Top Flight is The Pipeline’s premier, flagship leadership programme for senior female executives. McKinsey identified a positive difference in return on equity of 47% between global companies with the most women on their executive committees. Yet nearly half of all female executives feel a lack of role models holds them back and reduces their willingness to go for promotion. Top Flight addresses this gap through experiential learning, by introducing participants to some of the most high-profile role models across the public and private sectors, helping women with potential take that last difficult step to CEO and Executive Committee roles.
Many organisations’ talented female leaders languish in middle-management, which reflects McKinsey’s research that this is a common barrier to progression for women. The Pipeline developed the Leadership Summit programme to lift participants to the next level and create a pipeline of high-performing female leaders ready to step into executive roles within their organisation. Using high-calibre speakers who are at the top of their professions, we create an experiential learning environment so new ways of working are quickly embedded.
BAME Breakthrough Summit
There has been little progress on achieving gender diversity at senior levels. However, improving the representation of Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic women is an even bigger challenge. In response, The Pipeline has created this senior women’s leadership programme specifically aimed at helping organisations to retain and promote these talented women. Our experience has shown that, after attending The Pipeline’s BAME Breakthrough Summit, participants are 36% more likely to apply for a promotion than they were before they attended the programme.
Leading Diverse Teams
Talent is distributed equally across gender, race, and class, yet whilst organisations recognise how to identify potential in their male employees, they are less able to spot, develop, and promote female executive talent. All too often organisations apply the same mind-set and processes they use to develop men for developing female talent, when it’s shown not to work. Building diverse teams is not an innate skill that all managers have, but it can be learned. Leading Diverse Teams gives senior leaders and managers the tools to develop women and maximise the potential of female executive talent.
Communication is not simply about the words we speak. Effective speakers combine powerful messages with engaging performance skills and great presence. Mastering Communication is a two-day programme that will transform solid communicators into those rare individuals able to motivate others to achieve more than they believed possible.
