ASPIRE: Women’s Leadership Development Programme

Eight half day workshops over four months
Thursday afternoons, starting 7 August 2014

Diversity at the top leadership table correlates positively with better organisational performance, so why are more women not in senior leadership roles?
This challenge exists worldwide. In response, many organisations are implementing targeted initiatives to develop their women leaders and to address the particular challenges faced by women in their leadership journey.

The Aspire programme recognises the differences for women in their path towards the top table. It focuses on areas most likely to hold women back and equips them with new skills and tools to address internal and external barriers head-on.
Aspire will equip you with frameworks and tools to stand confidently in your own space as a leader and provide a platform for you to progress your career. You will have the opportunity to increase your confidence, impact and effectiveness as a leader. Your organisation will gain a more confident, resilient, focused and effective manager.

Benefits for you:
 increased confidence in who you are as a leader and the value of your contribution
 increased clarity of purpose and intent
 greater influence, impact and profile
 better relationships with your colleagues
 improved wellbeing and resilience
 enhanced career prospects.

Benefits for your organisation:
 increased productivity
 improved staff engagement
 increase in credible female applicants for senior roles
 increased number of female leaders as role models
 greater diversity in the leadership team, contributing to improved decision-making
 healthier group dynamic in leadership team

Aspire enables current and potential women leaders to step into the driving seat of their leadership journey, no longer constrained by unhelpful limiting beliefs. They are then able to make deliberate explicit choices about how they want to live their lives and the difference they want to make through their leadership.
“Fear is at the root of so many barriers that women face,” says Sheryl Sandberg in her challenging book Lean In. “What would you do,” she asks, “if you weren’t afraid?”
Building Confidence has been cited as the biggest single enabler to women fulfilling their leadership potential, and is just one aspect of this transformational programme
