Through a unique facilitated process and program design, Women’s Leadership Circles (WLC) empower participants to manifest new possibilities and implement personalized strategies that produce meaningful and sustainable results . To accelerate this work we use the Enneagram to illuminate our unconscious inner world. Our drives and motivations, that form much of how we experience and engage with ourselves and the world around us, are mapped out through the Enneagram. Our journey from constriction to expansion starts by learning about the influence our ego and inner critic have on unconsciously controlling us. As we gain greater self-awareness and skillfulness in loosening the grip of these forces, we begin awakening and living from our greatest strengths and gifts that reside in our more authentic selves.
Methodologies such as mindfulness, circle principles, creative expression, and other approaches congruent with the teachings of the Deep Coaching Institute, are employed to support participants on this journey.
The program’s aim is to enable women to achieve more fulfilling leadership, work, and life experiences. When this happens, organizations reap the rewards that come from these women’s heightened contributions. The ultimate gain is a work environment that is inclusive, innovative and fosters well-being.
