Using data from leadership research, mainstream media and evidence-based results from coaching over 900 women, Jodie Charlop and Gene Gallivan lead a program that puts the obstacles on the table so women can design a more conscious and powerful path to leadership. Through assessment, interactive lecture, coaching and peer dialog, this program empowers women to change their personal script about leadership to unleash their greater potential – and ensure organizations are not deprived of the value of exceptional female talent.
Emerging leaders and women in early or middle management roles that have a desire to pursue next step leadership opportunities.
Webinar One: Accelerating the Leadership Power of Women: The Five Stages of Women’s Careers
Are you ready to lead? What’s standing in your way?
Women may represent nearly 50% of the workforce, but the number of women leading in our largest institutions remains remarkably low – and stagnate. Women hold less than 15% of officer level roles within the Fortune 500, only 7.6% of the top earner spots and 1.6% of CEO spots. Yet, women want to achieve, grow and develop in their careers. In fact, leadership research shows women have achievement orientation equal to male counterparts, start out as very strong achievers -- often outpacing their male counterparts in excelling in school and achieving successes in early management positions. In the early stages of career potential is high, confidence and optimism is plentiful. Then complexity sets in -- the unique intersection of cultural and organizational influences that test confidence and resiliency, role and identity conflict, and paradigms, beliefs and behaviors that shift career optimism into career conflict or career plateau that more often keep many women in middle management at best and not fully realizing their full leadership potential.
In this special complimentary web dialog, Executive Coach Jodie Charlop shares a unique perspective on the Five Stages of Women’s Careers and the development hurdles and opportunities that must be addressed to ensure women can unleash their full potential – and ensure organizations are not deprived of the value of exceptional female talent. Note, this topic is not just for the ladies. We invite male leaders, fathers and colleagues who want to fully support closing the gender gap in our organizations!
Webinar Two: Creating Space to Lead: Overcoming the Production Trap
Did you know that the research on Type A stress behavior was done on men? In fact, women manifest stress behaviors very differently than men. Women are Type E x 2, Everything to Everybody! Your boss is asking that you do more with less. Your significant other, children and friends want more of your time. Toughest of all, you demand of yourself that you satisfy all their needs. Paradoxically, in the basic premise of supply and demand, the more you give, the more you devalue yourself – especially in the workplace. In this special complimentary web dialog, Executive Coach Jodie Charlop helps you increase your awareness of beliefs and paradigms which are stealing your time, your power and your success. Make new choices that can help you be more powerful and help you create space to lead.
Rise Up Ladies, It’s Time to Change Your Leadership Story. Kick off session sets the stage with an interactive dialog on trends and issues impacting women in professional settings. Program introduces the five stages of career development for women and guides women to reality check where they are in the development cycle and examine “unfinished business” in key areas of growth and development. Interactive lecture will guide women to examine the impact of culture, identity, relationships, power and influence.
Who am I - Personal Me-Professional Me. Women have a greater need to integrate their full being versus compartmentalizing home and work. Examine personal and professional identity – and increase awareness of congruence and role conflict. Explore past to present career choices via story boarding and group dialog. Review Insights Discovery Profile. Assess congruence of personal self and professional self, core strengths and development opportunities that are impacting career satisfaction, professional growth and desire and pursuit of greater leadership opportunities within the organization. Assess how values play a role in perceptions of leadership identity.
From Producer to Leader: Belief Systems and Perceptions of Leadership. Women are so busy producing and tending to commitments that adding more time for growth and leadership feels like another daunting “to-do.” Explore self-perceptions and misperceptions of managing versus leading, navigating professional complexity and becoming the “CEO” of your domain. Introduce the construct of Overcoming the Production Trap and how production behaviors paradoxically devalue women in the work place.
Your Needs, Wants and Wishes: Creating Your Leadership Vision from Your Core. Move leadership vision from transactional view to a more holistic evaluation of core needs, wants and wishes and alignment to personal strengths and gifts.
Emotional Intelligence (EI) -- A Competitive Advantage for Women. Leadership research directly attributes emotional intelligence to leadership success. Accumulated research also demonstrates women score higher in six out of seven EI skills. Learn to reframe, manage and fully leverage emotions as powerful assets that can be fully embraced for personal satisfaction and greater effectiveness. Assess how emotions impact confidence, risk taking and visibility.
What’s Your Relationship with Power? Women score relatively equal to men in areas of achievement but when it comes to power (need to lead and have impact), societal influences and personal belief systems shift into high gear and stall women at middle management. Ask a woman if she wants to be more powerful and interesting dynamics occur. Increase awareness of different types of power in the workplace and how that directly links to advancement and leadership.
Visible or invisible: Showing Up and Getting Heard in a Noisy World. Explore the vital need to be your own best self-advocate. Recognize behaviors that may be stealing your voice and limiting recognition. Reframe and increase comfort with strategic visibility.
Creating Personal and Professional Support Systems. Explore the role of personal support systems and professional support systems for sustained satisfaction and success. Includes the role coaches, mentors and sponsors play in professional success and advancement to leadership roles. Gain confidence in how to have a powerful “coaching” conversation with your boss, mentors and sponsors.
Developing Your Path to Leadership. Closing dialog and peer work session to create an action plan and timeline for your path to leadership. Review of custom work journal to continue a path of development.
