The communication training for female managers, to gain equal respect and recognition 

among their male colleagues in the workplace.

The Authority Gap

In recent years, companies have taken great strides towards creating a more equitable workplace for male and female leaders. Training initiatives have raised awareness of the various types of bias against women in the workplace. However, there remains one major problem that has yet to be adequately addressed: Even with their expertise and accomplishments, many women are still marginalised and silenced during conversations with men. While expertise is an important factor, it isn’t enough to ensure that a woman has a seat at the table in a conversation. 

Power Dynamics

Whoever speaks first and loudest is often deemed to have more power or influence in the conversation. As a result of this uneven power dynamic, many women lack the confidence and experience to stand up for themselves when they are challenged by men in a professional setting. What is perceived as an attack on their personal credibility often leads to feelings of powerlessness, frustration and exhaustion. It's time to close this gap, that inhibits women from reaching their full potential within the workplace

Together we will develop strategies that will strengthen your leadership skills and help you to appear confident in every situation.
