Self Leadership: The Keys to Empowering Yourself | Nova Talent x Women’s Career Network

Nova has partnered with the Women’s Career Network (WCN) and invites you to an digital evening for inspiration and meaningful conversations. The event with the topic “Self Leadership: The Keys to Empowering Yourself” will exclusively give Nova Members and WCN members the opportunity to gain insights about the networks, but also connect with each other whilst discussing topics related toself-leadership and personal development. 

The event will start with an introduction to Women’s Career Network, and to Nova. We have also invited the 2021 Nova 111 Jury’s Choice and previous WCN advisory board member Annie Lindmark to talk about self-leadership and Empower Cards; a card deck with questions around gratitude, values, and dreams, that she and her co-founder Sofie Johnson has developed. After Annie’s presentation, we will split into groups and use Empower Cards to discuss the three different topics and how they are related to Personal Development and Self-Leadership.
