If you are a women in business who is looking for the next step up in their career then the award winning leadership and management training program run by Skills4 may just the what you have been looking for.
We are Skills4, a UK based award winning training and coaching company with a core focus on diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
We know that the balance truly is shifting and there is now more gender diversity initiatives and policies in place than there ever has been. Large UK businesses are waking up to the significant benefits that a diversified workforce can bring to the daily operations of the company and there are now more opportunities for women in business to advance than there ever has been.
But what does our Inclusive Leadership and Management Training program include and how would it be beneficial for women in business who are looking to progress up the career ladder?
More and more, this shift to a more diverse workforce requires the leaders and managers that can deomonstrate enhanced empathy and people management. Diverse thinking and collaboration skills that will produce more positive client relationships and business productivity.
Our Women in Leadership Training Courses cover the following:
Practical explanations and examples of affinity bias, attribution bias and confirmation bias are uncovered so that delegates understand how bias can play out at work in terms or employee hiring policies, performance reviews, allocation of work and the creation of homogeneous teams.
Gender Smart Communication Whilst there are more similarities than differences between genders, there are subtle differences (such as use of humour, attitude to conflict etc) which, if left unchecked can result in unnecessary misunderstandings, damaged relationships and reduced moral. As part of our Women in Leadership Training, participants will gain insights to enhance communication skills and produce more positive outcomes in this section.
What is my role as a line-manager/leader? Towards the end of the workshop, delegates are given case studies to check understanding and ensure they leave the session with improved knowledge, skills and confidence to lead and manage their teams.
These three core topics covered in our leadership training program will help you to
- Understand what is meant diversity and the relevant business case
- Understand how unconscious bias and stereotypes are created and maintained
- Be able to explain to others how unconscious bias can play out in the workplace and know what to do about it
- Know where to access unconscious bias tests after the session
- Develop enhanced communication skills and understand how to build better rapport
- Be better equipped to manage and inspire people to maximise results and improve staff engagement
- Understand their role and impact as leaders and managers and create individual action plans to improve behaviours and culture.
It is these qualities that help to define leaders and mark out those ready to take the next step on their career path. Our Leadership Training Program is ideal for businesses looking to promote within their own employee structure and those that want a key advantage to boost their chances of stepping up to management level.
