Program Outline

Orientation and Get to know

Our first session will include orientation of what to expect, creating our rules of engagement, and connecting with other amazing individuals in the program. We will answer any questions you have regarding the format, self guided study, peer to peer support, one on one coaching, etc.

Module 1: Communicating with Confidence

Participants will learn how to be heard the first time you say something, to get to your point in a succinct manner while ensuring your message is very clear. You will also learn about poise and authenticity so that your message is reflective of who you are at the core. And you remove any ambiguity in your message.

Module 2: Listening to Understand while empowering others.

In this module, you will gain the insight of the different listening styles, how it shows up in you and those you interact with but also what the impact of your style has. Ever wonder why you walk away more confused or frustrated than when you started the conversation. We will work through how to advance conversations with others no matter the situation you are in.

Module 3: Getting Curious – The power of asking questions

This is one of my most favorite modules as this is where we learn the magic of getting curious. How to really enhance your communication skills by asking the right questions. There is a science to this, and practice is key. When you learn to ask powerful questions, you change the level of conversations no matter what situation you are in.

Module 4: Case studies and Live Q&A

Experience and learn the art of asking questions as you immerse yourself into case studies of real-world scenarios. You will practice and build your leadership muscles while purposefully expanding on your listening skills and deepening the level of conversations that you engage in. Does not matter who you are speaking to as you will gain the confidence and skills required

Module 5: How to take difficult conversations and turn them into opportunities. Part 1

In this module, you will learn to identify the emotions that stifle your voice especially when we think we must have a confrontation with someone. No one likes difficult discussions but what if I share with you there is a way to reframe those tough discussions into an opportunity not only for you but for the other person? We will learn to use words that shift us from fear to empowering.

Module 6: How to have difficult conversations and turn them into opportunities. Part 2

In part 2 of having difficult conversations, we will continue to learn how to navigate a difficult conversation, how to set the stage for the discussion and practice shifting from difficult conversations into opportunities. Understanding the intention and impact and working through the layers will enable you to make that shift into a more expansive discovery.

Module 7: How we sabotage our message with our body language.

Are you guilty of sabotaging your message by the nonverbal cues you send out to the world? Learn about the silent signals that reveal what is really going on, how to influence, and the advantages of being in alignment in all aspects of your communication. Plus, tips and techniques to practice enhancing your nonverbal skills.

Module 8: Case Studies and Live Q&A

Experience case studies that immerse you into real world examples of how to navigate those difficult conversations and turn them into opportunities. You will test the skills you have acquired over the 8 weeks to ensure that you have the confidence to communicate in a way that is authentic to you.

Thank you for all your support and patience during last year Women in Leadership program! During my professional life I have participated in many workshops, seminars, I have been mentored and I have mentored myself. Your sessions were informative, engaging, eye opening, with applicable and clear structured content. During the program I got to know fabulous colleague ladies , and although we work in the same floor and same company we didn't have a chance to know each other. Genuinely I can say that your program was one of the best I have attended.

I feel truly blessed to have had the opportunity to take the Women in Leadership course with Vicki. Throughout the course, we learned about Conversational Intelligence, Non-verbal communication, our own communication and reaction styles (ELI), and much much more. The group gave us a sense of community, exposure to other powerful woman outside of the org, and allowed us to meet and network with other women in different departments within the org. I would definitely be part of this course again if the opportunity arises as I looked forward to it every month. Thank you Vicki for being a great mentor, teacher, and friend.

This online platform for women leaders is professional, helpful and a great community. It provides an excellent forum to learn, grow and share.  Thanks for launching this.  It is a pleasure to hear Vicki and Robyn share their knowledge and feedback on women in leadership.  It is also a delight to meet other women leaders in a virtual setting.


Maggie Large

Account Management at Redstone Agency

The Women in Leadership program was an extremely valuable opportunity and empowered me to develop meaningful connections with a diverse group of women. I learned essential skills that will allow me to continue to build my professional and personal networks. This program gave me access to interactive lessons, live Q&As, and an online membership community and resources. The most valuable aspect of this program was the opportunity to connect with and learn from not only the experienced and knowledgeable coaches, but also the other women participating in the program. Being a part of this community of women, both online and through the coaching sessions, has been an empowering and worthwhile experience and I’d highly recommend it to all women looking for mentorship and networking opportunities. Thank you Vicki and Robyn for making this program such a success!

With WILempower, Vicki and Robyn have created a community and program where we can be real, reflect on how we show up as professionals and learn how to be our authentic selves while still striving to be our best selves. It's great to be in a group of professional women who aren't shy about going after what matters but are also willing to share the bumps along the way. Thanks to Vicki and Robyn for creating a vibrant community of professional women!

Angela Podolsky

I joined the WIL Empowered program for support in better understanding my “blinds spots” and to help me be more self aware so that I could excel my career growth. This program covers a great range of topics that I fined EXTREMELY important for anyone that wants to do well in their career, no matter if they are a business owner or in a corporate environment, as I believe we need to be well rounded in our skills and not just in one skill. This program touches on business, networking, mindset, belief systems and lot more which is the beauty of it! As well, it’s lead by very professional and knowledgeable women that truly care about your success and make sure to answer all your questions to insure you get the best results possible from this journey. I would definitely recommend this program to anyone who wants to accelerate their career and to tap into the areas they didn’t even know they needed support with but will discover it as they go.
