Webinar #2 Leverage your networks

The Challenge: We need connections (aka networks) of people to get things done and to move up and around in the world, but many times we don’t know how to build our connections and then how to best use them to our benefit.

The Impact of not addressing it: Having a wide network protects against job layoffs, gives greater access to ideas and opinions, and means we don’t have to recreate the wheel if we need something, whether that be advice, a raise, or task to be completed.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand the three types of networking and why each are important
  • Understand which barriers to networking may be showing up for you and why.
  • Learn top tips and conversation starters for your next networking event!

Host: Kris Holloway, President & CEO, CIS Abroad

MORE INFORMATION: The Global Leadership League and our Advocate partner CIS Abroad have teamed up to offer a virtual webinar series and certificate this summer to help you enter the new academic year empowered and ready to rock-n-roll. 

As international educators, our roles encompass a range of skills that contribute to the overall success of our team and achievement of our goals. Many of us are thrust into managing people or budgets without any formal training or education. What to do? 

We must understand our own strengths and challenges, know how to use our connections, learn how to analyze the right data to inform decisions, and ultimately apply our skills to advocate for change for ourselves or our organizations. 

In this webinar series you will learn how to:

  • Vanquish Imposter Thoughts by learning the 5 strategies to address them. 
  • Leverage Your Networks through understanding the barriers you face and why.
  • Harness the Power of Data so you have the info you need to make decisions.
  • Advocate for What you Need by building a business case that appeals to logic AND emotion

This series consists of 4 webinars PLUS the opportunity to complete a certificate program where you will engage with a personal learning workbook and meet in a few chat rooms to discuss. This is an amazing way to showcase your knowledge and also network and learn from others.  You do not have to be signed up for the certificate to attend any of the webinars.  The webinars are only available (and free) to League members and the certificate will cost $99 USD for League members.

Please note you must register for EACH webinar and the Certificate program so that we can ensure you receive all the appropriate log in details. Start your registration for each event at our events page
