Strategies for Leadership (SL) – Seminar for women in leadership positions

Strategies for leadership positions for women at the IMD Business School

According to a study by Credit Suisse, companies with a higher percentage of women on the board or in higher management positions are more successful and hold a clear advantage over other listed companies. Nevertheless, women in leadership positions are still scarce.

IMD Lausanne is strongly committed to promoting women in leadership positions and is offering a very specific four-day leadership seminar exclusively for women. “Strategies for Leadership” focuses on the following key aspects: assertiveness, confidence, communication of visions and strategies, influence and standing out in a group. The participants improve their ability to lead teams more effectively by being who they are – not by imitating a particularly male style of leadership.

The leadership seminar for women is an ideal preparation for taking on top-level manager roles and board seats.

Program agenda

Exclusive training at IMD Lausanne for women in leadership positions

The four-day seminar for women in leadership positions is characterized by active lessons learned and interactive tasks. Simulation exercises are a key element of the learning experience – always focused on typically female challenges. You will solve tasks in pairs and take part in in-depth group sessions as well as individual coaching sessions. To prepare for the program you will be asked to reflect on your career and put it down in writing. After the workshop you will be supported by a personal coach to help you to apply your newly learned knowledge in specific situations.
