Women’s Leadership Community

Our Intention:

It’s in group coaching that we gain insights and contribute to each other’s greater leadership and business mastery. It’s a community in the best sense of the word.

Leading in business can be challenging and inspiring.  At the same time, managing a team and keeping yourself vital can be exhausting. Do you still find yourself facing perplexing circumstances such as:

  • You have received critical feedback about your leadership and want to improve.

  • You are being groomed for a higher level leadership position, and want to boost your probability of success.
  • You were overlooked for a promotion and want to improve your chances next time.

  • You have a habit you to want to change, but don’t know how.
  • You know you have to change to grow your business and your people, and you don’t know where to start.

  • You want to improve the leadership of a daughter to take over your company. Why not bring her with you?

Research tells us that women in business do not have as many sponsors and mentors as they need to move up, they often feel unworthy of the goals they have already achieved, and overwhelmed by all the demands from their personal and professional lives.


“Leadership improvement is about taking small steps forward and evolving just a bit each day.  Think evolution, not revolution.  Anyone can change one behavior a month, or eliminate one mistake, and suddenly you can be an overnight success.”

    -Darryl Rosen

What Women Are Saying

“I was not making full requests or offers and was wondering why I wasn’t getting results. Now I know.”

“I found specific ways to empower myself. I’m no longer waiting  and hoping or blaming.”

“I’ve noticed my Hidden Fear when it comes up and that diminishes its power. It makes it a story instead of truth or fact.”

“I participated in the Women's Leadership Community and found it to be the best leadership series I've ever attended.”

– Business Owner

"I want you to know how amazing this program has been in my life. The seeds you have planted, the insights I have learned, have literally changed my life."

– Developer and Partner in Business

"I pulled out all of my leadership stuff the other day as I wanted to re-read so many things, specifically what I wrote on the morning you had us write in our journals the 'If I was brave, I would ______.' My word was 'speak.' I joke that I haven't shut up since and it feels great! It was incredible to read it again and I realized so very much how that 5 minutes of writing changed the projection of my life. The whole course did in fact. I gained strength and focus both professionally and personally in that room with you and those amazing women."

"I've been to quite a few leadership workshops over the years and went into the Women's Leadership Community thinking I had a pretty good idea of my strengths and needs for growth. Ris had an amazing way of allowing me to see how to apply my gifts in ways that really tapped into my passions. This program created a safe space to learn and I found the connections with this wonderful group of women to be one of my favorite parts of the experience."


How long does it take to see results?
You will see results immediately because each session offers insights, practices, and applications.  What’s great about the results is that you’ll build on them each month, enhancing your understanding and knowledge and mastery of their application. The scheduled repetition of a monthly meeting which reinforces prior learning, guarantees the sustainability of all the lessons learned.
I don’t have a lot of time to spend. Is there much homework?
We know how busy business leaders can be, so we have designed the Women’s Leadership Community to be respectful of that.  In addition to the 6.5 hours you will spend in each monthly session, there is a 90-minute Pair Partner Meeting between each monthly session to discuss the brief homework assignment.  Past participants have told us their monthly Pair Partner Meetings are one of their favorite aspects of our program. In these meetings, they enjoy discussing applications, learning more about each member of the community because their partner changes each month, and keep the leadership learning alive in between sessions.
Can I pay in installments or is the total Package Fee due up front?
We prefer payment upfront.  Payment plans are available upon request, and include an additional processing fee.

  • What has been the impact on your leadership?
  • How are you different today than you were nine months ago?
  • What are the top three practices you are going to take on to sustain the development of your leadership?
  • Any concept, practice, or skill that you would like to discuss for more mastery?

Then we create a plan together for how to best move forward in your leadership effectiveness.
