Next-Level Leaders Seek to Level Up

Have you ever had an experience of profound realization? An ah-ha moment that changed everything?  This program is designed to create them.

Weaving knowledge and real-world experience develops wisdom. When we layer the knowledge and experience together in this way, Wisdom blooms... again and again. 

The resultant change in perspective and personal growth leads to an increase in capacity and overall resilience. As the space to respond grows, so does the awareness of additional choices we never noticed before. We experience this as a Level Up.  

The concepts, conversation, and self-discovery spiral up. So, no matter what level you are at now...be prepared to Level Up again!

Is this the program for you?

When two or more of these statements seem familiar to you, then it's time to carefully consider this program. Matching your needs is essential to a high-value program.

  • People see me as more of a leader than I do

  • I am frustrated when I hit overwhelm or exhaustion before I am finished implementing

  • I have been following gurus but their wisdom is maddeningly slow to unfold in my reality

  • I used to be so good at setting my feelings aside to focus, now my emotions are showing up inconveniently

  • I have come to the conclusion that managing people and leading them are two very different things

  • I lead well in small groups and now I want to grow the group and seem to be struggling

  • I get now that 'knowing' isn't enough and I am ready for real tools and skills to create a real difference in my life

Hear from some of our graduates...

“This program has opened my mind incredibly. I love that the modules are just a few minutes long and Karen does a great job breaking it down in a way that is easily understandable. It is the perfect blend of online learning and in-person training. The 2-day workshop actually takes the material that we learned ahead of time, builds upon it, and provides the opportunity to implement and experiment with it. I highly recommend this program.”
