Through our decades of coaching and leadership development work, we have found that senior female leaders often struggle with similar things:

  • Feelings of inadequacy
  • Not feeling able to show up as their true selves
  • Deprioritising their own mental health in service of others
  • People pleasing; needing to feel liked or accepted
  • Being the minority in the room and lacking peer support
  • Underrepresenting themselves and their own achievements
  • Reluctance or fear around having candid and courageous conversations
  • Difficulties with influencing decision making

By attending our Women Who Thrive group coaching programme, you will be given the tools to overcome these challenges through a mixture of group and 121 coaching sessions, in addition to building a strong network with other senior female leaders outside of your company.

What you'll learn

  1. How our mind-set and strengths show up: Increase your self-awareness through focusing on your mind-set, curiosity and strengths. Undertake a Strengthscope360 psychometric assessment to seek feedback to understand how other people experience you. Identify your strengths in overdrive which highlight performance risks.
  2. The stories we tell ourselves: Identify your helpful and unhelpful internal narratives. Reframe the stories you tell yourself that get in the way and contribute to you not showing up as you would like to. Understand what presses your buttons at work, how to reframe your thinking and choose to think, then act differently. Learn techniques on how to dial down rumination and self-criticism.
  3. Moving into our power- dismantling imposter phenomenon: Focus on building a stronger sense of self. Become clear on where you play small and why. Release the need to be liked and please others.
  4. How to protect our wellbeing: Get better at saying ‘no’ and giving yourself the permission to set boundaries with others at work. Identify guardrails to put into place to protect your wellbeing – implementing self-care practices that work.
  5. Increasing our influencing bandwidth: Focus on effectively managing the executive / senior leader dynamic and conflict by increasing your repertoire of influencing practices. Reset unhelpful relationship dynamics at work to increase your impact.
  6. Leaning into candid conversations: Explore your comfort with discomfort and your level of conflict debt with others. Up your game in how you approach candid conversations to shift unhelpful dynamics with others.
