Welcome to ATHENA WIN, the Women's Interest Network - the organization for Mid-Michigan's most influential Women

Enlightened Leadership

Part leadership training, part book club, part networking – “Enlightened Leadership” is a program designed for professionals at all levels to increase their leadership skills and spend time reflecting on and implementing the 8 Principles of the ATHENA Leadership Model as outlined in Martha Mertz’s book, Becoming ATHENA. The 8 Principles are: Live Authentically, Learn Constantly, Advocate Fiercely, Act Courageously, Build Relationships and Foster Collaboration, Give Back, Celebrate, Legacy.

Participants in this program commit to seven 2 hour meetings over the course of several months. As part of a small group, the participants will discuss each of the ATHENA Leadership Model Principals. A facilitator will present briefly and get the discussion going but this is definitely a time to learn from other women in the group. On occasion, special guests or subject area experts may join the discussion.
