What is the programme about?
Women as Leaders helps you to think positively about ambition, power, impression management and career success. By joining this personal development programme you will engage in stimulating research presentations, group discussions, an interactive workshop on leadership presence with a drama coach, co-counselling sessions, facilitation groups and depart with an elite network of women in business to work with in the future.
This programme is very participative in its approach by combining tutor input, group discussions and smaller group work designed to help participants develop insights about their assumptions, beliefs and behaviours. Each participant will have opportunities to review progress made against her personal learning goals as the programme proceeds.
Who is the programme for?
Experienced women professionals and managers who, for whatever reason, feel stuck in their careers, or feel that they would like to accelerate their careers.
