WORKSHOPS

LEADING WITH STRENGTHS + DRIVING CAREER SUCCESS

Utilising the Gallup StrengthFinder 2.0, each participant will identify, own and use their unique strengths. We explore how participants currently use their strengths, and how a strengths-based approach will enhance future practice. We discuss implications for teams, performance management and team dynamics.

Planning and taking action are critical to achieving career success. We look at the elements of career success: including branding, networks and strategies. Participants will create a career map, and take away an action-oriented plan. Take away the inspiration and motivation to be the best that you can be, and reach for what they want.

We draw from the latest neuroscience research to explore how our brains respond to the fast-paced change of today’s business environment. We introduce simple and practical tools to maximise brain functionality.

These tools enable participants to stimulate the best in breakthrough thinking for innovation from their peers, direct reports and clients.

Success can depend on quickly building and sustaining working relationships. Working collaboratively is easier when we have the skills to spot tensions and resolve them harmoniously. We share techniques for surfacing issues and generating innovative resolutions.

STRATEGIC THINKING AS A LEADER + GROUP DYNAMICS & CONFLICT TRANSFORMATION

NETWORK POWER FOR CAREER SUCCESS + LIFE THRIVING

Research shows that professional networks lead to more job and business opportunities, broader and deeper knowledge, improved capacity to innovate, faster advancement, and greater status and authority. We introduce strategies to help you build your networking plan and build your confidence as networker. We share ideas and inspiration to make networking a meaningful and integral part of professional life.

Women leaders and managers have to navigate a particular set of challenges in corporate life. This workshop explores strategies for physical and mental health, and for creating the work-life balance that will support their sustained success.

In this workshop we examine what additional skills are required as we move up through management and leadership levels. Participants take away a clear idea of their strengths and development needs as a leader, and practical ‘next steps’ for their leadership journey.

Develop your personal brand for the advancement of your career and development as a leader. Personal branding is about making a full-time commitment to defining yourself as a leader and how this shapes the way you serve others. We explore strategies for managing your personal brand as a trademark.

LEADERSHIP IN ACTION + DEFINE YOUR GOALS

THE ART OF STORYTELLING + PRESENCE & STATUS

In this powerful session we look at participants’ own leadership journey, the strengths they have worked with, and their ‘resilience moments’. Walk away with a powerful leadership brand story and clear statements of what you Can, Will and Do as leaders.

We look at our ease, authenticity and power in connecting with others. Executive presence is the external manifestation of deep inner conviction, confidence, insight and the ability to handle unexpected situations. This is an action packed and participatory session, challenging participants to be their uniquely powerful and influential self.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

“As a woman in a mostly male environment, I can be leading men in their sixties and I know it can be a little challenging for them to have a female boss. The Women Leading program reinforced being yourself through its strengths-based leadership approach.”

Zena Mehanna, Station Officer, Fire & Rescue NSW
Tracey Spindler

The big take away for me from the Women Leading program was the focus on ‘strengths-based leadership’, that was pretty potent.

Tracy Spindler, Station Officer, Fire & rescue NSW

“Not only will the Women Leading Program get you excited at what it is possible to accomplish, you are going to meet and learn from some fantastic people – coaches, thought leaders, peers.”

Helen Wiseman, Executive Coach

“The program is something different; practical, enjoyable and enlightening at the same time. It offers a valuable opportunity to do a self-analysis, help me to understand my strength and clarify my career growth aspiration, something that I often take lightly. I learned that in order to grow, I have to lead myself, take charge, make things happen, and work on my ‘brand’.”

Ardina, Sustainability Manager

“Over the course of the program I have seen shifts in the kinds of conversations women have, their levels of confidence, the initiatives they take with things like Paying it Forwards. This all applies to me as well! The program is inspiring and has given me confidence, toolkits, strengths, a career map and extended my network.”
