Some women in Nigeria are in leadership positions. More of them are currently entering into the leadership cadres while more are expected to take up leadership roles in various spheres of life. Studies have however shown that some of the factors which inhibit women from performing creditably well as leaders arise from their inability to assert themselves and interact effectively with others. There is therefore, the need to equip women with the required skills that will enable them to effectively cope with the challenges of leading and performing as leaders.
This workshop is designed to provide necessary training that can develop women for effective leadership. At the end of this workshop, participants should be able to:
- Acquire skills for leading and staying in control
- Exhibit confidence in decision-making
