Phoenix-Hearted Woman Leadership Retreats

1 to 2 day retreats

Maximum Participants: 10

Who is it for:

  • The woman who wants to lead heart-first with a courage and power rooted deeply in values and purpose.

  • The woman who wants a leadership retreat wholly focused on helping her to lead like a woman.

Goal: To help you stand fully in your power and have the wisdom to know how to direct that power.

Research informs us that for female leaders to thrive they must be connected to meaning, manage their energy and develop themselves in four key leadership capabilities. When women take a more heart-centred approach to their leadership the result is enhanced presence, resilience, confidence and Influence.

We have created a whole new model of leadership retreat for women - one inspired by the wisdom of yoga, the wisdom in our bodies and the wisdom of the co-active coaching model which values connection, intimacy, self-awareness, listening deeply to ourselves, nurturing ourselves, while also listening deeply to and nurturing the best in others.

Women have a different capacity for developing and nurturing their own wisdom and confidence and we've designed our retreats to harness that capacity so women can truly radiate and roar as leaders.

Key Outcomes:

  • Better understand your own strengths, values, emotions and harness them in more powerful ways.

  • Discover new and deeper truths about yourself.

  • Show up more grounded, skillful and authentic in your leadership so you better inspire trust in your team.

  • Develop the foundation that will enhance your confidence.

  • Develop your resilience with concrete practices to replenish your well of physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual energy.

  • Transform your inherent neural wiring into your superpowers so you can live and lead with powerful presence while sidestepping what works against you.

  • Own your space so you can engage and inspire others and transform your vision into legacy.

These retreats are highly unique leadership development retreat specifically designed around what the research tells us allows women to thrive as leaders.
