Gender plays a significant role in the corporate hierarchy and no one knows this better than a high-potential female executive on her way up. This coaching package is targeted at the Vice President moving to Senior Vice President of a function or operating role, or a Senior Director making the career turn to Vice President and General Manager, or a top functional role in a Division. Your operating style and targeted development will need to balance what you are good at with the new skills required to manage your visibility with greater ease.
In addition to a Stakeholder 360 with your sponsor and advocates inside and outside the organization, your direct staff and your peer group will be invited to provide input on your developmental needs: both strengths and gaps. When combined with a comprehensive assessment of your leadership capacity, business acumen, presence, and public speaking skills, your stakeholder
assessment will pinpoint those areas with the greatest leverage for your future success. Your coach will present the findings of your assessment and work with you collaboratively to design a monthly, quarterly, and annual plan for your development. This individual plan will be monitored with the coach on a schedule consistent with your availability.
Most coaching sessions will be in person with supplemental video conference or telephone coaching to meet your demanding schedule. At the end of the first six-month engagement, you can determine the extent of progress achieved and decide to continue for another three to six months. Your coach is available to re-engage with you throughout your career as you receive consistent promotions on your way to the top.
