Twelve-Month Leadership Development for Women: Technology

Developing Women Leaders in the Technology Industry

Client Case Study

Situation

The Women’s Leadership Alliance (WLA), a non-profit organization dedicated to furthering the personal and professional growth of business and professional women, believes that:

  • Organizations must continually develop and retain leadership talent from new sources.
  • While women have increasingly entered higher levels of leadership over the past fifteen years, leading organizations have made specific efforts to recruit and retain women in key leadership positions.

Approach

  1. In conjunction with the Executive Women’s Alliance, designed and staffed The Leadership Alliance, a year long, multi-organizational learning forum designed to support and accelerate the development of talented women.
  2. The Leadership Alliance focuses on the three elements that make a successful career
    • individual efficacy
    • understanding of the critical success factors within one’s own organization
    • cross-organizational learning with peers and executives.

Results

  • Three levels of learning were blended into a yearlong learning environment augmented with 360° executive assessments and individual coaching.
  • Major global organizations have been sending their top women leaders to the Leadership Alliance program and the numbers of women holding executive positions in their organizations continues to rise.

It was a challenge to find a consultant with an approach to performance improvement that fit our unique culture and style. We were pleasantly surprised to discover LSA’s depth of expertise in the fields of motivation, developmental coaching, performance management, and measurement.

LSA seamlessly integrated those components without our folks feeling like the intervention was forced. They understood what we were trying to accomplish, helped us clarify our objectives, and created a solid, refreshing approach that quickly got us moving and engaged at all levels across the organization.  Overall, I couldn’t be happier that we found a true strategy and implementation partner in LSA.

LSA’s executive coach based his approach on understanding our business circumstances and strategy, as well as our leadership aspirations. The customized coaching covered all aspects of leadership; it was not simply a touchy-feely endeavor. In fact, the focus on clear business outcomes and real life circumstances challenged me to develop my thinking and actions related to leading the business.”

LSA consistently delivers for me and my team.  Recently they demonstrated the criticality for executives to look beyond current ethics topics and focus on applying fundamental values in everything they do to demonstrate true leadership. They successfully delivered in two hours what most leadership development facilitators would spend an entire day trying to communicate.
