Module 1: Branding Yourself

You already have a brand… but is it the one you want? This workshop focuses on helping participants create the leadership brand they want and how to best project it to others. We will look at what a brand is, how it is developed, and what behaviours you can change to re-brand yourself.

Module 2: Positively Confident

Our confidence is often limited by our own thinking.  Whether you think you do not deserve to be in your role, or you feel like your accomplishments are merely a result of luck, it is hard to overcome this self-doubt, also known as the “Imposter Syndrome”. In this workshop, participants will work through this syndrome, discussing the limits of perfectionism and setting goals to help drive their internal confidence and overtake feelings of inadequacy.

Module 3: Developing Leadership Presence

You always know when a leader walks in the room. They seem to have an “air” about them. They carry an internal confidence that you can feel and they bring energy to the room and those in it. How do they do that? It’s called presence. And it’s a skill that you can develop. Projecting presence will help others see you as a leader and will be more apt to listen to your ideas. This workshop will take participants through the key elements of presence such as projecting energy and speaking with conviction. Each participant will also receive individual coaching on their presence.

Module 4: Handling Challenging Situations

As women, we are often faced with situations where we must assert ourselves. It might be being heard at a meeting, asking for a promotion, delivering a tough performance review or saying no to non-value add activities. These situations, and more, are prevalent in a male dominated industry. This module will provide participants with the skills to present themselves as confident leaders in all of these situations.

Program will be invoiced in full upon registration.  Refunds will only be provided if program is cancelled due to low registration.  Once the program has started, registration is not transferrable.  Certificate of Completion will only be issued to a participant that completes all four modules in the program.

Travel expenses incurred to participate are the responsibility of the participant and will not be reimbursed in any part by WIA-Canada.
