Growth Circles

A developmental experience for women, meeting monthly beginning April 20th

Women Scaling Their Leadership

Ongoing, starting 20 April 2022


The Women Scaling their Leadership Growth Circle is an intimate experience for a small group (between 6-10 women at any one point in time), whose particular stories will differ from one another, but who are facing a similar need to lead differently and who want to do that without losing themselves in the process — women who realize that “what got them here, won’t get them there.”

The Circle is for women who have experience managing people but are now being asked to scale their leadership in some new way. This could mean managing more people, managing a larger budget, or simply moving into a position characterized by less direct control and much more uncertainty — where stakeholder relationships are both more important and less clear, where enabling is more important than doing and where “being” is more important than “doing” or “producing.”

We welcome and encourage women from a wide range of industries, geographies, backgrounds — cultural, racial, socioeconomic, academic, sexual orientation, and gender identity.

The Women Leading at Scale Circle will meet for 90 minutes on a monthly basis, via Zoom.  Included in the program will be a one-on-one coaching session after every three sessions.  There will be periodic individual and/or pair work between sessions. We don’t expect more than 10 women at any one time in the Circle, to create an intimate setting and facilitate a safe space for an active discussion.

The sessions will be organized around a light structure to support growth and exploration while also being grounded in participants’ most important individual and collective leadership challenges. Individual coaching sessions will be adapted to each participant’s development needs.

This journey will offer opportunities for participants to make sense of what they currently face and also to be stretched developmentally, all while connecting deeply with other women who are in a similar place on their professional and developmental journey.  This will be, above all, a place where participants can challenge themselves – even be uncomfortable from time to time – in a psychologically safe and nurturing environment.
