Is Online Learning For Me?
What can I expect?
Targeted, small chunks of learning across a number of modules, using case studies, video, discussions and downloadable handouts to help it make sense. My courses are based in adult learning principles which support you to apply and practice what you are learning on the job. Plus, many women have come before you and generously shared their stories and examples so we can learn from each other.
Will it be too hard?
As a long-time educator I know what makes a program easy to learn. Small chunks of information, relevant videos to help the learning, and simple exercises you can do at home or online. Plus, you can ask questions on each module or send an email for assistance.
But I prefer face to face learning
I love group learning too but it’s a shame to miss out when the course you want isn’t available in your location. My online learning attempts to bring the same group experience to you. We offer a comments section on every course and you can read the comments that other women have posted as they share their experiences. Online isn’t as lonely when you know others are working on the same issues as you.
Claim Your Confidence
The Claim Your Confidence Program explores the beliefs that impact on your confidence as you build your business, do exciting business projects and find meaning in your work. We support women in solo operations, social enterprises, not for profit organisations and entrepreneurial ventures to create the resilient thoughts and beliefs that you need to be successful in business today. Eight modules self-paced with online support.
Mentoring Women in Business Brochure
This brochure was developed in collaboration with the Queensland Government’s Advancing Women in Business Initiative in 2018.
Assisted by research I conducted with female mentors and developed for women who may be formally or informally mentoring other women, this brochure explains how low confidence can affect women in business, and how, as a mentor, you can encourage her to challenge the beliefs that lead to self-doubt and help her shift to a mindset of greater confidence.
Free to download and distribute.
“For me, the strength of the program has been the ability (I would also say the permission) to tune into the good stuff and filter out the negative. I now hear how many successful business women talk about the self-saboteur, about visualising who you want to be and giving yourself permission to be that person, about understanding that friends and family may find it hard to accept who you are becoming, and may unconsciously try to hold you back. It’s been a wonderful course Irene. Well balanced, easy to read, grounded in research. A gift. Thank you”Dr Elizabeth Kirk (PhD)
