Within the first 15 minutes of the Women CEOs conference at Eileen Fisher, there was palpable desire for connection and support. As we introduced ourselves and discussed motivation for being there, the group at our table established quickly that while we feel challenged and passionate about running mission-driven enterprises, there can also be a sense from time-to-time that it’s “lonely at the top.”
But it doesn’t need to be.
The sense of loneliness can take wind out of our sails. We don’t need that. Research shows that we’re willing to stretch beyond our capacities over and over again if we feel a sense of support, and that someone’s got our back.
So … let’s make that happen.
Meaningful Organizational Design, Inc. is offering small group coaching groups for Women CEOs running B Corps. Groups will consist of 5 women and meet for 90 minutes twice per month for 3 months.
Commitment: Six meetings – every other week for 3 months. Hopefully groups are stable for one year. Each quarter participants will establish new stretch-goals.
Cost: $500 per quarter (3 months) with the intention that groups will continue for one year.
Times: TUESDAYS: May 28 – August 7 – Every other TUES, 10-11:30 am Pacific / 1-2:30 p.m. Eastern
WEDNESDAY: May 29 – August 8 – Every other WED, 3- 4:30 p.m. Pacific / 6-7:30 p.m. Eastern
Together, we will:
1. Create community,
2. Support one another,
3. Learn from each other,
4. Network with one another, and
5. Learn STOP – OBSERVE – ALIGN – ALLOW, an evidence-based 4-step coaching methodology based on mindfulness and flow theory called Presence Coaching. Presence Coaching has been shown to accelerate growth and development, support the clarification of values and priorities, and enhance well-being. Participants will learn a counter-intuitive approach to goal-attainment, utilizing as a primary practice a conscious deepening of one’s ‘quality of relating’ to life. We will learn and practice being more present to ourselves, others, and our environment. We will practice cultivating a meaningful, purposeful, and rewarding life through deep and generous listening and the capacity for deep acceptance, vitality, and joy.
The purpose is to support women leaders to thrive by integrating both masculine and feminine Ways of Being. Flow theory and analysis will direct us, while Mindfulness and Presence practices allow us to settle deeply in ground of the present moment. It is here we gather valuable wisdom and insight, and here where we discover powerful and sustainable forces within us.
Then, together, we move mountains.
