A broad cross-section of leaders across multiple industries are opting to be part of this conversation:
We empower women to:
Comprehensive program outline below.
Most leadership development programs are designed to support a very traditional definition of leadership, training the very topics women tend to be naturally drawn to and good at (emotional intelligence, communication, collaboration).
The “messy topics” loaded with fear and often unnatural to women are ignored (such as speaking up despite doubting if what they say matters, going for the promotion despite the fear of not having 100 percent of the role requirements, etc.)
Many of the women’s groups available focus on the personal and/or spiritual realm without professional context or up-levelling. Or, the professional context is offered but the “messy topics” very real to female leaders are often ignored or skimmed over.
The Circles are facilitated by Kristen Buckley, an Executive Coach with over 20 years business experience working with leaders of all levels including executive in roles such as leadership development, technology go-to-market roles, organizational development and entrepreneurialism.
Kristen's superpower is holding a safe space to express the full range of human-ness including fears, pride, unapologetic ambition and everything in between.
Kristen walks her talk doing her ‘inner work’ to navigate life authentically, just like the women in Gutsy Leadership Circles.
Act Now - there are limited spots and they go fast! The last circle sold
out within a month.
Currently, the circles are for women but a waitlist has started for mixed-gender and men-only circles.
Plans underway to provide a platform for male leaders visibly sponsoring women to share their best practices to perpetuate what is working.

Location: Zoom only until COVID settles.
We explore what space you are allowing in your life for your deepest aspirations. Overscheduling and hustling for that which doesn’t serve leaves little room for what does.
Much of the time, we are the biggest impediment to realizing our goals. A safe environment is created so you can get real about the ways you sabotage your success.
You know what it feels like to be fully embodying your most brilliant self, you’ve felt its glimmers before. This is the state of being we will help you cultivate more of (perhaps even become the new norm!)
With clarity about how you get in your own way and what your brilliance feels like, we explore practical tools to ride the exciting (and scary) edge so your power outshines your fear. It takes courage and self-compassion and we guide you through the steps.
Breaking old patterns that relinquish our power to our fears over our brilliance requires space so we can choose what we give power. This requires a special skill of observation without attachment and listening to our intuition.
Self-care is beyond bubble baths. It is a way of being that is mindful of the numerous realms of our energy including physical, mental, spiritual and emotional. You will learn how to replenish each and how they get depleted.
Family demands are cited by Harvard Business Review as one of the 4 biggest obstacles to a female’s career advancement. This is real and we unpack how to advocate your needs and boundaries in both the personal and professional realms.
Timing is ripe to forge a new era redefining what authentic leadership looks like beyond embodying a version attempting to fit within the constraints of a traditional definition of leadership.
