We are all faced with life changes and challenges. As women we sometimes are reluctant to ask for support.
This I know — we can’t do it all ourselves,
and women supporting women is a powerful thing.
I know how difficult it can be to manage big life changes that rattle your routines and cause you to question your life. My challenges came in the form of early struggles with being the only woman manger in a chemical company, to personal loss and business downturns. It was enough to make me dig deep and evaluate my life.
But the entire way was one of learning and growth and looking back, it was because I had a desire to change and reached out for the support to make it happen.
It was through these experiences that I realized that I wasn’t the only one. Many women are in transition, wanting more, struggling to find their way in the midst of new circumstances, and not knowing how to powerfully move toward a new fulfilling future.
That’s why I founded the International Center for Women’s Leadership, the ICWL .
Prior to starting my own business, I had a wonderfully successful career — first as a Human Resources (HR) executive with international consumer products, luxury goods, retail, pharmaceutical and financial services companies, and then later with my own HR consulting firm. Combined I have more than 25 years of experience providing HR consulting to companies in the US, UK, Europe, Sweden and China. I worked on acquisition teams, and helped companies expand internationally.
By all accounts, I was successful, but eventually, I wanted something different. I knew it was time for a career shift in this next chapter of my life. That’s when I decided to start the ICWOL. This is my time, and the tools I’ve used to build this business are the same tools that will help you write your next chapter.
My focus on developing women as leaders has become very clear.
When I hear that projections show women won’t be equally represented in leadership until 2085, it spurs me to action! My programs help companies and individuals realize their own leadership potential.
It is your time to stop playing the career game –
it is your time to re-invent it!
My role here is similar to an adventure guide. I’m an explorer and inventor at heart, with an eye (and mind and heart!) for finding and creating quality experiences of growth and development.
I’d love to get you know you! Contact me about how the ICWL can help you, and your organization, recognize and unleash the talents and joy within you.
