Women’s Leadership

Diverse, inclusive senior management leads to increased retention, better decision making and greater creativity.

Women's leadership

Organisations with a balanced representation of women and men in senior management report increased engagement & retention, better decision making, improved problem solving and greater creativity & innovation. This in turn leads to enhanced results and competitive advantage. For many organisations, development of the female talent pipeline is a key strategic priority.

Targeted development of female leaders & future leaders can be an important component to help your talented women progress. Businesses that have implemented our programmes cite an increased ability to attract female talent, as well as better rates of promotion amongst women.

Our dynamic Accelerate programme addresses women at all levels in the pipeline, from senior & middle managers, through first line managers, to graduates and juniors starting out. Our interactive, modular approach gives you flexibility to select relevant content for your specific outcomes. So, whether you’re looking for impact & influence for those starting out, career management for first line managers, or authentic leadership with vulnerability for those at a senior level, we can support your needs with any combination thereof.

Choose from 10 modules delivered in a variety of media, from face-to-face workshops to interactive video conferences. Build an impactful programme that can range from six days of face-to-face workshops spread over a six-month period, to a 2-hour intervention.

We invite you to take a deeper dive on each of the modules below and contact us to discuss how to create a programme that suits your audience, outcomes and budget.

Managers Supporting the Progression of Women

Managers have a crucial role in creating the conditions for talented women to succeed. To complement your gender initiative, our modules for male and female Managers address how to support directs who are participating in Accelerate, and how to support the progression of women more generally.

  • DARE to Develop
  • DARE to Achieve

    DARE to Achieve is a journey on a deep exploration of yourself, your vulnerabilities, strengths and possibilities. It combines peer coaching with practical tips and is often part of a longer action centred approach.

    Through a series of peer and self-feedbacks, delegates develop strength through understanding who they are and by turning up the “colour and volume” as needed. Our female programmes combine the concepts of authenticity with organisational savvy and great career plans.

    Delegates leave knowing how to grow personally and how to navigate practically. Additional models offer strategic tools that can be combined to create multiple day programmes.
