XAP – XCELERATED ACTION PROGRAM FOR WOMEN:
For High-Potential Women and Managers – To Help Companies Pave the Way for Women to Succeed
With lawsuits, gender pay gaps and lack of board seats dominating the news, it is clear that the old ways of working, aren’t working. Forward-thinking companies are looking for new ways to pave the way for women to succeed at work and to get women and men engaged in the process.
We focus on hard and soft skills (confidence, communication, time management, goal setting, financials, negotiations, etc.) along with action steps for results. There is a graduation retreat and six-month follow up to keep the momentum going. All of this is done with no time away from work and at an accelerated pace, to start seeing results quickly.
