefining Leadership book tour sold out across the US! 15 authors, 5 cities, and >200 participants added up to one incredible journey with amazing thinkers and a whole lot of real talk about women, work, and leadership. Here are a few pics that capture the vibe. Learn more about all the authors and events on the Press tab.”

Jocelyn says: “Inter-faith Housing Group held their executive offsite in Santa Fe and volunteered to test my new workshop, Women’s Archetypes for Every Leader. Here’s a snapshot of their feedback!”

New Lenses on Leadership Development: Think differently about how you develop your leaders

Leadership Traps: The eight biggest pitfalls for leaders and how to avoid them

Leadership Character: Become a leader of substance

Jocelyn says: “Amy Cuddy, I love your book Presence, and I power-pose before every talk! But I think the business world needs substance more than presence. We need to bring back ways to talk about character: how to recognize it, how to develop it.”

Strategic Speed: Mobilize people, accelerate execution

Jocelyn says: “For the past three years I’ve been delivering virtual talks on Strategic Speed (my first book) to executives at a major international airport as part of their leadership academy. I’ve been pleased to see how well the Clarity/Unity/Agility framework still works for leaders. Click the image below to see my Thinkers50 interview on Strategic Speed.
