Empowering Women – East

Day one & two: 30-31 March, 2020 - Ipswich
Day three: 9 June, 2020 - Stansted

This programme is anchored in giving you the confidence to be who you are, embracing the diversity you can bring to the leadership team and helping you deliver this skilfully.

Encouraging you to face challenges that hold you back, you can use the tools, techniques, insights and confidence you gain from this programme to go back into the workplace with enhanced self-confidence and determination.

With deliberate honing of your leadership approach and tactics to influence others and make a change.

Day 1 & 2 (30th & 31st March)

Day 3 (9th June)

The programme comprises a series of three one-day workshops, coaching, mentoring and group project work over three months, facilitated by expert leadership coaches and trainers.

Leaders who have undertaken an Empowering Women programme have the chance to share their thinking and learning together. Members actively contribute to the alumni network through sharing and presenting their work, participating in learning opportunities and supporting colleagues who are participating in the programme.

 

Part one (day one): Discovering yourself

Covering a range of topics including recognising the importance of people; building honest relationships; developing a more productive dialog with yourself; and defining your value proposition.

 

Part two (day two): Thinking of others

Focusing on a range of topics including creating a group of acquaintances and associates; effective communication; developing your objectivity and reducing your subjective behaviour; and using office politics positively.

 

Part three: One-to-one coaching session

Following the workshop you will have a session with an experienced coach on a challenge or goal of your choice, with particular emphasis on what is important for you and your future.

 

Part four: Final group session at one of our conferences

Your group will review what was learnt during the previous workshop and coaching sessions, before agreeing and planning the best way to take things forward.

 

Part five: Graduation ceremony

Join other Leadership Academy graduates at our annual President’s Conference dinner as your spectacular efforts are recognised.

Requirements

This programme is suitable for any level of leader/ manager in an organisation; in fact a broad spectrum adds value to the whole group. The range of participants to date include junior team leaders and project leaders, through to heads of service.

The assumptions made about participants are:

  • ​Some experience as a team leader/manager (or about to take on such a role in the coming months)
  • Enthusiasm to learn and contribute fully with a group
  • A strong desire to be proactive about change and career progression
  • A desire to make a bigger difference and greater impact in their leadership role

A commitment to the whole programme is mandatory. Participants must have good communication skills and be willing to contribute with enthusiasm and energy. Outside of the workshop modules, there will be some requirement to engage in the coaching and mentoring sessions (via phone/skype), as well as collaborating online with others in the group during the programme.

​The programme is designed to minimise travel costs and time away from the office. Course materials, refreshments and lunch are included. Travel and any accommodation required is the participant’s responsibility.

​The course attendees will be invited to attend our annual two-day President’s Conference to take part in a graduation ceremony during the evening dinner.
