About the Program

Boundless Leadership is designed specifically addresses the needs and questions of current and emerging women leaders. Through our unique and creative approach our team will work with you to answer this question: How can I further realize my leadership potential to benefit my a mbitions AND to better serve my organization?

The Boundless Leadership Program is offered in a virtual learning format of two modules over the course of five months.

Each session will have a specific focus, but the program is holistic and integrated so that each session builds on the next. We will work together to practice new skills and we’ll open up time for special guests who can directly address the “real life” experiences related to each topic.

The program includes a state of the art psychometric -the Hermann Brain Dominance Instrument (HBDI®) -a powerful psychometric assessment that illuminates the degree to which we tend to resort to familiar and habitual thinking patterns over a more whole-brain, holistic approach.
