    Development coach: Felicia Rickards


A new programme to support the development and succession of women leaders is to launch this month in Bermuda.

The Advancing Women Leaders, Assessment and Development Programme will be facilitated by organisational development consultant and personal development coach Felicia Rickards.

It will be held on Tuesday, October 29 from 9.30am until 4pm at the Fairmont Southampton.

The session is designed for senior managers, assistant vice-president and vice-president women leaders who are looking to either develop their standing in their current role or progress to an executive level role.

It includes 20 hours of content, Ms Rickards said. Attendees will complete assigned preparation work prior to the event.

Following the daylong session, attendees will work with the facilitator one-on-one to create personal development plans using the feedback from their assessment results.

Ms Rickards said: “There are traits and limitations specific to women leaders that need to be recognised to assist their progression in corporate settings. These will be explored throughout the programme.”

She added: “Common mistakes made when working in a leadership role will also be highlighted, including those made by the facilitator!”

Ms Rickards said some key components of the programme include:

• The six critical competencies essential for women to ascend the leadership ranks;

• The seven hurdles that women must scale to achieve equality and advancement;

• The impact of the “Inner Critic”;

• The Advancing Women Leader Self-Assessment with a 45-page personalised report (global assessment available through international partner, with a database of thousands of participants worldwide); and

• A summary of the full 360-degree programmes (including gender neutral options).

Ms Rickards said early registration is encouraged as there is a maximum class size.
