Overhaul your leadership & life!

Overhaul how you Lead & Live

Grow yourself & strengthen your leadership

in this 6-month program

As a women leader, or potential leader, do you find yourself feeling overwhelmed & unsupported?

Do you struggle to find someone who gets what you are going through or somebody to give you real training, guidance or coaching?

As a result, you probably feel exhausted, upset, and lonely, and at times, ready to throw in the towel!

I bet you also feel stretched, unbalanced and find you are on the verge of falling apart, praying somehow there will magically be more hours in a day or energy in your reserves!

If these are true for you, then I am predicting, that you are also struggling with your leadership.

Days blend together as you frantically:

  • try to complete your to-do list,
  • meet with the staff, clients, and contractors
  • always fearful you are going to drop the ball on something big, like forgetting to pick up your kid at daycare!

It’s the daily feeling of being incapable & incompetent that drags you down.

Your lack confidence about your abilities leaves you persistently worrying that those around you question your credibility.

Lying awake at night, you wonder if someone is going to realize soon that you really aren’t cut out for the job.

Invest in your growth and development!

There was a point where I hated my leadership role & my life

I came home most days exhausted, frustrated and feeling totally incompetent as a leader.

I hid the tears at work, but before the end of the day, they would usually escape.

It wasn't pretty :-(

The brunt of my dissatisfaction with my life came out on my kids and in my marriage.

I was fearful I'd never figure it out.

I just wanted to do a good job and live a good life.

Instead, I felt inept, isolated & lonely.

I desperately longed for a different way

Over time, I realized a way of leading & living that allowed me to:

  1. Feel a deep connection to my work,
  2. Experience a sense of achievement and;
  3. Find more balance in my life.

It took time, persistence and a plan.

  • I pursued training that developed me.
  • I soaked up knowledge from recommended books.
  • I reached out and asked for help.
  • I drew wisdom from many mentors.
  • I found coaches that challenged me to be authentically me.
  • I went inside, reflecting, pondering and searching for what awakened my spirit.
  • I became healthier in my body, mind, and soul.

I developed confidence and became recognized as a strong leader by:

1) Investing in my growth and development and

2) By courageously stepping outside of my comfort zone again and again.

I Got Gritty

I didn't know it at the time, but I was developing GRIT.

I was determined to be successful with something I believed in with my whole heart,

AND I did not give up.

GRIT is the determination to:

1) Persistently pursue...

2) something you believe strongly in...

3) over a very long time!

I believe passionately that I can lead strongly as a woman AND have a full life.

I realized that it takes tremendous courage to live that kind of life.

I also learned that, with focused effort, that we can develop that courage in ourselves and that increased courage, leads to increased self-confidence.

This is what holds true for you too....

Women leaders must develop unshakable confidence because honestly, it is not always glamorous.

In fact, it's downright tough some days being a woman in leadership.

BUT... if you really care about what you are doing, you have to figure this out.

It's time for you!

The way to change your leadership & life:

For me, I quickly learned that I needed to do formal training as well as personal growth work.

Through inner reflection, I learned, how important my family was to me,

but also that I wasn't willing to give up my passion for my work to solely focus on family.

I needed to find a way to be strong in my leadership AND find some sense of balance in my life.

The difference came when I learned

  • who I am authentically; my strengths, talents, and values
  • where I was taking my team and myself; a vision
  • why that was all so important to me

Those inner insights gave me intense focus

My desire led me to learn how to work very hard, to get results AND to find enjoyment in life.

"But I just need more time!"

One mistake many of us make is that we think we are just disorganized or run out of time.

Productivity isn't about getting lots done.

Productivity is about getting the right stuff done at the right time.

That ability doesn't come solely from a time management strategy.

It comes from getting clear on what is important, and then staying focused on that!

That takes work, determination, and passion.

Another word for that is Grit!

When you get the right stuff done, at the right time, you will be successful, and you will find balance.

You will be a woman leading with courage & confidence.

Back to you…

My guess is that you want to feel:

  • Balanced
  • Confident & capable
  • Supported & connected

You get there by creating a plan and following it, one step at a time.

But, as I just said, that isn't always easy! It takes GRIT!

Are you willing to put the work in, over time, for what you believe in?

To get to leadership & life you desire, you need a PLAN, and you need the willpower to put that plan into action.

I teach you how to get both the plan and the willpower when you join the Women with Grit Program

When you join Women with Grit, you will create your unique roadmap that will get you from where you are now, to the leader you aspire to be, with the life you desire!

Learn how to be disciplined to stick to your plan, even when the going gets tough.

Because you know it will!

The components of the Women with Grit Program

1-1 Leadership Coaching

Experience 1-1 coaching as I take you along a path to understanding yourself better. Coaching will help to tame the incessant mind chatter that gets in the way of success and happiness

Let coaching

  • Give you a little (or big) push to take action where you are stuck
  • Help you to embrace who you genuinely are
  • Unlock your leadership potential

A Community of Women

Learn and grow with a group of like-minded women. Let's face it, other women are experiencing the same challenges as you.

There is no point in trying to do this alone!

Build a network of women to:

  • Share stories, challenges, and successes
  • Develop a network of peers to lean into.
  • Find support when you need it most.

