Closing Deals in Six-Inch Heels is a group for success-minded business women balancing the work-life dichotomy. Our goal is to provide a space for professional women from diverse range of disciplines that can relax, unwind and network with peers in a collaborative and rewarding environment.
While the group is mainly geared towards women, we aren't in this alone; men make up the other half of the equation and as such, men who support women's empowerment are critical allies and are welcome to bring a fresh perspective from a male p.o.v. to the group. A sample of the important areas of focus for the group include the following:
Business Ideas and Strategies to Maximize Success.
Whether you've got it all figured out and want to share, or are struggling along, this group formulates ideas and strategies to move you to the next level of your career.
Interpersonal Relationships and Communication
Balancing work and relationships is a challenge every successful business woman must master. Here, women will share their experiences and strategies for having a rewarding personal life outside of the boardroom.
Women's Leadership and Political Representation
Representation in the business and political worlds are key to the successful integration of women into the decision-making fabric of our society. Business women explore the means for effective representation in an ever changing world.
Children and Career
So, we've met all the deadlines, closed the latest deal, or negotiated a jaw-dropping settlement in a lawsuit. What now? This group effectively explores and provides solutions to effectively manage our maternal instincts, while balancing work life.
Overcoming Fear of Failure
"Courage allows the successful woman to fail and learn powerful lessons, from the failure. So that in the end, she didn't fail at all." -Maya Angelou
Studies show , a major inhibitor of success among women, much more so than men, is fear of failure. But why fear failure, when you can mine it for gems that will help you to become even more successful than you would have been without this bump in the road? This group examines the rules of engagement when facing failures. We discuss these teaching moments as phenomenal launching pads to coming back stronger and more successful than ever.
Beyond our member-driven seminars and workshops, we also take time to bond and enjoy the wider world. Whether dressing up and having a night on the town or planning an adventurous excursion, anything can happen when women put their minds to it. Come join us and make friendships which will last a lifetime.
