The QPW Virtual Group Coaching program is the first of its kind - a personal leadership program specifically designed for quieter professional women, available globally, based on the QPW methodology of appreciating fully and adapting purposefully.
By investing in this program you will learn how to:
- Stop being overlooked, under-valued, under-paid or faking it to get ahead
Apply practical tips such as being heard in noisy meetings, promoting yourself while being authentic, handling people who are different to you and managing anxiety and inner critics.
Build a confident presence, leveraging your authentic, quieter, natural strengths.
Become the best version of yourself by accelerating the path to being quietly powerful.
The program consists of 6 x virtual group coaching sessions, a series of videos, articles and worksheets, Facet 5 profiling tool and personal report and self-paced activities over a 16 week period. The annual QPW membership (valued at AU$96) is also included.
The next program cohort is starting in February 2018, with the first virtual group coaching session on 27th February 2018. Virtual coaching sessions will be approximately every 2-3 weeks at 6pm or 7pm Australian Eastern Standard Time. Depending on time changes, UK time will be 8am or 9am, Europe early-mid morning, Perth in Australia mid afternoon, New Zealand 8 or 9pm. We may vary this time depending on the participant locations.

Full Fee: AU$1,320 incl. GST

You can join from anywhere around the world! We will use the Zoom video confereing tool for the virtual group coaching sessions. These sessions will be recorded and shared with all participants so you can catch up if you miss any of the sessions.
Megumi is an author, speaker, facilitator and coach on leadership and culture. Megumi has over 20 years as an internal and external consultant to large corporations including National Australia Bank, ANZ Bank, Roche and Accenture as well as smaller for-profit, government and non-profit organisations.
She started Quietly Powerful Women for two major reasons. First, being a quieter, Japanese female consultant working largely in Australia, she faced challenges through her career and has invested heavily in her personal and professional development over the last 15 years. She wished she had known what she knows earlier so decided to share her lessons with others. Second, she felt there were limitations in the usual leadership and culture work she did. Our beliefs about good leadership is still skewed towards masculine, extrovert qualities. Despite lots of literature about a range of leadership skills and qualities, the people who get promoted into senior positions are still generally of the masculine, extrovert types. Of course, there are exceptions but they are exceptions. We need more balance in leadership qualities and strengthening the more marginalised quiet and feminine qualities is a start.
She is passionate about empowering people and groups of people in the 'outer' to have a voice. Her passion is underpinned by her belief that these quieter and marginalised voices are critical for individuals and organisations to innovate and evolve in a changing, volatile world and for solving the big challenges in the world today.
What participants say about Megumi's work
“The powerful coaching process with Megumi allowed me to bring objectivity to not only how I may be perceived but also how I may perceive others. It assisted me to start accepting the things I cannot change and reflection on the results of my Facet5 personality profiling survey certainly gave me the courage of my conviction to change from a long established role to another one whereby I believe not only myself but the organisation I work for can greatly benefit.” Margaret, Company Secretary
“The program has made a significant difference to me. I learned how to use my quiet strengths at work. I feel more comfortable and confident in unfamiliar environments. I learned how to practice and manage my inner voice and remain calm. I can’t speak highly enough of this course!!” Renee, Business Analyst
