Women are known to be outstanding at networking, innovation and building strong relationships. However, within most organisations, many women face challenges arising from issues around personal impact, confidence and self-presentation.
Our Personal Impact Course for Business Women will tackle perceived lack of confidence and unassertive behaviours, which are a common block for women in business. On the basis that our behaviour influences the response we get, we explore those behaviours which can usefully help you look and feel more confident. We often use techniques used by professional performers, which can be powerful for unblocking old habits and releasing new behaviours.
Why women only? The presence of women-only creates an atmosphere of openness where different issues are shared and guards are lowered. Previous participants have said they have benefited hugely from this safe atmosphere where they can try out new behaviours. We in no way encourage an ‘anti-men’ approach, we focus solely on maximising women’s business impact.
