Course description

This 5-month programme is designed to accelerate the development and promotion of high-potential women. It is suitable for established female managers, including those with no direct line management responsibility, but whom are part of a wider team and who are required to influence and motivate others in their network.

The programme is constructed to empower female leaders to overcome unconscious gender bias, strengthen authority and presence, handle pressure confidently and hone interpersonal and communication skills. Learning on this programme is supported by co-coaching, filming & playback, voice & body language coaching, skills based practice and discussion.

At every stage of the programme relevant data and conceptual frameworks are presented followed by practical exercises to help embed the learning to real life situations. At the end of each session learners will be encouraged to identify personal action points, new behaviours and strategies to try out back in the office.
