Women In Leadership
Powerful interventions to develop and retain women
in a corporate environment
Every company is different, yet many face a similar problem: how to accelerate the career progression of emerging female leaders while ensuring maximum retention?
Cohort-based leadership programmes – groups of women learning together over a prolonged period – are the most effective tool to solve this problem. Not only do the participants develop but this group of ‘formidable women’ has a multiple impact on the business:
- It signals the company’s intent in this space
- It increases the women’s visibility and networking ability
- It engages men into the company-specific debate
- It provides role models for younger women
Programmes have evolved considerably since our first one in 2005: they can be stand-alone or part of a broader leadership curriculum, local or global, with or without an accompanying business agenda, supported by additional coaching or not, etc.
