The Springboard Women’s Development Programme

iNetwork are proud to announce that the Springboard Women’s Development Programme is back following a successful course between March and June 2018.

What is the programme about?

The programme is a 3 month personal development programme specifically developed and written for women, it is aimed at women of all levels. The phenomenally successful, award-winning development programme enables women to identify the clear, practical, and realistic steps that they want to take to make a better world for themselves at work and home, whilst building the practical skills and confidence to take these steps. It is delivered through an extensive network of licensed trainers and has been used by over 230,000 women in over 40 countries.

The main purpose of the Springboard programme is to build individuals’ self-confidence and provide them with the tools to identify what’s important to them and set goals to achieve their real aspirations. This is because some people want to do more but don’t believe they can. Some live their lives for others, sacrificing their own dreams or beliefs under the impression that they have no other choice. Some simply don’t realise their own potential. The programme allows women to realise that they have much more freedom than they think to “change what we want to change and be what we want to be”.

The programme is also beneficial to employers because it will help employees demonstrate their ability to; identifying priorities, setting and monitoring their own goals, building networks and better relationships, facing perceived problems head on with a more positive approach, practising assertive behaviours for the best results whilst building on their self-confidence. Furthermore, it gives employers a chance to boost their diversity agenda because the programme is designed and written by the Springboard Consultancy, an award-winning, reputable, consultancy that recognises diversity in UK workplace.

Who is it suitable for?

The Springboard Women’s Development Programme is designed for women from all backgrounds, ages and stages of their lives. Although the programme was initially written and developed for women in non-management grades, women from all levels, including management, have participated in the programme to the benefit of their personal and career development. For employers, the Springboard programme enables them to develop staff to their fullest potential, is quick and easy to implement and is often a key component in any diversity and/or gender initiatives.

Why women only?

As with other minority groups (such as gender, age, religion, faith, race, disability, and sexuality) women have many issues in common. They get a huge boost by discovering they are ‘not the only one’. Furthermore, the programme deals with sensitive issues being women-only this makes it easier to talk about issues in a safe environment.

What results can I expect?

The results relate to the individual aims and objectives that each woman sets herself on the first workshop. Many women use the programme for career development, to get results at work, such as new qualifications, promotions, new skills, a new attitude to change and 80% say they have increased confidence and self-esteem.

Other women focus on results in their personal life, such as sorting out difficult relationships, improving health, dealing with stress and gaining a work/life balance. Some women improve their career development after attending the Springboard Women’s Development Programme, whilst 78% stay in their existing role and take on more responsibility with a new sense of purpose and 83% say they have a more positive attitude.
