Female Leadership—Leading Successfully Despite Gender Barriers


Female leadership is a complex topic with many facets. In this course, we focus on what women can do themselves to be successful or become more successful leaders. It's not so much a question of how women lead or whether they are better leaders. Instead, we present the biggest difficulties women who (want to) take on leadership roles face. And most importantly, we focus on approaches they can take to deal with these difficulties. After an introduction to the topic, five of the most common obstacles are identified and learners are given practical and action-oriented suggestions for dealing with them constructively.
