Whilst there has been increasing visibility of successful female leaders in organisations, a turbulent economy, political instability, and global challenges are in danger of eroding gains made by women over recent years. Female directorships on FTSE100 and FTSE250 boards have increased however, there remains a lack of progress into executive roles. The development of a female leadership pipeline remains a critical challenge for organisations.

As a result of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, a call for greater focus on the triple bottom line of profit, people and planet and the advancement of purpose-driven leadership, there is an increasing need for leaders to be ‘agents of change’, ensuring organisations are focused on the greater good, rather than solely the ‘bottom line’.

Addressing the dual need to develop the female leadership pipeline and develop purpose-driven leaders, this course prepares female leaders to be successful agents of change and transformational, purpose-driven leaders.

Building on our successful Women in Leadership programme, Nottingham Business School are launching a short course Women as Transformational Leaders. Starting on 18th April 2024 this 3-day short course is designed for female leaders in organisations across sectors with at least 3 years of leadership experience who want to develop their capability to be a purpose driven leader and agent of change. Masterclasses, workshops, activities, and peer discussions, will explore topics such as:

  • The rise of purpose driven leadership
  • Women as transformational leaders and agents of change
  • Your leadership identity
  • Your purpose, vision, values, and signature strengths
  • Strategic management
  • Shaping culture
  • Sensemaking
  • Strategic decision making
  • Engaging others
  • Inclusive leadership
  • Coaching for success
  • Building strategic relationship
  • Influence and impact.

The 10-credits at Level 7 can be used to build towards our Postgraduate Certificate in Leadership and Management course, available on our Future Learn course page.
