This webinar is hosted by the D2N2 Growth Hub, East Midlands Chamber and part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

Are you a female entrepreneur and/ or leader? If so you may feel a little overwhelmed at present in these challenging times. Many of us feel most confident and comfortable when we are dealing with known and familiar situations and people, this certainly hasn’t been the case during the Pandemic.

Our Women in Leadership – Grit and Grace programme is a series of four webinars that will offer you an opportunity to navigate these challenges and opportunities ahead and to connect with others in the community who are able to help and support as well as providing practical resources. Whilst everything else is moving, being constant in terms of your focus and confidence is important. Others migrate to strong leaders; however, it is important to get that balance right between grit and determination; and grace and humility.

This webinar will cover:

  • Leadership characteristics and the importance of balancing Grit with Grace.

  • Grace - the component parts:

    • Communications and social styles – how these affect perception

    • Self care and emotional intelligence

    • Supporting others – the importance of authenticity. What’s in it for them...and you.

    • Identifying and building networks – network mapping and increasing your sphere to influence and support.

Who should attend

Female business owners, existing or would be entrepreneurs and those in management and leadership positions in organisations. The programme is designed for female leaders to develop their leadership skills and confidence.

Please note that preference will be given to businesses based in Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire for this webinar.
