Who am I in this world?

You start your quest for authenticity by examining the world you’ve made for yourself as a leader and step outside of it. In doing so, you begin to develop higher self-awareness and “wake up” your authentic self.

Key Outcomes:

  • Develop self-awareness through assessments, one-on-on coaching and introspection.
  • Gain emotional intelligence about yourself - understand who you truly are.
  • Recognize that you have habitual behavior patterns.

How do I relate to myself and the world?

You experience a breakthrough in what’s holding you back and move to the growth edge. By recognizing and interrupting your habitual responses, you break your old mold and change your mind. You shift your focus from what to do and instead focus on how to be.

Key Outcomes:

  • Understand how neuroscience and your identity, attitudes, values, and behaviors impact how you are being.
  • Uncover, understand, and address your unconscious biases and lead inclusively.
  • Interrupt automatic responses and create space for choice.

How do I nurture connection?

You experience an expanded capacity and toolset to think and act differently - to be different. You learn to lead authentically, help others be all they can be, hold yourself and others accountable and operate inclusively.

Key Outcomes:

  • Widen your perspective and challenge your assumptions.
  • Develop powerful communication skills to better listen, validate, understand, connect with and persuade others.
  • Intentionally develop a personal brand.

So, what makes the
Chrysalis Program®
for Women Leaders Different

First, my transformation gives me both the knowledge and empathy to guide others through making deep changes. That transformation started when I was an executive myself, and my assistant told me I had left a lot of “damage behind me”.

Those words shook me out of complacency and overconfidence and sent me on a journey of questioning everything about myself and what I was meant to do. In that journey, I experienced countless leadership programs myself — and I learned a lot about what doesn’t work.

That made me passionate about figuring out what does work when it comes to developing future-ready leaders. How do adults learn and grow?

I found the answers in the science behind vertical development. Vertical leadership development isn’t about picking up a couple of new skills or competencies. Instead, it’s about expanding your mind and seeing things in a whole new way.

Using the ideas of vertical development, the Chrysalis Program for Women Leaders meets participants where they are and provides the perfect conditions for transformation. Time and again, I see the magic happen when a group or of leaders commits to changing together. They make profound shifts as individuals. But that’s only the beginning. The truly exciting part is how they spread that positive change to so many others.

And that’s why I love what I do. The Chrysalis Program for Women Leaders allows me to use my expertise and experience to change the world by changing leaders.

Infinite Perspective Your guide to leadership development in a fast-changing world

Your Guide to Leading with an

Infinite Perspective

Most leaders readily understand and appreciate where there are opportunities for their own leadership growth and development. For example, which of their habits would be helpful to change? What should they keep doing, stop doing and start doing? Your Guide to Leading with an Infinite Perspective explains exactly how to grow and develop as a leader. It will guide you to strike the right balance between challenge and support, not simply to add more strategies to your toolset, but to grow vertically so you can better lead in complexity - to be a future-ready leader.
