  • Resonate – Develop meaningful and mutually supportive connections with other women leaders.
  • Elevate – Rise above to higher consciousness levels of thinking and being.

By participating in Boldly Rising, you take a proactive step and play the lead role in determining your own leadership development path and way forward.

Taking a holistic approach based on positive psychology, neuroscience and long-standing as well as the latest research on specific challenges and opportunities facing women leaders today, Boldy Rising will equip you with deeper self-awareness, new skills, increased courage and actionable strategies to overcome obstacles that are limiting you to surviving instead of thriving in your leadership role.
