Why We Do This
Most leadership consultants are hired to support only mid- and senior-level women leaders in an organization. This is an important service that needs to be continued as women continue to be underrepresented at the highest levels of leadership (read more in the McKinsey & Company report here).
At the same time, we are not spending enough attention to largest segment of women in our society: those who are emerging as new leaders or represent underserved populations.
That’s 50% of the entry-level workforce!
In addition, large complex organizations benefit from developing leaders who are successful at navigating the various policies, politics, and hierarchical, matrixed, and cross-functional networks. This doesn’t happen overnight and it doesn’t happen with pre-packaged one-size-fits-all programs. To make that kind of change and impact, you need:
High-level expertise in implementing change at individual, team, and organizational levels.
Credibility based on extensive knowledge, training, and experience - having a “coaching certificate” or having been a manager in one specific organization is simply not enough to know how to navigate increasingly complex systems and politics.
