Re-ignite your ambition 
For women who want to recognize their ambition and strive for more. 
The gender gap is going to close in 167 years... 
Why is progress so slow? 
Are you wondering why there are so few women in senior leadership positions? 

Are you tired of waiting around for things to change?

For years, women have been told to step up and close the gender gap. 

In reality, the gender gap is not a women's issue, it's a cultural issue. If we really want things to change we need to do things differently. 
The gender gap in Canada is 25%, in the US it is 22%.  
That means, women make less money and are less likely to obtain a leadership position. 
In 12 years, the gap has closed by 1.8% in Canada and by 2.3% in the US. If progress is not accelerated, it will take 167 years for the gender gap to close. 

Everybody seems to be talking about this, but when it's time to start doing something, everybody gets overwhelmed. What should be done first? Who's job is it to take this on? 

It doesn't matter if I tell her to go after her dreams, or that she can be anything she wants to be when she grows up. The truth is that gender equality in the workplace will not exist in her lifetime. If things don't change, my sons will have more career success than my daughter. 
I know it can feel like an impossible situation and that you cannot possibly have an impact.  
I used to think that if I just leaned in a little more, if I just worked harder, my career would not be held back because of the gender gap.   

Then I realized that the gender gap is actually a cultural issue. The more I searched for a solution, the more I learned that we were taking the wrong approach. It's not up to women to solve this problem. If we truly want to experience equality both genders need to be on board. 

My mission is to engage both men and women to be diversity champions. To take action to close the gender gap. Because gender equality makes the workplace better for everybody. 
Trying to change women, isn't really working. 
The numbers don't lie, putting the onus on women does not get results. 
You don't seem to fit the mold. 
You're just as good as everyone else that you work with, but the same type of people keep getting promoted. You try to be more like them, but it's a lot of work, and you start to lose your confidence. 
playing the politics at work is exhausting.
They say it's all about who you know, but you have no idea how decisions are made and how to get yourself included. You're not the kind of person to suck up to the boss, so you avoid it all together. 
Your hard work isn't getting recognized
You're working late, you're doing your best but no one seems to notice. You're not getting recognized for what you're contributing. You've told your boss and HR that you're ready for the next level, but nothing seems to be moving forward.  
When I first got started, I created a women’s leadership program. 

I got some clients and my business started to take off. I also got some speaking engagements. In one case, I was the moderator of a panel discussion. On this panel, was Dr. Alyson Byrne — she is a professor that studies gender and leadership. Her work has even been published in Harvard Business Review. 

Her role on this panel: To explain what the evidence says about the gender gap in the workplace. Something interesting happened during this panel discussion as Dr. Byrne was talking about the latest evidence. 

I realized that I had it all wrong, my leadership coaching program focused 100% on women wasn’t actually going to change anything, and the numbers proved it. The truth, which I learned on that day is: if we truly want to create equality in the workplace we need to change workplace culture. 

That means that I needed to step up and start educating my clients on how to to get men on board. I needed to show my clients how to leverage their influence to get ahead, how to embrace sponsorship and to use their influence to change workplace culture. 

And, it worked! My clients found sponsors, they got promoted and they got men involved in the conversation in their organizations. 

Sponsorship also worked for me. When I started engaging senior male leaders, things happened faster, I got bigger corporate clients, and they connected me with other potential clients. Embracing the politics instead of avoiding them was a game changer for me. 
i'm andrea janzen, a former corporate marketing manager turned leadership coach and diversity consultant
I’m a pretty ambitious person! 

I started my career climbing the corporate ladder, I got an MBA and when I felt ready for a promotion I went out and got it. Either by asking my current company or going and finding it at another one. 

Fast forward a couple years, marriage, kids and a great opportunity for my husband to relocate for a new job and things changed. 

I wasn't fulfilled and this career that I had spent so much time building was going nowhere. 

