Do you want to become a leader in your workplace?


Are you silently waiting for a promotion or new responsibilities to come your way? Are you unsure how to communicate your value to bosses who aren’t seeing it in our work-from-home situations?

Join this small group leadership development circle if you’d like to take a strategic step towards progressing in your career.

What is it?

A 6 week co-horted learning experience with six 1 hour sessions.

Here are the topics:

    1. Self-Awareness: Identifying Your Natural Strengths and Stubborn Blind Spots
    2. Influencing Others: Understanding Workplace Communication Styles
    3. Advocate For Yourself: Identifying Your Version of Imposter Syndrome and How To Make An Ask
    4. Professional Relationships: What To Do To Better Collaborate and Identify How You Communicate When in Conflict
    5. Office Politics and Performance Management: Make Yourself Valuable and Make Yourself Visible
    6. Professional Fulfillment: Identify What You Need To Stay Engaged On The Job

At the end of the six weeks, you will be able to:

  • Better advocate of your interests to management and leadership
  • Better navigate conflict
  • Speak with more confidence about your ideas
  • Articulate your strengths and the value you bring to your position and organization at large
  • Work with teams and lead projects with greater ease

By 2030 most jobs will be soft-skill intensive – this means self-mastery and interpersonal skills are the future of work and the foundation of leadership. If you seek growth within your workplace, that means you will need to develop skills in personal leadership, persuasive power, interpersonal savvy, conflict management, and self advocacy.

If you are ready to take your career advancement into your own hands, you are invited to apply for this small group Leadership Development Coaching Circle.

The next cohort begins Wednesday, October 13th, and runs weekly through Wednesday, November 17th.
