Act with power, strengthen negotiating skills, learn to manage teams, and lead with impact in this unique leadership program for women on the rise.

There’s no time like the present to embark on your leadership journey. High-Potential Women Leaders Program gives you powerful skills, strategies, confidence, and connections to meet your professional goals and deepen your impact. This intensive, two-week live online program is a research-driven, career-accelerating experience that will not only transform the way you negotiate and manage teams, it will fundamentally change the way you lead.

It’s no surprise that men and women differ in their leadership styles. But even when they do the same thing, they are often perceived differently. As a high-potential woman leader preparing to take on more responsibilities, learning how to navigate the workplace and broaden your executive presence are essential. High-Potential Women Leaders Program will help you understand where power comes from, and, more importantly, what you can do moving forward to increase your influence and impact.

You’ll gain insights from Stanford GSB faculty members who make it their business to help you challenge your assumptions, confront your fears, and turn obstacles into opportunities. Explore the perceptions, behaviors, stereotypes, and backlash that women uniquely face, and transform those empirical results into effective strategies and solutions. And, experience it all in the company of other dedicated women as you create a personal and professional network you can leverage throughout your career. This program is open to individuals of all backgrounds and genders.
