My colleague Lisa Mink and I launched Nova Leadership Immersion this year – a unique leadership development retreat for executive women. “Retreat” is an intentional component: we give women the tools and the time to reflect on their unique leadership brand, and in an environment that is not a typical on-campus conference room.
Too many women believe that their stellar performance should speak for itself; that hard work and driving results will bring the appropriate rewards. Not so.
Many executives and high potential employees believe that they have to shine solely on their own, or that to show vulnerability in the workplace is a sign of weakness. Not so.
Many up-and-comers believe that in order to excel at the corporate level, and to really get ahead, they have to fit a certain model of what good leadership looks like. They have to leave pieces of their personality at the door when it’s time to assume the mantle of leadership. Not so.
In the three day Nova experience, we explore and explode leadership myths. We create community and talk candidly about what success means – on a personal and a professional level. We give women the tools to create their ideal professional world, and to leverage their unique leadership brand.
Because this combination of community, skill building, candor and care does not exist. Because attention and intention matter. Because this is what Lisa and I wish we had exposure to as we were coming up the corporate ladder. Because we all need a network of amazing and talented peers.
