Overview

 

All over the world, talented, ambitious women are being held back from achieving their potential at the top of organizations by a range of cultural, social, educational, and emotional barriers. The ILI Women’s Leadership Program has been designed to equip women with the career strategies and self-awareness that allow them to reach the highest levels within their organization. After attendance at the seminar, participants should leave with greater self-knowledge and greater confidence in their own abilities and leadership style. The seminar will equip participants to diagnose workplace situations, also to master powerful communication tactics, and to set a path for professional success.

The course will address the following questions: How can organizations innovate or solve complex problems if their leaders are all pressed from the same mould? How can they respond to the needs of their customers if they have no insight into half of the people who make up that customer base? How can we possibly hope to build a better world for everyone without drawing on everyone’s skills and experiences? Progressive governments and organizations have introduced well-meaning policies, but change is occurring at a slow speed. As with all complex problems, it’s going to take a range of approaches to address it.

As someone considering this program, you will have experience and will be responsible for leading others and making important decisions. As a middle-senior manager or executive, you may be moving through the organization or welcome an opportunity to re-examine your leadership reach. On this program you will be part of an international peer-group of participants working in a wide range of sectors from many regions across the world.

This seminar examines issues using policy, legal and commercial lenses to provide a strategic level understanding of the sustainable energy value chain.
