Develop the mindset, tools and network to accelerate your transition to senior leadership
Making the critical career transition to a senior leadership role can be a challenging experience. You need to adopt a more strategic mindset, re-think your leadership style and leverage your informal networks. For women leaders, the challenges can proliferate: underrepresentation, a lack of sponsors and networks, and implicit “male” leadership models can make it difficult to build credibility and achieve professional success.
Women in Leadership accelerates the transition of talented female executives to senior leadership roles, developing new mindsets, capabilities and strategies for growth. If you are a leader with 10 or more years managerial experience, two or three levels from a C-suite position, then this programme is for you.
Across an immersive 6-month blended learning journey, in a safe and supportive environment, you have the time to gain the confidence, knowledge and tools to make the transition to greater organisational impact, a bigger role and personal reinvention. Your line manager/sponsor forms an integral part of your journey, participating at key stages, to better understand your challenges and support and empower you to achieve your goals. Deep bonds are forged through extensive peer collaboration both virtually and in person, while your learning and inspiration continue through virtual electives offered months after the programme on campus.
