Free ‘Winning Edge Leadership for Women’ training on Jan. 13 in Hilo
Sylvia Dolena, an external business consultant with major corporations, will present a free training on Jan. 13, 2023, called “Winning Edge Leadership for Women.”
It is part of Ku‘ikahi Mediation Center’s “Teamwork, Leadership and Preparing for the New Economy” training series.
The workshop runs from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo, UCB 127, 200 W. Kawili Street in Hilo.
“How do women learn to maneuver and succeed when advancing up the leadership ladder, especially given the additional obstacles we must overcome?” Dolena asks. “Learn to access your innate talents and develop new skills for stepping powerfully into leadership.”
This training explores:
- Why women have difficulty promoting themselves and talking about their accomplishments
- Why men’s gut instincts are often respected, while women’s intuitions are often discounted
- How women can empower themselves despite biased mindsets in the workplace.
Dolena worked for Hewlett-Packard for 18 years as a global programs and operations manager and as a strategic change project manager. She has worked as an external business consultant with Hewlett-Packard and other high-tech and retail companies like AMD and Best Buy.
Currently, Dolena is a project manager for one Fortune 100 Company’s new Leadership Certification Program. She delivers workshops and leadership development programs in Hawai’i and nationally.
She holds an MBA in Organizational Effectiveness from the University of Southern California and an MS in Strategic Management of Technology Organizations from Stanford and IESE, the European School of Business in Barcelona.
This training series, in partnership with University of Hawai‘i at Hilo is made possible in part to funding from the Atherton Family Foundation, County of Hawaiʻ and the Hawai‘i Island United Way.
