Break the Glass Ceiling! Develop Essential Skills to Advance Your Career

A virtual group coaching program for women who want to recognize the value of their natural strengths, be seen as the leader they are, and develop essential skills to get ahead in their career.


Why now?

  • Because you’re tired of being overlooked for promotions and feeling that your opinion doesn’t count
  • Because you are skilled and capable yet somehow you can’t see yourself as the leader you are
  • Because you have great ideas and you want to be able to speak up and be heard
  • Because you are motivated and ambitious and you deserve to feel great about yourself and get ahead in your career!

What’s in it for you?

In the Break the Glass Ceiling program, you’ll be invited to focus on the positive changes you want to create in your career and what (or who) is inspiring you right now.  You’ll learn how to optimize your conversation skills to develop a rich network of connections that can help you advance in your career in a way that feels authentic and celebrates your natural strengths.

With the support of your coach and the other women in the group, you’ll practice taking credit for your work and speaking up in your workplace, learning from each experience to help you get better every time.  You’ll learn how to position yourself as the leader you are, and find out what you need to know in order to negotiate your way to a raise and/or promotion.

Just as importantly, you’ll discover the limiting beliefs that may be holding you back from being seen as the leader you are, and feeling proud of yourself and your progress every day.

Here’s what you’ll get:

This six month virtual group coaching program includes:

  • 1.5 hour intake session (1:1)
  • Monthly group calls
  • Monthly 1:1 coaching session with me
  • Self-discovery exercises to help you assess your own strengths, values and capacity to influence positive change
  • Practical activities to support your career advancement
  • Accountability partners
  • Access to a secure online discussion forum with additional resources
  • A non-judgmental environment in which to practice and play with new ideas and behaviours, and be a more powerful presence
  • Recognition of what makes you unique and valuable through self-assessment & reflection
  • Access to applicable research on gender imbalances and what works to counteract them
  • Focus on creating new possibilities in your career
  • Opportunity to take time for yourself and explore your own wants/needs

This coaching program can help you break your own glass ceilings so that you are more confident, see yourself as the leader you are, feel great about yourself and your capacity to influence others, and get ahead in your career!

Over these past few months of being part of Break The Glass Ceiling, I’ve definitely felt more confident, more capable, more supported, more open and more positive about my work and my abilities. For starters, just the fact that I’m part of a leadership group and have been regularly checking in with myself, you and the group has empowered me. Through observing myself on the group calls, I’ve realized that I can actually be excited about participating and contributing to a discussion, and that’s helped me become more confident in meetings. You also helped me to identify some key personal goals to work towards – greater self-compassion and self-trust. This has provided me with a wonderful opportunity for reflection, and through that a sense of calmness, steadiness and well-being.

I have become more confident, I think before I speak and about ways to raise the level of confidence people have in me.  I can differentiate better what I can change and what I cannot, and I am willing to do the work to make the changes I can.  I am less quick to judge and I am learning to take myself out of the politics, especially the politics I can’t change.  And I am happier.

I have gained more confidence in my negotiating for whatever it is I need. This has been a huge boost for my self esteem. I don’t feel so hesitant asking for what I want. In addition, I am slowly becoming more confident in taking credit for my work. Overall the main gain in all of this is feeling so much more empowered.
