For emerging female leaders looking to grow into an executive level role
The Great Leaders Are Made (GLAM™) Program for Women in Leadership is Australia’s most successful leadership training program specifically designed to empower current and future female leaders with real world best practice leadership skills. In addition we focus on further development of, self-awareness, self-leadership, career and your own brand leadership management skills.
Find out more about the program, the reason it exists, its impact and long term benefit from program director and facilitator, Avril Henry and lead facilitator, Jan Dent in this video, and watch the webinar with Avril Henry which breaks down program structure and content.
Since 2011, of the 700+ attendees of the GLAM program over 50% were promoted within their current organization, while many other attendees were considered for future promotion or joined new employers at a more senior level, within 1 year of completing the program. Practical development and empowerment of women in your organization for senior leadership roles is an excellent opportunity to maximize returns of your investment in your people whilst also creating a competitive global advantage. Increasingly, this is a compliance issue with the ASX and AICD requiring companies to increase the number of women to their executive teams and boards.
Given the current pandemic conditions and the uncertainty around when we will be in a position to resume in-person training, we have made the decision to offer a VIRTUAL ONLY delivery of GLAM for calendar year 2020.
The new program format will still run over three months, meeting over six 4-hour sessions which will incorporate breaks and interactive discussions using zoom meeting rooms for group exercises. The session themes will remain unchanged, with interactive exercises during the session, and attendees encouraged to participate actively throughout the program and undertake home work in between.
All WiBF members are encouraged to register for the next intake, commencing Monday 24th August 2020.
The 2020 program workshops will run from 11:00am-3:00pm AEST on the following dates:
BLOCK 1: INFLUENCING THROUGH COMMUNICATION AND LISTENING
PART 1: Monday, 24th August | PART 2: Thursday, 3rd September
