The key objective is to provide intensive coaching for emerging female leaders in the industry to grow in their careers.
The WIBF Career Coaching Program is a unique six-month intensive career-coaching program. The program has been designed specifically for emerging female leaders in banking and finance, who've achieved one or two promotions and are looking to grow into an executive leadership role. Highlighting the differences between a mentor and a coach, this program is designed with very practical components that can be tracked over the course of the program, with coaching that is tailored to your individual needs and career trajectory.
The program runs over six months and includes one group workshop and three individual executive coaching sessions. The attendees work one-on-one with a highly qualified executive coach, specifically with the view of strategic career advancement.
Key topics covered in the coaching sessions include:
- How to articulate career goals in a compelling way
- Building a strategic career advancement plan
- Mapping your goals, and identifying your next career step
- Reviewing your career trajectory: Are you moving fast enough?
- A detailed assessment of where you are today, vs. where you want to be over the next 5-10 years
