Buy Sex+ Zine: Women On Top -- Leadership from Bedroom To Boardroom Tickets
Everyone has opportunities to lead in life. It might look like leading teams at work, leading ourselves through a creative process, leading a group of friends on a night out or leading your partner during sex. Leadership skills are transferable and essential to stay in your agency and empowerment, and make the most out of change. Leading is what catapults you into living our best life and doing more of what you love in the world.
In this unique panel we will explore how to use our sexuality as a catalyst for leadership and empowerment, including the following topics:
- How to find your authentic desires
- How to ask for what you want
- How to manage fear of loss and fear of rejection
- Erotic leadership 101 and how to use it beyond the bedroom
- How to supercharge your current leadership
- How to get comfortable with negotiation
- The role of intuition and the body in leadership
- Troubleshooting and what to do when it all goes wrong!
