Recent Faves + Free Workshop for You

By October 11, 2015 One Comment

Good Morning!

I’m filled up after a weekend at the Emerging Women conference, where I heard so many inspiring women speak what they know to be true. I’ll be sharing some of my favorite ideas and learnings with you in the weeks to come.

Today I want to share with you a few of my other favorite things I’ve taken in lately, and I also want to invite you to a free, online workshop I’m offering this week.

So first, the recent favorite things I loved so much I simply can’t not share them with you:

On Being podcast interview with anthropologist and wise woman Mary Catherine Bateson. Beautiful. Revolutionary. Healing. Listen to this woman!!

On Being podcast interview with pioneering social psychologist Ellen Langer. Inspiring. Provocative. Validating. Listen to this woman, too!

And, for the teen in your life – especially if that teen is searching, struggling with cliques or body image issues, or simply could love themselves and their lives more, the book FLAWD: How to Stop Hating on Yourself, Others, and the Things That Make You Who You Are by Emily-Anne Rigal, Barnard College student and founder WeStopHate.org.

What Works & Why: A Free Workshop on Supporting Women to Play Bigger from the Inside Out

Today I also want to invite you to a free workshop about the Playing Big model and my upcoming Facilitators Training.

I know many of you are new here, so let me start from the beginning about what this is.

For many years, I coached one brilliant woman after another who was, in one way or another, being held back by fear and self-doubt.

I wanted to live in a world shaped and changed and run by these brilliant women.

I wanted them to feel the joy (and have the success) of living out their brilliance.

And, I knew I was just like them. I was tired of being run by fear and self-doubt, too.

I started to experiment with tools and ideas from psychology, contemplative spiritual traditions, coaching, and business to see what would truly enable these brilliant women to play bigger.

The patterns of what worked to help them were clear, consistent, and, given the conventional ways we think about women’s lives and careers, very surprising.

What I learned became a toolkit, an arc, for personal change and professional expansion. It became the Playing Big model that I teach and write about .

I teach a course called the Playing Big Facilitators Training for women who want to play bigger in their own lives and careers, and help the women they mentor, manage, parent, coach or otherwise serve to do the same.

This Wednesday I’ll be giving a free workshop that can help you get a feel for what the training is like. When you sign up, you can choose to attend live OR receive the recording.

IF you are curious, and think this course may be for you, please sign up to join us for the free workshop HERE!

That’s it!

Thanks, as always, for reading and being on this journey with me.
