The Women in Leadership Program (WLP)

Women in Leadership: Costs and Benefits

The Benefits of the Women’s Leadership Summit:


Over 80% of companies worldwide see leadership as a major challenge. Fewer than 10% feel they are ready to meet this challenge.


Women in leadership must learn how to skillfully and confidently:

  • Resolve conflict.
  • Deliver clear expectations.
  • Conduct coaching conversations.
  • Deal with every communication style.
  • Overcome barriers to leadership and advancement.


Women in leadership must build networks that discuss:

  • Meeting challenges with grace and confidence.
  • Action plans for an integrated business life.
  • Taking care of me, taking care of others.
  • New options and ideas for support systems.


Given these resources, women in leadership will:

  • Show executive poise and presence.
  • Make accountability a force for good.
  • Ask great questions.
  • Create ‘Impact on Business’: the new ROI for leaders.


Additional Topics:

  • Recognition and rewards: What you want, what they need.
  • What neuroscience tells us about leadership behavior…. and how to improve it, permanently.


High-performing companies spend 1.5 to 2 times more on leadership than other companies, and reap results that are triple or quadruple the levels of their competitors. Their investments must be well-informed, and engage true world leaders that create permanent, positive changes in business behavior.
