The volatility and complexity of contemporary business requires a new brand of leadership – one that is both responsive to the accelerated pace of change and upheaval in the global marketplace, as well as one that is deeply grounded in an inspired and authentic leadership presence. Nowhere is this more important than in the Information Security, Privacy and Risk Management industries, where the challenges faced by today’s leaders involve expanding and complex roles that mirror the breathless pace of emerging technologies and their myriad vulnerabilities.In response to this heightened emphasis on the critical role of leadership, as well as its member requests, the Executive Women’s Forum is pleased to announce a new leadership development offering, the "EWF Leadership Journey”. This unique program is created by Joyce Brocaglia, CEO of Alta Associates and founder of the EWF and facilitated by Linda Dolceamore, EWF Director of Leadership Development.
The EWF Leadership Journey is a comprehensive virtual leadership development program. This unique professional offering applies a blended approach that integrates executive coaching, self-assessment, experiential learning, self-discovery, and peer exchange. By bringing together a carefully selected small group of accomplished businesswomen, all with experience in the Information Security, Privacy or Risk Management industries, the EWF Leadership Journey helps you to optimize your individual performance, authentic personal leadership skills and your organizational impact—while achieving new levels of confidence and success.
The year I spent with the Leadership Journey was life changing on a professional and personal level. It was a study in leadership style; a deep dive into my what made me tick and the values that I projected as a leader. The forum was very intimate and empowering giving me not only one on one attention but also group engagement to share ideas. I’ve completed the journey a stronger leader and built a self-awareness not found by reading the newest management self-improvement book. This new foundation of understanding is one I’ll carry in my personal relationships as well as the shadow of a leader I cast. A great return on investment for me, my team, my company and my family. Win-Win!

Benefits for You and Your Organization
Regardless of industry, any organization is only as effective as the strength and caliber of its leaders. Forward-thinking businesses that are committed to staying cutting edge and on top of the change curve recognize that investing in the development of leaders cultivates cultures of high engagement, resilience and bottom-line results.
The EWF Leadership Journey provides a venue to develop the behavioral skills and competencies of effective leaders. Join us to explore and hone your authentic leadership presence, the element that author Kevin Cashman defines as "the essence of leadership—the foundation that underlies external success and achievement."
By investing in the EWF Leadership Journey, you will gain:
- A clearer sense of what grounds you as a leader and a more powerful and engaging leadership presence.
- A living laboratory in which to master your ability to communicate with all of your critical stakeholders—company executives, boards of directors, industry leaders and media.
- A place for bench-marking and sharing best practices with trusted colleagues in your industry.
- Practical, tangible techniques and takeaways that you can implement in your own environment.
- A greater sense of resilience and adaptability to the shifting requirements and complexities of your ever-expanding role.

- A place to explore ways to more effectively integrate your personal and professional lives for seamless alignment.
- An opportunity to develop deep trusted relationships with other women in your industry who share similar experiences, challenges and successes.
What You Can Expect
Rather than offering cookie cutter leadership tools and tips, the EWF Journey will enable participants to focus on their personal leadership development with women who face similar challenges, or hold similar positions of influence in their areas of professional expertise. By meeting virtually during a year long program with a select group of women in the information security, privacy and risk management industries, participants will experience a profoundly personal exploration, during which they will further develop a leadership approach driven by their most deeply held values and aligned with their companies goals.
