It is a time of uncertainty and change in the world and the workplace, especially for women. It has been argued that women will soon catch up to men in leadership roles, but a recent study shows that given the current rates of change it is likely to be another 200 years until we achieve gender parity. As women are still pushing to reach the top the challenges for women continue, in areas such as confidence and speaking up, in difficulties building alliances with powerful decision makers, and in subtle and not-so-subtle forms of bias. As such, acquiring key leadership skills are critical for women to take on important roles, and to work to change our institutions for the better.
Participants will focus on how to be both a woman and a leader by understanding the common traps women face in leading, as well as how to overcome them. Starting with discovering your authentic leadership style, we will launch the program with an action plan for each participant to thrive as a visionary leader. From there, we will bring in the skills needed to bridge the “knowing-doing” gap, including power and influence, negotiation and networking and leading effective teams.
