Developing Courageous Women Leaders

Challenge

Microsoft’s female employees need to become stronger leaders, increase executive presence, become more confident, take more risks, prepare for leadership advancement.

Solution

Participation in the three-day Women. Courage. Leadership. Retreat. Many of Microsoft's women have achieved positive and sustainable results from attendance at the Retreat, (and subsequent follow up). As a result, this retreat has been rolled out to several orgs, and is under consideration to become an integral part of their women's initiative, org-wide.

Two women in my group recently attended Nancy Solomon’s women. courage. leadership. Retreat and the results I saw were impact-full and immediate. Increased confidence and self-awareness has translated into stronger performance from both. Not only are they realizing their full potential but the organization is getting so much more value from these women who have stepped up to lead in their respective jobs.

I cannot say enough about the impact this has had on these women’s lives both personally and professionally but it is visible everyday in the way they carry themselves and their interactions with me and the rest of the team. The retreat had a huge and lasting impact.
