Women’s Leadership

Reach out to us

Do you see things differently than your colleagues? Do you have ideas but find yourself hesitating to follow through?

True confidence means you don’t feel a need to prove yourself.

We help female leaders find the courage to discover & unveil
their authentic leadership styles.

Women hold just 31% of worldwide senior management roles. (catalyst.org)

The world needs more feminine leadership. That is our (somewhat controversial) premise for our female leadership programs. Our dream of bringing humanity to the workplace is starting to come true. Thanks in part to the working-from-home phenomenon accelerated by COVID-19 lockdowns, the leaders of today and tomorrow don’t show a different professional self and personal self. This blending of work environments has also created more priority for aspects we consider feminine such as relationship focus and well-being in leadership.

Nevertheless, the numbers don’t lie. We still have a long way to go to get to gender parity.

We equip you (no matter the gender) with the mindset and skills needed to navigate a predominantly male-driven business world.

We believe everyone benefits from a balanced mix of masculine AND feminine leadership traits and skills. That’s why Coaching Without Borders offers 1:1 coaching and leadership development programs designed by women for women (and open to any gender).

We love working with women because we’ve noticed women are often keen to develop themselves and seem to be more likely than men to seek out opportunities to self-reflect.

It can be hard to find an effective leadership style without depending on the masculine behaviors we have seen from others. While those behaviors work, having a balance is what can make you extraordinary. We help you explore what kinds of characteristics and behaviors from the feminine side might also be beneficial to your leadership and personal well-being.

Our philosophy is simple — we encourage our clients to find their authentic leadership style. There’s no right or wrong one. It can be a mix of masculine and feminine styles or lean more towards one side.

We are also clear: women all already just as capable as men to hold senior positions. This is not about ‘fixing the women’. Our programs instead allow women the opportunity for deep self-reflection in a safe environment. We give women the space to open up, be vulnerable, and build strength and confidence in what they already have to navigate a system that is biased. (implicit.harvard.edu)

After your coaching program, you will be clear about what makes your leadership style unique and how to make it work for you.
