7 Essential Qualities of Women Who Lead

When you think about leadership, what skills immediately come to mind? Perhaps strategy, negotiations, education, technical knowledge, communication, power and presence? While those are extremely important qualities to have, studies have shown that soft skills are even more important in leadership than the hard skills we have grown accustomed to. While hard skills will get you the job, it’s the soft skills that will get you to the top.

In the engaging and interactive session, Judy will speak about seven essential leadership qualities and traits that are paramount to success. Be prepared to walk away with useful, proven tips and best practices.

Judy Hoberman, President of Walking on the Glass Floor and Selling In A Skirt – International Speaker, Trainer, Coach, Author and Mentor. Her 30 years in business has given her both the knowledge and sense of humor about how men and women sell, work and live differently will enlighten you in learning how both genders can support each other’s successes in a more productive way.

Her audiences, from 10 to 10,000 are engaged with details wrapped in memorable stories that are easily implemented that same day. In 2016 she was a TEDx speaker talking about pre-judging people, something we all do without even thinking. She is the author of “Selling In A Skirt”, “Famous Isn’t Enough”, “Pure Wealth” and “Walking on the Glass Floor” is about the soft skills of leadership. A complete training program rounds out the training and development of women in leadership and the men that champion them. As her book was coming off the printing press, Judy completed a program from Cornell University’s College of Business in Women in Leadership and a second program for Women in Entrepreneurship. Her company’s focus is on three main verticals: Technology, Financial and Healthcare.

She was recently named as a Woman to Watch for International Women’s Day 2019 from Thrive Global.
