From Monday, September 23, to Friday, September 27, 2019, Frankfurt School of Finance & Management will host its Women’s Leadership Academy. The programme aims to increase participants’ leadership effectiveness through a unique combination of coaching, networking and analytical reflection. With peers from all over the world, female managers will be equipped with the necessary tools to lead efficiently. The academy addresses senior managers with at least seven years of working experience who aspire to positions of greater responsibility.

Dr Barbara Drexler, Head of FS Sustainable World Academy, and Nilly Chingaté Castaño, Programme Manager e-Campus at Frankfurt School, manage the programme.

The academy is specifically designed for women due to the two challenges female leaders encounter in their professional life: the glass ceiling and the glass cliff. “Female leaders often do not arrive at top management positions due to invisible, but nevertheless prevalent, barriers”, says Dr Barbara Drexler.

It is no secret that men continue to be the dominate face of leadership positions. “Our goal is to help bridging the gap between male and female leaders through coaching, mentoring and interactive classrooms. Participants can leverage their influence, develop executive presence through effective verbal and non-verbal skills and enhance problem-solving competences”, Dr Barbara Drexler and Nilly Chingaté Castaño emphasise.

Institutions benefit from sending female talents to the Women’s Leadership Academy too. “Our participants maximise their personal leadership effectiveness to adapt to an individual’s, team’s, or company’s situation. Top level female managers create a distinctive value and foster diversity across the organization.”
