Learning outcomes


Many women in leadership positions have achieved remarkable success in their career and yet still share that internally they still don’t feel good enough or suffer with ‘imposter syndrome’. Success, knowledge and experience do increase self-confidence and yet nothing quite reaches the deeper parts of us and the wounding at the core of our essential sense of self which is often rooted in childhood.

Rowena Khanna is a learning and development specialist with over 20 years experience. She runs her own training company/coaching practice and has broad experience working with leadership teams and managers in both public and private sector organisations across the UK and worldwide.

Rowena has an excellent reputation as an Executive/performance coach and selected coach at the London Business School.

She has worked throughout the Middle East running inspirational events for over 10 years and specializes in working with diverse audiences and particularly with groups of women. Her events are fully participative with psychological depth and and lots of practical examples.

“I attended Rowena’s training on Woman in Leadership in Vienna last week and must say that it was amazing for many reasons: 1. It made me realize how important it is to have and show female role models, who have not changed to “better men” but kept their feminine approach so that other women are encouraged to follow 2. Rowena provided a lot of insights and useful, simple models not only from her professional career as a leader but also from her experience in psychotherapy which was adding an important dimension. 3. Eventually it all came together for me in the questions of “Do I know myself well enough to lead myself?” and “Would I want to be led by me?” which build a great foundation of constant self-reflection. After all this is what makes us grow. Thank you Rowena for these two days which were over far too soon! “
Silvia (Pfeil) Imre, Head HR Slovakia & Western Europe, EMEA Partner CorSo bei Swiss Re

Another shared “I truly enjoyed the Women in Leadership event. For me it was exactly the right mix of discussions, self-reflection and observations in little try-outs and a great opportunity to share experiences with other female leaders from different industries. It was inspiring to witness Rowena’s capabilities in attuning to the audience, creating a warm and save atmosphere while setting clear boundaries and targets. A warm recommendation from my side for every female leader interested in strengthening their leadership skills and in digging deeper on gender related aspects.”
Alexandra Köppl, Director Packaging Operations bei Fresenius Kabi

  1. Get the timing right.
    Many people are afraid to request for training budget, because they can’t seem to find the “perfect time” to do it. Well, there’s no perfect time to ask for it, but there are definitely some moments that are better than others. For instance, if your boss is about to take a two week vacation, he/she might be in a good mood. If he/she just lost a major account, may not be wise at that juncture.
  2. Make a case for yourself
    When you ask for budget, you should be prepared with specific details and explanations about what is in it for the company and you’re superior. If you go into a meeting and just say, “I want to get budget for a conference,” it’s likely that your request won’t be taken seriously. If you want to plan ahead, then you should be prepared to explain the following points:
    1. Start by stating your accomplishments
    2. Show that you’re ready for more responsibility and eager to learn
    3. Describe:
    a) How this event will increase your productivity?
    b) How you will need less supervision
    c) How you can bring back the knowledge to the company
    4. Follow up
You might find free to attend events which are usually organized by a solution/service provider within the industry. Unlike at free to attend events, on a paid event you will find more diverse industry knowledge rather than presentations related to services or solutions.
In case you cannot attend for both days, you can always attend for just 1 day of the event. In this case we will send you all presentations of the 2 days. The participation fee is 70% of the original investment. In case you would like to attend the event for just 1 day please contact us on booking[at]glceurope.com
In case you are busy on 1 of the days, you certainly can split the 2 day conference with one of your colleague. All you need to do is send us an e-mail to booking[at]glceurope.com
We understand that not all senior-level professionals might be available on the dates. As the event is an annual event, most of the attendees try to postpone their engagements or send a small group from their teams to benefit from the conference.
