Leadership Development for Women
WE Lead is a 10-month leadership program for accomplished women in mid to upper level management positions, business owners, and top leaders looking to develop the leadership skills necessary to achieve groundbreaking results for themselves, their organizations and their communities. Through a combination of professional development and coaching, WE Lead provides women with the leadership tools and strategies necessary to achieve exceptional success.
The WE Lead curriculum is designed to help participants enhance their leadership capabilities by discovering and understanding their strengths and communication styles in order to learn new ways to be effective leaders within their organizations.
- Create a personal strategic plan with clear vision, mission and goals
- Uncover and overcome obstacles to professional and personal growth
- Learn how to get back on track when the unexpected occurs
- Improve and grow leadership skills and executive presence
- Develop relationships with other women creating a powerful community of resources and support
We Lead runs for 10 months beginning with a kickoff reception in September and concluding with a graduation ceremony in June. There is a two-day overnight retreat held at Houston Woods in late September. The rest of the year consists of five full day sessions meeting once a month at various locations throughout the Cincinnati USA Region. Four half day facilitated mastermind group coaching sessions are held at the Chamber during the alternate months. The program also includes two private sessions with a professional coach.
