    Success today is increasingly determined not just by how many hours you spend in your office, but your ability to connect to others, how you incorporate outside perspectives, and how you navigate networks. Building and maintaining relationships takes time, but progress is not achieved in solitude. Research shows that women harness the power of their relationships differently than men and it’s hindering our success, but just like getting better at math, or becoming a more skilled communicator, it’s a skill all of us are not only capable of learning, but one that women should be prioritizing.

    Neena Hogle is the Empowerment Program Manager for YWCA Great Lakes Bay Region. In addition to living her dream by joining the YWCA, she is also an entrepreneur with her own coaching and consulting business, Fearless Networking. Neena believes that when people know how to build strong professional and personal networks they afford themselves more opportunities, become more confident and build the foundation for reaching their goals. She helps equip men and women with the skills to create strong connections, lead a meaningful career, and network their way to their dreams.

    After she discovered that she could actually get paid to talk to people, Neena obtained a B.A. in Communication from Saginaw Valley State University. She is a self-proclaimed dog mom who enjoys spending time networking with other dog parents at the dog park with her angelic pooch, Deamon.

    What is the answer to sustainable success? How does one organization seem to continually struggle while its competition always seems to advance and enjoy success? Successful organizations have figured out the one solution that 46% of all businesses have not.

    What is that one solution? Developing people. Dr. Michael Rhodabarger teaches organizations how to frame success by creating powerful teams, one employee at a time. It all begins with a solid foundation of servant leadership defined by three strategic competencies. Once this style of leadership is developed and

     mastered, businesses begin to see tangible transformations within their company and people. Transformational leadership is defined by four competencies and are essential to cohesive teamwork and organizational success.

    This process of framing success, taught by Dr. Rhodabarger, is informational, inspirational, and challenging all at the same time. Just the presentation alone will send professionals back to their jobs feeling empowered, confident, and committed to their assignments.

    Dr. Michael Rhodabarger is founder and consultant of ExecuSpect Business Consulting. His passion for leadership started in 1995 where he was first invited to provide training in a specific project for the plant where he was employed. Since then, he has worked for several companies in management and corporate training positions. He holds a PhD in organizational leadership and has developed a leadership assessment instrument that measures individual leadership competencies that can and should be developed if business and leader are to succeed.

    Michael’s doctoral research, titled Transformational and Servant Leadership Characteristics of Successful Leaders has culminated into a book called Leadership Equilibrium and has been used for personal leadership development by individuals as well as executive bo

    ards across the U.S. including churches, dealerships, manufacturing, healthcare, food service, and homeless shelters. He believes that organizational success is built on the strength of morals, values, and personal leadership competencies necessarily exhibited in the leader. He emphasizes and develops specific competencies that help leaders identify, confront, and overcome challenges threatening the progress and success of their business.

    Life Philosophy: Enjoy the Journey. Your legacy is built upon every event you survive.

     As women continue to close the wage and ‘C suite’ gap we need to examine what being a ‘leader’ really looks like.  Women can lead from any position, Executive Director to stay at home mom and entrepreneur and everywhere in-between.  We will look at various styles of leadership, how leadership shows up in different seasons of our lives, what leadership means and the impact of truly human leadership can have on the people around us.
