Step up to achieve success

Step up to achieve success


Stepping up means different things to different people.

For some, it means stepping up into management and leadership positions. For others, it involves stepping up their skills to achieve excellence in their current role, or achieving greater effectiveness in their relationships with colleagues.

Whatever stepping up means to you, Stepping Up: Skills for Success, a full-day professional development workshop for Gippsland women, will equip you with practical skills to help you get there.

Delivered by leadership expert Maree McPherson and communications specialist Leah Mether, Stepping Up has been designed for Gippsland women, by Gippsland women. It is also being delivered in Gippsland, so no need for expensive travel and accommodation costs.

According to Leah, the workshop will help women navigate a way forward to achieve their professional aspirations.

“This workshop is for any women wanting to add to their tool kit of skills and strategies to achieve success,” Leah said.

“Many women are frustrated – they know where they want to go, but they’re not sure how to get there. They want to increase their visibility and be heard in the workplace, but are not sure how to go about it, or they want to learn how to do it better.”

Maree agreed.

“It’s about giving women practical skills that allow them to step up into the jobs they want, meet the people they want to influence, achieve their aspirations, and have fulfilled lives,” she said.
