Learn The Rudiments of effective leadership...

Why Attend?

This course creates confident and powerful female leaders: women who are ready to step up and be acknowledged for the great leaders they truly are. By the end of this course, participants will be able to distinguish between a manager and a leader and use their leadership skills to become assertive and influential. This course aims to give participants the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to be effective leaders in the workplace.

Participants will be able to identify their own leadership style using behavioral models and, most importantly, be aware of the impact of their behavior on others, and how they are perceived by colleagues, seniors and direct reports. Participants will also learn how to communicate assertively and to handle conflicts so that they can make their voice heard, be respected as a confident leader and have the courage to hold difficult conversations when necessary.

As a result they will increase their sphere of influence, strengthen working relationships, build rapport and trust with employees, and develop a reputation as an effective leader.
