CAREER COACHING

Whether you're working on a presentation, looking for someone to brainstorm with outside of your organization, or just simply looking for some perspective, Career Coaching is the place to go.

Career Coaching is a members-only benefit that allows you to submit an inquiry and be matched with another member with more expertise in that area. We aim to connect members who are active in a variety of fields including but not limited to

  • Education Abroad
  • International Students & Scholars
  • International Enrollment Management
  • Campus Programming
  • and more! 


Connect with Women who are Experts in their Field

If you’re working through a specific project or skill, you will also be connected to women who have expertise in tasks like Budget Creation, Project Management, or Marketing and Social Media. As you learn and develop your own leadership style, these women can also be a resource. If you are looking for experts with experience in areas like NAFSA Leadership, Conference Proposals, and Volunteer Organizations, Career Coaching may have your perfect match.

The goal of Career Coaching is to provide League members with access to women with specific expertise that they may not otherwise come in contact with during the course of their daily work life. Career Coaching is intended to be professional in nature, and while informational interview requests are welcome, the facilitator has full discretion to make the connection between expert and member.

Mentor Circles

One of the cornerstones of a successful business model is collaboration. Whether around the table with colleagues from your own company or in a board room with professionals from around the field, there is value in bringing different perspectives to the table. The League understands the value of this process and recognizes that facilitating these conversations can take time and effort, so we’ve created Mentor Circles.

Take the opportunity to learn and grow from other women in international education on topics such as Blazing Your Career Trail and Designing a Well-Lived Life. Sessions commence four times a year, and groups are made up of 3-5 women per session. This is a MEMBERS ONLY benefit. Please use the button below to register on our Events page.


Why Groups? 

One-on-one mentoring relationships can sometimes cause undue stress on both mentor and mentee: Am I holding up my end of the partnership? Are we sharing the same expectations? By using small groups of four, the group will share the responsibility of the mentor role. These groups are considered to be safe spaces where conversations are confidential.

Current Topics

Members choose from one of three current workbooks:

  • Blazing Your Career Trail
  • Designing a Well-Lived Life
  • Negotiating

Research + Surveys

The Research & Outcomes Team has three specific goals within The League:

  1. Tell the Global Leadership League story through collecting quantitative and qualitative data on programs and services offered to League members,
  2. Understand the wants and needs of League members through an annual survey to enhance League offerings, and
  3. Create new knowledge by conducting original research on and with women working in the many areas of international education.

Members of the League benefit from the research conducted both internally and externally. Members who wish to learn or hone their research skills can volunteer to help gather and disseminate information important to The League…. A great resume builder for our League members.

WEBINARS

Interested in learning skills online from approachable experts? If so, our webinars are for you! We offer 3-4 one hour webinars every year tailored to the skills you want most.  We aim to meet you where you are, and based on the role of international educators, we know that it is not always convenient to meet in person. These webinars allow you to watch and learn in the comfort of your own office or home. The webinars will follow our themes and we will produce the best content possible with a goal of giving you take-away learning to apply to your daily work.

Anyone can view webinars for a nominal fee and members of the League will have access to the webinars for free. Consider membership in the League as a great investment in training that lasts for a year with even richer and more meaningful connections on top of the content.

Our upcoming webinars are always listed on the League's Events page of the site, so be sure to visit that page for more information!
