Women Leadership and Negotiation Summer Academy 2019

when 29 July 2019 - 2 August 2019
language English
duration 1 week
fee EUR 1370

Women around the world are challenged to find their way into top careers. Not because they don’t have the education, or they don’t have the skills, but because they don’t find the right points of entry, build the right networks and learn the “rules of the professional game” that can get them noticed and get them ahead.

The Women Leadership and Negotiation Academy gives young ambitious women the unique opportunity to live with Dr. Claudia Winkler, who will share her 9 steps to career success and enable participants to kickstart their desired career path.

The week’s schedule will be based on the women who are selected to provide the most benefit to their particular challenges. Traditionally, this has meant work on the following areas:

Strategic Career Planning (understanding the tricks and challenges)
Specific and Targeted Goal Setting (crafting action plans)
Building Negotiation skills and Convincing Power
Getting into a top school/program
Mentor Hunting (locating, convincing and impressing top mentors)
Confidence Building (speaking up to impress in professional environments)
Tackling the Confidence Cliff (dealing with bullying, discrimination)
Creating a powerful network to help you get ahead


PS: Because this is a highly personal and intense experience for a selected number of women, the number of seats are highly limited.

If interested or know someone who might be a perfect fit for the Academy, make sure to secure your seat before 20 May, when applications are closing. If you have any questions, feel free to write.
