We are on a mission. 

By 2030 we want a minimum of 25% of all corporate CEOs in Europe to be women. 

Compared to the current 7%, this is massive exponential growth. 

But compared to 50%, as it should be, this is still far from our ultimate goal: gender equality and equity at all levels of top leadership. 

This is why we are here: to create a powerful and vibrant community – a real container for the mindset shift necessary to catapult more competent, wise, emotionally intelligent women into top leadership. 

To bring this goal to life we need YOU and we need to take action together NOW.

That’s why in THE CEO ELEVATION CIRCLE we are, above all, PROACTIVE in relation to our careers and lives. 

Together we commit to creating endless growth opportunities and thriving for ourselves and for other women through our vision, intention, and inspired action.

THE CEO ELEVATION CIRCLE VISION

We strive to live in a world in which women don’t have to choose between their health, family, or sanity, and the fulfillment of their professional and human potential at work. 

We come together to create a world in which we, our daughters, and granddaughters can follow our dreams and grow into top leadership without bias and prejudice, and with more support, ease, and joy.

THE TOP 5 REASONS PREVENTING WOMEN FROM BECOMING THE NEXT CEO

  • FEAR of losing their loved ones, of burning out, of losing their integrity, and of failing with a splash when trying to deliver upon shareholders’ unrealistic expectations.
  • LACK OF SUPPORT in their personal and social lives, lack of peer and societal understanding for their rare ambition.
  • LACK OF FLEXIBLE WORK AND TOP LEADERSHIP ROLES in fully distributed remote and hybrid teams and organizations.
  • LACK OF QUALITY, CONTINUOUS, PERSONALIZED LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT TRAINING and strategic mindset development at work.
  • LACK OF A COMMUNITY where women can learn step by step how to become the next appointed or self-made CEO while having their dreams validated, endorsed, guided, and cheered upon in a loving, supporting group of peers.

We know this because at VORNICA® we work daily with women CEOs and future CEOs.

We see their challenges and struggles. We see what it takes to become AND to stay a wise, emotionally intelligent woman CEO.

And that’s exactly why we are here. 

Our community is a magnet for women who strive to:

  1. create more flexibility in the workplace for themselves and others;
  2. be or become outstanding distributed remote and hybrid leaders;
  3. embrace technology and its promises in order to create a better world of tomorrow;
  4. develop a regional and global mindset, from which they can address truly relevant problems with adequate solutions driving innovation and transformation for our world;
  5. co-create the sustainable solutions of tomorrow shoulder-to-shoulder with men from a place of respect, dignity, and full empowerment.

HOW CAN YOU BECOME THE NEXT CEO?

There are two ways to becoming the next CEO: 

  1. To navigate your company’s internal ecosystem and hierarchy successfully in order to become the next appointed CEO, or
  2. To transition from corporate into entrepreneurship and become the founder and CEO of your own company. 

THE CEO ELEVATION CIRCLE, our community of female leaders and future leaders, nurtures and supports both career paths.

WE BRING YOU 4 STRATEGIC TRACKS FOR YOUR LEADERSHIP AND CAREER GROWTH

THE CEO ELEVATION CIRCLE NURTURES 4 STRATEGIC CAREER GROWTH PATHS: 

  1. ON TRACK TO DISTRIBUTED LEADERSHIP: This track is ideal for current and future team leaders who would like to become better at what they do, learn how to lead brilliant regional and global teams in a distributed remote-first and hybrid work environment, and leverage their success as team leaders for their career growth.
  2. ON TRACK TO THE BOARD: This track is ideal for women who aim to grow into a corporate executive and non-executive board. Here we bring you interviews with current and former board members, relevant stories, and inspiration that will help you craft your own strategy to become a well-paid, well-recognized corporate board member. 
  3. ON TRACK TO CEO: This track drips with strategy for advancing from the board into the CEO seat. Becoming the next CEO is often the product of intention, strategy, and exceedingly smart stakeholder management. We are here with you every step of the way, from crafting you initial strategy to “your coronation” as the next CEO.
  4. ON TRACK TO MY OWN BUSINESS: This is our most dynamic track dedicated to women who decided to move from the corporate environment into entrepreneurship and to start their own businesses. In this track you get all the support you need to shift your mindset, recognize hidden risks, and take the most effective steps to become successful fast when you’re on your own. 

HOW WE ARE DIFFERENT FROM OTHER COMMUNITIES FOR WOMEN?

There are numerous communities for women out there, both local, regional, and global.

Our virtual community is built as an asynchronous-first robust virtual container aimed to support you anytime you need AND to bring you best practices from belonging and leading in a distributed work environment. 
  3. WE BRING YOU TOP QUALITY, PREMIUM CONNECTIONS, AND STRATEGIC LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT. We combine strategic networking with continuous learning in our bonus video courses, workshops, and career acceleration bootcamps. Our quality is top-of-the-class and it’s offered to you in a most accessible and affordable format. 
  4. IN OUR COMMUNITY YOU NEED TO BE PROACTIVE. We know that your transformation and growth will come only as an outcome of your inspired action-taking, and we are willing to put everything behind you when you need to act. But YOU need to act. We have an engagement policy that is very clear and intentional on proactivity in our community, and we welcome only members who are serious about their intentions to elevate themselves and other women to their full glory.
