1. Explore: self-paced preparation

Before the program begins, you will meet your program director and go through self-paced assignments that are designed to help you identify your key leadership challenge, and maximize program outcomes.

 

2. Reveal & Apply: face-to-face

Engage in a deeply, immersive experience over 3.5 days - designed to explore who you are and how you lead, strengthen key leadership skills and allow you to build strong connections with other women leaders from around the world. Put all you learn and experience into context through thought-provoking plenary sessions, giving you new insights and fresh perspectives.

Your personal coach will help you to consolidate your learnings within the context of your leadership challenge. This will help you to find clarity on how to move confidently onwards and upwards.

 

3. Fly: individual follow-up

3 months after the program, your personal coach will help you take stock of how far you’ve come, where you stand with your leadership challenge and ensure that you have what you need to reach new heights in your career and professional life.

 

Program covers key topics such as:

  • Your ability to communicate your strategy and vision and drive greater impact
  • Your assertiveness and your ability to effectively manage upwards
  • Your networking skills and how to build your professional community
  • Your self-confidence and self-belief so you can perform at your best
  • Your influence and visibility within your organization to create professional opportunities

Throughout the program, you will take part in wide-ranging and challenging discussions, intensive group assignments and experiential excercises. The program design gives ample opportunities for rich interaction with peers, faculty and professional coaching.
