  "Essential Lessons for Women in Leadership"
Women play an important role in every organization because they bring different perspectives. However, leadership is more than team management or becoming executives in an organization. And it’s not about gender stereotypes, either.
Leadership is about how you lead your life: using strategies and taking action toward making a positive impact. During this talk, we will discuss:
  • Advocate for yourself, your team, and your collective ideas
  • ​Establish strategic networks and better leverage them to champion change
  • ​Engage supporters through compelling communications
  • ​Overcome challenges to your visibility and authority
  • ​Negotiate favorable outcomes and manage conflict
  • Articulate your vision and your action plan for personal leadership
Joy Glen is a target driven visionary leader with 20 years of experience optimizing sales and delivering premium patient care in the hearing care industry. She has held executive positions with 4 of the global hearing aid manufacturers and also manages her own independent hearing care clinic in Cincinnati.

Her expertise includes recruiting, onboarding, training, identifying and leveraging team strengths, overcoming team conflicts, creating effective go-to-market strategies, pricing, sales, and clinic operations. Joy is a licensed sales trainer and Audiologist, having earned her Master of Arts at the University of Cincinnati.

Testimonials

Christine Wilson, M.S., CCC-A

"Last August I had the opportunity to have Dr. Gyl visit my office for a consultation. I knew I was doing a lot of the right things but needed some direction moving forward out of the pandemic.
We reviewed my P and L’s, revenue and cost of goods, marketing dollars and payroll. She helped me see where I could cut costs and improve profitability. I have to say I was a little nervous before she came, because I thought she was going to give me the “white glove test” LOL ! It’s a little intimidating to lay out all your business doings, as we all know she is a very astute business lady! Spending time with her though was amazing! Her warmth and her real caring about how I was doing both personally and professionally was clear and evident. Not to leave out she is a hoot to hang out with! It was definitely worth my time and dollars spent! She left me with great ideas and confidence in what I was doing already! Can’t wait for the next Dr. Gyl conference!"
