THROUGH THE GLASS CEILING
LEADERSHIP AND COMMUNICATION SKILLS
A DYNAMIC AND PRACTICAL 1-DAY SEMINAR FOR WOMEN
MANAGERS IN BOTH THE PRIVATE AND PUBLIC SECTORS
As women make their way toward top positions and centre-stage roles in both public and private sector organisations, companies are
under increasing pressure to bolster their boards with independent “heavyweights” and these are increasingly women.
Women bring a creative spark, intelligence, personality, professional ability and motivation to senior roles, but there are still constraints
on career progression, both organisational and personal.
This fast-paced and highly interactive program considers some of these constraints and will discuss ways to address them. A powerful
and dynamic seminar, it focuses on communications, management skills, career planning, work-life balance and leadership
development for mid- to senior level women managers.
BY ATTENDING THIS SEMINAR YOU WILL LEARN:
• The seven things women do that keep them from getting ahead
• The five top tips from the world’s top corporate women
• The 8 universal laws of leadership
• The best ways to create your own successful support system and increase the effectiveness of your networks
• The keys to creating high-perfomance work teams
• The art of coaching and counselling staff
• The top 10 reasons why managers fail and how to avoid them
• How to avoid getting trapped in the ‘Superwoman Syndrome’
• How to balance work and life and make the most of your time away from the office
• The keys to communicating more effectively
• The top 10 communications hurdles
……and much more!
This could be one of the most empowering days in your career!
Above all, you will have the opportunity to interact with other senior women who face the same challenges, confront the same feelings
and share many of the same goals as you do -all in a supportive, fun and dynamic environment.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
The programme is specifically designed for women executives who are, or will be soon, the rising stars in their organisations and who
are looking for ways to take on their next career challenge. You will probably have been in your career for at least ten years and will be
in a management position, probably supervising a team of people. The seminar is equally relevant to those in the public or private
sectors, and to women entrepreneurs who are running their own businesses.
