Cedar Crest College's Power of Women Leadership Series Kicks off January 31  

Allentown, Pa. (Dec. 20, 2012)-the Women's Leadership Institute at Cedar Crest College will kick off its Power of Women Leadership Series on Thursday, Jan. 31, with a program titled, "The Power and Influence of Leadership Development."

This Leadership Series seminar, scheduled from 3-7 p.m. on campus, invites women at all career levels to examine their own influencing style, and learn how to project credibility and authority, gain buy-in for ideas and initiatives, and become more effective at leading others. Participants will learn how to navigate the organization with savvy, understand the unwritten ‘rules of the game,' cultivate an influential network, and grasp the mechanisms of power and influence.

The program will be led by two highly motivational speakers: Jo Miller, CEO of Women's Leadership Coaching, and Diane Moyer, Ph.D., psychology professor at Cedar Crest College and a United States Olympian and medalist.

As CEO of Women's Leadership Coaching, Miller is the creator of the Women's Leadership Coaching system, which thousands of emerging women leaders worldwide have used to develop their leadership skills and expand their sphere of influence. A leading authority on women's leadership, she delivers more than 60 speaking presentations annually to audiences of up to 1,200 women, and teaches workshops for women's conferences, women's professional associations, and Fortune 1000 corporate women's initiatives.

In addition to earning a Ph.D., Moyer is a Licensed Psychologist who received specialized training in working with children and adolescents at the Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. She holds memberships in the American Psychological Association, and the American Counseling Association and has published in several journals.

Moyer is also one of the few college professors with an Olympic bronze medal, having earned it as a goalie on the 1984 USA Field Hockey Team that competed in Los Angeles.

Future topics in the Power of Women Leadership Series include: "The Power of Whole Brain Communication" (April); "The Power of Positive Social Change" (June); "The Power of a 2-year, 10-year Career Plan" (August); and "The Power of Running Your Own Business" (October).
