Helping Women leaders master their inner and outer game
CorporateDNA’s Women in Leadership programmes shape organizational ambition to empower and advance women executives as a source of competitive advantage through well-crafted development journeys.
Our programmes result in clear winning proof points. More than 70% of candidates have been promoted up the pipeline from Senior Manager to Director positions, and more than 80% of candidates from Director to C-suite positions.
Our grasp of the organizational’s context, prevailing culture/mindsets, and “pipeline issues” give us the expertise and insight to push through infrastructural and interpersonal challenges in the leadership pipeline, such as: unconscious biases, scarcity of role models, and a peer group that shrinks the more senior they become.
The best programme I have attended in a professional context. The specific focus on women AND business accelerated my leadership effectiveness. Coaches were incredible. An intense but rewarding programme.

Now I stand on big stages and receive amazing feedback, and I have this programme to thank for it.

CorporateDNA offers gender inclusive programmes to women in leadership at different phases of their career line across 4 key life stages – late 20s, mid 30s, 40s, 50s and beyond, where we observe several patterns play out, including:
Overcoming the ‘legitimacy’ gap, where women are not only held to male versions of expressed leadership but face a double standard when doing so. (e.g., being passionate is perceived as ‘emotional,’ being determined is perceived as ‘feisty.’)
‘Playing big vs playing small’, where the arc of distortion and unconscious gender biases result in humility being perceived as timidity.
Breaking out of perfectionism and low risk-taking through the 80/20 rule, converging on self-belief and faster decision-making.
Pairing delegates with senior mentors outside of their function and/or industry for productive, lasting and interdependent partnerships to learn from and to teach.
Owning your leadership style by overcoming male models of power and leadership behaviours that do not serve gender-equitable organisations and executives in the present context.
Overcoming Imposter Syndrome to achieve success in their career.

What senior women executives say about us:
A huge thank you for all of your support across the ALIO programme over the last year. This programme came at just the right time, and it was certainly the most useful training event that I have ever attended. I learned so many tools that I use in my day-to-day role now.
Also, a special thank you for your excellent 1-1 coaching session because the content and support was excellent. The whole programme has culminated in a shift in my mindset of what I am capable of and has increased my self-confidence.
