Modern Board Readiness

Tailored for the board seeker, but equally relevant and impactful for the executive looking to develop a strategic approach to leading the business. The curriculum is designed in two parts. First, deeply understand the job of the board and the essentials of board leadership across the full landscape of company types—from public to VC, family-owned, PE and ESOPs—and find your place within it. Then, define your unique board value proposition, learn how to build and leverage your network to find the right opportunities, and get tips to nail the board interview. Led by experienced board directors sharing best practices and practical advice, you’ll deepen your understanding, build your confidence, and create connections that will help advance your path to the boardroom.

Your board journey involves more than learning the skills and doesn’t end with the last session. From office hours to peer groups to help with resume and bio writing and connecting you with board opportunities, our support extends long after you’ve graduated so that you can gather feedback, ask for advice, and get guidance from other women leaders who know where you’ve been and what you’re going through.

Architect Your Second Half

Whether you have been thrust into a transition or you've been contemplating a new move for a while, thinking about your next act can be exciting or intimidating — usually both. Figuring out what’s next is a lot like the creative process … the end product is a masterpiece but getting there can feel messy. The key is peeling back the layers of who and what you’ve been so far to make space for what’s next, waiting in the wings for you.

Your transition can transform in the generative space we will create together: ⇾ Where your capacity to evolve will be set in motion
⇾ Where you will elevate the purpose and meaning of your life—past, present, and future—and weave it all together into a clear and impactful whole
⇾ Where you will redefine your connection to the heart and soul of your power
⇾ Where you will forge new ground as a woman of impact and influence

In this program, we walk you through the process. Together we’ll identify and un-learn messages and old paradigms that may be holding you back. You’ll learn how to tap the well of your own personal mission, vision, values, find new pathways that hold inspiration, joy and meaning. You’ll come away empowered, clearer and with a new set of competencies and tools, including your own personal, bespoke wheel of impact to guide you forward into your next chapter.
