Constructing Equality Ltd Delivers Training for Women Managers

On 5th March Constructing Equality Ltd delivered the second in the series of development sessions for WiBSE members focused on Leadership Development of Women in the Construction Industry.Case Study Five

Hosted by WiBSE at ARUP’s St James Place Offices in Manchester, the evening brought together women from organisations across both the building services engineering and broader construction sectors to undertake some personal development and networking aimed at supporting them in transitioning their skills into leadership roles at the right point within their career paths. The March session focused on helping the attendees to focus on how they should be promoting themselves to their advantage within their workplace and key “light-bulb” moments centred around the negative self-speak that women can tend to adopt in the workplace as they strive for perfection and sabotage their own achievements in the face of their counterparts, managers and clients by being their own biggest critics.

The delegates left the session galvanised to be SMART about their achievements, and how and when they should take the opportunity to use their achievements to illustrate their value to their colleagues, managers and clients with a 100% satisfaction rating from delegates for both the content and the improvement in their understanding.

The remaining development sessions, planned over the coming months with Constructing Equality Ltd are planned to continue with the next event scheduled for 30th April 2014 – anyone interested in finding out more, or attending the April session, should contact Laura Dunlop at WiBSE via
