the Woman Leader (tWL)

It’s tough. We know.

Being a woman leader in a predominantly man’s world is challenging. How do you manage your various identities – in your job, your family, your community and your life?

There is more to prove and more to lose.

While there are more women moving in an upward trajectory, taking up more senior positions, and being elevated into leadership roles, there is so much more that can be done.

the Woman Leader (tWL) ®

tWL ® is a 3-day program followed by a 6-month learning journey. This initiative

aims to create a sustainable community of mentors and mid-career women who will inspire and challenge each other to evolve into purposeful leaders.

With new perspectives and mindsets gained, skills and tools acquired, and behaviors recalibrated, each participant will be challenged to form her unique identity as a woman leader and identify a unique leadership purpose. This is how she can bridge the gap between her intentions and the impact she can have on her workplace, family, community and more.

tWL ® uses CCL’s time-tested design motif: Prepare-Engage-Apply. P-E-A maximizes the transfer of learning from classroom to workplace. Participants are initiated to the program during the Prepare phase. They are immersed in a variety of demanding activities during the Engage phase. This is followed by six months of intimate small-group interactions in the Apply phase. tWL ® program introduces a process and learning journey to shift mindsets and build skillsets that will energize and embolden women.


Pre-program assessments and interviews are the heart of a tWL ® experience.

  • Comprehensive, holistic self and multi-rater assessments for self-clarity – assessments help each participant to develop her identity as a woman and leader

  • Insight interviews with women of impact, inspirational role-models, their boss and/or key stakeholders – these interviews help participants to become drivers of change in their organizations and community


For three days, participants are immersed in their personal data, experiential activities, video-taped communication exercises, values clari cation, exposure to role-models and dialogue sessions. Led by highly quali ed faculty, tWL ® is a safe – but challenging – environment for learning, practice, re ection and goal setting.

The 3-days include:

  • A two-hour personal session with a certi ed CCL coach to clarify thinking and plan next steps.

  • Deeper knowledge, insights and an action plan for building professional and personal networks

  • Gift for Paying it Forward: tool-kit for Creating Mentoring Circles


The tWL classroom experience is the launch-point for six months of interactions within intimate Mentoring Circles and peer groups -- empowering women to sustain their personal development as leaders. Ongoing support will include a mix of self-selected activities such as:

  • Interactive webinars with CCL faculty and senior women leaders from industry followed by small-group dialogue and coaching

  • Participation in Mentoring Circles and peer groups that o er guidance on select challenges that women face during their career and leadership journey
