About the course

Our Top-Talent Leadership Programme is for senior female executives. A collaborative initiative, the programme is hosted by Roundtable: Women in Leadership (an exclusive senior executive women’s network) and KDVI (a global leadership development and organisational change consultancy). Our combined objective is to inspire talented female executives and to help them advance in their careers.

Identifying one’s individual and authentic leadership style is key to adding value and having impact at a team and organisational level. However, role models and female peers become increasingly hard to find as women progress into top positions within their organisations. Finding opportunities to develop one’s leadership capabilities can be difficult especially in the absence of female role models and within exclusively masculine leadership organisational cultures.

This Leadership Programme is intended to help cultivate your leadership capabilities and to enhance your strategic network with other senior women. Through in-depth executive group coaching sessions, the use of feedback tools, leadership lectures, inspirational sessions, and the sharing of best practices, participants are given the development they need to make the next step in their career.

How is this women’s leadership programme unique?

  • With the assistance of experienced senior executive coaches, participants are given time to reflect on their leadership style and the opportunity to develop themselves
  • Participants begin to build their network by linking into a pre-established community of very senior, board level female executives
  • Group coaching sessions with peers develop learning communities that can extend well beyond the length of the programme
