empowering female leaders to thrive
Are you so busy looking after others that you forget to look after yourself? Do you find that your workplace wellness programs are built to meet the needs of employees but fall short for leaders? Would you like to build your capacity to deal with pressure and grow your leadership potential?
It is time to start looking after yourself so you can perform at your highest level.
Demands on female leaders are higher than ever.
Now more than ever they need to be resilient, decisive, clear in their communication, compassionate and emotionally intelligent – firing on all cylinders and still present and tuned in to support their team through such times of rapid change and disruption.
With mental health and stress issues across the workforce, plus so many dealing with illness and loss, leaders are finding they have a tight line to walk – keep up the performance so that they still have jobs, but be supportive and don’t pressurise because people have enough to cope with right now. The stakes are high. The pressure is on, and has been on for so long now it feels exhausting.
And yet, if you don’t take time to fill your own tank, you will have nothing to give. You cannot afford that to happen. Burnout is on the increase; if you want to prevent illness and exhaustion you must find a way to look after yourself and stay well. Leadership can be isolating. In times like this we all need support.
That’s why I’ve developed Looking After the Leaders, a program to support your wellbeing and leadership development through the pandemic and beyond.
Does this sound familiar?
You like to be on top of your game – but the game keeps changing, so you’re feeling the pressure. You’re motivated, always pushing forward, you love to learn and grow both personally and professionally. You believe in constantly evolving. You give so much to your team, you look out for them, you care; which means that sometimes you’re spread too thinly and there’s not much left for you. You’re not afraid of hard work – you must be pretty resilient to have come this far – but you know there are some pieces still holding you back from being at your best.
Being a woman in leadership can be a lonely place, with tough choices, always having to prioritise what you allocate your time to; and very often work seems to win at the cost of your personal life. You’d love to have a better balance, not to feel so guilty in relation to family/kids, and just to have more time for yourself. You tend to be hard on yourself, push yourself, but sometimes you don’t know how to be kind to yourself and just listen to what you really need.
You’d love to have some space to reflect, to build awareness, to grow into the potential of who you really are as a leader. The opportunity to build your tolerance for stress so that you feel stronger, more resilient, better able to cope with all that work and life throws at you (2020 being an excellent example of the surprises life can bring!) You want to get better at looking after your health and wellbeing, because you want to be in the best possible state to influence and create a thriving team and workforce.
You don’t want to do ‘yet another course’ – you want anything you invest your time into to make a lasting real impact. You want the time to be able to integrate your learnings into your work and life. You want things to be different for you as a result – you want to feel better, work with a deeper sense of meaning and purpose, you want to feel fulfilled, energised, and enthused! Looking After the Leaders offers you the transformation you are looking for. But hurry! Only a small number of women like yourself will be accepted onto the founding program, because this is an exclusive opportunity for the group to bond, to share their vast experience, to be mentored on the journey together, and to be part of this program at this crucial time when the world is so unpredictable.

Emotional Intelligence Assessment EQi2.0 (pre-course)
Emotional Intelligence (EI) can be defined as a set of emotional and social skills that influence the way we perceive and express ourselves, develop and maintain social relationships, cope with challenges, and use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way. The EQ-i 2.0 is a scientifically-validated psychometric assessment which measures emotional intelligence (EI) and how it can impact people and the workplace.
EQi2.0 Leadership Report
the Leadership Report gives you feedback on your scores on 15 areas of Emotional Intelligence and hones in on leadership development, executive development and coaching, and developing high potential leaders. The report also contains insights on the possible implications of results, and which skills have the highest potential of becoming leadership derailers. Strategies for development will be provided with the aim to attain true leadership potential, while being able to compare results against top leaders as a benchmark.
1-1 Session: EQ Feedback
An in-depth coaching session empowering you to make sense of your report, understand the links between the 15 subscales, and identify where you want to focus your development and set goals.
Who Is Niamh Hannan?
I have been working as a Psychologist for over 20 years and have been in many different offices in many different industries. In my work as a coach and as a facilitator, I have seen firsthand the struggles women, in particular, face in leadership today. I cannot just sit back and watch people work themselves into illness and exhaustion.
Having been involved in the wellbeing arena since 2004, I have worked alongside many Wellness providers over the years. I feel strongly that leaders need additional support to what is available for employees. A team can thrive or alternatively, not survive, depending on their leader. Engagement levels, wellbeing, mood, performance, effectiveness of the team – all are affected by the leader’s state. How can we expect our workforce to feel supported during stressful times, how can we keep performance high and keep spirits high, how can we lead teams who thrive, if we don’t look after our leaders?
Looking after our leaders is my passion and I am looking forward to helping you develop personally and professionally to become a more fulfilled and effective leader.
