key elements of our woc programs

Assessment and Goal Setting – Participants solicit feedback and measure progress against one key leadership goal. Self-awareness is enhanced through assessments such as DiSC ® and strategic thinking.

Skill Development – Virtual training sessions develop these critical areas:

  • Articulating and owning Leadership Brand
  • Enhancing presence and impact
  • Elevating emotional agility
  • Building strategic relationships that lead to advancement
  • Handling microaggressions

Mindset – Participants learn to identify the voice of the inner critic and the inner champion to better manage their thoughts and emotions with a mindfulness-based approach.

Individualized one-on-one executive coaching – A key differentiator of our programs is the one-on-one coaching that participants receive from highly trained, certified executive coaches. This allows them to overcome individual challenges and barriers to success.

Stretch assignments – HNS programs are highly interactive and designed to move participants out of their comfort zones to where the growth happens. We challenge women to try new behaviors and expand their capabilities as a result.

Membership – Peer groups share insights, ideas and inspiration. Members expand self-awareness through peer feedback.

Manager Involvement – Participants’ managers give input on development goal and feedback on progress throughout program. Managers are briefed and enlisted as partners in development process.
