Women Leading with Grace is an experiential program for you to gain strength, balance, courage, harmony and those positive emotions and skills that quickly build your confidence that get you to the next level.  It brings stress-reduction, self-care and inspires powerful choices.

This is what I’ve done brilliantly for more than 15 years.

Workshop Objective

Through a series of multi-disciplinary activities, together we cultivate the natural strengths that women possess.

Let’s us explore beyond where a strong and traditional mindset exists by building a mastery with women that leads with grace.

You will learn:

  • Practices to maintain balance, both grounded and centered – even in the face of chaos—to feel more successful in any interaction
  • To find greater stability to feel a stronger projected presence
  • To embody undeniable confidence to excel in all areas of your life
  • To feel more comfortable, at ease and in control
  • To project and powerful voice that reaches the listener and commands attention
  • To inspire powerful choices to coach yourself into empowerment.

With my approach, women are more easily able to embody, assimilate and integrate skills to use in all areas of their lives.  This work is a perfect blend of the head, heart and spirit.

Together we can confirm that women in full confidence will make the enormous difference in our world.

“Research findings consistently confirm that those organizations with the most women as senior leaders enjoy rates of return that are greater – often by double-digits – than those with far fewer or no women in their leadership ranks.”

– Sharon Allen, former Chairman of the Board, Deloitte LLP

TESTIMONIALS

“Martha, the morning session was absolutely transformative. The opportunity to share space, movement and breath with others was so impactful; understanding we have a kindred bond to connect with others, to share, to learn was amazing. You helped bring out the best of our selves. I would love to arrange a time for you to visit my campus as I would love to gift a session to women of my inner circle….will be back in touch with you shortly to explore.”  CEO, Healthcare Research

“I worked with Martha during a time of much change in my career, including a significant increase in responsibility. I realized that having great drive, a creative and strategic mind, and a successful track record were not going to be enough, and that I needed to SHOW my confidence in my capabilities in order to have credibility in my new role. Martha helped me learn how to portray my full confidence, and to have my presence embody my strength.  Her coaching and guidance has had a significant impact on my ability to shine!”           SVP, Director, Financial Services

“Martha’s work and her techniques transcend both the professional and personal. She individualizes programs to lead to execution, leadership and team development. Her focus on essential skills trains from C-Suite to entry-level. All of the above is most critical at this time when cultures have to blend “old guard” and millennials and we all need to evolve, communicate and empower for success.”          MD, Financial Service

“You lead with real grace and love.  I am invigorated.  I do want to be more positive and look for the best of every situation and not become negative (and less “I’m sorry”).  You have me thinking of being more in the moment and not trying to push my agenda, a peaceful place to be, but one I am less comfortable in.  This will be a work in progress for me.” MP, Consulting Services

MARTHA GELNAW – BIOGRAPHY

With 15 years of international business leadership experience with global companies and with 17 years of coaching and advising senior executives, Martha offer strategies and skills that have proven greater business results across all industries in finance and banking, professional services, media, healthcare, and technology.

Because Martha trained extensively with Master Teachers in voice, movement, improvisation and acting technique with Mike Nichols, Paul Sills, George Morrison, Patsy Rodenburg and others, she employs somatic (physical) learning approaches to offer her clients an undeniable presence and positive energy. It is combined with her extensive background in leadership and communication coaching.

With active learning Martha’s clients learn to embody confidence, authenticity, expressivity, clarity of communication and engagement —both verbal and non-verbal—in order to achieve their highest personal and professional goals.

These skills are not taught in school, on the job, or in most executive trainings – yet these are the interpersonal skills demanded from our women leaders today.

Her interactive, multi-disciplinary, experiential learning approach is sought out for its greatest effect and positive energy, linking her extensive background in business leadership, communication, improvisation, theatre arts, and mindfulness to help her clients find great success in their roles.

Can you imagine learning Physics, Biology or Chemistry through a lecture only approach? Of course not.

It was in the Lab that you learned how it all works. My work is the Lab.

It’s a learn-by-doing experiential approach to leadership.  And it works.
