The CIYO 3-day retreat is the hub of a personal leadership transformation blending virtual and in-person learning. We begin with an individual call with a faculty guide and preparatory readings. The retreat follows. A follow up executive coaching call will then reinforce insights gained, allowing participants to gauge their progress and consider further support that may be needed to meet identified goals.
The CIYO leadership program engages the whole woman. The program offers women the opportunity to dig deep into who they are today, where they have been and where they are heading. We look at how each woman has navigated her personal and professional life, what her struggles and successes have been. We work with you to identify current challenges, address barriers to forward movement, and cross thresholds to support each woman to develop and achieve her aspirations.
Our groups are kept small to ensure one-on-one conversation, rich dialogue and deep connection with others. Our faculty/participant ratio allows for individualized work along with small group work and the transforming power of the circle.
