About the course
Accelerate your career
The programme is designed to assist and inspire women in leadership positions for greater success in current assignments and to manoeuvre their career in the desired direction by addressing contemporary challenges women are facing when transitioning to a higher management level.
From a gender and leadership perspective, the programme focuses on identifying behavioural patterns and unconscious biases, which sometimes are powerful, yet invisible, barriers to women’s advancement. Focus will also be on the diversity and gender dynamics of groups with the purpose of teaching the participants to navigate in their organisations/teams, thus enhancing their business influence. The second main theme of leading women is personal leadership. The participants will be encouraged to identify and connect with their higher leadership purpose, and they are offered a practical toolbox to strengthen their personal presence. In this connection, the programme seeks to strengthen the participants’ impact through verbal and non-verbal communication – as an easy way through their challenges as leaders. The learning method is a mixture of lectures by faculty and guest speakers, classroom and group discussion and more experiential training session with creative, physical, and mental exercises.
