Find Your Voice

Empowering Women at Work

Companies perform better when women are represented in senior leadership. We know this, and yet so many organizations struggle with retaining and helping women advance, particularly in traditionally male dominated industries like technology, manufacturing, and sales.

Studies show that some key factors in retaining women include: 

  • Helping them build strategic relationships,
  • Providing role models and mentors,
  • Helping them build senior relationships, and
  • Offering training and development opportunities.

Although many organizations have made incredible progress (and realized the successes), the fact remains that in most organizations, women must figure out their own tricky path to success.

Whether you represent an organization working to improve the gender balance or you’re a woman struggling to carve your path, we can help.

Organizations

Does your organization have a formal strategic plan to balance the gender equation? Do you have a women’s network, targeted coaching, training, or even an understanding of the gender imbalance in your teams? 

If not, we can help. We offer:

  • Strategic Planning
  • Group Workshops (onsite or at a location near you)
  • Group Retreats (scroll to the bottom to read about our next retreat)
  • Women’s Network Facilitation
  • Organizational Training

Contact us, and let’s talk about how we can help your organization empower its women to drive even better business results.

Empowering Introverts at Work

You don’t have to be a woman to struggle with Finding Your Voice.

One of the most common reasons we hear from men who feel unable to speak up at work is “I’m an introvert.”

Contrary to popular belief, introverts are not just shy and quiet people who are afraid to open their mouths. Actually, they are people who prefer to think about what they are about to say before they say it.

This act of thinking or pondering can cause a delay that, for extroverts (people who tend to think out loud), signals fear of speaking or a lack of anything to say.

So how can you Find Your Voice and contribute?

Ask us. Our coaching packages can help you learn to, as we like to say, “Flex the Other Muscle” and find the hidden extrovert in you.
