Are you looking for your next act?

Do you find yourself at a crossroads, in a state of re-evaluation…looking inward and outward for answers to “what would I like to do next?” Whether you are seeking to align your interests and convictions with your career goals or looking for something beyond the typical definition of retirement, starting that inward shift can be daunting.

Leadership Encore! will help you examine your priorities and create a new mission for yourself. Regardless if you are seeking a new career path, looking to make the move from retirement to rewirement or wanting to expand your network, Leadership Encore! is designed to help you step up on a new stage.

Why Leadership Encore?

Our programming at Leadership Women has always been focused on experiential learning – examining the issues facing our nation, while helping women become intentional leaders.  With programs such as Leadership America and Leadership Texas, our mission is to ensure women’s full and effective participation and equal opportunities for leadership at all levels of decision-making in political, economic, and public life. But what about the specific needs of women at a crossroads?

Career Changes

Perhaps you are contemplating changes in your career – looking at profound questions – including asking some pretty basic questions about what you want out of life. Is your career keeping up with your deep interests and convictions? If you are not spending time the way you really want to, then Leadership Encore! can help.  Maybe it is time to examine your choices.

A New Type of Retirement

Are you finding that retirement isn’t what you thought it would be like?  For many women the concept has changed.  After all, we are living longer and healthier lives – so the earlier concept of moving into a life of golf games and looking after grandkids (while still there for some) now seems less relevant or appealing for many.  If you are searching for what retirement means to you – whether you seek to start a new business, or find a new way to give back…or get involved with a cause that interests you – Leadership Encore! can help you define what retirement means to you.

A Community of Like-Minded Women

Maybe you are looking to be part of a new network of like-minded women, who want to continue to learn new things, stay involved, and create a community of women around them to combat the feeling of social isolation after leaving your job.  If you are looking to prepare for a healthy and fulfilling ‘next act’, making an internal shift to answer the question ‘what would I like to do next’, or simply want to make new friends – Leadership Women Encore! is for you.
