Women Leaders Program


Program Overview

Our proprietary research, amassed over twenty years of our work with both male and female leaders, indicates that women are more “performance avoidant” than men, meaning that they may shy away from challenges and stretch assignments without realizing it. Moreover, they often have exceptional relationships skills, but miss opportunities to apply those skills to influence others. Our data also shows that women often have lower self-confidence than warranted by competency.


Our vision is to help women leaders advance in their organizations, grow in their leadership, and gain skills to help them overcome some of the barriers identified above.


TLG and Transformational Leadership are offering a two-day open enrollment workshop (April 22 and 23, 2014 in Atlanta, GA) that helps high potential women leaders gain clarity and confidence in their leadership style and build the skills and agency needed to achieve the high impact they want to make in their organizations.

Testimonials from Prior Workshops

“Over the course of my career, I have attended many development workshops. Having tasted ‘improvement’ methods in the past I was expecting more of the same. However, I was pleasantly surprised by Henna’s unique approach which was facilitated with a small group of women in such an intimate and meaningful way. This ‘check-in’ process, if anything, made me reevaluate the direction of my intentions. It was time well spent, and I developed new connections with an amazing group of women outside my industry.”
