Are you showing up as a leader in your life?
Why does it matter? with Heather Beaton

WWBN Member Heather Beaton is passionate about women and leadership. Why? Because women lead in all aspects of their lives – leaders at home with our families, at schools where we volunteer, at the soccer field or the hockey rink where our kids play, in boardrooms, and where we run successful businesses. We often don’t think of ourselves as leaders in all aspects of our lives.

”How we show up anywhere is how we show up in most places in our lives”. Here many of us have blind spots, meaning we can’t see where our beliefs hold us back from leading more impactfully.

In this session you’ll discover:
– The impact of leading from authority versus leading from humanity
– Why authentic leadership can be messy
– Why perfectionism keeps you from living & leading full out
– What it means to fall from integrity grace

On January 7th, 2021 Heather will share her journey in leadership including some of the good, the bad and the ugly and why she is so passionate about supporting women to differentiate between how they are showing up in their leadership and what they do as leaders. As a young leader in the sport of figure skating, to leading in the corporate environment, to now running her own coaching & consulting business, Heather’s focus is to help women shine the light within and from here discover the gifts they haven’t yet shared with the world.
