INVEST IN WOMEN TO CARRY YOUR ORGANIZATION FORWARD
Drive Your Organization Forward With Female Leaders Who Contribute to Long-Term Success
Women face unique challenges and demands as career professionals. PRADCO, in partnership with The Employers’ Association, is bringing this group development program to the Toledo area to help women master these challenges. This research-based program is ideal for those seeking to proactively manage their careers or advance to higher-level leadership positions.
We help women gain insight into their leadership style, network with other high-achieving women in business, and create strategies to deal with the behaviors and perceptions women face as they advance in their careers.
The Striving for Excellence: Women in Leadership Program consists of three sessions, and leverages research data and individual assessment results to help women reach their potential. Three group sessions are supplemented with one individual coaching session. One-on-one coaching allows participants to discuss their own unique challenges and aspirations, and to build a personalized development plan.
The goal is to further develop capabilities in female leaders through a process of learning and personal discovery that will help them make stronger contributions within their careers and the organizations they serve.
