Women's Development

women's developmentApart from tailored development for individuals, we also offer a Women's Development Programme to enable women to reach their full potential. This is done by facilitating women to analyse their skills, values and qualities so that they can set goals for themselves and go on to achieve them. This in turn can enhance self confidence and self esteem.

Our programme motivates participants to take responsibility, develop careers and generally be more effective.

The programme consists of various workshops which can be spread over three months combined. Role-model speakers and networking are also important elements of the programme. The courses can be run in-house with between 12 and 80 women at a time, so can be a very cost-effective way of developing individuals.

Topics covered in the programme include:

  • Analysing Skills
  • Assertiveness
  • Career Development
  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Fulfilling Potential
  • Goal Setting
  • Improving Effectiveness at Work
  • Managing Image
  • Managing Stress
  • Problem-Solving
  • Taking Initiative
  • Work-Life Balance

Why should Freshwater Consulting run your Development Course?

As Chartered Occupational Psychologists we have a broad knowledge of the theory behind much of the course content and use this knowledge on a day to day basis (and not just when offering Women’s Development Training). However, do not be put off by the fact that we are psychologists as your course will be run by Samantha Scott (see About Us for more information) who has a down-to-earth and approachable style and has personal experience of using some of the course topics.  Finally, because we do not just offer training we can also offer bespoke services after the course, thus maintaining continuity.
