As more and more women take up management and leadership positions, there is an increasing need among them for empowerment and skills to make a success of their new roles and careers. To address this need, USB Executive Development Ltd (USB-ED) will be presenting a workshop - Conscious Career Strategies for Women - in May this year.
This strategic workshop will make women more aware of issues affecting their careers. They will have to provide answers to questions such as: What are my career values? How are my personal circumstances influencing my career? They will also be given the opportunity to reflect on their personal career and life choices, and to develop strategies for their future success and align with their company.
The first work session will be presented by Dr Sarah Riordan, an industrial psychologist and academic with over 25 years' experience in human resource development. This session will reflect on the participants' past. During the second session, they will be taking stock of their competencies under the guidance of Wendy Anyster. Anyster is an organisation psychologist and coach, and trainer and facilitator in leadership development. The third session, facilitated by industrial psychologist Marianne Roux, is about identifying and utilising opportunities in the workplace.
The theme of the fourth session is myths and realities. Here, Dr Lesley Shackleton will help participants to explore the uniqueness of women's experience in the work environment. Shackleton is an expert on the leading role that women play to effect change.
The last session, facilitated by Dr Riordan, will be looking at future plans and personal strategies for success in your company.
The course includes dinner with Khanyi Dhlomo, founding editor of the high-end magazine Destiny. She will share the inspiring story of her career with the audience. Dhlomo was editor of True Love for ten years, and she was nominated as one of the most influential women in SA media in 2003. After that, she was appointed as head of Tourism in France, and she obtained an MBA from Harvard Business School. She is managing director of Ndalo Media, a joint project between her and Media 24.
This three-day programme will be presented at the University of Stellenbosch Business School's campus in Bellville, and it will start at 15:00 on Tuesday, 20 May. Programme fees amount to R4 250 per person, and includes notes, dinner with Khanyi Dhlomo, two lunches and refreshments. Ample time will be allowed for networking.
