About Your Expert Course Director A workshop headed up by Jacqueline Klauer means the dierence between walking out with just enthusiasm for the topic, or having learned the proven skills that get the job done. If you increase your skill level in a subject, the enthusiasm comes from within, and that’s what creates long-term results.

The George Washington University School of Business, IIR Middle East’s Academic Partner, is dedicated to excellence: in its teaching and research about management, in the public and private sectors, within the United States and internationally. The school has a 75 year history of preparing men and women for leadership in both the public and private sectors.

Described by her clients as “professional, energetic, open, inspiring, engaging and empowering”, Jacqueline has the enviable ability to provide focus to the most complicated of subjects and works with her seminar groups to seek relevant solutions for direct implementation in the workplace. As a consultant to management for over 25 years, Jacqueline has sought to improve both the careers of individuals and business practices of organisations in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the USA, China, Southeast Asia, Southern Africa and the Middle East. A course with Jacqueline is highly focussed, and is based on her own experiences in business where she has held senior executive portfolios in a number of organisations, including Global Group Human Resources Manager for a multi -national franchise organisation. Jacqueline has degrees from Illinois State University and the University of Salzburg and is an accredited lecturer with a number of Australian, UK- and US-based Institutes.

Weam Zabar, Customer Services Manager, ACI Worldwide, Bahrain

“If I had the chance I would do it again. The speaker had a magic way of keeping our attention to the course for the course days. Very well organised, informative and timely event” Soraya Khatib, Head of Customer Service, Sama Dubai, UAE

“Allow me to call you my “inspiration”. I do not believe that any thankful words would be enough to share how much of a great difference your course has added to my personality and career beliefs. It has enlightened several areas in my life which I think I would never have noticed until I stepped right through your course.We have had several workshops ever since the course but none of them had the same brilliant inspiring effects on me. Upon coming back from the course I have had one-to-one sessions with my team, and they have personally spotted the change in me. I noticed progress on our communication too.” Moyassar Abdul Kade, Customer Relations Supervisor Bayt.com – Abu Dhabi, UAE

Course Overview

Course Outline

The incredible accomplishments of women as leaders, entrepreneurs, and professionals in the Middle East are a clear indication that women are transforming the face of business and society. Regional women have penetrated the international business arena, moving into leadership roles as business owners and heads of major corporations.

The Role Of Women In Management In The Middle East

IIR ME’s Women And Leadership, written and presented by Jacqueline Klauer, is an exciting and highly interactive course that will equip you with advanced management skills. You will learn to adopt innovative approaches to overcome major challenges affecting today’s women professionals in the Middle East. The workshop-style sessions will encourage you to evaluate processes, tools and techniques, and to use them to make an impact at your workplace.

This will be an interactive opportunity to “set the scene” with your peers and fellow course participants with a lively S.W.O.T. (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) discussion concerning management opportunities for women in the Middle East. Defining Your Personal Vision As A Woman In Management – What Are Your Career Expectations? You have talent, skills, experience, entrepreneurial skills and potential. How do you make yourself the best candidate for your desired promotion?

Whether you are already in a management role, or aspire to be in one, this workshop is for you.

In this session you will: • Explore the reasons people fail to set goals • Understand five key concepts in goal setting that will enable you to tackle obstacles which inhibit individuals from creating meaningful, achievable career expectations • Examine the critical steps to goal achievement • Discover the 12 steps to goal achievement • Broaden your understanding of why and how to set specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and timely career goals

About The Metrics 1. Conflict Strategies Inventory: This inventory is based on more than 30 years of managerial and behavioural scientific research in the area of interpersonal conflict. You will have an opportunity to assess your conflict strategy preference(s) by responding to cases that address a variety of typical, work-related situations. 2. Personal Style Inventory: This inventory will measure the ‘shape’ of your preferred personality and help you determine which tasks and situations might be easier or more comfortable for you as a woman in management and also which tasks may be less easy and less comfortable for you. This is an extremely valuable tool, creating even better self awareness on your road to sensitivity and management success.

Learning To Lead – Developing Your Leadership Style • What are the specific leadership attributes and their associated behaviours that need to be demonstrated within your work environment? • Who are the stakeholders in your business environment? • What results need to be achieved for each of them? • How can you influence these results? • How can you win credibility both within and beyond your organisation? • What are the specific organisational capabilities required to maximise current and future performance in your business? • Understand your own leadership style and build on your strengths

The opportunity to liaise with like-minded individuals in an open and honest workshop environment will prove extremely valuable to you as you prepare for your future career successes. You will complete two psychometrics designed to strengthen your skills in a management role and assess which skills to focus on for your development.
