Training Course Overview

Despite all the evidence that organisations with a balance of females in the C suite are more successful and are considered to be better environments to work in, there is still a disproportionate balance between men and women at the top of organisations.

Often, it is a question of culture and custom and practice – men are ‘natural’ leaders and women are naturally ‘supporters’ – a myth that needs dispelling. A balance of a male approach and a female approach ensures that an organisation will prosper and that the organisational strategy reflects benefits to both the stakeholders and society as a whole. This intensive COPEX training course will equip women with the skills and confidence to succeed.
