Talent Development Programs

“Diversity is the magic. It is the first manifestation, the first beginning of the differentiation of a thing and of simple identity. The greater the diversity, the greater the perfection.”

“This program is invaluable not only in my professional life, but my personal life as well. White Dana’s coaching I was able to identify people who have been my sponsors in the recent past and I did not recognize it. Now that I have, I have been able to leverage those sponsorships to take my career to the next level.”

~ Pamela Hiatt, Senior Corporate Attorney, Microsoft

As systems thinkers we know the value of team, peer & group coaching from a learning, cost savings and impact perspective.

We believe that a diverse organization will out-think and out-perform a homogeneous organization. Investing in women’s leadership is an imperative business strategy for attracting, retaining and developing top talent. Given the leadership strengths women bring plus the link between gender diversity and return on investment it is clear organizations will not be operating at their full potential until they address the barriers to women’s advancement.

Corporations with large percentages of women on their executive leadership teams gain returns that are 35% higher than those with few women in positions of leadership. CEO’s view the advancement of women as critical, yet 60% report they lack the understanding of work-related challenges that women face and what needs to be done to develop them (Catalyst, 2004).

Retention and growth of women and women ethnic minorities requires targeted initiatives. Pulling from seminal research on women’s leadership and hundreds of interviews conducted with thriving women leaders we have developed a program built on the core skills inherent to success.

Our customized 6-12 month Thriving Women’s Leadership Program employs our transformative learning services which include:

  • Anchor Workshops that provide tools and learning of core selected material
  • Peer Coaching Circles that create support and best practice sharing, coupled with peer and coach feedback
  • 1:1 Executive Coaching to identify learning goals and discuss feedback on new skill and behavior development
  • Executive Panels broaden the conversation about what it takes to be a successful female leader, focusing on what thriving behaviors, skills and practices are require
  • Senior Executive Engagement & Sponsorship helps increase visibility, opportunities and growth for women leaders while supporting talent management across the organization.

These learning services can be bundled to specifically meet your learning objectives and project scope.

“I have seen a consistent increase in my self-confidence and ability to contribute to my team. In particular, learning about my own strengths and leadership through the peer mentoring sessions was key to forming my identity at work. I implemented the learnings to influence my team to improve our sprint process, and saw a positive difference to the team.”

Utilizing a peer to peer coaching model the group builds trust, belonging, and knowledge with cross-pollination and development of skills and best practices.

To promote the development and retention of new hires and to increase the breadth and depth of the talent pool, Leaders Thrive has developed a peer onboarding program where participants can meet monthly to share their stories, knowledge, and experiences. The result is exponential growth of leadership bench strength and a sense of community.
