Hi – I’m Gwen Bortner, and I’m a speaker, facilitator, and coach/consultant. My goal is to empower women leaders, and to work with women to improve their leadership skills and help them boost their confidence so they can step into new leadership roles or excel in their current positions. I do this by providing workshops, training sessions, consulting packages, and retreats for individuals & groups of all sizes.
I believe in abundance — professionally and personally. As such, I always strive to share as much knowledge and experience as I possess. I know from experience that when my students, audience, and clients are successful, I am successful as well. A rising tide raises all boats! I have worked with leaders for years, both in personal and professional capacities, and I am here to bring that abundance of knowledge to work for you.

Leadership can be a lonely job – oftentimes you’re standing alone, trying to navigate rough waters. Tough decisions sometimes have to be made, and you don’t always get to be the “good guy.” But if you’ve done your job and truly listened to those you lead, you should be able to stand confidently, knowing that […]
Anyone who has ever led knows that leadership isn’t all sunshine and roses. It’s natural to want to complain, and indeed you probably should have a safe place to vent your frustrations once in a while. But if you’re spending all your time as a leader complaining, then you’re not spending it in your most […]
There’s a definite learning curve associated with taking on a leadership position. If you’re in that type of position and you feel you’re not quite keeping up, it might help if you took the time to educate yourself a bit.
