Women in leadership

Did you know that less than a quarter of board directors are female? (1) Only 1 in 4 start-ups are found by women (2) and the difference between men and women’s average full-time weekly earnings is 16 per cent.(3). For those reasons, women need every edge they can get to address workplace inequality.

Women in Leadership Training Overview


Great communication skills are one of the major keys to a successful working relationship with colleagues and employees. A study by ‘leaders in partnership’ revealed that in the workplace, men tend to control the conversation 75% of the time. While it's a stereotype that women are natural communicators, in the workplace, they sometimes face specific communication and leadership challenges. 

By understanding gender differences in communication, the impact of body language and the factors that attract and hold a listener's attention, women can learn to successfully communicate with even the toughest of crowds.

This women in leadership training workshop will assist participants to find their voice, identify and build their strengths whilst also equipping them with the skills and tools required to address any weaknesses and become a more effective communicator and leader demonstrating confidence, composure and credibility.
