For women who lead
The Gravitas Project is for women who lead to enable them to be the obvious choice for the next position to the C-Suite, boardroom and beyond.
Over 12 months you will attend 4 x two day modules to further develop your skills and build your gravitas. Surrounded by a small group of select women you will explore how gravitas will take you further and beyond what you are currently doing. Women with gravitas (like Michelle Obama, Quentin Bryce and Elizabeth Proust) are remembered for all the right reasons.
Your group of highly educated and already senior positioned women will provide you a supportive environment. Our groups are carefully constructed to ensure you are with a group of women who are not competing for similar roles to you but are travelling a similar path building your own community of trusted supporters.
For organisations. For women.
We work with individuals and organisations to help women unlock their career potential by embracing and discovering their own Gravitas.
Support and guidance every step of the way
The project is be led by Amanda MacLean. Having sat in senior positions and at board level too, she knows first-hand what ‘works’. Along with a panel of hand-picked expert facilitators, support and guidance is provided every step of the way.
The project is an immersive experience meeting every quarter, around a boardroom table, with circa 10 - 15 women.
In between participants have the chance to build and use the skills from the previous module along within a 60 minute Skype mentoring session.
Participants have access to a closed community portal (only available to the women in their group), to ask questions and access specialised content as well as a safe place to ask for advice, ponder, share and vent along the way. Creating a trusted network of women on the same journey... for the duration of the project and for the years ahead.
While being part of The Gravitas Project participants will consider who they are and where they desire to be, how to build resilience to support their choices, and not lose their sense of self along the way. Developing gravitas and networks, and what it means to be a woman at the top in the next decade and beyond.
The project content is all about developing women to be confident in all situations from the boardroom to the bored room.
Over 12 months we work with experts in diplomacy and resilience, to voice and body movement. Amanda will explore how behavioural flexibility can be developed so any situation is faced gracefully and graciously, even the most complex and challenging situations.
Each two day block is designed as a learn and embed and experiment process. From understanding how personality drives behaviours and creating flexible behaviours to suit all situations, to knowing how to ‘work the room’ and handle the ‘sticky situations’, The Gravitas Project is for women who lead to move beyond their formal education into the unspoken rules of the game for women at work.
