The aim of LifeWorking™ is to combine the benefits of life coaching and networking. Women thrive in supportive circles and goals driven LifeWorking™ exercises provide a framework for personal growth. The format is highly impactful and highly scalable.
What happens in a LifeWorking™ group?
The group program is based on co-development in small groups of up to 15 women who meet once per month for 2 hours. The meetings are led by certified Group Leaders who hold a safe space and facilitate the LifeWorking™ exercises. Participants check-in on their progress towards their goals and help each other take their careers and lives to the next level.
Who are LifeWorking™ Group Leaders?
All our Group Leaders have a coaching certificate although their role is not to coach but to hold a safe space and facilitate the exercises. Group Leaders model vulnerability helping participants be open about their journeys and get real impact from the group meetings.
What are LifeWorking™ exercises?
LifeWorking™ exercises are bite-sized modules designed to help participants discover their strengths and talents, and also their blind spots or anything that might be holding them back. The exercises cover six core themes: 1) accepting responsibility, 2) daring to dream (big), 3) stepping out of comfort zone, 4) taking small steps, 5) building self belief, and 6) enjoying the journey together.
There are over 50 different exercise modules covering these six themes on topics such as building positive habits, dealing with negativity, fear of criticism or how to build healthy personal boundaries.
The core elements of LifeWorking™ are proven to facilitate change. Regularly writing down your goals and action points, sharing them with others and being held accountable ensures ideas are translated into action.
It is a great way to foster supportive culture at your organisation. The really powerful thing about going through the shared experience of LifeWorking™ is that it impacts directly on women’s positivity and belief in their own potential. Instead of the sense of isolation someone may have felt before, she will be inspired by the stories of other participants and will soon notice that the obstacles you thought were unique to you are universal to most women.
The program is very scalable and a great way to support a large number of women.
What is a “safe space”?
We talk a lot about the importance of providing women a safe space where they can evaluate their ideas without a fear of being judged. This doesn’t imply that your corporate environment wouldn’t be safe or that they would be actively judged.
Fear of judgement arises from historical and societal conditioning where women’s ideas and values have not been appreciated the same way as men’s. The fear is usually subconscious and often unfounded. The only way to lift it is to talk about it, take more personal risks and try something that could be judged. When you step out of your comfort and realise you can do it… you will fly!
When you provide a safe space for this kind of self-exploration for women you are effectively saying, “I support you to be you.”
