Leadership Catalysts: Adaptation in the Age of COVID

An ONLINE Small Group Coaching Series

4 x 90-minutes

3-8 people

$1000 per group + materials + HST

We are beginning to recognize that the pandemic will permanently change us all, in some way or other. Will that change be a positive, intelligent one? In this small group coaching series, we will have an opportunity to learn about some important dimensions of leadership that can be driven by “leadership catalysts.” Leadership catalysts are small but mighty individuals (or very small groups of individuals) who compel their organizations forward in key ways at key times. In this group, we invite you to learn with us on topics that are critical to the "new normal" we will find on the other side of COVID. We'll look at the following four themes together:

  • Finding Balance

  • Becoming a trusted leader 

  • Adopting Growth mindsets for learning

  • Coaching others in volatile times

Workplaces are starving for leaders that are willing to be vulnerable and human, rather than armoured or emotionally distant. Many of us hold high internal value for this deep sense of human leadership...but struggle to get there ourselves. Years of being socialized to keep our exteriors well-crafted makes vulnerable, human leadership elusive. In this small group coaching experience, we will challenge ourselves to grow more comfortable with the emotional experiences that undoubtedly characterize ourselves, our work, and others, leading to the connection and authenticity required for solid, productive working relationships. We'll look at: 

  • What authenticity means...and what it doesn't

  • How to name, unlock and empathize with a wide range of emotions

  • The gifts that are unlocked in groups of people who share emotional connection




Burnout Busting for Helping Professionals

An ONLINE Small Group Coaching Series

4 x 90-minutes

3-8 people

$1000 per group + materials + HST


Health professionals of all stripes are finding themselves in never-ending caregiving roles, leading to a phenomenon of “burnout” that the World Health Organization now recognizes as an occupational hazard for this special group of people[1]. Often managing circumstances well beyond their own control and resources, these professionals pull from within themselves -their creativity, their empathy, their effort and energy- to make up the deficits within “the system.” In this small group coaching series, we’ll take some time to attend to our own internal process, and start to re-discover habits of caring for ourselves and recovering our energy. We’ll look at topics such as:


  • Moral Injury: Releasing Ourselves from Responsibility that Is Not Ours

  • Decision Making When We have No Power

  • Why Self-Care Doesn’t Work…And A Long-term Alternative That Does

In tact teams or new groups both work!
