Webinar: Rising Together
Photo of Sally Helgesen

In this follow-up to her international bestseller How Women Rise, Sally Helgesen draws on three decades of work with executives and aspiring leaders around the world to offer practical ways to build more inclusive relationships, teams, and workplaces. In this fireside chat format with our Executive Director, Jeffrey Hull, Sally will identify the eight common triggers most likely to undermine our ability to collaborate across divides—not only of gender, but also of age, ethnicity, race, sexuality, and life experience. These triggers are widespread, yet rarely acknowledged. They include differences in how people from different backgrounds view ambition, competence, perceptions, fairness, communication, networks, attraction, and humor.

Together Jeff and Sally will discuss specific practices designed to address these triggers that will be useful for coaches in their work: simple behavioral tweaks that we can use on a daily basis; a method for informally enlisting allies to hold us to account; and a means for cultivating and disseminating the dynamic power of we.

This fireside chat format will also enable substantial time for participants to interact with Sally and get direct input from her around best practices and insights from her book that can be put to work directly in their coaching with leaders. Sally's work serves as an indispensable guide for leadership coaches and other professionals tasked with addressing the misunderstandings, resentments, and derailments caused by the eight triggers. Sally’s focus on behaviors—how we act—rather than bias—how we think—promises to redirect the inclusion conversation in a grounded, real-world way that brings us together. We look forward to an exciting and interactive conversation!
