About the Virtual Learning Series 

The Virtual Learning Series consists of monthly webinars about various industry-related subjects relevant for women who work in manufacturing. Topics are geared towards cultivating leadership skills, and a carefully selected knowledge expert hosts each webinar. Each webinar includes action-oriented and solution-driven objectives to help participants succeed in the manufacturing sector.

Virtual Learning Series webinars are a free WiM-member benefit, made possible through the generosity of PrincipalSM. WiM members are encouraged to register for each learning opportunity, as all registrants receive a recording of the presentation immediately following each webinar.

From Turbulent Seas to Steady at The Helm: Navigating Leadership with Confidence

Presented by: Alex Cary

Leadership can be uncomfortable. For many of us, discomfort stems from nagging self-doubt and a fear of not measuring up. Our self-created crisis of confidence is so prevalent we’ve even coined the term “imposter syndrome”.


Yet confidence breakdowns don’t need to get in our way. True confidence comes from effectively harnessing our inner narrative. While not easy, it is entirely within our capacity to move from an insecure to empowered state-of-mind.


We’ll explore the “how” of confidence: what it is, where it resides, and how to reconnect once lost. Through client stories and practical tools, participants learn that insecure narrative drives insecurity—and that we can take dominion.


We'll work with the ultimate confidence pitfall: “I’m not enough; not smart / good / fast / (blank) enough. Participants are invited to create a new narrative centered in “I am enough”, and experience the impact true confidence can have on themselves, those they lead, and the projects they care about.
