Women In Senior Leadership Mastermind Group


Main Content

Get support, develop relationships and have the types of conversations you can't have at work.

Join a group of hard-working, achievement-oriented female leaders

Nancy Lewis and Aleta Norris, co-founders of Living As A Leader, have been supporting and coaching women in leadership for over 20 years. They have heard from countless women in leadership who grapple with the challenges of being one of the few, or only, females on the senior leadership team.

We often hear things like

I'm one of the only women in a male-dominated industry.

I don't play golf or hunt. Is this hindering my advancement?

There's no one to go to for support where I work.

Nancy and Aleta have decided to take action and provide a solution for what women have been asking for. The Women in Senior Leadership Mastermind Group, facilitated by Nancy and Aleta, will meet monthly at the Living As A Leader office in Brookfield, Wisconsin.

  What is a Mastermind?

A mastermind group is a group of like-minded individuals who come together to offer and receive expertise from each other. Masterminds rely on the collective experience, knowledge, expertise, and wisdom of the group for problem solving and accountability for forward progress. Members have similar experience levels, ambitions for success, and a commitment to growth.

  Why are we forming a Mastermind Group specifically for Women In Senior Leadership?

We have consistently had women express interest in receiving support for challenges they face, often influenced by having minority representation at the senior-most level of leadership within their industry or within their company.

  Who is this for?

Women in the Greater Milwaukee area who are in a CEO role, president role, or VP role (reporting directly to the CEO or president).

The purpose of this group is to provide women in senior levels of leadership a collaborative place to discuss challenges, solve problems, advance goals, foster accountability and feel supported by others facing the same kinds of challenges. The talent of the facilitator is a key component in the success of the group.  Nancy Lewis and Aleta Norris, co-founders of Living As A Leader, will be the facilitators of the group.
