Training Course:

Leadership for Technical Women

Leadership is not a position: it is a frame of mind. Once appointed to a leadership position, the journey through Maxwell’s five levels of leadership – based on position, relationships, performance, mentorship to others and reaching the pinnacle – begins. To become the inspirational leader who builds a loyal, high performance team requires skills, a positive attitude and supportive behaviour that can be cultivated. Hence, it is a choice.

The purpose of the two day programme is to offer leaders and potential leaders the opportunity to hone the skills and adopt an attitude that will support the delegate on her leadership journey.  Delegates of the programme will gain theoretical understanding of – and experience in – specific leadership skills.

Who Should Attend?

  • Women in leadership positions
  • Women being mentored for leadership positions
  • Women intending to become future leaders
