It’s about the people. Create a trusted community in your organization they can rely on as a support resource.

Start with a custom self-leadership model which guides individuals in-person, then have them follow through with online learning which fits their schedule and a platform to ask questions and stay the course with momentum.

The Gutsy Leadership Academy provides an online platform of step-by-step learning with a strong community across the regions of your organization with full transparency into current issues.

Educate men of the challenges. Bring transparency to the concerns across every workplace location.

Empower everyone to contribute to the conversation - confidentially with their concerns heard.

  • A trusted confidential community; Participants have control over their own account profile. They can upload their profile photo or not, share their real name or use a pseudonym. Participant e-mails are not revealed.
  • Spread mentoring, experience and learning through storytelling. Participants combine what they’ve learned along with their own experience to bring into a conversation. Everyone benefits from the experience of others.
  • Rich interaction: see discussion activity, embed video and audio content across your organization in one central place.
  • Select any number of Moderators to lead and post discussion questions in the community.
  • Build a forum with valuable feedback from peers which not only helps employees benefit from shared ideas, but also applies positive pressure for participants to add to the conversation making an impact.
  • Customize your virtual community with your organization’s branding and presence.
  • Invite employees and view login activity for those actively participating to measure topic trends.

Marisa Santoro is a leadership trainer and confidence skills coach who has walked in the shoes of the women she now trains, having consistently advanced as an executive in an male-dominated IT, abrasive Wall Street culture. She teaches exactly what to do, motivating and training the women of your organization along the way following the steps she delivers.  She’s not a jack-of-all-trades. She is very focused on what works to get women feeling confident, advancing and owning their power while creating a heart-centered leadership awareness across the entire organization.
