9 Leadership Power Tools to Advance Your Career

A self-paced online course for women who want to embrace their power to lead with intention and confidence.

Imagine your ideal leadership role where you  -- and who you've always known you were meant to be -- can fully thrive.

Using a combination of only 9 power tools.

Without being passed over for positions and promotions you are qualified for and deserving of, without worrying about what your next steps are going to be and without having extra time for an in-person course or weekend retreat (who has time for that?).

Before I tell you all about this life-changing program, let’s talk about who it’s really for.

  • You value diversity, equity and inclusion in gender parity. You’re a hard-working, driven woman with no shortage of motivation who’s tired of hiding her gifts and being passed up for promotions.
  • The pandemic has shifted not only your day-to-day life but your mindset, causing you to consider what changes you can make so that your career works for you and not the other way around
  • You are ready to take the lead in your life and career, bringing your power and leadership forward so that you can live and work in your full authenticity with confidence, passion and grace.  
Ask yourself this: How long have you been frozen by Imposter Syndrome or feeling "othered?" How many times have you put others before yourself? 

Working after-hours to pick up a coworker’s slack. Letting a male coworker take the credit for a project. Relinquishing any of the glory of self care and, instead, making sure your spouse, kids, family, friends, coworkers and superiors have everything they need first?

This course will teach you how to be your own advocate using your own powerful voice.

Could this pandemic be a source of power?

Ladies, think about it. We aren’t given opportunities like this very often. A once-in-a-lifetime transformational opportunity to come out better, stronger and more prosperous.

For women whose lives and livelihoods have been disrupted by COVID, this course will help you rethink or retool your career path and make a plan to achieve your goal. It will help you answer, "Where do I go from here?"

Chaos is inevitable, just as change is inevitable. Could chaos and controversy be an opportunity rather than a detriment?

Will you "Carpe the Chaos?"

"From my career experience, I believe chaos presents opportunity, and that has given me the courage I’ve needed to act many times when I was actually quaking in my boots.”

– Gloria Feldt, Course Leader and Women's Power Advocate

Your Powerful Authenticity is Needed.

CONSIDER THIS: The world needs what you have to offer! But it’s not possible if you continue to put yourself last and stay small. Your vision, ideas and plans have the power to shape the future, but not if you keep them to yourself.  

Can you imagine what that feels like? 

It might feel bold and uncomfortable at first but, to your soul, it simply feels like HOME. 

Look at it this way. You are here on this very web page - among the billions of other web pages - for a very specific reason. 

It's time to live unlimited! Set the agenda; don’t wait for someone else to set it.

Hi! I am Gloria Feldt, bestselling author of No Excuses: 9 Ways Women Can Change How We Think About Power and cofounder and president of a 501(c)3 non-profit called Take The Lead.

We’re not ashamed to say that our mission is BOLD.

Take The Lead prepares, develops, inspires and propels all women of all diversities and intersectionalities to take their fair and equal share of leadership positions across all sectors by 2025.

TRANSLATION: We will accept nothing less than leadership gender parity by 2025.

This course will teach you nine very specific, female-oriented tactics that allow you to find and channel your inner strength and power. These are your power tools.

We believe you are already empowered. Our job is to give you the tools, show you how to use them and then set you free to conquer your world!

Join me to reveal the truth about female power and unveiling yours.

Learn How to Identify Your Unique Power

My Story: From Teen Mom to CEO

You see, before I became a New York Times best-selling author and feminist leader, long before I founded Take The Lead, I was a teen mom in West Texas with no employable skills. I didn’t know how to shine my own light without feeling bad or guilty about it. I was scared, feeling powerless and lacking confidence.

I learned the hard way that progress in the workplace isn’t only about your degree, working twice as hard, or being a team player…

It’s about getting to know your unique value and embracing your power.

But the problem is, it’s difficult to pinpoint exactly where you are in the continuum of embracing and growing your own power.

“These are transformative concepts ... the concepts and tools gained from the program, and the relationships gained alongside them, are invaluable.”

-Michelle Genece Patterson, Senior Producer, CNN

You are the CEO of your own life.

A leader is anyone who gets things done. I invite you to find out how to advance your career.

That applies to you whether you are an active participant in the workforce right now or not. The pandemic affected many of us and we’re all in different places in our journeys because of it. Some of you have been displaced and while others are still working but the thing we all have in common is that we're done sitting on the bench.

Let's start leading!

