Your challenge: Women leaders are still the minority in organizations. Despite efforts to promote gender equality and the strong business case for gender balanced leadership, women are under-represented in leadership roles. Due to their gender, women leaders face biases, double standards and organizational dynamics which erect barriers to their leadership. This is why we created the Women in Power (WIP) online course: To help women leaders own their career ambition and step into their full leadership power. Furthermore, on the organizational level, WIP provides decision makers with practical solutions to intentionally bring about gender balanced leadership and promote high potential women.

Our solution: Women in Power offers a flexible and safe environment that supports women leaders to step into their full leadership power by overcoming intra-personal, interpersonal and organizational barriers in a community of like-minded women. The course combines rich online content with group and 1-1 coaching in a community of supportive like-minded women.

Navigate the leadership labyrinth with skill and confidence

Step into your leadership power and ambition

Leave behind self-criticism and feel empowered

It's your turn to become a Woman in Power

Being a leader or person of influence involves much more than achieving a leadership position, acquiring new skills and adapting one’s style to the demands of that role. It requires a core identity shift.

To support this identity shift and help you step into your full leadership power, we will explore intra-personal, interpersonal and organizational barriers to women’s advancement and leadership traction. You will learn practical solutions and tools that will allow you to overcome these limiting barriers and influence your organization towards gender balanced leadership.
