Does leadership

ever feel like this?

Or maybe this?

What if leadership could

be like this instead?

There's a different
way to do this.

Leadership can be lonely... it doesn't have to be. Each year, I hold space for one mastermind team of eight exceptional, passionate, visionary leaders. We will sustain you, celebrate your wins, and fail forward with you to create the future you've always dreamed of. One leader put it this way:

 

“I want an authentic, deep, spiritual community, where I really feel heard and seen. I want to be with other global minded change makers. I want open ended inquiry and support on my biggest challenges and wishes, in a group full of appreciation and affirmation.”

If that's what you are looking for, read on...

Nuts and Bolts

This curated group of four to eight experienced leaders will meet for an hour on Zoom every other week for six months. The first few sessions will be spent clarifying our purpose, goals, vision, and what's getting in the way. After that, the bulk of the time will be devoted to learning from one another's collective wisdom.

What's collective wisdom? Glad you asked!

Each session begins with a brief centering practice to welcome you into the space. Then, one by one, we'll check in and share whatever wish or challenge is most alive right now, and whether or not you want the group’s support on it. (Sometimes, sharing it aloud and feeling heard is enough.) Those of us who want support would receive wisdom from one another. There’s hundreds of years of professional and personal experience in the room. What couldn’t we solve if we simply put our brilliant minds together?

That’s collective wisdom. That's the heart and soul of this mastermind.
 

By participating you will gain:

  • VISION: Live into your purpose and calling. Clarify your values. Make progress towards the professional goals that matter most to you.

  • SKILLS: Learn the skills required for exceptional servant leadership such as navigating risk, uncertainty, change, difficult conversations, and conflict.

  • STRATEGY: Learn to align your goals with strategy and action so that they become reality. Identify and harness the greatest strengths of everyone on your team so that your organization can do shining, impossible things.

  • CONFIDENCE: Overcome the inner critics and monsters that stand in your way. Find your voice so that you can inspire and motivate your team.

  • CAPACITY: You can't pour from an empty cup. Create healthy boundaries. Develop stress resilience. Manage your energy, not your time.

  • SUPPORT: With a mastermind group at your back, leadership doesn't have to feel lonely. If you've ever felt like you have to always be brave, positive, responsible, and strong for everyone else, but there's nobody there for you... you've come to the right place. Here, you will be valued, seen, supported, and embraced for the messy miracle of a human you are. Better yet, you'll have a think tank and cheerleading squad to propel you forward.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this a group or individual program?

This is a curated, small group program for up to eight exceptional leaders. Those enrolled in Collective Wisdom can add on six individual coaching sessions to be used within the year for a rate well below what I charge my one-on-one clients.

 

Where and when do you meet?

We meet on Zoom 1 hour per week, twice per month, for a total of 6 months. Since everyone is a busy leader, our meeting times will be determined based on the schedules of those selected to be in the group. Typically, meeting times will be early morning or late afternoon Pacific Time so the majority of the work day is free to support your organization and your team.

What happens during each group call?

Think of it as your very own think tank of powerful leaders. We'll begin with a centering practice and brief check in. Then for those individuals that request support that week, the collective wisdom in the group will come to your aid. If there's an obvious theme across individuals (e.g. crushing workloads, personnel conflict, clarifying a vision), Irene will facilitate a group discussion to share ideas and brainstorm solutions. Always, the goal is to help one another overcome obstacles, grow ourselves as leaders, support our teams, and build our dreams.

Is there any structured content?

The first few sessions are more structured in order to create a container for the group. We will get to know one another, refine our values, set goals, and explore the obstacles in our way.

The last session contains a celebratory surprise.

In addition, every member of Synergy gets free access to Leadership Boot Camp, an online course with 20 minutes of video content that drops into your email every Monday. There, you will learn the leadership skills that most admin programs don't teach you: survival skills like how to manage your overflowing to do lists and email inboxes, and advanced training to nourish your mind, body, and soul.

When does it start?

The official launch is estimated to be mid-August, 2022 and no later than September 1. If the group is still being curated, receive 1 hour bonus sessions every other week until the group formally begins.

Do I have to attend every session?

We're all busy leaders, and things will come up that make it impossible to attend. We get it. All sessions will be recorded and made available to watch later. However, the power of a mastermind is in the collective. The expectation is that you will give just as much as you get, maybe more. We will make every effort to schedule meetings for times that are convenient for you. In return, please hold our meeting times sacred to the best of your ability and be fully present and engaged while you are there.

Is there support between meetings?

Absolutely! You will have access to Irene and the mastermind group via email, text, and/or phone in between meetings. We will have a folder in Google Drive to share resources.

How much does it cost?

The six month program costs $3,000, with payment plans available. Add on six individual coaching sessions to be used anytime in the next 12 months for an additional $3,000. If the cost is prohibitive but you are certain this is what you need as a leader right now, please apply. Let's put our brains together, get creative, and explore the possibilities.

Hell yes! How do I join?
