TOPIC: LEADERFUL WOMEN, ENGENDERING BALANCE
with Mary Musselbrook, Director Engendering Balance
"In the work of engendering balance, we support people and organisations to take a fresh and progressive approach to leadership - one that gives greater space to a wider range of qualities that are central to the growth and development of organisations - qualities that many women know well."
This session is thought-provoking and affirming – we introduce our approach and we work with the women participants to explore ways of fully utilising and valuing their natural leadership qualities. The session has relevance irrespective of whether or not someone has a formal ‘leader’ role.
This is an interactive, informal and enjoyable session. We will take you through a simple but powerful process that helps you to reflect on your leadership qualities. It will be up to you what you want to share within the wider group and there will be plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion.
The session will be led by Mary Musselbrook of Engendering Balance Ltd, and supported by Kerry Cullen, an experienced coach and facilitator, based in Dublin.
Mary brings a blend of in-company and external consulting experience to her coaching, facilitation and leadership development work. Her earlier career as a business psychologist and L&D consultant and at senior levels within a global drinks business gave her experience across a wide range of sectors and geographies and has influenced her in taking a systemic approach with her clients. Her focus is on enabling shifts in leadership behaviour and leadership culture towards a more progressive, balanced leadership approach, and she has co-authored a book with her partners in EB Ltd. She has worked within sectors as diverse as the financial sector; media; shipping industry; oil and gas services industry; professional services; food and drink; engineering firms; and telecommunications. Clients describe her as professional and engaging, combining constructive challenge with empathy.
Kerry is a Chartered Business Psychologist who has run her own consultancy practice in Ireland for 15 years. She has completed several large scale organisational research projects and she has worked extensively in the area of competency based selection and development. As a result she has gained an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the working of organisations from a big picture, team and individual perspective. Her clients include Bristol-Myers Squibb, AIB, IBEC, Aer Arran and Siemens. She is passionate about coaching and facilitation, energising people and transforming companies. Her greatest joy in life comes from seeing people (including herself) stretch into new possibilities.
