To be ready, either when called, or, when they claim the opportunity, there are skills women need to make sure they have developed both in their mindset and in their communication skills.

Visionary Women: The Changing Face of Power and Leadership

The new paradigm for being a powerful woman includes a leadership style built on compassion, effectiveness, thoughtfulness, and success. Visionary women, thought-leaders in their own right, have become results-oriented achievers, with a vision of team and mentorship built on a dream of community, team, and individual accomplishments. They know how to dream big while thinking out of the box; how to share a vision that inspires; and how to exceed self-limiting expectations. Because of that willingness to dream, overcome past negative messages, and take the risks needed, they are bringing a genuine richness to a field once dominated by men. Claim and bring this new energy to your team, your workplace, or your association.

How Your Leadership DNA Impacts Your Health

Dr. Dorothy offers a common sense, and well-researched, look into how your leadership DNA impacts your health while explaining how different personalities hold their stress differently. Some are more prone to migraines when heavily stressed, while others tend to get strep throats, or back problems, etc. Sadly, holding excessive stress for extended periods of time can lead to far more severe disorders.

This talk is a humorous yet insightful adventure into self-understanding and the possibilities for change in behavior and beliefs in order to support your health.

Understanding your particular leadership DNA, its strengths and weaknesses, along with the diseases most common to your particular style, let’s you see the changes that are possible and how the risk of disease can be eliminated or at least minimized.

Dr. Dorothy’s ability to make the complex easily understood is a gift as she provides information and understanding of how much power we have in impacting our own health, and our own success. Dr. Dorothy shows how, more than genetics, your personal leadership DNA impacts your health.
