Step Up

Transform the leadership abilities of your female managers, giving them the skills and confidence to move up to the next level

Businesspeople having a group discussion

Step Up training days are spread out over a number of months, which gives participants the opportunity to try the techniques they have learnt, feed their experiences back to the group and discuss the programme with their line managers.

Who should take this course?
