What we're about

The Mission of our Leadership Development Program is to provide ongoing training in advanced professional development skills so that members of our community grow and eventually assume positions of leadership with confidence, efficacy, and vision. DoveWI's Leadership Development Program is rooted in three core competency areas:

RELATIONSHIP BUILDING: Building relationships, networking, and effectively communicating with others. Leaders think and act across organizational functions and silos — and help others to do the same.

OPERATING AND MOTIVATING: Managing people, processes, and initiatives in order to achieve organizational excellence. Leaders effectively manage people and processes up and down the organization, getting the top and the bottom of the hierarchy to work together.

REASONING AND STRATEGIC THINKING: Identification of opportunities, thoughtful analysis, and synthesis of data leading to strategic solutions. Leaders handle uncertainty, solve multi-dimensional problems and deal with interconnected systems.

Workshop: New Rules for Women?
Needs a date and time

Dove Wellness Institute

The DoveWI Workshop Series presents: Women Working Together – Issues and Strategies for More Productive Engagement between Women at Work Presented by: Dr. Wayne A. Matthews Register Today! Why do women often feel belittled, betrayed, or sabotaged by other women in the workplace? THE NEW RULES FOR WOMEN: Revolutionizing the Way Women Work Together (Third Bridge Press; September 2014) delves into this vexing and vital question. Based on her original research into women’s relationships, communication, and expectations at work, Dr. Anne Litwin reveals startling paradoxes that spur misunderstandings, conflict, and resentment between women on the job. Beyond shedding light on the problem, Dr. Litwin offers workable solutions to help women develop more supportive relationships with female colleagues at every level—for the sake of their own job satisfaction and their organization’s success. In this workshop, we will review Dr. Anne Litwin's book and explore how it exposes key sources of confusion and misunderstanding between women colleagues and offers powerful tools for preventing and resolving conflict that result in better relationships, as well as increased productivity and retention. Learning Objectives: Leverage women's strengths such as team- and consensus-building Overcome conflicts due to gender socialization and organizational culture Recognize and manage role boundaries and gender expectations Learn what patterns exist in working relationships among women and how women's expectations can create misunderstandings
