Strengths Optimisation: The Female Leader’s Formula for Success

Our whole careers we have been told what our weaknesses are, the importance of fixing them and how we need to be different to fit the model the business requires. Instead, it is time you understand your strengths and why they provide greater leverage for enhancing personal effectiveness and advancing your career.

Why we’ve got the solutions to workplace gender diversity wrong

As long as we continue to work on solutions to the symptom of ‘lacking gender diversity’ in the workplace and in senior roles we will continue to fail to fix the true problem. The way we work has changed. This workshop helps managers understand the need to create innovative solutions for the parenting experience, unique challenges in succession planning for women, and how to retain women in organisations.
