This program is designed to empower women leaders with essential skills to navigate the complexities of leadership with grace and effectiveness. A core objective of the program is to teach participants the art of intentional response to challenging situations, enabling thoughtful approaches rather than emotional reactions. This ensures your actions align with your leadership goals and bring others along toward win-win solutions. The program also places great emphasis on developing the ability to quickly recover from emotional reactions - rather than rehash or ruminate on them - fostering mental well-being and preserving focus on one's mission.

Sharon Melnick, PhD is the premier expert on being in your power as a leader, and an authority on women's leadership, resilience, and power. She's been selected as a Marshall Goldsmith Top 100 Executive Coach, and voted a Top Leadership Voice by LeadersHum.

Her methods are informed by 10 years of research at Harvard Medical School, and field tested by 40,000 coaching/training participants at over 75 Fortune 500 and fast-growing companies. A dynamic speaker, her presentations have created buzz at conferences worldwide (and also at the White House, West Point, and the United Nations).
