About this course
What do you think of when you hear these names: Angela Merkel, Malala Yousafzai, Indira Gandhi, Catherine the Great, Mother Teresa? Personally, such words as "strong", "unshakable", "inspiring", "leader" immediately come to my mind.


But who are women leaders?
How are they different from ordinary people?
And most importantly, can you become one?

First of all, leadership means a style of thinking that helps to see opportunities in places where no one is looking for them. The leader is confident and powerful. These qualities help them bring people together and effectively manage them to make a big idea a reality. Anyone can develop leadership qualities. Modern research confirms that 70% of leadership skills are formed based on experience, not heredity. In other words, leaders are not born, but made. And most importantly, what can you do to become one? The desire and readiness to develop and grow are key success factors for novice leaders. Such willingness is manifested in the desire of a person to define themselves as a leader. Do you have this resolve? Then our course will help you with the rest!

You will find out what leadership is like today, explore leadership styles and get tips for developing one of your own. You will see how to fight off the fear of risk, study role models and mentoring. We will provide you with a guide on building self-confidence. Moreover, you will understand the importance of education for leaders, and how to start planning your career. During the training, you will learn how to balance work and personal life as a woman in a leadership position.

We will tell you what rules you need to follow when networking, and where to look for useful acquaintances. You will analyse strategies you can use to to become a strong female leader, special leadership exercises, and the SHIFT leadership system. You will discover how to build a personal brand that will help you take your leadership to the next level. The acquired knowledge will help you set clear goals, build a professional network, constantly learn and grow to build a successful career.
Course structure

Lesson 1. Women's leadership: a new concept in business

Many people imagine the leader as a tough and assertive person, always a man. Yet now, women are entering the modern game of management, and leadership gets more effective behaviour patterns. In this lesson, you will learn what leadership is like today. You will explore different leadership styles and receive tips for developing one of your own.

Additionally, you will discover how to create a trust system at work and use the Descartes square, which will help you work through the barriers on your way to leadership. You will receive a questionnaire, which you can use to see which leadership qualities you already have and which ones you should develop.

Lesson 2. A woman on her way to leadership

There are many female leaders. For example, Hillary Clinton, Marissa Mayer, Ginni Rometty, Sheryl Sandberg, Susan Wojcicki. They are bringing business corporations, government, academic and other organisations to the next level. They show other women their capabilities and strength. But how did their leadership journey begin? This lesson focuses on the difficulties one can face on the path to leadership. You will learn what will help you overcome the challenges ahead. You will see how to get rid of the fear of risk, consider the benefits of working with a mentor, and receive recommendations for developing self-confidence. Furthermore, you will understand the importance of education for leaders and how to start planning your career.

Additionally, we will show you how to keep your success diary and draw up a career plan. We will provide you with the material that will help you fight stereotypes.

Lesson 3. How to strike a work-life balance

In this lesson, you will learn how to strike a balance between work and personal life. If after hearing the phrase "work-life balance" you immediately think that it's a joke or myth, know that you are not alone.

We are all familiar with this routine whether you are a CEO or just starting your career, have a family or not. Everyone has their own difficulties and worries and it seems that you can never find time for everything at once.

Finding a sense of balance is not a joke or a myth, but an integral part of maintaining vitality. The dilemma is that there is too much to be done. You can’t do everything, but you also cannot cope with the alternative.

Additionally, you will learn how to make a wheel of life balance and receive a daily planner template.

Lesson 4. Networking and negotiations. Strategies of women who are successful in networking

Networking is an indispensable tool for establishing social ties. It means forming business connections, which includes the search for new acquaintances to solve one's problems and reap benefits. It is difficult to overestimate its capabilities.

For example, according to the six handshake rule, you can get to the president of your country through a chain of mutual acquaintances. In this lesson, you will learn what rules you need to follow when networking, and where to look for useful acquaintances.

In the additional materials, you will find an example of a business card design. Furthermore, you will understand how best to arrange a list of your business acquaintances.

Lesson 5. Developing leadership skills

If you want to be a leader as a woman, many factors are out of your control. Yet, there is a way to get to the top! You need to become the best at what you do. Whether you're a small business owner, team leader, self-employed, or temporarily unemployed, you still need to take steps to become the best version of yourself. That is why we will dedicate this lesson to strategies that will help you become a strong female leader. You will also learn special exercises for developing leadership skills and study the SHIFT leadership system.

Additionally, you will learn the nine rules of a female leader. We have prepared a reflection diary template for you, which you will find in the additional materials.

Lesson 6. Creating and promoting a personal brand

The issue of personal branding remains relevant for female entrepreneurs as they still have to self-define themselves in a world of gender stereotypes. For women, a powerful personal brand can open doors to new business and career opportunities. Your abilities are unique, and you need to draw up an individual plan to develop them. In this lesson, I will show you in detail how to create it. You will find out how to build a personal brand that will help you take your leadership to the next level.

In the additional materials, you will receive a leadership plan template and a cheat sheet for female leaders.