Your Leadership Circle Profile

You will experience wicked insights from this 360 assessment. If you rarely or never receive performance appraisals or relatively useless reviews, this will be like gold for you.

Relax, though. The results only come back to you and I. The primary purpose of helping you grow. It is not a tool for your organization to hold over your head.

The Leadership Circle Profile™ is the only 360 degree competency assessment that simultaneously provides focused competency feedback while revealing the underlying assumptions that are causing a leader’s pattern of strengths and limitations. The Leadership Circle Profile helps leaders understand the relationship between how they habitually think, how they behave, and, more importantly, how all this impacts their current level of leadership effectiveness. Once this awareness is established, leadership development can proceed. Without it, change rarely happens.

On-Line Learning

You will receive weekly learning modules that will guide your journey.

I share additional resources in various formats from reading to watching suggested Ted Talks will give you access to new information and insights.

In the online modules, worksheets, forms, and activities will help you deepen and apply the learning to you

Grow Your Courage

Confidence starts with courageous.

Courage allows you to step into those uncomfortable places, to deal with challenge and to move through uncertainty.

Confidence comes when you courageously start stepping outside your comfort zone.

In the program, I’ll be here to support you as you step out courageously.

Let me be your guide

Join the Women with Grit program now. In it, you will develop your individualized roadmap that will show you what you need to do and help you discover how to do it.

I am here to help you follow your path.

Kathy Archer

I know that most of us feel like we spend our days chasing fires and solving everyone else’s problems. However, at the end of our days, we feel as though we didn’t get anywhere. As an internationally certified leadership development coach, I give you the inner and outer tools to turn that around, so you can move from surviving — to thriving.

In my work, I coach individuals who want to strengthen their leadership and find balance in life. I love to mentor people as they rediscover their purpose, passion, and persistence for life while dealing with office politics, jerk bosses, and the challenges of family life. In my best-selling book Mastering Confidence: Discover Your Leadership Potential by Awakening Your Inner Guidance System, I show you how to develop your inner confidence so you can have the impact you desire in work and in life.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much personal sharing do I have to do?
Some. Honestly, that's the point of the program. If you want to read a book, go ahead. If you want to apply what you read in the book, you need to look within. The truth is; you share only what you are comfortable sharing and nothing more. I am not here to shame you or force you to expose yourself. Quite the opposite! This program encourages you to embrace and love who you are and then express that.
How much does it cost?
The program is $2497 per person.
How much time will it take me?
I suggest you commit 2 hours per week. You will have * two 45-minute coaching calls per month, * a 1-hour group mentoring call, and * a 1-hour peer group call. That comes to 3 1/2 hours of scheduled stuff each month. The rest of the time is self-study: reading, watching videos and working on your stuff. For example, you will do self-assessments and journaling.
How long is the program
The program is 6 months long.
When does the course start and finish?
Women with Grit runs several times each year. When it is open for enrollment, you will see the button that encourages you to enroll now. Between sessions, you will be able to click to get notified when the next course is being run. Each session runs for 6 consecutive months.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
Can I may payments?
Yes, you can make 6 payments of $425
How do you accept payment?
You will tell me on the enrollment page how you want to pay. I will then make arrangements for one of the following * Interact E-transfer * Visa * Paypal * Cheque
Can you invoice my company?
Absolutely. When you get to the enrollment page, you will tell me how you want the payments set up and who specifically will be providing your funding.
Do I need any special technical skills?
Can you get into your email and check your Facebook? If so, you should be good! As with anything these days there is an element of technical stuff. We do conference calls that you will have to dial into. There is also a platform that you log into to access the self-study information.
What is Coaching?
Coaching is a conversation that makes you think deeply. I ask lots of questions, but they are powerful, thought-provoking questions. My coaching is sprinkled with mentoring. I share ideas, suggestions, and tools for you to use in your leadership and your life.
How do I convince my employer that this is valuable training for the organization and not just me?
Share the testimonial video on the main page with your leaders and let past participants speak for you. They are real women in real leadership roles who share not only the difference it made for them, but also for the organization.
Will this count as continuing course credits?
It just might! There are 30 hours of training over the 6-months. If you need something specific from me for your situation, just ask.
Will I receive a certificate of completion
For sure!
What if I am unhappy with the course?
I firmly believe in this program. I know personally, it works. I also know so many other women who have made it work. That is....if you do the work! If you have done the work and can show me that you have taken the steps outlined in the course and still are not happy with the results, I will provide you with a full refund. But, you have to do the work first! * You must attend or show that you have listened to all of the group calls. * You must participate in all 1-1 coaching sessions. * You must have completed the online training modules. If you can show me that you have done the work and still are not satisfied, I will gladly refund you :-)
What if I don't take this training?
This training may not be the right training for you, and that's ok. But my wish for you is to find ultimately more joy in your days, both at work and in your bigger life. If you aren't experiencing the level of happiness in your life that you desire right now, you must do something differently. Start somewhere * Read a book. * Watch a Ted Talk. * Quit your job. * Take other training * Find ways to increase your energy during the day. Do something. Your life depends on it.
