Women's Leadership Excellence
Despite the evidence that businesses improve their performance with more women in leadership positions, many companies are not taking advantage of the positive effects of having more women in decision-making roles. Women’s Leadership Excellence (WLE) provides a practical agenda for realizing the advantages of diverse leadership teams and supporting business women to maximize their impact.
Women’s Leadership Excellence will equip female leaders with the competence and skills to create, explore, and feel comfortable using the value that their gender brings to leadership. In a supportive and collaborative atmosphere, participants will learn how to overcome bias, strengthen their leadership talents, evaluate their career options, and acquaint themselves with networks supporting women in business. They will challenge pre-held notions of fairness and learn how to emphasize both their self-development and that of others.
Participants will learn from the latest research and thinking on how and why gender diversity is the key to sustainable organizational success. After challenging the ideas of stereotypes and bias in team performance, participants will learn which skills and characteristics support - and which hinder - their individual career progress, as well as how to maximize their impact as female leaders.