I'm frustrated by the gender gap. But.... I see it as an opportunity, for organizations to better leverage their talent, to have diverse teams and to embrace diversity.
I work with people and organizations to get more women into leadership. I help create diversity champions of both genders because gender equality isn't just good for women, it's for good for everyone. 

Andrea has been featured in...
When you look at gender diversity in the workplace as a cultural issue, Women are able to get men on board, and both genders can work towards equality.  
Imagine what it would be like if everyone was a diversity champion? 
what other opportunities can you see? 
unfortunately women have been given the wrong advice for many years. we've been told to work hard and get a mentor. this alone isn't enough to get ahead. 
The truth is, women and men are mentored differently. Women are given advice, and men are given opportunities. When you are given opportunities it's actually called sponsorship. When you embrace this concept you'll have someone in your corner opening doors and creating opportunities for you. 
Most leadership training courses, don't include the subject of politics, sponsorship and leveraging relationships. These are the things that get you ahead, but nobody really talks about them at work. 
When you're able to see the big picture, when you understand the cultural barriers, you are able to be strategic. It's less frustrating and you can develop a plan to move forward. It makes the game so much easier. 
An investment in yourself is an investment in your potential.
Leveraging everything you have to offer will open doors for you professionally. 
You can take ownership of your career 
When know what you have to offer and where you are going, it's easier to make it happen. You can create opportunities and develop a plan to make them happen. 
you can leverage your influence
You already have so much to offer. When you leverage your influence your impact is so much larger because you're able to get others on board. 
you'll become a role model for otherS. 
The best way to encourage other women to be more ambitious is to be more ambitious yourself. 
when you embrace your ambition you are doing your part to make the workplace better for the next generation of women.

This course taught me to reflect on the things that are important to me, and what I really want to get out of my career. Andrea encouraged me to get curious about how my goals and my big picture fit with my organization. I’m stepping out of my comfort zone more often, it’s moving me forward and I’m getting recognized by the organization as an up and coming leader. I would recommend this course to anyone who is looking to play bigger, be a leader and create opportunities for themselves.

Your decision
Are you ready to be more ambitious for yourself and the people around you?
I want you to feel fulfilled, I want you to feel challenged, I want you to move forward, and I want you to have an impact in your organization. I want you to feel ambitious and I want you to love your career. I want you to thrive professionally and I want you to be a role model. I want you to be able to take action and do something that will actually make the workplace better for yourself, the women you work with and the women coming up behind you. 

In order to experience these things, you need to take action. 
Do you have a plan to put yourself out there?

Do you have a plan to create opportunities for yourself?

Do you have a plan to leverage relationships, manage risk, play the politics and ask for what you want? 

I would be honoured to help you figure this out. I would love to connect with you in my coaching program. 

The gender gap is a big and complicated issue. However, you have a decision to make. You can wait around for someone else to figure it out, or you make make the decision to start taking action today. You can learn about the issues and you can start doing something in your organization that will benefit you and the women you work with. 

Yours in Ambition, 


Re-ignite YOUR AMBItion
This is your chance to start creating opportunities for yourself, and stop waiting around for things to change. 
I'm not in a formal leadership role, can I still participate. 
YES! I believe that leadership doesn't have a title or a job description. Everyone has the opportunity to influence others and be a role model. If you are ready to invest in yourself and take action, you can definitely participate. 
I'm already doing a leadership training course, will this be redundant?  
This program is grounded in coaching principles, which means it's all about self-reflection and taking action. This course includes topics that are typically not covered in traditional leadership training, like embracing politics, and finding a sponsor. Past clients have taken my program at the same time as a traditional leadership course and found it complimentary. 
What if I miss the group coaching calls? 

Sometimes last minute things come up and you may have to miss one (or more) of the coaching calls. Work happens and I totally understand! This is why there are two options to choose from each week, if you can't make either, you can book a 1:1 coaching session with me to make it up. for the summer session you get an extra month to book your 1:1 sessions, to accommodate vacation schedules.  
this is your chance to truly re-ignite your ambition and Do your part to close the gender gap.
