Women’s Leadership Community
It’s in group coaching that we gain insights and contribute to each other’s greater leadership and business mastery. It’s a community in the best sense of the word.
Leading in business can be challenging and inspiring. At the same time, managing a team and keeping yourself vital can be exhausting. Do you still find yourself facing perplexing circumstances such as:
You have received critical feedback about your leadership and want to improve.
- You are being groomed for a higher level leadership position, and want to boost your probability of success.
You were overlooked for a promotion and want to improve your chances next time.
- You have a habit you to want to change, but don’t know how.
You know you have to change to grow your business and your people, and you don’t know where to start.
You want to improve the leadership of a daughter to take over your company. Why not bring her with you?
Research tells us that women in business do not have as many sponsors and mentors as they need to move up, they often feel unworthy of the goals they have already achieved, and overwhelmed by all the demands from their personal and professional lives.
“Leadership improvement is about taking small steps forward and evolving just a bit each day. Think evolution, not revolution. Anyone can change one behavior a month, or eliminate one mistake, and suddenly you can be an overnight success.”
What It Is:
For nine months, the monthly sessions of the Women’s Leadership Community teach key leadership tools, practices, and skills with ongoing learning among peers. It is a transformational process that ignites your personal effectiveness as a leader because it is application focused and customized to your needs as a seasoned entrepreneur or a business leader.
The value of the spaced repetition, meeting monthly to learn and reinforce applications, translates to behavioral change that is sustainable. It lasts. You’ll share insights. You’ll share experiences. You’ll conduct live problem solving and develop long-lasting relationships built on mutual respect and fun.
This program is designed to help you enrich your leadership, enhance your influence, and develop your confidence to create a life of significance.

How long does it take to see results?
You will see results immediately because each session offers insights, practices, and applications. What’s great about the results is that you’ll build on them each month, enhancing your understanding and knowledge and mastery of their application. The scheduled repetition of a monthly meeting which reinforces prior learning, guarantees the sustainability of all the lessons learned.
I don’t have a lot of time to spend. Is there much homework?
We know how busy business leaders can be, so we have designed the Women’s Leadership Community to be respectful of that. In addition to the 6.5 hours you will spend in each monthly session, there is a 90-minute Pair Partner Meeting between each monthly session to discuss the brief homework assignment. Past participants have told us their monthly Pair Partner Meetings are one of their favorite aspects of our program. In these meetings, they enjoy discussing applications, learning more about each member of the community because their partner changes each month, and keep the leadership learning alive in between sessions.
Can I pay in installments or is the total Package Fee due up front?
We prefer payment upfront. Payment plans are available upon request, and include a $100 processing fee.

- What has been the impact on your leadership?
- How are you different today than you were nine months ago?
- What are the top three practices you are going to take on to sustain the development of your leadership?
- Any concept, practice, or skill that you would like to discuss for more mastery?
Then we create a plan together for how to best move forward in your leadership effectiveness.
