Lessons in Leadership: The Aspirant Female Leader
Overcoming obstacles & challenges
Updated on Sep, 2023
Language - English
Maintaining balance between being a leader, wife, mother and care giver is a challenge faced by women throughout the world. In this course I will be sharing my experiences as well as tools and techniques necessary for successfully navigating these seemingly conflicting priorities.
We will have honest conversations about the insecurities women face as a result of societal and cultural expectations, the stress induced by trying to juggle the dichotomy of being both a good mother and having career aspirations, contending with workplace cultures that are still rather patriarchal in nature.
The class project (part of the Conclusion) is made up of a series of exercises designed to help you to introspect and self-reflect in order for you to discover who you are, what frustrates you, what you need to put in place, what work life balance means for you, identify the toxic beliefs that govern your life, how meditation and affirmation can be used to build up your confidence and belief in yourself and, how you can use the Eisenhower Matrix to prioritise your tasks, among other things. The more thought that you put into it, the more you will get out of it. Enjoy your journey of discovery and empowerment.
