Coaching for Women in Leadership
DR ALMIRA ROSS
IS A CERTIFIED, AWARD WINNING COACH, AUTHOR, AND NLP MASTER PRACTITIONER WHO EMPOWERS SENIOR WOMEN LEADERS TO RECONNECT WITH THEIR GENIUS SO THEY CAN TRANSFORM THEIR WORK ENVIRONMENTS AND MAKE THEIR SPECIAL CONTRIBUTION FROM A SPACE OF ALIGNMENT, LOVE AND JOY.
She trained as an electrical engineer and enjoyed a successful 25 year career in information technology, rising to the top of her profession. One day, things went sour. The pressures and stresses of her last corporate role — as a high-powered senior leader — began to take their toll. Mentally, physically and emotionally exhausted, struggling to cope in a toxic work environment, she longed for meaning — for that ‘something’ she knew was missing, but couldn’t name it.
She chose to leave, recover from burnout, and forge a second career for herself as a woman’s leadership coach. In this capacity she has helped women create a healthy work-life balance and encouraged them to step fully into their power and transform their work environment into a healthy, inclusive workplace that enables everyone to flourish.
She has coached hundreds of women, taking them through powerful leadership programmes that have transformed their lives — at home and at work. With improved relationships, renewed energy and confidence, her clients live their purpose, and truly lead the change they want to see in their world.
Right now the world needs conscious, compassionate and courageous leaders to deal with the challenges of the 21st century. Women are ideally suited to step into these leadership roles, yet, are overwhelmed with the dual responsibilities, pressures and demands of home and a work environment that often fails to support them.
Almira’s coaching programs prepare and empower women to lead from the heart and make the contribution only they can make to create a better work environment and a better world. To grow into the empowered, conscious, compassionate and courageous leaders so needed right now.

“I WOULD SAY TO ANYONE
THINKING OF WORKING WITH
ALMIRA. DO NOT HESITATE! THIS
WOMAN IS AMAZING.”
Hi, I'm Dr. Almira Ross
And that ‘Dr’ stands for a PhD in Electrical Engineering. Because I chose, many years ago, to follow my passion and without realising it, lead the way for many women in what is now STEM.
In the early 1970s, though, there was no mention of women in STEM. They simply didn’t exist. And I never thought of myself as a leader. I was simply doing what I loved, relatively unconcerned and unaware of the impact my choice of profession was likely to have on me and on other women who might follow in my footsteps.
Nor did I realise how one other choice would impact not just that career, but every aspect of my life.
A FATEFUL DECISION THAT BROUGHT ME FACE TO FACE WITH PURE, BOUNDLESS HUMAN POTENTIAL. POTENTIAL THAT EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US CAN TAP INTO TO LEAD A JOYOUS, MEANINGFUL AND FULFILLING LIFE OF CONTRIBUTION.
It happened one bitterly cold Winter Solstice, on a lonely stretch of road in northwestern Ontario. I chose this journey. The first truly adult decision I’d ever made.
It’s pitch black. Snow flurries dancing in the headlights. Then suddenly bright lights directly in front of me. A crash! I fall forward into the blackness. Lift out of my body and float up on a ribbon of golden light into a world I’d never imagined possible. I expand to fill the universe — to be the universe.
AND IN AN INSTANT THAT COULD HAVE BEEN AN ETERNITY, A LIFE CHANGING REVELATION. I KNOW ALL THAT IS, WAS, AND EVER MIGHT BE. I AM PLUGGED IN TO A SOURCE OF UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, INFINITE POWER AND POTENTIAL.
That near death experience transformed me. Knowing we have access to this state of pure potential, I wanted to access it at will. Connect to and be at one with this Higher Intelligence, and allow that genius to flow through my work, my life. It’s blessed my life, my work with joy, fulfilment and wonder. And enabled me to be the conscious and compassionate leader so needed today.
And it can bless yours too. By studying the mind, the latest in brain research and neurophysiology, I can now bring others to this same powerful flow state.
YOU'LL BE INTRODUCED TO IT, SHOULD YOU CHOOSE
— ALWAYS A CHOICE — TO WORK WITH ME.
RIGHT NOW THE WORLD NEEDS CONSCIOUS, COMPASSIONATE AND COURAGEOUS LEADERS, TO DEAL WITH THE CHALLENGES OF THE 21ST CENTURY.
WOMEN ARE IDEALLY SUITED TO STEP INTO THESE LEADERSHIP ROLES, YET, ARE OVERWHELMED WITH THE DUAL RESPONSIBILITIES, PRESSURES AND DEMANDS OF HOME AND A WORK ENVIRONMENT THAT OFTEN THWARTS A WOMAN'S PROGRESS.

Join one of her programs and discover how, collectively, you can create a better work environment and a world where everyone can flourish.
In this post pandemic world, it is difficult to know the way, let alone go it and show it. Yet, as leaders, we’re expected to lead the way — direct others with confidence and certainty, when one thing and one thing only is certain: CHANGE.
With myriad technologies accelerating and converging on one another, pretty much every business and industry is ripe for disruption. So how do you lead others, when your usual touchstones are no longer reliable, or even there?
Your North Star
That clear, unwavering vision you have for a better world. A vision fully aligned with who you are and what truly matters to you. Holding that vision; serving that vision and staying true to your values are what will guide you through these uncertain and challenging times.
Sharing that vision with your team
Getting alignment on a few key values and their shared meaning can make a huge difference in realising that vision. A created future worth working towards.
Agility and flexibility
To dance with the uncertainty. Make courageous decisions with the best information you have at the time, knowing you may need to change them as the situation develops.
Knowing you don’t know all the answers. Creating a safe space where you — and your team — can open up, admit to your challenges, your strengths and failings, and bring more of your authentic selves to the work place.
Upping your DQ
With digital technologies encroaching on every aspect of our lives, impacting your business and work environment, you need to become ever more digitally savvy. Not just awareness of these disruptive technologies. A fuller appreciation of the impact they have on you personally and professionally, on your team, your company. And importantly, how you can exploit them sensitively and most effectively in the service of your vision.
For a lively discussion of the challenges of agile leadership for this digital decade, join me at one of our regular Round Table discussions.
Meet other female leaders, share your challenges, celebrate your achievements, feel supported. Become more empowered to lead with confidence, courage and compassion into the future your vision can create.
