Maybe you are making millions, or maybe you are just starting your professional life.

Maybe you are a stay-at-home mother or a single, child-free woman.


Maybe you have enormous external accomplishments - or very few.


Maybe you run a large corporation, or maybe you are the receptionist in a small business.

Maybe you are called to make a significant income, or maybe you are intentionally earning and living on less.


HERE’S WHAT DOES MATTERS (from my point of view) - TAKE NOTE


Leadership (and our relationship to it) is at a critical point in our world.


The time has come to understand that leadership has nothing to do with title, position, or perceived authority. The time has come to do the work to shatter the glass ceiling where it really exists.


Inside of us.


Waiting for the world to treat us differently, waiting for a certain title, a certain level of pay or some type of validation from somewhere outside of us is not going to serve us. Waiting for permission to do what is so clearly calling to us doesn’t serve either. It doesn’t serve in our professional lives, in our families, and in our communities.

This program is designed for women to take a deep dive into the territory where the greatest opportunities exist for us in our growth and transformation as leaders: the inner terrain.


This program is for you if:


  • You read this and know it’s no longer ok to keep waiting to strengthen who you are as a leader.

  • You are willing to say goodbye to the story that leadership is dependent on a title or a perceived level of authority given to us by someone outside of us.

  • You are willing to develop a NEW story and step into new practices and ways of being that demonstrates your leadership from the inside out.

Are you:

- a corporate leader?

- a small business owner?

- a leader in your field?

- a creative professional who has more to share?

- a leader in your personal life?

Are you:

  • a mother who hasn't yet owned that you are a leader in your family?

  • volunteering in your community?

  • an aspiring professional who sees themselves becoming a leader?

  • a business owner who sees an opportunity for greater leadership in your work with clients?


Whether you already identify yourself as a leader or are just beginning to, join us. This is a highly experiential program for women in leadership positions and aspiring female leaders everywhere - in corporations, in families, in small businesses, in communities.

Take 10 or 15 minutes to answer the following questions in writing. No need to overthink your answers – just jot down whatever responses come to mind.

• Have I taken the time to define what leadership means to me?


• On a scale of 1-10, how willing am I to say no in my professional and personal life?


• On a scale of 1-10, how willing am I to say yes in my professional and personal life if it’s related to something I am not completely confident in or don’t know if I can “do”?


• Do I at times downplay my leadership, and/or my calling to lead, as a way to make others more comfortable?


• Is serving as a leader something I thought about as a child or teenager?  


• Do I have female leadership in my professional or personal life right now that inspires me?

• Do I cultivate women with more experience than I have as mentors or coaches in my life?


• To what extent is my life a place of expansion, freedom, and growth?


• Do I identify myself as a leader in my life regardless of title or position?


• As a leader is it acceptable to make mistakes or not have answers?


• How often do I make it ok when someone is doing or saying something that doesn't work for me?


• How willing am I to negotiate on my own behalf (e.g., for more money, responsibility, flexibility)?


• Do I consider women who are choosing to be home with children leaders?


• Can I be a leader in my life regardless of whether I have children or make significant money?

• On a scale of 1-10, how willing am I to share feedback with someone who may experience it as challenging?


• How often do I present new ideas and strategies in my professional life or in my marriage?


• How often am I jealous or uncomfortable when other women are advancing in their professional or personal lives?


• Do I regularly find myself frustrated, angry, upset or resentful in my professional life/with others in my work?  What situations tend to trigger this?


• Do I champion other women and encourage them in their leadership?


• On a scale of 1-10, how would I rate myself as an effective, creative, inspiring leader?


Some of your answers may be empowering. Some may be upsetting. Some may leave you feeling ambivalent. All of this is good news... if you see yourself as willing to grow in your capacity to lead.

This day will provide female leaders with the opportunity to:


• Slow Down and Take Stock


Many women are moving so fast, they rarely take the time to take a deep breath and evaluate how they are doing as leaders.


This one-day intensive provides an opportunity for participants to reflect deeply on their own leadership, dissolve the inner barriers in the way of standing up in greater leadership, and develop and practice a new narrative for what being a leader means to them.


• Identify Opportunities


What if your most challenging life experiences can hold the keys for your greatest transformation as a leader?

• Strengthen


This is a hands-on practical experience – providing an opportunity to learn and practice new skills to develop to greater levels of Self-Mastery in Leadership.


Build new and more effective communication skills. Let go of self-criticism and learn new, more effective ways of relating to yourself and others in your leadership.


Learn how to play a bigger professional and personal game while honoring what’s authentic for you.


Develop the capacity to risk in ways that bring joy and expand your professional possibilities.


Deepen in your experience of fulfillment as a leader.

What if there were 3 qualities you could cultivate that would immediately strengthen your ability to lead (whether you lead in an office or at home) with the strength of heart and vision?

• Unleash


Participants will have the opportunity to discover unused capacity and to free up energy that has been trapped in patterns and ways of being that no longer serve you as a leader.


Return to your life with more of your Authentic Power available and an updated definition of leadership that can guide you.


Continue to connect with other participants as you practice new skills and new ways of being.


The day provides significant opportunities for participants to receive coaching, to connect with peers, and to gain insights and skills that will last a lifetime.

My Commitment to You:


• Co-creating a safe environment where participants can do deep, meaningful work.


• 100% commitment to your growth – on all levels.


• Show where you may be backing away from your strength and magnificence.


• Sharing the truth as I see it – blind spots, areas of opportunity, and gifts.


• Sharing ALL of my learnings, mistakes, resources, ideas, & experience as a female leader, as a professional executive coach, as a mother, a daughter, a wife, and all-around champion of women.



• Attendance for the entire in-person day – full participation during specified hours of the workshop.


• Willingness to practice speaking your truth and sharing yourself in the sacred and safe space of the workshop.


• No attachment to “looking good.”


• Willingness to be uncomfortable, to have fun, to stretch, and to grow.


Join us for this highly experiential one-day workshop for women in leadership positions and aspiring female leaders.
