Event Description:
How do you know you’re ready to play a larger game at work? You’re willing to explore how you might be standing in the way of your growth AND you decide to do something about it. There’s a catch, though! Performance is one thing and Mastery is something else. Think of mastery like a marathon and performance like a sprint. Marathon runners allocate their energy in strategic ways to finish the race. Sprinters exert as much energy as they can immediately because they are only looking to run 100m. When a female leader like you chooses a larger game, that means you’re leaning into your mastery and growth mindset. With clear goals in mind, effective leaders put themselves on a mastery path. They test and learn and test and learn again. Why? These leaders know a series of individual performances don’t matter but that iteration and learning do. In this interactive session, we’ll talk about what an empowered growth mindset looks like as well as explore how you can embrace your Zone of Genius, the highest and best use of your time and talent. The outcome? Focus, confidence, inspiration and motivation.

About Our Speaker:
Parissa Behnia coaches C Suite and Senior leaders who are high will-high skill and have a growth mindset. In other words, they're badasses like you who go 80MPH in a 45MPH zone. These days, leadership is full of complexities whether you’re navigating from an audacious goal or trying to avoid that iceberg up ahead. In either case, Parissa's clients choose her because she's either sat in those seats or next to those seats often enough to know how it can feel to be alone in a crowded leadership room. She's unafraid to speak truth to power to help propel you forward. With over two decades of corporate, consulting, coaching and – let’s be honest – real life experience, Parissa’s key strategic difference is Empathy. Empathy in business is more than being nice to one another, it’s a strategic imperative. It means that leaders create context and understanding so that they do a better job of serving their customers and engaging their teams. She’s so passionate about the application of empathy in business that she’s developed the Sixense Empathy Model for her clients to employ. And, she wants all of us to put empathy at the forefront of how we engage with everybody. Parissa Behnia is a Certified Professional Coach, holds a BA from Northwestern University and MBA from NYU’s Stern School of Business.
