The How Women Rise Leadership Program is based on the international bestseller, How Women Rise, written by Sally Helgesen, the world’s premier expert on women’s leadership and legendary executive coach Marshall Goldsmith. The book examines the behaviors most likely to get in the way of successful women as they seek to move to a higher level. It became a top-seller in its field within a week of publication. Rights have been sold in 17 countries and it is currently #17 on Kindle’s list of best career books. Now, How Women Rise is available as an online development program to help women rise in organizations worldwide.


As more women than men graduate from college yet men continue to outnumber women in leadership roles, there is a middle swath of women who need transitional support. In addition, organizations must retain top female talent if they want to compete. Sally Helgesen’s framework for helping women to act within the realm of their control allows them to reflect on their own experience and understand how behaviors that ensured success earlier in their careers may no longer serve their purposes as they rise. As importantly, the framework provides the tools for developing new habits to propel women forward in their careers.

Designed for women, men and organizations alike, the HWR Leadership Program allows participants to benefit from a highly interactive experience whose main takeaway is a practical and ongoing game plan to help women rise.
