From a gender and leadership perspective, the programme focuses on identifying behavioural patterns and unconscious biases, which sometimes are powerful, yet invisible, barriers to women’s advancement. Focus will also be on the diversity and gender dynamics of groups with the purpose of teaching the participants to navigate in their organisations/teams, thus enhancing their business influence. The second main theme of leading women is personal leadership. The participants will be encouraged to identify and connect with their higher leadership purpose, and they are offered a practical toolbox to strengthen their personal presence. In this connection, the programme seeks to strengthen the participants’ impact through verbal and non-verbal communication – as an easy way through their challenges as leaders. The learning method is a mixture of lectures by faculty and guest speakers, classroom and group discussion and experiential training session with creative, physical, and mental exercises.
"The course Leading Women gave me tools to become a better and more confident version of myself”- Shellie Boudreau, Ass. Professor, AAU and Leading Women participant 2017
“Leading Women is a 3 days eye-opening programme that gives you the chance to connect to an impressive network of women.” Poonam Rihel, Director, Global Safety, Novo Nordisk A/S
Copenhagen Business School Executive is committed to gender balance aiming at empowering women through education, mentoring and networking. As a participant on the Leading Women course you will enjoy three days in an inspiring learning environment providing you with a clearer understanding of the challenges that female leaders are facing when taking up senior positions as well as get the opportunity to step back and address your personal challenges and opportunities in a safe environment of peers that encourages personal reflection and development.
Leading Women participants are offered to work with a mentor. The mentor programme consists of four individual mentor meetings, scheduled at your and your mentor’s convenience after the programme. The mentoring will enhance learning and programme overall take-aways and give you a framework within which you can promote your career and personal development. The CBS Executive mentors have experience from board memberships or top executive positions.
"I have the pleasure of being a mentor for talented women at CBS Executive’s programme. At different stages in their careers, from different companies and with individual professional challenges. Their feedback to me has confirmed that with a relatively limited time invested, you can support talents growing their careers simply by asking the right reflection questions and sharing your own experiences. Best thing is that it is a huge inspiration for the mentor as well." - Anja Hasselbalch, HR Director, Philips Lighting Nordics
If you wish to take advantage of mentor sessions, this can be arranged for an additional fee of DKK 3,000 / EUR 404 – excl. VAT
The Leading Women programme is designed for managers, team leaders or high potential employees in public and private companies or non-profit organisations around the world. Participants are from a wide array of industries, disciplines, managerial backgrounds, countries, and cultures.
