SPRING, TX -- A Forbes article once likened Executive Coaching for women to Career GPS, an analogy Rene Murata who runs that type of coaching businesses, can understand. Rene of CEOEssence says women who aspire to top offices do need a road map--because nearly everything about MBA courses, textbooks and self-help guides for aspiring leaders that exists is written by men and directed at men. Women, Rene says, are wired differently, more relationship-based. And that bears impact on every facet of how they manage, do business, and build corporate success.
While many women possess what’s known as executive presence, they don’t usually recognize it or display that “I’m a force to contend with” mindset. Rene, as her company name implies, helps women connect with their CEO Essence. From generating a different view of the self, to communicating with more sincerity and authority, to listening skills, to establishing trust with business partners, Rene’s leadership coaching offers women a multitude of strategies to help them gain those prized seats at the big table.
In her four August shows Rene will talk more about women’s mindset towards leadership, the changing tide of women in Engineering, and the businesses she runs that make such impact. Besides CEO Essence leadership coaching, Rene launched and runs PSM Risk, focused on risk management and process integrity in the engineering industry. She also developed RM Essence, a clothing line that reflects the needs of executive women—individual style, comfort, and the desire to be more ecologically conscious of what they are wearing. Rene Murata’s forthcoming clothing line will reflect the power dynamic, offering bold colors that help women make their own statement on the executive floor.
