Women’s* Leadership

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

Let’s start with a clarification: women are already just as capable as men to hold senior positions. Our services are 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.

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

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

Women hold just 31% of worldwide senior management roles. (catalyst.org. https://www.catalyst.org/research/women-in-management/), so it can be hard to find an effective leadership style without depending on the masculine-coded behaviors we have learned from observing other leaders. While those masculine-coded behaviors “work”, using both masculine- and feminine-coded behaviors can make you extraordinary.

The world needs more feminine leadership. That is our (somewhat controversial) premise for our leadership programs designed for women (FLINTA*). We help you explore what characteristics and behaviors from the traditionally feminine side might enhance your leadership and personal well-being.

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 different professional and personal selves. This blending of work environments has also created more priority for aspects we consider more feminine, such as relationship focus and well-being in leadership.

Make sure to also check out Margo’s book, The Four Channels of Confidence. Written for women (and helpful for men too), it is an essential guide with practical strategies and inspiring insights to build and sustain confidence.

We believe everyone benefits from a balanced mix of masculine AND feminine-coded leadership traits and skills.

  • That’s why Coaching Without Borders specializes in leadership development programs designed by women for all women (and open to every gender).

    Afterall, the highest performing teams are the most diverse…. and the lowest performing teams are also the most diverse. It all depends on what you do with the diversity. Many companies hire for diversity and train for conformity. And this is when outstanding performance inevitably fades. Our leadership programs help you embrace the (sometimes bumpy) process of learning to include the new perspectives diversity can bring.

Many of our coaches specialize in coaching female leaders and Margo’s specialty is coaching top executive women, who want to stay confident in male-dominated board rooms.

*When we use the terms women or female, we mean: FLINTA (Female, Lesbian, Intersex, Non-Binary, Trans and Agender)

” I had a great opportunity to meet Margo at one of her workshops that she led in Zurich. I found her very professional and resourceful, with excellent people and outstanding presentation skills. She is very approachable, with fantastic people, communication, leadership and coaching skills.
