How to be a powerful woman (and still be liked)
Women in Leadership Programme Masterclass
“Beautifully balanced approaches, tips and techniques that seek to form collaborations and avoid polarisations. The approaches encourage us to be authentic in speaking our truth without alienating others or sacrificing relationships”
– Anneke Loubser, Human Works Matters
Are you uncomfortable with being seen as powerful?
If you are not at ease with power it will be impossible to “take your place at the table” and make a positive impact.
Maybe you’ve had bad experiences with power – you’ve been on the receiving end of “power over” rather than “power with” – feeling “done to” rather than engaged.
Change your mind about power and you change your life.
Harvard psychologist and acclaimed TED speaker Amy Cuddy talks about the difference between “social power” which comes from formal position and authority, and “personal power” which comes from our values, sense of purpose, presence and willingness to collaborate – i.e. “power with” rather than “power over”.
The good news is that whatever your job title is, you have the capacity to develop your personal power.
In this powerful half day Masterclass you will learn to:
- Understand what power really is at its heart (you’ll be surprised by this)
- Move confidently towards power and the limelight rather than hesitating and holding back
- Exercise power without compromising your ethics
- Be a role model for others of “power with” that empowers others rather than “power over” which diminishes them
- Get more done with less effort because you motivate others to want to come along with you.
