What previous Ascenders say:

        This leadership program helped me get promoted. I was able to immediately apply the skills to challenges at work which helped me perform better and feel more confident. As a new mom, I almost wasn't sure if I would have time for it but it couldn't have been better for my career growth.

        I'm blown away by how much I grew during Ascend. The exercises and frameworks transformed how I approach getting buy-in and helped me gain confidence. I'm now better able to collaborate with stakeholders (even difficult ones!). I love the incredibly supportive community I learned with. This is, hands down, the best program.

        More than worth it. I was struggling with imposter syndrome when I started managing a new team. Shivani's coaching and the actionable tools helped me feel confident in my role. The program helped me build rapport and get buy-in at all levels. Even though I already had a lot going on, I'm so happy that I committed to my growth and joined Ascend.

        This was the first training program that made me miss my cohort so much! The combination of camaraderie with incredible women, tangible tools to apply directly to my challenges, and safe space to be real was invaluable. I can't recommend the program enough. It was life-changing.

Do any of these scenarios feel familiar?

01

You want to be more influential and effective so your ideas are listened to and you can rally difficult stakeholders to become allies.

02

You’ve been promoted, are doubting your abilities, and wish you had a mentor to guide you as you navigate your new role.

03

You’re doing great work but your team doesn’t recognize your value.

04

You’re tapped as a high potential individual, but your age and experience level prevent you from more leadership opportunities.

05

Imposter syndrome is a loop running in your mind, and you don’t yet have the skills, strategies, and tools to further your career.

I’m a leadership coach and leader passionate about supporting women to excel as leaders. 

I’m proud to say that the women I work with are better prepared to resolve tough work challenges and feel more confident to take on larger management roles. 

I have an MBA from Harvard Business School and I’m an experienced leader at top companies. My work experience has taught me it’s the soft skills that help you move up: your ability to build relationships, influence effectively, and inspire teams. 

As I developed these skills, I felt more confident, accelerated my career growth, and made an impact, not just on my teams but also on executives and board of directors. 

I created this program to empower women with the skills and support required to grow in their careers and be influential leaders. I want to help you achieve the career that you want.
