Our signature program: Advancing Talented Women

Our curriculum is built on six targeted, one-day courses designed to help high-potential women gain critical skills, habits, and mindsets to support the growth of a successful career. They respond directly to common pitfalls for women in business outlined in our Women of Influence White Paper on the Solutions to Women’s Advancement, which examines how top female executives define their leadership style, strengths, and challenges.

Revolving around the concept of influence, and based on the evidence of blind spots and pitfalls that have caused women to falter on their path to the top, our specialized and practical course material can be immediately applied for results in the workplace.

In this innovative curriculum, women learn to:

  • Remain empowered when stress levels are high
  • Improve their leadership capability through times of conflict and change
  • Grow influence by learning how to be bold without being abrasive
  • Gain insights into common pitfalls in leadership styles and tools to navigate workplace challenges
  • Refine leadership presence
  • Leverage personal brand
  • Network strategically


Customized to your organization’s needs

Every engagement begins with a conversation about what your organization needs to advance. We’ll then work with you to build a customized program, ranging in length from one day up to eighteen months, and designed to address the specific pain points of your female employees, enabling them—and ultimately your organization—to thrive.

Our programs can include:

  • Courses from our signature curriculum addressing common career pitfalls for women
  • Keynote speeches
  • Executive retreats
  • On-site workshops on a broad range of topics
  • Roundtable discussions
  • Virtual delivery of content and discussions
  • Private executive and/or management coaching
  • Custom workshops on sponsorship, mentoring, and coaching
