What does it take for a woman to become a good leader? The answer, according to Meryl Streep, is a combination of “Grit and Grace”. She was referring to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton but the answer seems applicable regardless of what industry or sector you are working in.
This programme will help you feel more confident as a leader because it is built on the belief that everyone can learn to be a better leader, and there is no 'ideal' profile.
What past participants have said about the Programme:
“I've used the course content so much and it completely changed how I work in teams and work with other people, not just in work” Rebecca Russell
“Thank you so much for leading us through the fantastic Grit & Grace experience. The programme gave me the opportunity to recalibrate and make changes that were long overdue. I have changed job role after 30 years! Thank you again – I will be recommending the course to my colleagues and I hope that they get as much out of it as I did." Carol O'Boyle Policy & Legislation Advisor, Dept of Agriculture, NICS
“G&G is fantastic, it’s fun, informative and personally challenging! I attended the course at crossroads in my life and through positive discussions with peers on the course, and an improved understanding of “me” I gained the confidence and motivation to get the promotion I deserve. Take the plunge and do something for yourself…” Niamh Flynn, Head of Operations Transformation, Balfour Beatty CLG
"I would highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to have a better insight to their own strengths and weakness and how to build confidence and grow relationships."
"I found this course to be totally inspirational and changed my attitude to my work and made me reflect on my role in order to become better."
"I loved every minute of G&G, it was great spending time with like minded women, I feel I have grown in confidence, motivation and drive."
Overview of the Programme:
This highly engaging and participative programme has been purposefully designed to upskill women with the knowledge and behaviours necessary to confidently and successfully transition into leadership roles in the workplace.
The Grit & Grace programme explores the concept of leadership, through the lens of
“Grit” (described by the author Angela Duckworth as the ability to, “fall 7 times…pick yourself up 8”); and
“Grace” (described by psychologist Dr Miller Burke as, "the ability to mitigate discomfort and to project calmness and clarity even if you don’t feel it. It’s something I term ‘leading with grace”).
Over the duration of their Programme, participants will spend time unraveling “Who am I?”, as well as consider how their personal values, beliefs and behaviours impact their leadership identity and brand. As a result of their participation on the programme, each delegate will gain an insight into:
- Understanding their own and others’ personality and behavioural preferences (through the Emergenetics Psychometric tool) Each Profile will include full access to the Emergenetics+ mobile app
- Developing self-confidence and personal resilience
- Influencing and engaging others
- Leading self and others through change
This highly participative and engaging programme has been designed and delivered by the William J Clinton Leadership Institute in conjunction with Women in Business.
