Increase influence, professional agility and charisma

Leadership is not a hierarchical position, it is an approach. Women who have positions of responsibility in companies can develop this type influential behavior. Taking a step back, exchanging with peers and acquiring key operational techniques will enable you to gain in efficiency and confidence.

You can choose from 8 dynamic workshops to develop your professional agility, adopt a leadership approach and rethink your current practices by using improvisation techniques.


Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it's amazing what they can accomplish.Sam Walton


The program will enable you to:

  • Trust in your strengths and boost your career development
  • Heighten your awareness of personal obstacles and practice overcoming them with your peers
  • Group motivation: this workshop is not just about training as it focuses on co-development, sharing the same culture, know-how and “secrets”
