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

Do you want to retain your female employees? Increase the diversity of your management team by promoting women from within? Develop leadership skills and foster a network for women at your company?

For the cost of an executive coach for just one person, I coach 15 women to be stronger leaders and be prepared to take on larger management roles. My Women’s Leadership Forum is a unique 6-month group coaching program.

I enjoy working with groups of women to help them develop leadership skills highly relevant to their career and closely tied to your 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
  • Influencing without authority
  • Leveraging metrics like an executive
  • Being more strategic
  • Presenting with confidence
  • Rising above office housework
  • Engaging sponsors and mentors
  • Ignoring your inner critic
  • Creating your personal brand
  • And other topics to meet your needs

Impact
After offering my Women’s Leadership Forum for four cohorts, NextRoll reported:

“Since launching the program we have increased the number of women in people management positions to 40%, up from 27% in 2016, and look forward to growing that number in the coming years.”

Another Silicon Valley company found the Women’s Leadership Forum had a strong impact on both engagement and skill development. Because of my program, their employees:

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 was a significant indicator of scalability for this client.
Were more likely to recommend the company as a great place to work (100%)

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.It was really helpful to have the Women’s Leadership Forum sessions, followed by time to put what we learned into practice, and then to report back. This group has not just been about learning lessons, it has been about trying new ways of doing things, taking risks, and growing!Because of the Women’s Leadership Forum, I have had the most authentic and impactful conversations with our Execs since starting with AdRoll. The “visibility” session really helped me to think about using my time with Execs differently.Testimonial from Chalana Bezawada, Engineering Manager at Intel
