Emotional intelligence for women in Public Sector leadership

In this engaging workshop you will gain core leadership competencies to take your career and influence to the next level. Simple in concept, but deeply powerful in application, Authentic Leadership allows you to bring your whole self to work, rather than your ‘work self’, which translates into strong organisational benefits, including an increase of performance of up to 40%. This workshop will also give you the tools and techniques to create an inspired, aligned team and leverage your team members’ strengths to boost culture, high performance and maintain wellbeing with simple, practical and proven strategies.

 

Key takeaways

  • Implement the core concepts of Authentic Leadership
  • Understand how you ‘show up’ to build deeper trust and clarity as a leader
  • Feel more comfortable and confident in your leadership style and strategic direction
  • Align your team to collaboratively achieve next level results
  • Lift and maintain performance through times of change and disruption
  • Create a trusting and supportive environment to thrive through any situation

How to banish confidence killers & say goodbye to self-doubt

Silence your inner critic and make self-confidence a lifetime habit
This seminar will discuss how internal factors such as critical self-talk and rumination hurt our confidence. It will explore why the business of self-improvement is disproportionately directed at women while discussing what confidence is and its myths. There will be plenty of science-backed strategies that we can employ in our personal and professional lives. It will also explore how external factors such as bias, likeability traps, female rivalry, and the unequal division of household labour chip away at our confidence, while simultaneously blaming gender inequality on women’s “lack of confidence”.

 

Key takeaways

  • Turning the dial down on critical self-talk
  • How confidence myths influence our self-sabotaging behaviours
  • How to navigate and recognise external obstacles to our confidence
  • Strategies for women, workplaces, and allies to address broader structural factors
