Leadership Coaching Seminars
In 1989, work began on the groundbreaking study, "Don't Blame the Baby: Why Women Leave Corporations." This study, which led to the creation of Tashjian & Company, was reported in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Economist, Business Week and Time. It found that lack of development or an unequal learning environment caused women to become frustrated and take their careers elsewhere. Supporting this finding was research from the Center for Creative Leadership showing that women often missed out on key developmental assignments that male peers were routinely getting.
To help companies retain and grow women leaders, Tashjian & Company developed two coaching seminars at which managers learn to:
- Build strategic relationships
- Cultivate and learn from mentors
- Build effective teams
- Resolve conflict
- Develop a more effective leadership style
- Understand how others view you
- Deal with organizational politics
- Handle global/cultural situations
Developing Executive Women (DEW) is aimed at high-potential women and consists of three two-day sessions over a nine-month period. Each session offers extensive feedback and coaching and seeks a specific, measurable learning outcome for each participant. The seminar emphasizes the critical component of self-awareness and its relationship to how others view us. Participants learn and apply the concept of self-coaching, including how to identify key learning outcomes and then how to design and execute development plans that get measurable results. Exposure to key research on development, as well as other carefully designed modules, builds significant self-awareness and creates developmental leaps for many. Programs are limited to twelve participants from multiple companies.

EDGE helps participants become more skilled and strategic about building critical social capital, targeting and addressing key emotional competencies and developing an authentic, compelling, inspirational style. Participants complete the 360°Reach Personal Brand Assessment and receive team feedback on their management style and the resulting climate they are creating.
