Fearless Leadership for Conscious Women 

 
Workshop Overview

Women today are more educated and more powerful than ever before and they are making bold moves in the workplace. There is a momentum building where women want to play a bigger part in organisations. More than this, they wish to influence their teams and shape future directions. They did not arrive here by chance.
 
The reality is that you do not just wake up one day as a fearless leader. It takes skills, support, training and great habits to be a conscious leader.
 
Organisations today must thrive in unpredictable and rapidly changing times. Conscious leaders are required to influence and engage with stakeholders in ways that foster organisational engagement, promote exceptional communication and demonstrate proven outcomes.
 
Becoming more agile and responsive in one’s approach is essential in this type of environment. Consideration of the human experience, empathy and being more creatively attuned with their team offers leaders the opportunity for innovative, healthier and happier workplaces.
 
Leading with audacity and courage requires a level of confidence and deep trust in oneself to speak up and speak out. Increasing your influence and making a positive impact requires exceptional knowledge, skills and commitment.  
 
This workshop will provide you with practical applications to upgrade your skills to lead with dignity, both within and without your organisation.

Workshop Leader 

Surya Silva
Education Consultant, Coach and Facilitator, Silva Solutions
 
Professional and personal development for both women and organisations has been the focus of my work for more than 25 years. I’m an expert in the field of education consultancy and have worked across many diverse areas of the industry.  
I work with women who seek to become empowered and step into or expand their leadership role. Additionally, I work with organisations who are willing to offer their staff the opportunity to grow and develop their capacity in order to achieve outstanding leadership results. 
Over many years I’ve developed the perfect mix of coaching following education programs. This provides the opportunity for women to deepen their understanding and application of what has been learnt. By drawing on my three decades of knowledge, skills and wisdom I’m able to support women to achieve their goals and desires.  
Originally from Adelaide, Surya has been in the Territory for 15 years.
