Elevating Women Leaders 

with Nataly Kogan

Elevating Women Leaders is a year-long program for women executives and founders, dedicated to cultivating emotional health and people-embracing leadership skills to lead, grow, and thrive in a sustainable way.

My Bigger Why for creating the Elevating Women Leaders program

This program is for you if you want to:

  • Feel more confident as you move through uncertainty and effectively manage the inevitable challenges and stress of leadership
  • Be a centered, calm, and daring leader, who can meaningfully guide and support others in their growth and development
  • Show up as your authentic self and allow others to do the same, in an environment of support and trust
  • Amplify your presence and ability to communicate powerfully in high-stakes situations, including public speaking and presentations
  • Give challenging feedback so that it’s openly received and helps people grow and develop
  • Preserve and optimize your energy so you can be at your best, including on difficult days and during times of change and transition
  • Realistically prioritize your well-being into your packed schedule

Tricia Dirks"I met Nataly when she spoke at our annual President’s Circle event for our top sales and services professionals.  Her message of gratitude, purpose and happiness rang true for me. I am such a believer in introspection, personal growth, and getting up each day and working again to be my best self.

When Nataly asked if I would be interested in joining her first Elevating Women Leaders group, I jumped at the chance to meet other talented female leaders working on the same stuff that I am.  And it has been a gratifying experience.  It is causing me to consciously think about not only my behavior, but what I think about each day.  It’s inspirational, uplifting, a learning experience and fun."

Gillian Meek four"When I heard Nataly speak at a conference, I was immediately inspired by the way she shared her personal journey of growth, resulting in practices that are scientifically proven to improve productivity and support leadership. It also didn't hurt that she had a Keds story as a part of her history!

When she invited me to be a part of her inaugural Elevating Women Leaders Group, I thought the opportunity to engage with a group of diverse and talented women around these tools was too good to pass up. I have found the 'yellow' thread of gratitude (one of the core Happier principles) has made a profound impact on my team, creating an environment and culture where people feel supported and prepared to take on the toughest challenges. I have also met incredible women who define what it means to be an Elevated Women Leader."

Jenn McColly HR Mag3“Being part of EWL has been a gift. It’s been a long time, longer than I’d like to admit, since I’ve prioritized time to dedicate towards my own development as a leader and a whole person. As a business leader and mom, I always prioritize others. EWL has reminded me of the importance of prioritizing my own personal development. EWL provides a safe forum with like-minded female leaders, creating space for one another to be vulnerable. I am a big believer that you will get out what you put in, so really lean in to the opportunity to connect and engage in order to maximize the impact the program will have on you.”

Sharon Kan really cropped"I learned to listen to the inner voice and practice gratitude but the most important thing I learned to practice together with other women who lead. When we come together we can amplify the results, we can change together. 

And finally, you can’t learn if you don’t have a great teacher. Nataly is an incredible teacher, her program works and most of all she created a safe place for us to share our stories and let us evolve and grow."

Christie Randolph 2“Sometimes on the leadership journey as a woman, it feels lonely and difficult to connect and share our challenges with other leaders. EWL brings amazing women together to talk about emotional well-being, a topic that I believe people think about but rarely apply to their lives, especially at work.

I’ve always been a high performing leader, often going to epic lengths to always appear ‘game ready’ for anything — even if it meant sacrificing time with family and friends, late hours, or very little sleep. Soon after I joined EWL, a new career opportunity was presented to me that I couldn’t pass up. Stepping into uncharted land I knew I couldn’t sustain my ‘game ready’ mentally. EWL has taught me the art of acceptance, how to give myself a moment to feel the emotion but not to let the moment occupy my entire day. EWL also has helped me to accelerate the trust journey with my new direct reports and helped set the culture for how our team works.

If you feel like you're wearing a mask and putting on appearances more often than not, it’s time to join EWL. You deserve it. Thank you Nataly and team for creating such a wonderful space to grow.”

Christie Randolph, Director, Sales Systems at SAP Concur
