Leveraging growth opportunities for female talent

This panel will consider the extent to which organisational culture and personal elements need to align in order for women to flourish. How do we overcome the risk factors with regards to women's fit, functioning and growth in the workplace?  What are the enablers for women leaders to flourish? And how are organisations enabling growth opportunities for female talent?

Perth Symposium

Development Session

Be Brave, Adaptive and Experimental

As leaders we are constantly asked to consider the concept of the ‘authentic leader’, but in practice, authenticity can sometimes become a leadership trap that makes you feel like a fake or locks you into ‘an old self’ and an already strong comfort zone. At times, what is needed is an ability to identify a ‘new self’ and the capacity to be brave, adaptive, experimental and something of a chameleon. This high impact, interactive workshop will help you unlock a new sense of your identity by inviting you to ‘steal like an artist’, aim to learn, continually refine your style, and avoid sticking to one narrow story about what makes you effective and authentic.
