McKinsey found one of the common pipeline pain points for women is languishing in middle management. This is a 3-day Leadership Summit to reduce the number of women who get stuck in middle management. Without this intervention organisations will not have sufficient numbers ready to populate short lists and promote to executive roles.
We find at this middle management level women are most likely to get stuck in an “attainment trap” whereas they need to be displaying “leadership potential”. We help participants build personal brands, improve their communication skills understand the power of networking and the importance of recruiting sponsors. We also help them to question underlying assumptions in strategic and financial plans. This is a practical programme and participants leave with a 3-year career plan, which is followed up with a 6 month coaching call.
Suitable participants for this programme are women that are in ‘middle management’ and whose employers believe they have the potential to undertake an executive role. Individual candidates must be open to future promotion even if they do not currently feel fully equipped or confident.
