There is a huge opportunity for empowering women managers and leaders who could be role models for other women to work, contribute and thrive. Organizations are facing a gender diversity challenge at the Leadership level that threatens their innovation and inclusion goals.
In addition to building the knowledge and skills for women to move into Leadership, organizations also need to reduce the perception gap in organizations that see women as less capable, and therefore hold limited growth potential. With less than 10% Board representation on average, there is tremendous opportunity for women to move into leadership.
Leadership is a journey, which is not predicated only on gender. It is the awareness and choice of specific masculine and feminine traits and their interplay within situations, that provide the opportunities to progress towards Leadership. Our Empowering Women into Leadership engagement empower women with multiple perspectives, so that they can exercise their best choices, as they proactively take action to navigate their path to Leadership.

How do we engage?
Empowering Women into Leadership is a responsibility, which we take seriously.
Therefore, this workshop engagement is structured into a series of perspectives that provide the woman leader with the necessary breadth and depth of knowledge and skills, to apply the learning to their current challenges.
At the end of the workshop, you will have the opportunity to hear from accomplished
women leaders on their experiences – through these six multiple perspectives.
This will help you connect the dots for your interconnected action plan to
achieve your true potential.
In the Physical perspective, we engage in activities that give participants the appreciation for the condition of their own bodies, and its implications on their self-leadership.
In the Managerial perspective, we provide multiple situations that help the participants to translate their new-found knowledge to real-life situations, thus improving their situational fluency.
In the Psychological perspective, we provide opportunities for participants to role-play important aspects of concepts like the drama triangle, so that they become fluent in the positions that their team members could adopt, and how they could address them.
In the Political perspective, you will learn how to build Power, so that you can engage in Constructive Politics. Peer Coaching within this perspective will allow you the opportunity to develop other leaders and develop yourself.
In the Cultural Perspective, we discover a vocabulary for us to understand our differences, and to build a plan to leverage our differences to achieve more.
In the Spiritual perspective, you will build a collage for the purpose of your life – this will lend meaning, direction, conduct and control of your life and its choices.
Through the medium of dance and music, you will learn to discover and unleash the Archetypes within you – these are the hidden powers that exists within all of us that we can call upon at will to achieve more.

Client Engagement Scenarios
Helps you better understand the depth of our engagements
- Voice, Empowering your Identity and Discovering your Purpose
Dearth of diversity at the top and the dismal pipeline of diverse talent is the lament within many organizations and our client was no exception. With less than 6% representation of Women in their Partnership Pool, there was a crying need to empower the next generation of women leaders to play at the partner level. This is when they turned to Global Coaching Lab to design and develop an intervention that would empower more women into partnership
Empowering Women into Leadership - Any engagement on empowerment needs to be holistic, interconnected and comprehensive. This was the approach we utilized with our client women Leaders, wherein we exposed every women leader to possibilities of six perspectives – the physical, the managerial, psychological, cultural, political and spiritual perspectives. Working through these six perspectives helped the women leaders frame their business case and personal case for partnership even better. Significant opportunities for cross group collaboration, peer coaching, roleplaying and mock presentations helped every woman leader stretch to their full potential.
Women representation within the partnership pool has doubled and is moving well to its global trajectory of 30% women representation among partners.
