Women, Business, Purpose, & Success MeetupWomen, Business, Purpose, & Success Meetup – Thursday 1/25 8:30-9:30am

We have so many external challenges on a daily and weekly basis, and sometimes we feel like it’s all we can do to keep our heads above water and check off our endless to-do lists. Where can we carve out the time and other resources for ourselves and to start to define our own success?

This meetup gives you the opportunity to slow down and start to think about what your roadblocks are on your path to success. What is holding you back right now? We’ll have the opportunity to brainstorm our challenges, and discuss them with other women in an open, accepting environment. This is the first in a series of workshops designed to help you define what success looks like to you and to reach that goal!

Location: Downtown Bremerton. Details shared with members. Seats are limited.

WHY Leadership Webinar

Thursday November 16th, 1:00-2:00pm Pacific

WHY LeadershipThis free webinar will cover much of the information we offered at the first meeting of this meetup. We’ll be exploring what WHY Leadership is and how embodying the skills can help you become a great leader. It begins with self-development and clarifying your individual why.

This meetup is for leaders, managers, individuals who want to become leaders, and individuals who want to develop their leadership abilities. This is a facilitated leadership consulting group where we will connect with others interested in learning about and implementing holistic leadership. We will be sharing and learning from one another in a supportive environment. WHY Leadership is about tapping into your “why” and your group’s “why” in order to build a cohesive effective group. This approach increases morale, individual investment in the mission, productivity, quality of life and ultimately, your bottom line.

For those members who have attended a meetup in person, there is also a closed Facebook group to offer a place to share your challenges as well as your successes. We can all support each other in our journey to become excellent leaders.


WHY Leadership Meetup of Kitsap

Thursday November 30th, 8:00-9:00am

This is our second meeting. We’ll be exploring the foundations and application of WHY Leadership. The focus for this meetup will be getting clarity on how to infuse your “what” and “how” with your WHY.

We’ll start with a short mindfulness experience to help us get grounded in our purpose (our WHY).

We’ll then review worksheets from Meetup #1 and use the conversation to explore how to use your WHY to inform and drive your how’s & what’s. Also, how to tap your WHY to influence how you communicate with others based on the principles of WHY Leadership. For location information, please RSVP on the WHY Leadership Meetup of Kitsap page.

If you were not able to come to the first meetup, please consider attending our free webinar November 16th at 1:00pm Pacific. We’ll be presenting the material shared during the first meetup including the exercise that will build on during the 2nd meetup.

If you didn’t make the first meetup and would like to get the information we shared, then join our free webinar November 16th.
