Hey, you: woman with vision, grit, and courage.

 

You're making things happen, ready to advance, and looking for the just right training to help you get there. Next Level is it.

Join us in a two-day training focused on leveling up your leadership platform: branding, core values, professional storytelling, public speaking, and style. You'll learn new skills and develop actionable strategies, all delivered by four expert trainers who understand the unique challenges and opportunities of being a woman in leadership. This small-group training takes place in an intimate setting, bringing together women focused on growth and influence. Because after all, it's hard enough to conquer the world—why do it alone?

 

Next Level Women Leaders delivers intense training with retreat-style details. During day one, we focus on internal clarity and challenge attendees with focused introspection. On day two, we use that clarity to develop and refine external skills.

session details

Day 1

Breakfast + check in: Connect with other dynamic women leaders while enjoying a generous continental breakfast and refreshments.

Laying the foundation + connecting with your peers: We’ll spend the first hour getting to know you as a leader, introducing you to the program and team, and setting the stage for a challenging and energy-filled two days.

Leadership values + vision: We lead and influence most effectively when we show up with authenticity. To do this, we must know what we stand for and where we're heading. Through a creative, introspective process, you’ll identify core values—the guiding beliefs and principles that matter most to you. Then, using these values as anchors, you’ll build a vision for your leadership to define how you will lead in the future.

Catered lunch: Enjoy a delicious lunch, where you’ll have unstructured time to connect with others or escape for some quiet time to reflect.

Defining your core message + writing your professional story: This session is a practical training on writing a professional story (also known as a bio). We’ll break apart the structure of a great professional story, look at LinkedIn examples across industries, and begin crafting a story that communicates your leadership values and vision. As a follow-up to this session, you’ll write a professional story that can be used across online platforms, including your company website and LinkedIn.

Leading with presence: Drawing on work in psychology, neuroscience, and theater, this session gives you tools to shed negative thought patterns that can inhibit professional progress, and propels you toward a leader's mindset. A series of exercises help you integrate essential elements of presence—body language, voice, and use of space—to express that mindset externally.

Day 2

Breakfast: Reenergize with breakfast refreshments while you catch up with newfound friends and colleagues.

Managing your online leadership brand: We are not separate and distinct from our online selves. Instead, our leadership extends online, and we have to be active managers of our reputations and influence. Through a targeted digital tour of effective platforms, including LinkedIn and company websites, this session uncovers the principles of an effective leadership brand. You’ll discover how to align with your company’s brand while also making your mark as a leader.

Speaking essentials for leaders: Public speaking—in meetings and more formal presentations—is a major part of every leader’s job, yet it can be a challenge. This session makes public speaking easy with a unique, step-by-step approach to messaging and delivery. You’ll come away with impactful, authentic presentation techniques that align with your values and vision, a fresh new talk you develop and deliver during the session, and thoughtful feedback on your content and speaking style.

Catered lunch: Enjoy another delicious lunch. You’ll have time to connect with others or escape for some quiet time to reflect.

Redefining the power wardrobe: Women leaders have a complex task when it comes to putting together a professional wardrobe. Style lets you show up as your best self; it builds confidence and supports optimal performance. But what does today’s power wardrobe look like, and how do you build one? This session guides you through the essential pieces in any professional closet, how to dress for your body type, and how to elevate any outfit. You’ll come away with the confidence and knowledge to create styles fitted to your body, your personality, and your leadership role.

Reflection + next steps: Circling back to an activity from day one, you’ll have the opportunity to share and commit to your leadership vision with real deadlines and accountability. Together, we’ll celebrate the hard work and growth you’ve engaged in over the past two days.
