Benefit from coaching + dynamic partners

You will participate in five 2-hour group coaching sessions, + a few extras.

You will be in the role of coachee, and at times, coach. You will create clear goals and strategies to reach them, and will be with dynamic, intentional individuals who are also inspired to learn, grow, and thrive. These 10 hours away from your daily work will allow you to reflect and strategize forward, all-the-while getting the support from others who believe in you and are also creating lives that inspire.


Between each of the five sessions, you will participate with co-mentors, who will be at your similar leadership level, as possible. You will be the champions for one another’s efforts and will connect between sessions to share successes, challenges, and goals. These individuals will become lifelong connections.

Having trouble deciding?

Email Julie directly to set up a 15-minute discovery call to see if this is the right path for you:

NOTE: Although many leaders pay out-of-pocket for this experience because they see the value it adds to their lives, several employers are willing to pay for a portion of your development.

NOTE: The group is carefully curated to have exclusive participation. What that means is that we will take care to not place you in a group with your direct or indirect reports to ensure that you feel the freedom to speak openly.
