Skirting Leadership



Yes, it’s an uneven playing field. Yes, there are inequitable situations in the workplace that make it harder for women to achieve the careers they want. Yes, it seems that there is unconscious bias and double-standards in the work place that interpret what women do and how they do it very differently to the same actions from men.

All that is true. However, another truth is that women don’t always take the opportunities that are in front of them.They may fear that they aren’t good enough.They may want to wait until they have all the competencies.They may feel they’ll be ready soon.They may fail to recognise the value of their skills and capabilities.They may experience the Imposter Syndrome.

Find out why the Imposter Syndrome is an issue that impacts the self-esteem and self-confidence of women, making it challenging for them to step up.  For information on the Skirting Leadership offering, please visit our Programmes page.


A few Testimonials for Skirting Leadership

I knew there was something holding me back. Now I know what it is and I’m on my way to overcoming those hurdles.  Linda, Manager, CSIRO

Your presentation was, hands-down, one of the most consummate performances I have seen ever. Purposeful, masterful, to the point, engaging, and flexible.  And your workshop was a practical and tangible introduction to the reasons for and surprising power of positive psychology. Edward, Senior Scientist, CSIRO

Skirting Leadership has provided me with practical and thought provoking tools to better judge my biggest critic – me! (In a positive way that I know will make a difference at work and also my personal life). Thank you Suzanne – loved the workshops! Natalie, Senior Manager, TAL

Understanding how important it is to appreciate that my colleagues / direct reports have the imposter syndrome and how I can help them address it.  Excellent skills at keeping the workshop on track, drawing out shy people, being sensitive to high emotions. Jaci, Senior Scientist, CSIRO

Suzanne has been very insightful in her understanding of a very complicated issue for women. She has dissected the components and made it seem more approachable and understandable for me. I have been to other ʻmotivational” courses from TAL before and honestly believe that she has influenced me in a positive way for the first time in an organisation. It is a great investment for TAL. Wei, Manager, TAL
