Shatter the Glass Ceiling by Coaching Women Who Lead

International Women’s Day was March 8. In the modern workplace, there’s been an important conversational shift taking place: providing the path for women to find success as best-in-class leaders. This dialogue on how businesses can enable, support, and develop more female leaders is transforming mindsets, resulting in the issue of addressing gender-equality becoming a top priority for organizations around the country. One of the most essential tools in creating equal opportunities for women who lead is supportive coaching that develops executive presence and drives them towards their professional goals.

Professional coaching is an asset for businesses who want to enable women leaders to thrive in their workplaces and can help current leaders create a diverse work culture that drives innovative thinking.

The most effective coaching methods will help career-driven women to:

  • Manage their stress levels
  • Strengthen their executive presence
  • Strategically think about the future of their careers
  • Develop professional relationship building skills
  • Create a future-forward plan to increase influence
  • Increase EI skills and self-awareness

Coaching women for leadership success requires specialized resources and pathways. To recognize International Women’s Day, we encourage organizations to focus on coaching women who lead to create equal opportunity and drive your business forward.

Janice Gair & Hayley Hesseln are co-founders of EI ADVANTAGE and we coach on the foundation of emotional intelligence. We also provide instructor-led, online EI certification for coaches who need new tools for their toolkit. If you are interested, sign up HERE.
