Coaching support that we lent to a woman getting back to work post a series of Transitions.
In 2015, Our Coach Sripriyaa Venkataraman had the opportunity to coach an expat wife/student/mother in Gurgaon, India. The Coachee was struggling to meaningfully transition back to work post her global relocation to a foreign country, maternity and a graduate educational program she was enrolled in.
The coaching support helped the coachee:
We are happy to share a couple of instances where we engaged with women professionals to empower them to confidently with grit, create their personal brand.
This approach gave a fresh lens to the topic where participants shared the feedback that they felt it was a much more ‘grounded and actionable’ approach to build their personal branding. The participants also mentioned that the structure and clarity with which we approached the session helped them take clear actions- which is a welcome shift from some of the motivational sessions that are conducted around these topics of women empowerment. A panel of experts rounded of the session by sharing thier personal experiences and expert recommendations across the 4 powerful dimensions- Foundations, Pillars, Accelerators and Multipliers to building their personal brand.
While we were working with one of the world’s Big 4 Accounting and Advisory firms, to empower their women directors to move into partnership - one of the most important dimensions for them was their brand, and its perception by others.
We created an interesting model within the larger leadership program that helped the participating women professionals, to ‘hot seat’ their personal brand in the context of their larger contributions and receive feedback from the facilitator and also the highly supportive leadership team.
The participants found immense value in these sessions, which subsequently contributed to some of them lessening their time gap to partnership.
