Accelerating growth of women CEOs through peer learning and leadership coaching.
CEO Leadership is an ongoing monthly program that leverages the power of peers to keep women CEOs accountable and connected for remarkable growth.
How we do it:
- Strategy Bootcamp
- Leadership Roundtables
- One to One Coaching
Start by defining your 3-year strategic plan with your team over two 3-hour sessions. You'll detail:
- define a 3-year strategy (3HAG - highly achievable goal) that connects to your annual, quarterly and monthly execution;
- establish targets for each team member to deliver on goals;
- Understand your company's 3-5 differentiating actions and your secret sauce;
- Created shared vision that resonates company-wide.
Next, maintain accountability to your strategic plan and share learnings with your CEO peers during monthly 2-hour sessions.
- Leverage a proven method and software system that will help you grow faster, and ultimately give you back more time in your day;
- Lead with greater clarity;
- Stay accountable to your goals so you can achieve your dreams;
- Learn from and be supported by a community of like-minded, bad-ass women.
Then, expand your leadership capacity with a monthly one-to-one coaching session focused on making you a better CEO.
60 minutes per month with your coach lets you uncover what's working, tricky and what you need to do differently to deliver on your goals.
- help you stay focused;
- provide space to ask those uncomfortable questions in confidence;
- work with people who've been there, done that and want you to succeed.
