Formerly Moxie: Developing the Leader Within, we are now
Her New Standard: The playbook for women leaders.
Our next HNS Accelerate: For Women Leaders on the Rise (formerly Moxie Project) launches January 29, 2020!


what we do

Her New Standard elevates the unique value every woman brings to the workplace. We’ve rewritten the playbook to advance women’s leadership, where their unique voices and capabilities create better outcomes, not just for their own careers but for the collective workplace. We care deeply about unleashing potential so women can thrive and impact the world in a meaningful way.

We change behaviors. Our unique method focuses on structured accountability that increases change, ensures measurable results and extends far beyond traditional leadership development.

We create leaders.

who we are

When women ascend to leadership positions, the collective only gets stronger.

We are a team of organizational leaders, PhDs, and leadership consultants with rich, real-life experience. We are passionate and committed about guiding organizations to maximize their female talent so they reach their fullest potential –– crushing that proverbial glass ceiling.

We created Her New Standard to set a new norm for women leaders –– to help them rise up in today’s competitive world and make their mark. We understand organizational systems, cultural dynamics and women. Our work stimulates change that leads to breaking through barriers so women can create their own new standard.
