A transformational six-month one-to-one coaching programme for professional women of colour who want to thrive in their positions of responsibility.
Our approach to coaching is holistic, results-driven, and measurable. But no one size fits all. The beauty of this programme is that our coaching is targeted and bespoke to each individual’s specific needs.
THE COACHING REQUIRED BY FEMALE LEADERS OF COLOUR IS UNIQUE
We hear it all the time; why do you think it necessary to create a programme just for women of colour?
The experience of a female professional in the corporate environment is challenging enough. The situation for a diverse female leader is absolutely unique. Research shows that “BAME women face the double barrier of the gender glass ceiling and racial discrimination.” Having to deal with gender, race, and cultural distinctions, along with microaggressions and implicit biases can take all the focus away from who she is as a leader.
Research also shows that “BAME women are the least likely group to hold executive or non-executive directorships”, whilst at the same time noting that female leaders of colour want to occupy higher levels of responsibility.
Our Evoke programme provides one to one coaching which focuses on building resilience, improving self-awareness as well as communication skills, shifting mindsets, and enhancing overall assertiveness in our clients, so they can overcome the biases that exist, in their own minds, as much as others.
Perhaps none of these focus areas seems right for you, but you know you want coaching support? Speak with us anyway. We have the expertise to develop a plan entirely for you.
We support middle and senior managers to:
• Develop robust and detailed goals and align efforts/strategies to achieve them.
• Enhance leadership competencies, develop authentic leadership styles, and build skills and confident management capability.
• Develop personally, within and outside of the organisational context.
