About the programme


In partnership with Women in Social Housing (WISH), this programme will support you in exploring and identifying your true self, enabling you to build confidence in your role at work. Building self-awareness and understanding will then enable you to define, with confidence, your own career path. 

The programme focuses on authenticity, raising self awareness around who you are, building confidence and addresses common challenges women face in owning their own careers. 

Throughout the programme, you will:

  • Be introduced to, and practice, a coaching approach to empower yourself and others

  • Identify career goals and gain an understanding into your intrinsic motivation

  • Develop knowledge of what it means to be authentic

  • Build awareness on your own leadership style

  • Explore personal values - what they are and how these influence (and impact) you at work 

  • Identify career highlights and unique strengths

  • Overcome fears and limiting beliefs which may be holding you back

  • Develop ways to challenge negative self-talk to enable you to move forward

  • Develop your personal ‘brand’ and plan ways to execute a plan of influencing others to help you reach your career goals

  • Build awareness around your personal needs in order to maintain resilience and boundaries at work

  • Leave feeling empowered, inspired and knowledgeable about what you want next in your career

‘Unlocking Your Potential’ is designed to be supportive yet empowering for women who want to take control of their own careers and personal development. It includes:

  • An introduction call with the programme coach

  • 18 hours of group coaching over 6 sessions

  • Opportunities for private reflection and journaling practice

  • Structured and guided activities 

  • Breakout discussions and reflection with peers

  • Opportunities to connect with peers in between sessions

  • Support from the programme coach throughout the programme

  • A range of resources for continued reading and learning​

  • A 1-2-1 coaching session with Gemma

Who is this programme for?

This programme is specifically designed for women who work in the UK housing sector. 


Whether you’re starting out in your career, a first time manager, looking for your next career move, or simply want to build self awareness and confidence to work out who you are as a leader, this programme will provide the time, space and guidance to own your career, embrace your identity and uncover your authentic self.


“Authenticity is the daily practice of letting go of who we think we’re supposed to be and embracing who we are”

Brene Brown


You are likely to be curious about personal development and developing a growth mindset. You want to better understand yourself so that you become increasingly comfortable with who you are, loosening the reliance on any ‘masks’ you wear and role-model the practice of being true to yourself with those around you. 


You want to work with like-minded women on a similar journey who will support, and share with the same generosity that you intend to.


You want to build confidence and drive your career forward in a way that is aligned with your values, needs and purpose. 


You may already be a leader with the job title to match, you may be about to embark on your leadership journey stepping into your first leadership role, you may strive to call yourself a leader in the future. 


We believe anyone can be a leader regardless of your job title.

I can't thank you enough for your sessions. I've loved them and I can't tell you how much clearer and happier I feel about myself. I now understand the journey that I need to take to gain further confidence by 'just doing it' rather than overthinking it! I'm looking forward to putting some time to all the resources that you've shared. I'm going to go over my course notes to create messages for me around my desk, so I can keep you and the rest of the group's words in my head when I put myself out of my comfort zone again.

Previous participant, April 2022

Work and personal life can place enormous pressures on you and balancing that can be very difficult. Gemma has helped me to realise that creating that balance is important both for my role and development at work and for my own well-being. She has focused my mind on the important matters and what I want to achieve, enabling me to sift through what doesn’t need to be a priority and therefore shouldn’t be weighing me down.
