Women are paving the way in housing to create an impact and redress the gender imbalance, but are still often under-represented in housing’s most senior jobs.
This bespoke virtual course has been designed specifically for women who work in the housing sector. It focuses on developing and embodying the essential skills needed to create impact and communicate with confident credibility.
This Confident Communication for Women in Housing training course offers a highly effective toolkit of transformative, performance-based techniques, involving the body, breath, and voice. These will be practiced and then applied to different communication settings and role-play scenarios to enable you to develop greater flexibility and choice in how you react and communicate.
This toolkit can be practiced repeatedly to enable you to increase your sense of personal power, credibility, leadership capacities and confident communication for women.
