“I’d like to lead change for millions and I think I can do it – but not alone” – She Leads Change participant, Jan 2018
If you are a women working to create a positive impact, the world needs you to be your most powerful self, to operate from a place of confidence and abundance. This means that you truly feel that you are worthy of the best of life and have the personal resilience to handle the worst.
What is it?
She Leads Change is a transformative approach to leadership for women driving change and innovation. It allows change-makers like you to better hear your own voice, inform your choices, navigate relationships and engage positively within existing systems. It offers you profound personal shifts through a mixture of structured content, peer learning, co-creation and individualised coaching. Over a four-month curated journey, it provides a safe, nourishing space for reflection, realisation, experimentation and self-actualisation. It is designed to get under the skin of the things that worry you and hold you back, to give you courage to live with purpose, to develop strong bonds that can see you through tough times and to celebrate the wins. Most of all it is envisaged to give you the power of a community of amazing, like-minded women, so you can get on, create maximum impact and be your best self.
Who is it for?
You are a leader. Irrespective of your age, title or role – you know deep inside yourself you have the commitment and capacity to lead profound change. And that change is necessary. People in your life look to you for guidance and direction.
You are open, curious and committed to personal growth. You explore your limits and push your boundaries. You want to bring your most authentic self to the work you love, in a life you want to live. You drive change inside and out.
Yet sometimes you feel small and vulnerable and wonder if you can. You may feel bruised by life and nervous about putting yourself forward. You want to move beyond old patterns holding you back and relationships and narratives that no longer serve you.
You are daunted by possibility and how to better balance and give place to all of life’s competing priorities. You may be at an inflection point in your career – looking for a new role, over-coming a disappointment, receiving a recent promotion, coming back from maternity leave, etc. You’re asking what you want out of life and how to be ‘you’ and still best give back to your community and society.
“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.” – Maya Angelou.
What does it offer?
We’ve seen significant changes in outlook, approach and results in our participants:
“Over a matter of months, my executive presence, ambition and self-belief have transformed! I feel ready for the next challenge and have the tools to succeed”
“She Leads Change goes beyond the professional and into the deep personal – it will help you find and build the foundations within yourself to create the change you want to see in the world, with courage and confidence”
“I’ve benefited from an intensive, magical thought-provoking journey over the past few months. I’ve come out knowing more about myself and loved meeting an incredible like-minded support collective…”
The biggest benefit participants receive, is a new way of thinking that allows them to better manage their internal narratives, diverse personal and professional relationships and operate as confident, courageous leaders within any societal system. This is reinforced through coaching and continued engagement with the wider-community.
Note: This not a course to ‘fix’ you. We want you to know that you are already great – no fixing required! And you are already doing well. This is not to make you someone different; we are not planning on changing you. We plan to work alongside you, with you, to allow you to trust more in yourself and remove anything that you are putting in the way of your best self and desired life. And be able to better ride the waves that life brings your way – buoyed up on self-trust, new ways of thinking and a great network.
How does it work?
You will join a group of women that will meet for fortnightly sessions of 3 hours each, from 5:30pm to 8:30pm. Over the course of 3 hours, we will: check-in, explore our topic through deep collective-dialogue, hear from an expert speaker, reflect and try out new ways of ‘being’. Topics will be tailored to the groups and may include: self-esteem, vulnerability, resilience, balance, etc. In between the sessions, a coach will provide complementary insight and support through a series of 4 30-45 minute conversations. This is further supported by pre-reads which will be distributed ahead of each session for reflection and preparation. It is expected that the maximum time commitment every month, including the face to face session, mentoring and personal journalling, will be about 10-12 hours.
The set-up of the programme is specifically designed to develop self-confidence in action. Our facilitators will curate the group; however, with the principle of growing through doing, the group will take responsibility within the structure to co-create the experience. This involves choosing topics, preparation, open-hearted discussions, deep listening, reflection and co-building. Ultimately, the participants will continue to support each other after the 4 months and become part of the wider She Leads Change Community.
