The leadership program you’ve been waiting for
Business Chicks has worked with our partners the Centre of Leadership Advantage (CLA) to bring you LEAD; a program committed to helping women on their leadership journey.
Under LEAD, we’ve created two cutting-edge leadership programs, EMERGING and EXECUTIVE, with all the usual magic of Business Chicks wrapped around them to equip women with the skills, tools and community they need to lead with impact.
LEAD EMERGING and LEAD EXECUTIVE are immersive programs delivered by some of the country’s best leadership experts and organisational psychologists.
Each program is aimed at different levels of female leaders within your organisation and can be tailored to your unique organisational culture and priorities. These world-class programs have been based not only on best-practice leadership development, but also reflect the specific priorities women shared with us through our research. We also know that women want to learn in a dynamic environment – not a traditional classroom-based training exercise; this is a leadership program women will want to be part of.
Wrapped around CLA’s content is the warmth and connection of the Business Chicks community. So, as well as learning the tools and skills needed to be a successful leader, participants will be welcomed into a community to support them too; because we know how truly important that is.
Designed to support mid to senior female leaders. Explores Self-Insight, Leading with Impact, Leading in Context, and Defining my Leadership Legacy.
This program is for you if:
- You are a mid-senior executive and have been leading a team of people for an extended period of time or run your own business.
- You would like to understand more about yourself, your leadership style, and your impact on others.
- You would like to build further on your established capabilities and hone your skills around influence, purpose and strategy.
- You are looking to connect and learn with inspiring female leaders from a range of industries, backgrounds and experiences.
Understand your drivers and values, how others view your leadership, and how to leverage your strengths. Participants gain important insight about themselves as leaders, via powerful psychometric tools and 1:1 coaching with experienced leadership coaches and psychologists.
Leading with Impact
Providing leaders with the skills for thinking ahead (anticipating future opportunities and challenges, and forming a perspective on what needs to happen now); as well as achieving results through others (influencing and collaborating effectively).
Leading in Context
Leaders at this level play a critical role by understanding purpose in their organisation, and connecting the work of individuals to organisational strategy. How do I translate strategy in meaningful ways, that will engage and align the efforts of those in my team?
Defining my Leadership Legacy
Posing critical, personal questions to each individual: What is the effect I want to create? How do I contribute to change in positive ways? What commitments will I make to myself and others?
Designed to support aspirational and emerging female leaders. Explores Self Discovery, Influencing with Impact, Adaptive Mindset and Leveraging Networks.
This program is for you if:
- You have recently moved into a leadership role or have aspirations of leading a team in the near future
- You would like to improve your overall self-awareness by understanding more about your style, preferences and behaviours.
- You are looking to build capability around influencing others and developing, maintaining and leveraging networks in genuine and collaborative ways.
- You would love to network with like-minded emerging female leaders from a range of industries, backgrounds and experiences.
- You would like to build on the foundation of your leadership skills for now, and set yourself up for ongoing success as a future leader.
Through valuable psychometric tools, participants have the opportunity to explore their individual motives and values, what matters most to you, how your behaviours and beliefs might differ to others and how you can use self-awareness as both motivation and as a source of resilience.
Influencing with Impact
Psychology can tell us a lot about the power of persuasion, and in this part of Lead Emerging you’ll learn the practical skills and tips for influencing others in authentic, inspiring and highly effective ways.
Drawing on leading global research, learn how the mindset we adopt impacts the way we embrace opportunities, learn from experiences, overcome challenges and adapt to change. Lessons also on how to coach and develop this mindset in those around us.
Networks aren’t only about growing your career or your profile, they are critical to how stuff gets done in organisations. Knowing how to develop, maintain and leverage networks in genuine and collaborative ways is key to effective leadership.
“It’s the best Leadership Development program I think I’ve ever done. Bringing it back to you as a leader, and working on how you can build on your strengths rather than trying to change who and what you are was really refreshing.”
“I’d highly recommend the LEAD program for any emerging leaders looking to build their confidence, connect with others with similar experiences and enhance their impact as a female leader in their business.”
“My executive coaching experience has been inspiring and refreshing. It has brought me back into alignment with my core purpose and how I am going to continue to successfully lead my team.”
“Our facilitators were flawless, bringing warmth, professional insight and connection to the room which helped our group discuss the un-discussables much more quickly. The program helped me reflect on my own leadership style and challenged me to face difficulties I’d been experiencing with burnout and boundary management with my team.”
“The content was so easy to digest, tough topics that were broken down. I can’t stop talking about how much I gained from the experience. Thank you to all.”
