2019 Set Yourself Up to Succeed Programmes


Back to Work after Maternity Leave:-


DUBLIN: Thursday 4th April 2019


DUBLIN: Thursday 3rd October 2019






Thursday 4th April 09:30-16:30, Blackrock Co Dublin

A one day workshop for women who are soon finishing maternity leave or have recently gone back to work from maternity leave. 


Some people find themselves dreading it. Some look forward to getting their brain back in action, getting dressed up and being able to take a coffee or lunch in peace. Many are a combination of both with a bit of self-doubt thrown in… Can I still do my job? (Yes, you can) Will I be able to manage? (Yes, you will). Will colleagues and managers see me differently? (Maybe but it's up to you to manage that.)


More than a tactical intervention addressing the challenges that most of us face:- overwhelm, guilt, juggling, confidence and competing priorities that impact many women in this mid career phase, this Programme addresses these challenges and more. 


This Back to Work from Maternity Leave Programme can be considered as a more holistic career intervention during an often challenging career phase for women (not just for mums). It is often at management level that women can get stuck in the tactical, head down, working hard mindset - at the expense of recognising the importance of holding your space and your brand, being aware of the importance of presence, delegation, influencing and upward management.


This programme supports attendees in managing the here and now, to actively manage this phase of your career as well as helping you to keep an eye on what's next. We focus on how you are setting yourself up to succeed not just for the next twelve months but beyond too. 


If you think that you could benefit from taking some time out to work through the range of challenges facing women going back to work after maternity leave, join us for our next workshop run by Dearbhalla Baviera, Executive Coach and Faciltator. Clearbird has been running this popular programme now for over five years both in-house and twice a year in open programmes.


Dearbhalla specialises in feeding the female leadership pipeline by:-

- empowering women to help them navigate through the sometimes challenging mid career phase

- mentoring emerging and aspiring female leaders to actively managing the transition from mangement through to leadership.
