Women and Breakthrough Leadership
“This is a really good course as it stands and has a great facilitator”
Team leader, Department for Education
Although women are now more visible in public leadership roles, there is no denying that they are still under-represented at the top levels. This highly practical programme addresses the issues and the challenges women face in leadership and offers advice and approaches based on what is proven to work well in terms of leading, managing and preparing for a career change or promotion.
By taking a highly practical, honest approach to the barriers facing women striving for a leadership position, and how they can be overcome, this one-day course offers delegates unique tips, insights and tactics for successful leadership and management, as well as exploring steps that delegates can take in the lead-up to a change in role.
Besides drawing on the trainer’s personal and vast experience the programme provides a coaching/mentoring teaching method that provide opportunities for personal reflection and support.
Women in Breakthrough Leadership is a unique and innovative course from our Leadership & Management series. At the Civil Service College, we tailor our courses to each attendee’s role and organisations, ensuring that each delegate gets the most out of the training. Our courses and trainers are continuously updated and evaluated to ensure that we are always delivering the best service possible.
Women and Breakthrough Leadership course is designed for women at any level and in any sector interested in developing their careers or refreshing their leadership approach, presence and impact.
Learning from peers who are in a similar position, delegates will be able to tackle stereotypes and invisible barriers to women’s advancement on the career ladder. Delegates will also have a new appreciation of themselves as leaders and managers, a greater understanding of themselves as prospective candidates for a career change and new insights into the ways selection and promotion panels work.
