Learn strategies to overcome organisational gender-biases in this workshop from Adrian Kirk.
Being a leader is not a gender-specific role. Having presence at the table and a voice of authority is not about gender but about believing you have a right to be heard.
However, from Fleet Street to the City, fintech to the New Media, many organisations are male heavy at the top and gender biases are still prevalent. Geared towards women established in their careers and looking to take the step into leadership in the near future, this workshop teaches attendees to use their mind, physical presence and voice to overcome those biases and cultivate status, gravitas and authority without resorting to gendered stereotypes. You will learn to lead from the front, being seen and being heard.
During the course you will:
- Discuss the power of internal dialogue and look to develop a strong sense of self-worth, personal value and your right to be a leader.
- Explore the importance posture plays in influencing personal mood, and therefore a sense of your ‘right’ to be in the room or at the table.
- Look at how subtle shifts in physicality refine how you are seen in the eyes of others.
- Understand the link between emotional state and breathing to ensure calmer responses in key moments.
- Explore how to create a voice of authority
- Play with the rhythm of language to draw audiences in so they feel connected with you as a speaker.
