What we do.
It's no secret that there is a lack of female representation at the c-suite level. Glass ceilings are a reality, and while we are shattering them at record numbers, it's essential to have support. Let's face it, our superpower as women is our ability to connect on a deep level. A strong female support system offering connection, advice, and friendship are crucial to continued career advancement.
Mentoring & Coaching
This is the place where we give back. Our experiences as women in business, women in leadership, and as women executives provide us with knowledge that needs to be shared with the next generation of women executives. We have the gift of hindsight, lessons we've learned, challenges we've overcome. We know what we would do differently, what advice we'd give to our younger selves and what we wish we would have known. Let's share that gift and change the future of leadership for women.
We as women need a place where it's safe to share the challenges we face both professionally and personally without appearing weak (as if that's a bad thing). Breaking down the walls we build to protect us is the true secret to changing the future of leadership. Learning to be vulnerable, to show the world our true authentic selves as leaders is how the landscape starts to shift. We accomplish this through empowerment.
The definition of empowerment (according to google) is, "authority or power given to someone to do something. The process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one's life and claiming one's rights."
Empowerment is how we become stronger. It's how we build confidence in ourselves and the next generation of leaders.
Leadership development for women is critical for anyone advancing their career but especially for those aspiring to the c-suite. Gender neutral leadership development programs often miss the very challenges that female leaders face daily. We discuss topics and challenges specific to women in leadership.
Studies show that women initiate negotiations 4x less than male counterparts, nearly 50% of men think women are well represented in leadership in companies where only one in ten senior leaders is a woman, and female leaders who are assertive, direct and authoritative are seen more negatively than men. We discuss topics such as speaking up in meetings, conflict resolution, salary negotiations, balancing work and family, overcoming gender stereotypes, and more.
We want to change the paradigm and we do that through professional development combined with mentoring & coaching.
