No More Talk. It’s Time To Act
Lorianne (LA) Glassford
Lorianne (L.A.) Glassford spent her early career conquering retail operations in fashion, sport and home furnishings (in the USA and in Canada) before being part of the founding energy behind some exciting brands.
After a decades-long career in leadership across multiple industries, LA landed an Executive role in what she thought was going to be her career topper with a Global Corporate Real Estate & Development Company.
Then at 58 years old she found herself rethinking her entire outlook on life, flew to Costa Rica and before you knew it, she had launched her business as an ‘entrepreneur’. Her unparalleled advisory expertise focuses on Women in Leadership and stems from her hands-on experience, with significant time spent on both sides of the table – in Corporate AND as an entrepreneur.
This unique combination affords her a diversity of perspective and allows The Glassford Group to provide experiences and results for our 1:1 clients, our businesses, our audiences and the guests of our UNLOCKING HER Retreats for women.
What LA Brings To The Table
For Women in Leadership, for eradicating ageism and for the human experience as the ultimate lens.
Focused on helping businesses build the framework to ensure a diverse perspective & sense of belonging exists in all levels of the organization.
Connecting core values and execution, helping to identify synergistic impact, ensuring sustainable growth for years to come.
Our approach prioritizes relationship building on the basis of honest and equitable respect.
(yes, if you haven’t heard, we have a zero asshole policy)
Imagine Yourself in Our Shoes
… If men really wanted to change things for women, they would and they could right? I mean come on, men are great lobbyists … Men can rally the troops when they want to, they just need to want to and get as angry as we are about the inequality and violence against us. No?
How to Retain Senior Women Leaders
Ageist messages and their intersectionality at the societal level seep into organizational cultures. The end result is that decisions about hiring, retention, and promotion will match who we deem societally as “having value.
Dropping the Mask
When you realize your secret is actually your secret sauce, it changes the game. Leaning into you, dropping the mask and using your voice can be both terrifying and freeing. I know because at 59 I began to focus on what mattered to me and nothing else. We need to share our stories, this is part of mine.
LA in conversation with Patricia A. Muir
‘When a woman listens to herself and begins to take herself seriously for what and who she is, there is none more powerful.’
Stepping Into Our Power
Often times the things that hurt us, those times where we feel cut off at the knees, blindsided are the times that we find our true self, our purpose.
In darkness, in the waves of self doubt, everything became clear.
It’s how I found my voice and stepped into my authentic self.
There is no looking back once you find your path and purpose.
Thank you Lissette Alvarez-Holland and Owning HER Health for providing a safe space for me to be vulnerable, and share my truth.
