Impact and Influence for Women Leaders

Evidence shows that gender still influences who gets heard and who progresses upwards in corporations.

This event casts light on why this is and what women leaders can do about it. It equips women executives with practical methods to get heard and get the best out of others.

It is for:

  • Individual women executives who seek to use their communication style to increase their persuasiveness, impact and influence.
  • Organizations seeking to maximize the potential of their women leaders, and demonstrate their commitment to diversity.

It covers:

  • The use of language that gets heard and achieves results
  • Techniques for influence and persuasion
  • Using voice and physicality to maximize impact and influence
  • Managing inner levels of confidence, the triggers and anchors
  • Understanding our unwritten rules and assumptions; and how to make these work for us
  • Understanding and using our full repertoire of communication styles

From the Threshold team (includes):

Anna Darvas: Anna is a trained actor and experienced communications coach. As well as doing voice overs for Panorama, she has worked as actress and violinist in theatre and on TV. She has extensive experience in presentation skills coaching, feedback coaching and how to tackle difficult conversations. Through her experience as an actress and musician she can show how to connect 'what you say' with 'how you say it' – the words, the body language and the tone of voice.

Peter Nicholas: with a background in psychology, Peter is a leading acting coach, who regularly appears on television shows such as Naked (BBC3) Would Like to Meet (Channel 4) and Faking It (Channel 4).

It will be Threshold’s usual blend of facts, insights, and practical techniques. We will be combining the latest psychological research with practical tools and methods, together with the opportunity to practice with skilled and experience coaches.

We also offer free additional membership of the Threshold community, which is an ongoing source of advice, support and access to a network of women leaders.
