Monthly Guided Peer-Mentoring Group for Women in Leadership
Featured Book: 7 Deadly Sins of Women in Leadership, Overcome Self-Defeating Behavior in Work and Ministry
Facilitated by Wendy Wilson and Melanie Lachcik
(*see below for more on your facilitators)
Explore with other Great Commission women the common ways women hold themselves back as leaders:
Women are making their way into strategic positions of influence and leadership within the church, public, corporate, charity, and voluntary sectors in unprecedented numbers. They are called by God to flourish in these areas. At the same time, women’s entry into the leadership arena has been the catalyst to uncover deep-seated issues in leadership culture. These external and internal challenges are not unique to women, but they tend to hinder women in unique ways:
Overcome limiting self-perception
Develop clear personal vision
Cultivate healthy work/life rhythm
Stop being a people-pleaser
Learn to confront, not collude
Be intentional with your inner circle
Groups are limited to 12 participants (closed when full) to best support both our new relationships and vibrant discussions. Guided by experienced facilitators, we can look forward to a deeper dive on the subject at hand each week as well as benefit from the varied experience of group members.
Because groups are limited in size, we count on group members doing all they can to be present, prepared, and ready to participate each meeting. While we understand that unexpected issues come up, we trust that each participant will honor her group by making this monthly meeting a priority. This way we can all look forward to the most meaningful experience together! Likewise, because this is a peer-mentoring discussion-based learning experience, sessions will not be recorded to support out ability to honestly process our challenges together.
