Women and Cancer - Focus Group Findings

Women in our focus group unanimously agreed that the cancer experience has a major impact on our perception of who we are and how we fit in both our personal and professional lives.

Conversations with women business owners and executives with cancer validate that we experience the typical challenges related to financial well-being, personal and professional relationships, and impact of work on our health with greater intensity than the general population. 

We experience debilitating challenges and fears related to confidentiality, status, career momentum, motivation, desire, enthusiasm, confidence, and self-doubt (to name a few). Our challenges and fears are emotionally charged.

The THRIVE Plan coaching program addresses the emotional stages and changing support needs that affect the perception of contribution, value, and meaning in the woman's personal and professional lives.

Optimal time to engage in the program

Based on multi-stakeholder research, the optimal time to engage in the Thrive Plan coaching program is during the woman's treatment phase to optimize preparation and readiness to return to work.

"It has been such a rewarding experience, working with Patricia upon my return to work.  After my cancer treatments, my mind was confused and I found it difficult to process information.  I knew something had to change before my return to a very busy work schedule.  

With great compassion and guidance, Patricia helped me regain my self-confidence, continue with my self-care, and integrate the changes I wanted to make to create a better balance in my life.  Many of the very practical solutions that she shared with me helped create clarity of mind and allowed me to make sound decisions.

Patricia’s support has made this new chapter in my life more fulfilling, has given me clear direction and has helped me create new standards for my life" — Marte Belisle

 

About the Program

The Thrive Plan coaching program is based on the five realms of emotional intelligence to support women entrepreneurs, executives, and professionals returning to work during or after treatment for cancer. The program provides women with tools and enhanced skills to effectively manage requirements and emotional stages and make their return-to-work experience positive, productive, and rewarding.

The EQ-i 2.0 assessment and a private confidential debriefing is provided prior to beginning the program. The assessment report is used as a tool to focus on areas that will drive effectiveness in sustainable performance upon return to work and accelerated progress toward rejuvenated peak performance.

We will help you develop a business case for submitting to the employer for professional development benefits or to the insurance company and 3rd party case management company to qualify for a claim on disability benefits.
