Leadership course for women

It is known that companies with both female and male managers achieve better results than companies with only men at the top. Yet female managers sometimes experience more resistance than their male colleagues, research shows. If you are too professional and businesslike, this is seen as strict, while feminine and empathetic is experienced as incompetent or naive. The trick is to find a good balance between your business side and your warmer, social side.

In the training ' Leadership for women', we work with how you can use your femininity and how you can still come across as a business person. This training makes you aware of your strengths and qualities, so that you can better position yourself as a female manager both inside and outside the company.


  • Make use of both your 'male' and 'female' side
  • Being assertive, standing up for your interests and above all not being too modest
  • Differences and similarities between the two sexes
  • Negotiating
  • Improve your communication skills
  • Recognising and using leadership styles
  • Setting and achieving goals
  • Motivational leadership
  • Gaining insight into your style of leadership
  • Delegating and controlling
  • Conflict Management
  • Developing employee commitment
  • Optimise team composition(s)
  • Group processes and their influence on your work situation
  • Dealing with employee resistance

Target group

  • You want to increase your effectiveness as a manager
  • You want to have a strong theoretical foundation on being a manager
  • You want to use your strength as a woman in your position
  • You are looking for practical experience: what is it like to manage (differently)?
  • You want to stand more firmly in your managerial shoes.

Working method

  • Customisation is our focus: through a telephone intake interview, the trainer makes an inventory of your personal learning goals. On this basis, the definitive programme of the training course is determined.
  • We believe that a safe training atmosphere is important, as you should feel comfortable experimenting with new knowledge and skills. We therefore pay ample attention to this.
  • We strongly believe in doing and experiencing, rather than talking about the content of trainings, which is why all our trainings are active in nature.
  • In order to guarantee the quality of the training, we apply a maximum group size of eight participants, so that we can guarantee the learning effect and efficiency.
