Women’s Leadership Forum – a unique 6-month group coaching program

jigsaw puzzle pieces coming togetherDo you want to develop leadership skills and foster a network for a group of women at your company? I have a unique 6-month group coaching program, the Women’s Leadership Forum.

I enjoy working with groups of women to help them develop leadership skills highly relevant to their career and closely tied to the company’s culture and business model. Each month in this 6-month leadership program covers a different topic, such as:

  • Building your network strategically
  • Increasing your visibility
  • Rising above office housework
  • Pitching with confidence
  • Ignoring your inner critic
  • Leveraging metrics like an executive
  • Being more strategic
  • Communicating more effectively
  • Creating your personal brand
  • Giving and receiving feedback
  • And other topics to meet your needs

I learned so much from the Women's Leadership Forum -- that building & maintaining relationships is an investment that pays far greater dividends than a clean inbox; to pitch my ideas with passion and confidence, instead of just executing someone else's; to ask for what I want - whether its an important project, resources, or a promotion, rather than hope it comes my way. In short, I've learned to drive my career rather than be a backseat passenger.Testimonial from Chalana Bezawada, Engineering Manager at Intel
The 6-Month Women’s Leadership Forum includes

  • A customized syllabus to meet your group’s needs
  • 6 group coaching sessions, lasting 90 minutes, for up to 15 women at your office
  • Homework assignments, such as activities and worksheets to complete between sessions
  • Monthly 1-on-1 coaching calls (Premium level only)

Impact

In 2016, a large Silicon Valley company hired Karen to run the Women’s Leadership Forum for two groups. They found the program had a strong impact on both employee engagement and skill development.

Because of the Women’s Leadership Forum, attendees

  • Developed skills that have an impact on the business (100%)
  • Felt more prepared for their next promotion (100%)
  • Built relationships that will benefit their career at the company (100%)
  • Have the skills to effectively mentor other women (92%). This is a significant indicator of scalability for this client.
  • Were more likely to recommend the company as a great place to work (100%)

Why Karen?

As an experienced executive, I understand the challenges women face in tech companies. As someone who has been a start-up CEO and has led shared software services groups in larger companies, I have strategies for networking, increasing visibility, measuring impact, communicating with stakeholders, improving employee engagement, and driving change across an organization. As a working parent, I know how difficult it can be to balance everything.
