Future Female Leadership Programme (FFLP)

Take the next step in your career. Join us for a unique leadership programme that will prepare you to become an authentic, competent and effective leader.

The Future Female Leadership Programme is designed to help women in specialist roles, junior and middle management become authentic, competent and effective leaders.

Offered by the Johannesburg Business School in collaboration with Full Potential, the FFLP is about creating a solid pipeline of “ready now” technical young women who can advance into senior, and executive leadership levels.

What to expect

Most young female leaders get promoted into leadership roles because they demonstrated great technical skills and potential to grow, instead of paying attention to the people aspect of their new role, they continue to do what they’ve always done, work on their own projects and technical skills.

The challenge is that being a great technical experts doesn’t automatically translate into being a great leader. During this critical transition organisations do the best they can to support them however it is not enough to get this leaders to the adequate leadership capabilities they require.

To help new technical managers through the transition from individual contributor to:

A leader, at JBS and Full Potential we’ve developed a Future Female Leadership Programme which is a one year continuous development programme aiming to developing authentic,competent and effective leader who are able to lead teams and their
departments to deliver business results.

At the end of the programme as a leader in technical areas you will be able to:

  • Discover your real self through a robust self-awareness journey.

  • Identify your development gaps and integrate them into you learning pathway.
  • Empower you to move from an individual contributor to a true leader.
  • Equip you with Future Fit leadership skills to future proof your career.
  • Develop a 5-year focused career plan.

This programme is designed for:

  • Female between in junior and middle management leadership positions.
  • Ambitious women who have the courage and desire to advance into senior and executive level.
  • Women who want to be a part of something so much bigger than themselves.

The Programme Design

It is on this basis that the Future Female Leadership Programme is based on the two key models, the CAP Leadership Model and the
Future Fit Leadership Model.

The CAP Model adopts a whole person approach to development, it recognise that true professional development is indeed personal. Leadership development traditionally focused on leading by improving others. But before someone can lead and improve others, they must first develop and improve themselves. They must know themselves and how to improve themselves before they can recognise others and identify how to improve them. Taking a whole person approach results in a profound development of leaders, because leaders are able to develop core skill sets that may not be directly
related to their job, but are best practices to successful leadership
within the organization.

  • Our MOONSHOT is to develop a NEW BREED of female African leaders who are able to respond to the changing world.
  • Future Female Leaders Programme contribute directly to the UN Sustainable Development Goal 5: Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.

  • Young women experience discrimination based both on gender and on age. In
    particular, critical gaps in funding and resources for education, skills development
    and mentorship. These impact the ability of young women to realize their full
    potential as leaders.
