The Conscious Leadership Collective for Women in Business

It’s time to elevate yourself - both personally and professionally.

You’re not a beginner anymore - and you’re ready to elevate YOURSELF so that you can elevate your business.


Your next level of growth isn’t in a strategy, course, or program - but rather in expanding the way that you think, experiencing next perspectives, and surrounding yourself with the right people.

It's not about networking. It's about connecting at a deeper level.

Leadership Principles


Self Trust 


Your relationship WITH you is the most important relationship you have. Not trusting yourself can make it difficult to make decisions, trust your instincts, meet your needs, and make the most of opportunities.

If you don’t trust YOU... why will someone else trust you?


Personal Responsibility


Personal responsibility is about taking full accountability for yourself, your thoughts, and your actions.

When you take personal responsibility - you embrace the belief that you have the power and the responsibility to shape the life you desire. 


Self Awareness


Self awareness is about truly knowing yourself - your strengths and weaknesses.

As a leader - your true knowing of yourself can be the difference between success and failure.

True self awareness is when you’re able to differentiate your own beliefs from those of other people.


Self Concept


In identifying your self concept - you’ll find that perception is reality.

If you see yourself as a person that is easily taken advantage of - you’ll be taken advantage of. If you see yourself as someone who always has the BEST luck - you’ll have the best luck.

The sneakiest part of self-concept is that it’s so subconscious that you might not even realize that your self concept doesn’t line up with your goals and desires. 


Emotional Intelligence


Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand and manage your own emotions as well as understand the emotions of those around you.

It’s what creates trust and shows that you are truly present for your people. 

But even more important than seeing and understanding others emotions - it’s really being able to understand your own emotions. 


Growth Mindset


When you have a growth mindset, you are able to easily overcome setbacks and challenges.

You see them as part of the game of business and life - rather than a sign to stop moving towards your goals.

People with a growth mindset are  constantly studying. Studying their craft. Study themselves (think self awareness here). Studying other successful people. A growth mindset is always looking for new information and ideas to help stimulate your own thinking.
