Abstract

There is a call for the specific features of women’s leadership development program which
remains underexplored. The purpose of this phenomenological qualitative study was
to explore the lived experiences of women leaders attending leadership development
programs. This study used semi-structured interview to collect data from 11 women
leaders who work at managerial position from different industries and have experienced in
attending leadership programs. Through one-on-one interviews, participants shared their
experiences and perceptions of attending the programs. There were four themes that
emerged from the data, which include mix-gender leadership program, professional
trainers, tailored-made training contents, and training delivery methods. These themes can
be applied for improving women’s leadership development program design. The program
should incorporate the suggested results to conducting further leadership training program
in order to most benefit the leaners.
