I love it when great ideas come together!
I’ve been noodling on a way to work with women managers for quite some time.
I could see there was a group of women who needed the information I was teaching to my coaching clients as well as the Executive women members of my Roundtable; but I wasn’t sure how to find a cost-effective way to reach them.
I knew they didn’t have the development budgets that executives have.
The pandemic actually gave me the kick in the butt I needed to finally figure it out.
Because of the pandemic, I’ve had to get good at using the technology to work online.
That gave me the confidence and the insight to create a zoom based program.
I designed a pilot cohort leadership development program that has 6 sessions over a period of 3 months. I can offer the program every quarter so organizations can enroll women managers at four different times during the year.
The "Women Managers Leadership Develop Cohort" launched last week.
Twenty-four amazing women are enrolled.
It has been delightful to feel their enthusiasm for learning and participating. There was a deep sense of gratitude on their part for being included in the cohort.
They are finding ways to virtually network and get to know each other.
And I’m having so much fun giving them information about how women lead and putting them into small groups to process and apply the information to their own situations.
We do our second session next week.
I can’t wait to talk with them about our next topic, Emotional Intelligence!
I’m currently enrolling women managers in the 2021 Q1 Cohort, which starts in January.
If you have women managers who report to you and would be good candidates for the development opportunity the cohort offers, please reach out to me.
You’ll be glad you did and they will be appreciative for the opportunity to grow and develop as leaders.
Until next time,
