**NEW WOMEN’S GROUP FORMING** Personal Development Forum: Guided by a skilled facilitator, Professional Development Forum (PDF) creates unparalleled opportunities for leaders to make powerful, positive change in their ability and capacity to lead. Participants will make challenging and thought-provoking inquiries in a safe, confidential environment creates the ideal conditions for self-reflection, awareness, and transformation.

Strategic Connections: Our place for business leaders in Colorado to connect and grow with each other. We do this by HEART-level exercises and activities and promoting genuine, authentic relationships. Our members explore how to deepen their servant leadership, as well as advance their own business and career goals. Members help fill targets and really lean on each other for guidance and support.

Thrive: Thrive is a space where we, as entrepreneurs, can bring the situations that we are struggling with most of all, and have our team partners who are also entrepreneurs, help us peel back the negative emotions and uncover the underlying issues that we need to solve whether those issues are showing up within or outside our workplaces.
