NECA WA's Modern Leader Workshop for Women, powered by Brighter Super

25 October 2023

Thank you to the attendees at NECA WA's recent inaugural Modern Leader Workshop for women, powered by Brighter Super.

Designed for women working in the electrical industry, this full-day interactive workshop was developed to help attendees develop the skillset, business communication proficiency and leadership acumen to succeed. Recognising that leadership is not only a quality, but also a skill that can be cultivated, the program’s primary goal was to empower women with the motivation and confidence to assert themselves as credible and skilled managers, even in environments traditionally dominated by men. 

Business Communication Consultant, Lisa Baumwol, covered a wide array of topics discussing:

  • Qualities of an effective leader
  • Emotional intelligence
  • Advanced questioning and listening skills
  • Delivering persuasive messages
  • Managing mindset
  • Understanding why leaders fail; and
  • Strategies for managing difficult people and resolving conflicts.

The full-day interactive workshop took place at the end of September attracting a diverse range of participants such as business owners, contract managers, general managers, and individuals from the construction industry - both in office-based and onsite managerial roles.

Throughout the day, participants offered valuable feedback affirming the workshop's relevance and insightfulness. It not only boosted their confidence to communicate effectively, but also provided them with tangible strategies that could be implemented immediately to their everyday roles.
