creating female leaders
This introduction to leadership run in two half-day sessions really punches above its weight.
What is it?
The course includes theory, practical exercises and concludes with setting individual goals. It’s interactive, stimulating and designed to get people thinking differently about their approach to leadership. The four modules covered across the two sessions examine the cornerstones of modern leadership and are all offered as standalone workshops where the themes are explored in more detail.
Who should come?
It’s aimed at emerging leaders, those with high potential or taking on additional responsibility and Women who are dealing with challenges or obstacles that they need to reframe.
What will they get out of it?
- A broader understanding of different leadership styles and approaches
- Increased self-awareness of their own strengths and development areas
- How to build their resilience in the workplace
- Understanding different communication styles
- An actionable career plan
SKILLS & STRENGTHS
The norms on what constitutes good leadership are changing as well as the range of leadership styles.
More women in senior leadership positions is now a requirement that is proven to deliver to the bottom line.
- What are your natural strengths?
- What strengths are valued in your company or industry?
- What skills do you need to succeed and what are your gaps?
We all use the word resilience but do we actually know what it means or how resilient we are? Managing resilience is an absolute essential in today’s workplace and leaders need more of it than most. We will briefly look at:
- Birdsoup’s resilience model
- Resilience resources
- Applying the model to participants own personal situation
PERSONALITY & COMMUNICATION STYLE
Harvard professor Amy Cuddy has shown that first impressions are judged on two parameters: competence and warmth. What first impression do you make and how do you judge others?
- What’s your default communication style?
- What qualities do you bring to a team
- Dealing with your “opposite”
- What can happen on a bad day
CAREER PLANNING and RESILIENCE
Having a career plan is vital for everyone but even more so for women, who face a number of major transitions throughout their lives. We finish the course by looking at the following and setting personal goals:
- Past, present and future work/life
- Resources and skills required to achieve future success
- Personal goals in the short, mid and long-term
