In addition to a digital badge, you will receive a Women in Leadership Certificate of Completion, a powerful credential from the top business school in Canada.

Program Content

In this program, women leaders will learn together about personal leadership effectiveness and leading strategically to implement bold visions. You’ll work individually with a coach to apply the results of a personal assessment to the situations that create or reduce your leadership energy. In small groups, your coach will help you experiment with different leadership behaviours and their impact, increasing your repertoire while remaining authentic to your sense of self. 

The program will then dive into strategic alignment, leading change, and leading others for long-term sustainable performance. Participants will look at their own contexts for leadership, and develop goals/targets and practical ideas for implementing change and enhancing performance back at home. 

Women in Leadership will explore insights and the latest research about gender, diversity, inclusion, and their implications for leadership, yourself, and your organization. We’ll look at systems and organizational cultures that empower a diverse workforce, and touch on the roles that women may choose to play in systems change. 

Upon your return to work, you’ll be inspired about your future, equipped with a personal agenda for your own leadership approach and post-program coaching from a senior executive coach to ensure you stay on track.
