Why Choose this Training Course?

This interactive training course offers a unique opportunity for emerging women leaders to take a balanced insight into:

… the reality of the legendary The Glass Ceiling that curtails promotion
… the mechanisms for managing within a Glass Ceiling tradition
… and ‘tools’ for influencing cultural change at work.

The term "glass ceiling" refers to the sometimes-invisible barrier to success that many women come up against in their careers. Accepting the Glass Ceiling as unbreakable cannot be an option. The percentage of women in work is increasing - 80% across Europe. High rates of participation, as well as high rates of employment, are key measures of women’s status. Key is high educational attainment which will help close pay gaps women experience globally. Attitudes, skills and knowledge, are especially relevant for women in work.  Grasping responsibility, marshalling people, and innovating creatively and strategically is the new ethos.

This training course will feature:

  • Understanding stereotypical views of women’s roles in society and business
  • What women want: overcoming fears about self and achievements.
    • Self: Learning Styles, self-awareness, self-discipline, and personal ‘gravitas’
    • SWOT Strengths/Weaknesses/Opportunities/Threat
  • Empowerment: responsibility; marshalling people; innovating creatively and strategically
  • Closing the gap: attitudes and skills Toolbox, and Execution Roadmap - the way ahead
