The Odyssey Leadership program originated in 2013 when we asked our member companies what else they would need to support women in their organizations. Out of the list of options, all our respondents agreed that they would appreciate a tailored leadership development program for their female talent. In response to that, Odyssey partnered with the company ATAIRU to design the Odyssey Leadership program.
This 10-month cross-company leadership program is designed for talented women. Its purpose is to support women in developing authentic and effective style of leadership, gain more confidence and courage and create a broader network of like-minded women in Czech business. So far, more than 90 women from over a dozen different companies participated in this program.
After the program, the women reported improvements in self-confidence, in their ability to lead and engage others, and deal with stress or difficult situations. Altogether, they felt more balanced and satisfied both at work and in personal life.
