Event description
Courageous leaders – lead for the greater good and not just their own. Courageous leaders – uplift and empower their teams.

About this event

Empowering women to unlock their unique leadership potential and courage.

Women offer a unique perspective in leadership, problem solving and team development. They have a different understanding of the way people and teams work, and a different solution to meeting their needs. Traditionally, leadership training has overlooked the women’s perspective and sadly, lost the opportunity to tap into the special leadership power that women possess.  Courageous Women Program changes that by helping women to unlock their unique leadership potential.


The Courageous Women Program by McDonald Inc. has been specifically designed to meet the needs of women in leadership roles. The program takes a personalised approach so that it meets the needs of each individual participant. 

The program empowers women to lead by giving them the courage, tools and strategies to recognise their own innate abilities. It encourages them to explore their own personalities as leaders, and to understand the impact that their leadership style can have on group behaviour.

What will the Courageous Women Program give me?

Through reflection, webinars, practical exercises and discussion, we help you understand how to interpret and change organisational culture through influential leadership.

  • We maximise your skills and motivation to achieve the best results for yourself, your team, and for the business.
  • You learn to recognise and value the special skills that women - including you have and how they make a difference in the way people and teams work.
  • You will learn how to harness your strengths and develop your capacity to lead and manage effectively in a changing environment.
  • You will discover the power of your influence and how to use it wisely to persuade others towards successful outcomes.
  • You will discover what drives and motivates you and how to maintain your motivation while still maintaining balance and focus.
  • You will learn how to work with men so that gender harmony is maintained and the special blend of male and female perspectives is equally valued.

Why it's a great program

Cutting edge organisations see the value of gender balance in leadership and are actively seeking out and offering development opportunities to talented females who have leadership potential. 

“Sonia has enabled me to see my full potential, as not only a great leader, but a leader who is great! She has helped me by setting goals, providing informative information to me, and always being there when I need her expert help. Entertaining, informative and most importantly relevant, plenty of information to take away and refer to as well. I will be using everything that I have learnt to build the best team on the next project.” ~Jacqui A.
