BPW Leadership Training for Women

BPW Leadership Training for Women is a 2-day seminar. Practical exercises—case study analyses, role plays, impromptu presentations—are part of these intense but fun training days! Networking among members and sharing best practices add value for participants.

Target group

We want our members to be great leaders both in the BPW and the corporate world and so we have specially developed a new leadership training program for women in leadership positions or for ambitious women who want to take the next step in their professional career.


This inspirational and practical program empowers women in achieving their personal and professional goals and enhancing their leadership skills.


The training consists of 3 topics and includes 14 modules under these topics.

It starts from the individual level (Me as a leader), includes team processes (Me and my team), then continues with the organizational level of leadership (Organizational Leadership). Practical exercises and sharing best practices are important elements of the training.

The comprehensive view, the special environment with women only and shared experiences makes this program unique and offers an empowering environment for  existing and future women leaders.

Topic 1 – Me As a Leader 
This module helps the participants to learn about their own leadership qualities. Participants discover the key factors of successful leadership and learn what others expect of them as leaders—personal strengths as well as overcoming obstacles.

Topic 2 – Me and My Team
This module is about managing and growing teams, and giving and receiving constructive feedback as leaders. It also looks into motivation, communication and conflict management skills, as well as into some intercultural awareness issues.

Topic 3 – Organizational Leadership
In this module we look at developing and implementing vision and strategy, as well as executing change management. There is a special focus on women on boards and how sponsoring and mentoring can be used to support women for higher positions in organizations.
