Program format:

Leadership Within is designed as a hybrid program. The first 45 minutes will be led as a workshop. Each week a practice, quality and/or skill associated with Leadership Development will be introduced in a manner that is both experiential and meaningful on a conceptual level.Hands In Circle

The second 45 minutes will transition into a coaching group. Here I step back and lead from behind. Participants come to the forefront to share in a meaningful exchange of thoughts, ideas and feelings associated with the topic introduced for that week.

One of the greatest impacts of group coaching is the opportunity to harvest the collective wisdom of the group. Learning is enhanced because there is so much opportunity to tap into multiple perspectives of various participants. We all have the tendency to see things through our own limited perspective and within a group—as each person is coached and shares from their own experience—learning expands exponentially.

It is important for participants to understand that there will be no pressure to engage in any exercises or conversations if one chooses not to. Every participant will be fully respected and honored for their chosen level of involvement. Comfort, safety, confidentiality and fun is paramount to the success of this program.
