LEADERSHIP EXCELLENCE RIGHT FROM THE START

It's lonely at the top for every leader. Information flows down, not up. Leaders are least likely to receive important feedback. For women lawyers, leadership can be even lonelier. With law firms stalled at only around 18% women partners, there are often few people to whom women leaders feel they can turn - without fear of judgment -- to discuss the labyrinth of challenges they encounter. Without role models and peer support, it's all too easy to feel insecure in a new role as leader. Women lawyers often face challenges to their competence. Frequently, they find themselves overloaded with administrative responsibilities. Too many fail to earn equitable compensation or to get the corner office they deserve. Over time confidence and optimism begin to erode.
LEADERSHIP EXCELLENCE is intended to empower women attorney to effectively face the challenges of leadership and to enable them to realize their potential.
The LEADERSHIP EXCELLENCE group provides women law leaders with a safe and confidential environment to set and achieve their leadership goals and to receive leadership coaching and peer mentoring. Group members offer support, non-judgmental accountability, role-modeling, and a wide range of ideas, perspectives and experience.
Since October 2004, the LEADERSHIP EXCELLENCE Coaching Group has enabled many women lawyers to accomplish their leadership goals and "graduate" while welcoming new participants. Throughout, the group has focused on the needs of women attorneys ready to build a highly productive team and attain significant influence in the workplace.
Right now, the group - which is limited to eight (8) participants - has the rare opportunity to welcome two (3) new members.
COMMENTS FROM PARTICIPANTS
"This group is so important to me. I look forward to the calls. Listening to the others [women on the call] makes me realize that I have experienced gender bias. I'm glad that I can identify it now - not to feel like a victim but to determine a constructive strategy for dealing with it."
"I've learned to trust myself and to no longer fear putting myself out there. It's very important to me to be an authentic leader and now I feel like I am one."

BENEFITS OF A VIRTUAL COACHING GROUP
A virtual group is simply a conference call with attorneys from many different locations participating on the call. Many women attorneys don't realize how many others share their feelings and experiences. Joining a virtual coaching group is an opportunity to see that you're in excellent company - and you'll learn from the trials, successes, and support of other group participants.
This is the most convenient, time-efficient way to develop your leadership skills and confidence as well as to connect with women attorneys throughout the country.
LEADERSHIP EXCELLENCE is facilitated by Ellen Ostrow, Ph.D., CMC, founder principal of Lawyers Life Coach, LLC. You can read Ellen's bio by clicking here.
There will be occasional bonus calls for no additional fee.
The group is limited to eight members. There is room to accept ONLY THREE (3) new participants.
