The prestigious Leadership Awards salute the world’s top leadership practitioners and programs and highlight their roles in developing their most important asset - their people.

1st Humana Inc, Development Acceleration Program 2nd PSEG, GROW 3rd Sysco Corporation in collaboration with Newberry Executive Solutions, WOW! Women On the Way to Peak Performance ProgramSM

The WOW! Women On the Way to Peak Performance ProgramSM (WOW! ProgramSM) was a partnership between Newberry Executive Solutions and Sysco Corporation. Designed to help high-potential women achieve greater career success and to have a bigger impact on the business, the program: • Strengthened leadership skills in areas that women often struggle with, and areas proven to drive high performance • Provided relevant content and tools that are easy to implement and that get results • Was delivered in a simple, structured, meaningful way

Neena Newberry designed the WOW! ProgramSM to make it easy for companies to implement with audio and exercises to prepare participants before attending each monthly in-person meeting, where they applied the content further. Two officers at Sysco, Sandra Carson and Raina Avalon, facilitated the meetings, bringing invaluable company perspective and experience to the program.

Sysco’s results are exciting. Over 50% of the women have since been promoted, crediting some of the shifts they made to lessons they learned through the WOW! ProgramSM. Participants shared many examples of how a particular module had had a significant impact on how they approached a project or their daily work and, consequently, their business results. The women are more confident and better prepared for challenges in the company, and are paying it forward in ways we hadn’t expected, expanding the reach and impact of the WOW! ProgramSM.

This program was also recognized with a second award, the Winners’ Circle award for Best Executive Coaching. The complete list of this year’s award winners will be published in the February edition of Leadership Excellence Essentials. The Leadership Excellence publication will also feature interviews from select top award winners in each category in upcoming monthly issues starting in April. These interviews will outline each program’s unique qualities that made them a Leadership Excellence Winner.

From the article:

Neena Newberry worked in HR at Deloitte, leading performance management and career planning for 34,000 employees, before launching an executive coaching business. It was during her time at the firm that a former Deloitte partner gave her advice on dealing with a difficult situation.

“Even when you know someone in a higher position of power is saying things that are untrue about your performance, take the high road,” Newberry recalls him saying. “It might be the hardest thing you ever do, but ask them for advice. You will probably surprise them, and start the process of turning them into an ally.”
