Founded by executive coaches and professional moms for professional moms, Working MAMA provides a platform for working women, as leaders in organizations and as mothers, to honor their career aspirations and achieve self-defined job success while experiencing satisfaction in their roles outside of work. The program recognizes that regularly changing personal demands require shifts in behavior or mindset to support professional growth and development.
In small group format and in community with other women, participants set change goals designed to increase their capacity and happiness in their work. Executive coaches facilitate the groups and support participants in identifying specific opportunities for sustained change against their goals, and developing action plans to support goal execution and achievement.
Coaching groups are limited to 10 women and meet once monthly for six months. Each monthly meeting occurs over breakfast or lunch and lasts for two hours. An organization can sponsor a Working MAMA group for its employees or individuals can register (see below) to join an independent Working MAMA group.
The six session series covers a working mom’s relationship to her job, her children, her partner, her community and her self. The program is based on a change model developed by Harvard University Professors, Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey.
Participants also enjoy informal networking and conversation at the beginning and end of each session.
