Less than 24% of women are currently in the pipeline headed to executive leadership and 65% don't think they are being prepared or ready for leadership.

The majority of women never though they could become CEO until a mentor told they they could. 49% of women don't apply for advancement because of perceived biases


We Know The Problem:

Women Remain Significantly Underrepresented in Executive Leadership, Especially Women of Color. To Make Significant Impact, Companies Must Change The Way They Promote Women into Entry and Mid-Level Management Positions, and Women Who are Promoted Must Continue to Advance.

What We Haven't Addressed:

Helping Frontline Managers See Potential and Predict Capacity.

How do we advance motivations and key drivers of success for women?

How do we accelerate upskill development for all women in your ranks?

How do we help managers find the confidence to utilize effective tools to develop women?

Leadership and Uplevel Development for Manager

What are the key drivers of success for women, and how do you tap into it earlier? This certification course is designed for managers, human resources, recruiters, and talent development professionals who are tasked with accelerating upskills development of women. We help attendees spot talent earlier, identify the traits and drivers of success, and move beyond competency-based leadership development to transformational growth. An investment in workforce transformation pays dividends because it inspires, rather than demands the right behaviors, and it sets new expectations for those leading people. A changing workplace demands a new approach to developing women leaders. The way we recruit, retain, engage, prepare, incentivize, and reward high-achieving women - must change. This course focuses on four key areas: Recruiting, Retaining, Engaging, and Developing women.

"Your Frontline Managers Need Guidance to Develop Women into Leaders"

Fact, most managers were promoted into management without a single management training class. Years after being promoted most managers have never been trained to coach and develop their teams, but somehow we expect them to upskill and build out a bench of potential leaders. How does that happen without adequate guidance?

The Number One Reason Why Your Managers Need to Attend Our Courses:

There is no uniformity and limited guidance to help frontline managers develop team members and there's zero knowledge about how to develop women. Who gets developed and who gets promoted is subjective, riddled with inequity, and often lacks transparency. To change the advancement numbers for women - this root cause must be addressed.
