WOW - World of Women in Leadership

Women in Leadership 

Do you have a plan for your star performing women leaders and aspiring women leaders from leaning out?

Most research on women leaders predominantly focus on their climb up the ladder. But what are the delights and dilemmas faced by women in senior leadership roles? We wanted to build empirical evidence through strong narratives with a focus on identifying competencies that helped women ARRIVE, STRIVE and THRIVE.  

Our research led us to a unique trademarked framework to engage and promote women leaders in every critical interface in their careers. We proudly call this research The Leadership Geometry™ and the framework is called The Sacred Corridor for Leadership™, for women professionals.

The research and its findings have helped us devise a practical and highly experiential learning journey to help organisations and women professionals to connect the dots between their profession, passion and purpose.

Our highly experienced team of global mentors and coaches are committed to creating meaningful transformations for women at work and the diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging strategies and policies for organisations. Our exclusive solutions for promoting women leadership include curated mentoring journeys, powerful coaching engagements and uniquely crafted vital programmes in the space of Women Leadership Development.

Global Coaching Lab’s Trademarked Women Leadership Framework

This is a powerful three-step framework that helps women leaders deeply reflect and practically devise strategies across Portals of Entry, Rituals of Passages and the Sanctum of Possibilities.

Women of the World in Leadership (WOW Factors) Research Study – Facts, Perspectives and Stories

WOW FACTORS is a qualitative study drawing narratives from 26 women across 17 geographies and a myriad of industries. In-depth interviews were conducted with the study participants that ranged from 75 to 120 minutes, which were recorded and later transcribed. With over 2600 minutes of live interaction, the narratives that emerged are enriching and inspiring.

Welcome to WOW Factors, a Celebration of Women Leaders who personify the power of intent, who share perspectives that amplify their impact, and empower possibilities for those who look up to them!
