Stanford is targeting female executives for its latest short programme which covers the strategies women need to manage their careers and maximise their professional and personal goals. The programme is being led by Margaret Neale, professor of organisations and dispute resolution at the business school.
The programme, the Executive Programme for Women Leaders, uses a combination of lectures, interactive exercises and leadership diagnostics to help female executives develop tactics to achieve their goals. Special emphasis is placed on highlighting the particular challenges faced by women.
“Women often struggle with how to develop their own leadership styles and how to enhance their status within an organisation,” says Prof Neale. “To reach the highest levels of management, it is essential for women to recognise, understand, and transform common business challenges into career-building opportunities.”
The first five-day programme will take place in May.
