It’s undeniable that there is something unique going on with female leaders as they grow their careers. We continue to see growth in the number of women working (in 2010 almost half of the US workforce was women*), but the number of women in senior management has not seen that growth (in 2010 less than 15% of executive officer positions were held by women**).
The challenges of female leaders are not simple and they are not cookie-cutter. Each woman has her own situation that can be best supported with both individual and group approaches:
The Bridge for Female Leaders — Individual Coaching
To best guide and support each woman, MGA starts with a two-hour Discovery Session to create a Life Map which includes goals, priorities, supports, and roadblocks. From there MGA will create a very personal coaching & development plan built around the woman’s individual goals and needs and aligned with the organization.
The Bridge for Female Leaders – Group Workshops
MGA lead powerful group workshops – as a single event or as a series – where women will build trust & mentorship, learn from & support each other, and ultimately strengthen the network of strong female leaders in the organization.
