Women leadership program

Women leadership program

Meeting the challenges of today’s global workplace

Women face unique challenges in the workplace but they also add unique value and perspective. They shatter groupthink, improve communication dynamics, and reinvigorate companies in ways that make them more competitive. Research shows that companies with a critical mass of top-team gender diversity enjoy significantly better financial performance.

Women executives based internationally or who lead worldwide teams encounter specific dynamics and environments. 

Participants will enhance their leadership behaviors and cross-cultural communication skills, learn how to create high-performing teams, understand how to use and manage networks, develop as thoughtful leaders, drive innovation, and create an authentic leadership style.

Learning Methods

The learning process begins prior to the face-to-face session with an introductory webinar followed by an intensive e-learning session, which enables the participants to discover and understand the concepts and framework. This common, pre-acquired knowledge is then applied in the classroom through interactive lectures, class discussions and a case study. The output of the teamwork features a final presentation developed and based on the e-learning, the interactive face-to-face lectures, and the case study.
