This specialist program focuses on the nuances of leadership for women working in STEM and Security industries specifically.​


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.

Public Sector

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!
