NEW! The VSCPA is excited to launch firm sponsorship opportunities for the Women’s Leadership Forum. This sponsorship will provide you the opportunity to highlight your firm’s dedication and commitment to diversity and inclusion in the profession.
Weaving together stories of women who have learned to live authentic lives by taking risks and choosing to seek failure rather than fear it, Kimberly Ellison Taylor, CPA, will kick off the VSCPA's inaugural Women’s Leadership Forum by offering tools to improve resiliency and create new opportunities. She ignites and inspires audience members to pursue risk and help reshape the profession with strong women in positions of leadership.
Let’s face it — this profession can feel demanding at times! Many of us focus all our energy on serving those around us — our clients, teams, colleagues, family and friends — oftentimes at the expense of our own well-being.
In order to be a high performer in any field, you must increase your capacity to bring energy and full engagement to the things you value most. Explore how well-being and mindfulness contribute to your performance and leadership capacity, and create your own personal peak performance plan!
Participate in self-exploration and education in this self-development workshop examining personal and societal drivers and how they relate to self-perceived professional success. Oftentimes, self-confidence, our own inner critic and fraudulent feelings of self-doubt can cause a woman to question her success or eschew promotional or entrepreneurial opportunities despite being a high achiever. This workshop is intended to be educational, interactive and lend itself to cohort participation and discussion.
- Examine how personal thoughts and values systems relate to internal views of self-confidence, happiness and professional self-fulfillment
- Identify what imposter syndrome is and how patterns of thinking and habits of behavior can limit personal and professional success
- Identify tactics and tools to move past limiting beliefs and how to apply behaviors that will increase confidence, reduce perfectionistic thinking, and move towards goal achievement
Do you need an energy boost but think you have to work up a sweat to get results? Are chemically-concocted, vending machines delicacies a staple in your diet?
Participate in this interactive session designed to power up your productivity and health, increasing creativity and collaboration and improve decision making. The comprehensive information you will learn can be applied immediately, so you walk away not just with the knowledge of what to do, but with the plan and actionable steps to put it in place.
Effective communication is more than just words and phrases. It’s a projection of your competence and even your potential as a leader. Great communicators can voice their vision confidently, move plans and projects forward, and present their ideas across all levels of an organization. Join this workshop for actionable steps to develop your own communication style. Learn about speaking with clarity and confidence so that your ideas are heard, your value is clear, and your opinions are remembered.
It comes. And when it does, adversity arrives with a fierceness. We can't stop adversity from coming, but we can develop the resilience to face it with a fierceness all our own. This dynamic, interactive session shows us how we can cultivate the courage to not only face adversity, but to transform from it by building our resilience muscles. Actively practice cultivating your own courage and leave with a personal "fierceness workout" plan.
