Re-ignite your Ambition January 2019 Non-profit application 

Do you work in the non-profit sector? 

Do you want to play bigger in your career?

Re-ignite your Ambition: For women who want to recognize their ambition and strive for more.

In this 8 week online program we will:

  • Unpack what drives our ambition and find ways to fuel it
  • Explore what holds us back
  • Develop strategies to overcome these barriers
  • Create a network of women that will last beyond the length of this course

One woman from the non-profit sector can participate for FREE

Gender diversity is an issue in all industries, including the non-profit sector, men rise to leadership at a faster rate than women and men make more money than women. The thing is, over the past year, many women from this sector have reached out to me, but there is barrier. Non-profit sector salaries are typically lower than their for profit counterparts. Non-profit organizations typically invest less in professional development. The cost of professional coaching is out of reach for most women in this sector. 

I have decided to dedicate one spot in the January cohort of my Re-ignite your Ambition group coaching program to a woman from the non-profit sector that is 100% FREE. This is a $1,497 value.  This opportunity is open to anyone in North America as the coaching takes place via online video conference. I’m excited about this opportunity to integrate women from the business world and the non-profit sector. I’m excited about the learning that will happen. I’m excited about the relationships that will form. This is my way of giving back. This is my way of integrating social change into my business.  


There is an opportunity for women to step up and close the gender gap

Diversity and gender equality is important and we’ve got a lot of work to do. In North America, women and men are almost equally represented in the workforce, but at all levels of leadership, there are significantly more men than women (World Economic Forum 2017 Gender Gap Report). Everybody seems to be talking about this but when it comes down to doing something about it it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the complexity. What should we do first? Who is supposed to take this on? Can I have an impact? Talking about the gender leadership gap is good, but doing something about it is even better. That’s why I designed this program. I want every woman to be able to recognize her ambition and have the confidence to do something about it. To have a fulfilling career and step into leadership if that’s what she wants.  

The winter application period is now closed.

Course begins January 21, 2019

Week 1 Ambition:

Together we will unpack what drives your ambition. You will start to understand that what you are striving for might be different from other people. You will set goals and together we will make sure that they are aligned with what is important to you so that you are fueling your ambition.

Week 2: Getting out of the grind

The grind is that feeling of never ending to do lists, where there is no time to do anything else, let alone strive for more professionally. Together we’ll explore what keeps you in the grind and you will develop strategies to get out of the grind. We will start to identify opportunities so you are ready to take action when they present themselves.

Week 3: Self Doubt and the inner critic

That voice in your head that says you aren’t ready, you need more experience, your idea’s not good enough. If we listened to our inner critic ideas would not be shared, we wouldn’t take risks and we wouldn’t move forward.  Together we’ll start to unpack this complicated topic. You will start to notice how self doubt and your inner critic holds you back. You will design strategies to overcome this so you can take on opportunities with confidence.

Week 4: Self-care and self compassion

Did you know that taking care of yourself has been proven to increase productivity and happiness at work and at home? Together we will unpack the benefits of mindfulness, eating properly and taking time for yourself. You will develop strategies to reduce feelings of being overwhelmed, to be more present and thrive at work, home and play.

Week 5: Influence

We will learn the difference between mentorship and sponsorship. We will start to unpack the idea of politics and you will identify advocates inside and outside of your organization. You will design strategies to leverage your influence to get results to build your career and benefit your organization. After this module you will realize that you are more influential than you think.

Week 6: Networking and leveraging relationships 

We will develop practical strategies for networking within your organization and outside of your organization. We will explore the differences between networking with men and networking with women. You will design a plan to leverage relationships so that they can move your career and your organization forward.

Week 7: Understanding the evidence with guest expert Dr. Alyson Byrne

Gender equality is a hot topic these days, and there is a lot of information and advice out there. This week, we are going to focus on what the evidence says. We are going to be looking at academic studies and uncovering insights that you can apply to your career and your organization. Dr. Byrne is a professor at Memorial University of Newfoundland who specializes in women and leadership. Her research has been published in The Leadership Quarterly and Harvard Business Review. 

Week 8: Acknowledging progress and celebrating accomplishments

Did you know that acknowledging your current success sets you up for even more success? The program ends with a recap and celebration of what we’ve learned and what each participant has accomplished. You will develop strategies to continue the momentum that you’ve built during this program.

This program is a good fit if you:   

  • Want to strive for more in your career
  • Are ready to stop playing small
  • Are looking for more fulfillment 
  • Are willing to invest in yourself

I just wanted to say thank you. The timing of this coaching was perfect. I had the opportunity to step up and fill in for a facilitator at an important event.  I’ll admit that my nerves were building throughout the day, and I had a moment of feeling like it would just be easier to NOT do it. But then I thought of you, and our coaching. It’s time to get uncomfortable. So, I did it and it was scary but also, it was wonderful and I’m so, so glad I did. And just like you said, it opens doors and I have another opportunity to step up next week. Thank you. I really enjoy our coaching sessions and they are pushing me to grow.

I attended one of Andrea’s sessions at a conference. Her room was filled to the brim with attendees standing and sitting on the floor. She left me with some great tips and some self reflection that I’m still thinking about. Her topic had a great impact!