9 Practical Leadership Power Tools to Advance Your Career is a must-attend course for all women. Whether you are at the top of the corporate ladder or just beginning your climb, you will greatly benefit from the resources, knowledge and insight provided in this course.


- Dara Albright, Chief Strategy Officer, Crowdnetic


What do these women have in common? 

Starbucks names Mellody Hobson Board Head

MSNBC names Rashida Jones President

Netflix names Bozoma Saint John CMO

Citibank names Jane Fraser CEO

The Gap names Sonia Syngal CEO

They are pioneers in their field and respective positions. And they all accomplished something BIG in 2020, of all years! We can't do big while being small. 

And that is just the short list. 

How can you advance or pioneer your career in such a disjointed and disrupted world climate? 

Using proven, real-world and actionable tools. Our online course - 9 Leadership Power Tools to Advance Your Career - gets actionable results unlike any other! 


First, consider your current situation and, then, your next career move. We are living in uncertain times, so you have to ask yourself some tough questions.  

  • What has the pandemic changed for you? Has your career turned into chaos?
  • Is now the time to stay in the corporate world or take the leap of faith to entrepreneurship? 
  • Was your position eliminated due to the pandemic? Being laid off can be scary. Where will you find work?
  • Is your job “fine?” Are you the only woman in the room and feel you don’t have a voice? 
  • Or have you been home by choice and now have that itch to go back to work? Maybe you’re feeling as though your break from the workforce is over. 

FACT: The way in which women and men speak to each other in the workplace can impede your career! 

One thing you’ll learn in this valuable course is something called “gender bilingual communication.” You’ll learn to speak and become fluent in the language of leadership and power. Why is that important? Because you have the power to define yourself. When you use it, you command the conversation from the outset. With intention, you set the agenda, define your terms and translate the meaning of power from power-over to power-to.

Learn from the women who, with full confidence, shucked Imposter Syndrome.

What is Imposter Syndrome? A collection of feelings of inadequacy that persist despite evident success. 

9 Leadership Power Tools to Advance Your Career will teach you the difference between oppressive “power over” and generative “power to.”

In the words of Brené Brown, “We can’t understand leadership if we don’t talk about power.” So making that distinction between being right vs. getting it right makes all the difference in the world! 

Once we have shucked Imposter Syndrome and are working in “power to” mode, several things happen: 

  • You don’t have to compete if everyone has the same goal; the pie is infinite. 
  • You can be sensitive while being assertive. 
  • You can care for the whole while caring for yourself. 
  • You can unite and inspire rather than divide and dispirit.

I highly recommend this course. You'll learn so much that you can use right away.

“I used what I had and defined my terms this year [2 of the program's 9 Power Tools] and it landed me right where I want to be: championing women of color in and across journalism and media. In accepting my new role, I negotiated for more money than what was originally offered, laying out a clear and concise case for it and leveraging my experience and some of the concessions I'd be making with the rest of the compensation package. We landed a fair package that both parties are happy about. I wasn't just fighting for more money in my pocket, but also thinking of setting a new and higher standard for women who come into the company after me.”

-Christina Tapper, Deputy Editor, ZORA

In the words of Glennon Doyle, “You’re a goddamn cheetah.” Don’t let anyone - especially that pesky voice inside your head - tell you otherwise.

Listen. It’s not your fault that you’ve been raised in a patriarchy. Many would say a monarchial patriarchy, at that, am I right?

You haven’t been allowed to own your power.

It’s been talked out of you, gaslighted out of you and sometimes beaten out of you. Powerful women are any number of negatively perceived things. Bad. Bitchy. Demanding. Rude. Mean-spirited. 

But we know that isn’t the truth and it's our turn to change the perception!

9 Leadership Power Tools to Advance Your Career: Built by Women for Women.

These are tools for self-realization and dominance used to hack away at the self-limiting stories you have A) been told by others and B) told yourself. The implicit bias you’ve unknowingly learned, shaped by our patriarchal culture. This is not a blame game. It isn’t anyone’s fault. Men have been taught the same things and we have courses for them, too! 

These 9 Leadership Power Tools will prepare and propel you to achieve your HIGHEST intentions. It's all-access to the secret strategies I’ve learned over the years pertaining to unparalleled career breakthroughs for women like you.

And it’s all 100% online, done at your own pace. 


Your only purpose is to be your unique self. It’s not to compete with other women (or men). What a relief! You only have to be you - and you are the only one who can do that - but you first have to channel your inner cheetah. 


We can help you find her. The vulnerable, instinctual, powerful her.
