Tools, Strategies and Techniques to Optimise Leadership Potential for Women in the Ever-Changing and Expanding Digital Sphere.
Due to the rapid rate of growth in the digital world, being a leader in this environment presents an array of unpredictable challenges. Knowledge and experience provide a great foundation for digital career progression, but in order to lead we need to be prepared with the leadership tool kit suited to our business context. A finely-tuned set of skills that allow a leader to communicate effectively, influence change and employ strategies for team advancement will ensure success in a digital environment.
Leaders in the digital space must be prepared for the barriers they may face, and have a strong grasp of the strategies and techniques they can put in place to overcome these challenges. With the implementation of positive motivation, a successful communication plan, and an authentic leadership approach, you can excel as a digital leader.
Despite an increasing number of roles in digital and a large number of these being held by women, the majority of women occupy less senior technology roles. There is no doubt that men continue to outweigh women in digital leadership and management roles. However, as the digital role continues to emerge as an integral part of any organisation the opportunity to lead is becoming more accessible, and women need to develop their capacity as leaders to ensure their candidacy for executive positions.
The Women in Digital Leadership Summit 2016 is the opportunity for existing and emerging leaders to take hold of their leadership goals. This unique forum will be an opportunity to learn from the experience of successful executive women through their inspirational career stories and leadership insights. Both technical and leadership skills will be addressed and participants will leave the conference equipped with ideas and strategies to effectively lead in the digital world.
