WLFC is excited to announce its Professional Development and Leadership Academy, led by Stephanie Hanna of The Other 85.


We are proud to partner with Stephanie Hanna of The Other 85 to bring you a one-of-a-kind small-group professional development coaching geared to help us become stronger, more effective leaders and take our careers to the next level.


This intimate group of no more than 12 women will meet four times over eight months for a deep dive into some of the most critical leadership and networking components to our success.  Additionally, in between the sessions you will have two 30-minute private coaching calls with Stephanie to keep you accountable, talk about any pain points as they come up, and get additional personalized coaching specific to your individual needs.

After each session you will leave with personalized, tangible tools and techniques you can begin implementing right away.  The topics we will be covering include:

  • The 5 Biggest Networking Mistakes and How to Overcome Them

  • Feedback: How to Give + Receive It
