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.

Women of the World in Leadership (WOW Factors)

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.

While interacting with senior women leaders, we discovered three key milestones in their journey – Arrive, Strive and Thrive. Each of these inflection points represent a diverse set of priorities and challenges in their leadership journey.
