About the Program

Let’s be real: whether we like it or not, women in power face unique and heightened challenges when it comes to being effective and empowered leaders—from overt bias to inner anxieties about impostor syndrome.

The Elevate Leaderlab, limited to 20 participants, cultivates powerful women aspiring to a greater level of influence and to more senior levels of leadership.

Our experts bring together the power of experience, connection, and personalization to help you understand your personal power and use it to positively impact and influence up, down, and across the organization.

Who gets the most out of Leaderlab?

Those unafraid of ruthless personal accountability.

The Leaderlab programs are for women leaders who know they have a particular struggle or challenge holding them back from being the best leader they can be. Participants recognize that—above all—mastering behaviors, beliefs, and motivations is key to shaping one’s career.

To ensure each participant has the motivation, openness, and drive for the Leaderlab, admission is by application only. Applicants will be interviewed in person or by phone. Prior completion of a coaching or leadership development program is strongly recommended.

We work to ensure that participants represent diverse racial, ethnic and business backgrounds in order to enrich the experience for all.

ELEVATE COMPONENTS

Cohort Connection

Participants will create meaningful, lasting relationships with strong female leaders from all business backgrounds. We keep our cohorts small to foster deep, genuine interactions and risk-taking that builds a lifelong network of peers.

Personalized Journey

Power² Leaderlab is all about the individual. Our real-time feedback and experiential learning methods cater to your individual leadership needs.

The Power Project

The program centerpiece, a “Power Project” is an action learning project composed of each individual’s personal vision for leadership and what they want to create through their position of power. Together we’ll identify your Power Project and design a roadmap for accomplishing it.

Ongoing One-on-One Coaching

The work doesn’t end when a session does. Our executive coaches and seasoned facilitators will connect with each member of the cohort between modules to make sure they get the most out of the Leaderlab.

Why Women?

As a woman leader, you recognize that within every interaction is a potential encounter with bias and expectations related to your gender, and for women of color, to your race and ethnicity as well. Thus, every day presents a challenge for you to stay connected to your clarity, best thinking, and purpose. It becomes all too easy to lose contact with your personal power.

Getting grounded in your leadership point of view and purpose is the most direct path to your personal power. It’s also bottom-line the most important thing you can own and control as a leader. The Leaderlab will super-charge your sense of personal power, enabling you to sit confidently in who you are and what you’re about, and to focus on the world you want to create.

Life Changing

“The Power² Leaderlab has been life-changing, both personally and professionally. I find myself relying
on the program’s tools to manage
the daily stress of my organization.”

The Results I Wanted

"I rotated out of (my business) since I completed the training and can say it was instrumental in a) negotiating the position I wanted in the way I wanted, b) pay and grade level raise and c) most importantly…I felt empowered and drove the results I wanted."

Best Experience

“The P² Leaderlab was the best lab, workshop, or training experience I’ve had. Lesli and Julie have redefined what it means to be powerful, in a way that resonates with my real world experience.”
