Institute of Women's Leadership Wraps Up

The Institute of Women's Leadership recently completed their six-week fall session.  The Institute is a partnership between the Pekin Area Chamber of Commerce and Char Richardson of Richardson Counseling and Wellness Center.

The Institute was designed for committed, engaged career women ready to approach key challenges with a new perspective. The program provided a unique forum for women to realize their full potential and attain their highest levels of effectiveness and productivity in both their personal and professional lives.

Participants worked toward goals and created and maintained change through a supportive community of accountability.  Topics included...
  • Boost your career   
  • Lesson plan for change 
  • Growing in emotional intelligence 
  • Diffusing anger in others / effective conflict resolution 
  • Life balance and energy 
  • Eliminating obstacles / goal setting
Participants had favorable comments about the program.
Great program that helped me develop both personally and professionally.
This was a safe place to dialogue and discuss vulnerable topics.  I appreciated learning from Char and other professional women.
Char had great materials, was engaging and thoughtful.  The women in the group were very professional and it was great to share our experiences.
The Institute program has been a great experience for me.  It was a safe space to express my feelings, grow as a person, and make connections with other women.
The Pekin Area Chamber of Commerce and Richardson Counseling and Wellness Center hope to schedule another Institute of Women's Leadership in the spring.
