Jennifer DiMotta talks about her holistic approach to female leadership with Uprisors

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL/ACCESSWIRE/January 28, 2022/ Modern leadership development places a strong emphasis on skills such as emotional intelligence, being results-oriented with a strategic perspective. This leaves little room for a necessary holistic approach. When some of these approaches are performance-driven, leaders can develop a narrow view of outcomes, leading to burnout as they let relationships, physical and mental health suffer without notice. That’s why Jennifer DiMotta saw an incredible opportunity to enhance leadership development by combining leadership, financial insight, and health coaching into one leadership wellness program, Uprisors.

After experiencing first-hand the unhealthy balance of modern leadership programs, Jennifer knew there had to be a better way. She had enjoyed great success as a single mother, working her way through entry-level jobs. She learned what it takes to get promoted and become a senior executive. When Jennifer takes on high-level corporate roles, she not only owns the business, but more importantly, the development of the team. This experience started her love of training leaders as she built a team of over 50 people. When Jennifer saw how bad health affected people, including herself, she made it her mission to change the training paradigm. As a certified health coach, she has brought her strong sense of health and wellness to her leadership coaching practice by developing her Uprisors leadership program for emerging women leaders.

Uprisors offers the skills and lessons women need to understand the finances of their businesses. But they place equal emphasis on understanding why maintaining good health is a vital aspect of being a good leader. “I’ve seen others don’t understand how to read an income statement, develop a strategic plan, or conduct an effective annual review. As such, our successful flagship program, Leadership Wellness in Business, was developed to empower, educate and uplift women at all levels of their careers,” said Jennifer DiMotta, Head of Uprisor.

Like a blessing, Uprisors couldn’t have come at a better time. As the world navigates the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, Uprisors is determined to revolutionize the way businesses think about leadership. People are suffering from anxiety and depression at an alarming rate. COVID-19 has also spiked unhealthy lifestyles. By providing the holistic side that these programs lack, Uprisors provides resources that people desperately lack, enabling them to live fulfilling lives.

Women leaders face many challenges in their lives that lead to a real need to personalize their leadership development. This need requires a focus on health and well-being, confidence and courage, and business and financial acumen. Uprisors recognize that ambitious women are often stigmatized as being too aggressive, not likable enough, or having too high expectations. This results in them becoming underdeveloped as leaders or being forced to figure things out on their own. Uprisors teaches women how to set personal career goals separate from personal life goals. And that it is possible to have both with the right resources to make it happen. It will take hard work, clear communication and expectation with those around you to make it happen. “And know that children will find it inspiring to see their mother succeed in their careers and it could impact their success in life,” said Uprisor leader Jennifer DiMotta.

Uprisors wants women everywhere to know that they can have it all: a career they are proud of, a healthy body, a healthy mind, and healthy relationships. They want to empower women to rise to the top and change the current state of affairs.
