I’ve reflected on my leadership style, learnt more about current leadership thinking. I’ve had space in which to reflect rather than react and this has already helped me improve things in the workplace – either through improved self-confidence, better active listening skills or understanding what type of leader I need to be.

From day 1 I was reminded of my values, defined my purpose and felt I was already more confident about my leadership. I learnt the value of re-framing, considered limiting beliefs and the value of coaching. I also enjoyed learning about my resilience, reflecting on my triggers and how to manage these. I’ve always been able to reflect on where I need to grow – but now I have a structured approach to this and a whole toolbox of frameworks and information. Not to mention a fabulous network!

Specialist STEM Women Who Lead Mastermind

Women in STEM experience increased barriers to retention, leadership development and success. This is typically due to a complex and systemic web of cultural and procedural factors, underpinned by STEM disciplines being primarily male-dominated. These barriers impact women’s participation, resilience, and self-belief in leadership skills, which perpetuate as barriers themselves.

Aya Leadership’s Women Who Lead STEM Mastermind has been developed to specifically address and negate these barriers. It has been tailored for emerging and established STEM women to allow them to develop confidence and reach their potential as experts and leaders. The program nurtures important protective factors for STEM women, including:

  • Developing as a leader
  • Understanding self
  • Having visibility and voice
  • Resilience
  • Navigating unconscious bias
  • Building resource networks and mentoring

This specialist STEM focused program contains the same content, learning objectives and learning outcomes as the Women Who Lead Mastermind. However it is delivered through a STEM lens, with a focus on the differences and nuances of leadership in a STEM context.​

As a very experienced leader at a crossroads in my career, I was exploring transition in my professional life.

The Aya Leadership Women Who Lead Mastermind provided me the space to reflect, learn and discover the next steps in my professional journey. It provided the tools and frameworks to refine my personal leadership purpose. I was immersed into a journey of self-discovery and generative action planning for how to lead and live a more purpose centred life. I left the course with a stronger sense of determination and a way forward to achieve traction on new ideas.

Susan’s ability to quickly and authentically establish a relationship with every person in the room allows her to build trust and confidence with her participants and clients. Her application of theory to challenging practical situations, her wealth of experience and knowledge and her ability to access a network of leaders makes Aya Leadership stand out as a preferred women in leadership organisation.
