Hello ladies, SIM Women is a network inside the SIM association that promotes mentorship, communication and career development amongst the female members of SIM.

It is a pleasure to invite you to SIM Women’s February webinar on Wednesday, February 24th at 3pm ET. Those who RSVP that they can attend will receive the webinar access information a day prior to the event as well as a pre-webinar worksheet.

We’ve all felt frustrated because we weren’t able to influence an idea or decision at one point.  As a result of our February webinar, "5 Strategies to Influence Decisions, Even When You Don’t Have Authority!” you will gain access to insights and principles that will help you advance your ideas from concept to approval.

  • One of the most valuable keys to effective leadership today is influence, not authority, according to leadership experts.
  • It is no longer viewed as a ‘soft skill’, but as one of the most important ‘hard skills’ required to earn respect as a successful leader.
The webinar will be facilitated by Gerrie Dresser, a nationally recognized executive coach, personal brand expert, and speaker who is a strong advocate of SIM Women. Gerrie Dresser is CEO/Founder of Unique Impact, with services that help courageous leaders and innovative companies maximize their distinctive value to STAND OUT and THRIVE in a world of ever-accelerating change. Gerrie brings over 25 years of real world corporate leadership experience and professional coaching expertise.

In this webinar, Gerrie will share her personal experiences in gaining approval on strategic corporate projects as well as her research with executive leaders on gaining approval while influencing without authority. Gerrie will discuss:
  • Three keys to lead from a position of strength when selling ideas without authority
  • Five most frequent derail factors that leaders experience when gaining approval for their business idea
  • Strategies and insights that executive leaders use to overcome adversityin selling their idea through influence
Pre-webinar worksheet: You will receive the program handout with your access information onTuesday, February 23rd. In order for these topics to be relevant to you, consider identifying a business case or idea that you want to advance as context while listening to the webinar.

This dynamic and highly interactive webinar will help each of us gain confidence in strategies and designing blueprints to advance our ideas. RSVP here!

Save the date: May 5th 2016 – SIM Women’s Executive Leadership Forum – Hyatt Regency McCormick's Place, Chicago, Illinois! A full day of amazing speakers and networking that you won’t want to miss!

"Women helping Women" is a long-standing concept. To all our members, as always, I hope you continue to participate in and personally benefit from SIM Women. We can't do it without you!

Thank you,
Kristen Lamoreaux
