The Center for Creative Solutions is sponsoring a seminar, ìWomen and Leadership: A Balancing Act.î The day-long seminar will be composed of four, two-hour sessions on Feb. 17 and March 3, 17 and 31, at the Northern Indiana Education Foundation, located at 410 Franklin Square in Michigan City.
†The topics covered will include: How our society, past and present, defines leadership; how these definitions work against women leaders; what your leadership strengths and challenges are; what you can do to improve your leadership skills; the value of feedback; where women leaders have thrived and lagged behind; barriers women leaders still face; strengths women leaders bring to businesses and other organizations; the end of the ìglass ceilingî and beginning of the ìlabyrinthîñ how women become leaders in the 21st Century; closing the gender divide through effective negotiation skills, and developing a plan of action to augment your leadership opportunities.
†The sessions will be interactive. Participants will have time for discussion, networking and building skills. They will receive an assessment of their leadership skills by taking the Leadership Practices Inventory. This simple tool has been used by thousands of Americans to help them obtain their top leadership potential.

She has served in many state and local leadership positions, such as the elected La Porte County Prosecuting Attorney, and on boards of directors of many not-for-profit organizations and governmental bodies. In addition to starting the center, Hedge led several community initiatives and organizations.
†Hedge has practiced law for over more than 30 years and has consulted for the United States Justice Department, businesses and not-for-profit organizations. She has a masterís degree from the International Center for Studies in Creativity and Change Leadership in New York.
