“As a CEO, or as an executive or director for that matter, if women aren’t proportionately represented throughout your organisation, you aren’t facing a women’s issue — you’re facing a talent development issue with business implications. And so it’s important to bring your personal commitment and the same level of organizational accountability to that challenge as you would to any business issue.”
Susan Colantuono, CEO Leading Women


Expanding our capacity to support organisations throughout ANZ, Lighthouse is pleased to announce our partnership with Leading Women to bring several innovative leadership programs to corporations, women, and managers in Australia and New Zealand.

The Lighthouse Way

“Lighthouse’s approach is to source world leading IP from organisations such as Leading Women to ensure that our customized programs are best practice solutions for our clients who are looking to build core leadership capabilities across their enterprises,” said Mark Emerson, Lighthouse Group’s Managing Director. “Leading Women’s research-based solutions are the best programs we’ve seen for women’s leadership development. These solutions align perfectly with our goal of delivering world class leadership training.”

We have a unique three-step service model “The Lighthouse Way”, which enables us to connect these programs to your business context and strategic intentions, build capability and ensure business outcomes.

To help organisations reduce the leadership gap and women to advance, we bring three key programs:

Breakthrough Leadership for Senior Leaders
Strengthen strategic and financial acumen enabling participants to be seen in succession conversations as viable candidates for executive positions.

Purpose Power Presence for Middle Managers
Positions middle managers for high performance as business leaders as well as people leaders.

Ready Set Lead for Emerging Leaders
Lays the foundation for future leadership success by providing key tools and knowledge for making the transition from individual contributor to manager of individuals.

We believe the Advancing Women programs enhance our ability to provide enterprise-wide leadership development in adjacency with our other programs: Building Business Acumen, Innovation Mindset and Culture, Coaching Conversations and Personal Leadership.
