Personal Development

Personal Development Groups

We believe the most effective environment for leaders to experience transformational growth is in a small group of peers who align with HEART-Level leadership values.

Who It's For

Up to 12 successful executives (men, women, and coed groups) committed to growing their leadership. Groups are curated around common ground and relatability so that the collective wisdom in the room serves every member in significant ways.

The Value

Rich, applicable insights, expanded leadership abilities, deeper relationships, and accountability. An increasing capacity to be authentic and vulnerable.

The Format

Up to 12 participants meet for 2½ hours monthly in a facilitated small group setting.

What It Is

Facilitated by a skilled coach, Personal Development Groups are offered to 12 mature and successful executives who are committed to creating powerful, positive change in their ability and capacity to lead. Powerful and thought-provoking content in safe, confidential spaces create the ideal conditions for self-reflection, awareness and transformation.

We currently offer three types of Personal Development groups:

Women’s Groups

Women play a vital role in shaping the future of business. Women in leadership roles understand that meaningful relationships with other female executives are instrumental to their professional and personal success.

As a woman, you are empowered when you find your voice, learn to preserve time for self-care and find the balance needed to give yourself fully to the people and priorities that matter to you. When you become aware of patterns and factors that limit you, you expand your capacity and fulfillment as a leader. The insight gained through peers is powerful, elevating the experience and improving the outcomes for each member of the group.

Men’s Groups

There are some societal pressures to which only other men in leadership roles can relate. Yet many men avoid difficult conversations or sharing their challenges with others. Men often experience a profound sense of responsibility to themselves and others and the pressure to perform is ever-present and real. Without a community of peers, men tend to feel isolated and overwhelmed.

As a man, your load is lightened when you give voice to your thoughts and your feelings. By connecting with other men and sharing your challenges and successes in a safe environment, you expand your leadership capacity to handle the tough stuff of life. Allowing your peers to know the real you unlocks a kind of freedom that helps the entire group rise to new levels of leadership.

Coed Groups

As men and women, we often bring different perspectives and ways of thinking to the way we make decisions and interact with others. Bringing awareness to these dynamics can improve our relationships in every area of life by exposing us to brand new ways of thinking. As Mark Twain once said, “It ain’t what we don’t know that gets us in trouble, it’s what we know for sure that just ain’t so.”

By connecting with both men and women and sharing your challenges and successes in a safe environment, you can improve your ability to understand and be understood in the significant relationships you have with the opposite sex. Rather than focusing on these differences, we allow them to emerge and notice them while helping one another grow as leaders capable of successfully navigate our relationships, careers, and lives.
