The Own Your Voice Program
We need more women and greater diversity in our workplaces than ever before given the challenges we face of a complex and ever-changing world. And yet, most women are struggling to share their ideas, speak up in meetings and grow their leadership presence despite the time, effort and money spent in leadership development.
I’ve spent many years researching the gap between a woman’s competence and her confidence to take the risks that are critical to an organization’s growth and success. My research is built upon the work of many brilliant minds in social psychology, positive psychology, organizational psychology, not to mention leadership studies, gender studies, and evolutionary studies.
What has resulted is Own Your Voice, a pioneering and evidence-based program* that helps women build implicit feelings of confidence in order to find their purposeful voice.
*The program was studied in a Randomized Control Trial (RCT) with a longitudinal experimental design. The outcomes showed promising results in building multiple aspects of leadership for the 142 working women from a variety of professions and career stages who participated in the program.
Benefits of the Own Your Voice Program:
- Increased courage to speak up in meetings and communicate and negotiate with presence
- Greater agency and a belief in their ideas and ability to take risks and bring about change
- Greater autonomy and a sense of purpose that drives their decisions
- The ability to manage self-doubt, take risks and learn from the outcomes
- The ability to identify and work through limiting beliefs and subconscious biases
- Increased empathy and an ability to engage in win-win communication
- Increased sense of engagement, commitment and meaning in their work
- Desire to mentor and sponsor other women and build a pipeline of female leadership potential
3 WAYS OF BRINGING THE PROGRAM TO YOUR ORGANIZATION
- A Webinar series offered completely online
- A Series of 2 hour of half day Workshops
- A combination of online and in-person delivery
All participants will be registered on an online platform where they’ll receive recordings of the sessions, and worksheets and additional material that will help them take the learning forward after the sessions.
Please get in touch to discuss your employees’ and organization’s unique needs.
We’ll be happy to customize the Own Your Voice program for your team.
