WISTA The Netherlands Women Leadership Program

July 2, 2019 to July 3, 2019

WISTA the Netherlands in cooperation with the Rotterdam School of Management proudly presents the WISTA Women in Leadership Program (WLP). A leadership program customized for WISTA members especially designed to develop industry-relevant leadership skills and networking in an intense, interactive two-day program.

The WISTA WLP addresses the issues of women in business, particularly the challenges that women face when climbing the corporate ladder. The aim of the WLP is to enable each of the participants to discover more about themselves by interacting with other high-performing women in a challenging but pleasant environment.

The classroom training as well as the subsequent workshops will prepare the participants for their next career step acquiring new knowledge, engaging voice, taking ownership, building a profile and gaining confidence.

Participants will gain understanding of their leadership style, develop and understand their network and learn effective and concise communication. After the training, each participant will know not only how she can increase her leadership presence, but also specifically what actions the wants to take in the short term to see immediate improvement.

The WISTA WLP will be led by Prof. Dianne Bevelander who will be responsible for the program on “Women in Leadership” and by Dorothy Grandia who will conduct a workshop on “Communication with Impact”. The course will be given in English.
