The Collective

A Transformative Group Coaching Experience

12 weeks of:

Radical honesty

Facing your fears

Confidence building

Curating the life you want to live!

What is THE COLLECTIVE?

The Collective is a 12-week transformative group coaching experience that is going to help you live your truest, most radically authentic life!

If you...

  • can't seem to shake off feeling like an imposter at work and in your life

  • struggle to find passion and purpose 

  • find yourself avoiding hard conservations for fear of rejection

  • are unsure how to set healthy boundaries that serve and protect your peace

  • constantly feel like failure is lurking just around the corner

 

then know that you're not alone. I've created this program just for people like you because I've been there and I know how critical a group setting can be to get us out of our heads and into real, transformative action. In fact, it wasn't until I found myself in a group coaching program that I was able to focus on what was really holding me back and see tangible results. Why? Because group programs have built-in accountability and support. Plus, doing things with friends is always more fun than doing things alone!

During this program, here's what you'll experience:

  • 3, 90-minute group coaching calls per month 

  • 1, 30-minute individual coaching call per month

  • Private Facebook group to share your victories, ask questions and support others on this journey with you

  • Unlimited email coaching for when you just have a quick questions

  • 3 FREE laser coaching sessions for those times when you just really need some clarity--quick

  • 1 support kits by mail personally curated by me for your unique needs (no 2 kits are the same!) 

  • Additional resources as needed

Applying to The Collective is an investment in your future self. At the end of June 2020, where will you be and where do you want to be? This is the question you have to consider when deciding what action to take. And remember, inaction is still an action!

Choose to make this investment in yourself--your future you will thank you for it! The program is pay-what-you-can so no more excuses!

The Collective runs from April-June 2020, with our inaugural session taking place on Sunday, April 5th. It is application-based and then by private invite only. I am looking for individuals ready to put in the necessary effort to curate the life they want.

Looking forward to seeing your application soon!

The Collective FAQs

The questions I most frequently get asked about the program. Don't see your question here? Feel free to email me or connect with me on Instagram and I'll get on it!

 

1. What is the structure of the program?
The Collective is a 12-week intensive group coaching program. It is designed to provide both group and one-on-one support to help you curate the life you want and love. You'll do this by meeting with the group for three weeks/month and meeting one-on-one with me, your new coach, once/month. There is also a private Facebook group just for Collective members to share victories, ask questions, and engage with me, your coach, and other members in the group. 

2. What is the structure of the group calls?
Group calls will function as a collaborative learning experience. Each call will have a specific theme/topic that we'll go over. The beginning of the group session will be lecture-style, as I go over the specific theme for that week. The second half of the group session will consist of group discussions, "hot seat" coaching, and q&a. 

3. What is "hot seat" coaching?
"Hot seat" coaching is a lot like laser coaching: a short, intensive coaching session focused on one specific outcome or goal. It's called "hot seat" coaching because of the group format. Essentially, you'll be put in the "hot seat" at least once during the 12-week program on a group call so we can address any hangups or roadblocks you might be having and also to make sure that you are getting adequate support from The Collective. 

4. How can I be sure that I'll be seen and heard in a group setting?
Great question! I've worked diligently to be sure that The Collective remains a small group. My goal is no more than 6 members. By ensuring that the group remains under 10 people, I guarantee that all of your questions and needs will be addressed and met. Additionally, "hot seat" coaching, the one-on-one calls, and the unlimited email coaching give you ample opportunity to make sure that you're getting the most out of the program. 

5. What will the one-on-one calls be like?
This is probably one of my favorite things about the program! While the group calls are mostly pre-designed, the one-on-one calls can be about anything you want them to be. You can use this time to go a bit deeper than the group calls, as a time to grill me with your questions, or as an opportunity to work on a specific goal. One of the members wants to use our one-on-ones as a time to specifically work on career goals--and that's totally fine! YOU set the pace and tone of the one-on-one calls with me. 

6. How much work/time will the program require?
Another great question! Coaching is all about facilitating the growth and potential of my clients. This means that while I will be hard at work facilitating this growth and potential in you, you also will be hard at work implementing and strategizing on your end. This is a mutual relationship and as such will require a mutual commitment. That said, aside from the group and one-on-one calls, you can expect to put in about 2-3 hours each week on homework and implementation. 

7. This all sounds great, but what am I actually walking away with at the end of the program?
I'm glad you asked! Here is a list of results you can expect at the end of the 12 weeks:

  • Clarity on your goals and personal strengths

  • Strategies to make smarter and more consistent action toward your goals

  • Tools to manage your overwhelm and follow your fears

  • A clear roadmap on what your next steps should be and where you want to be in 1, 3, or 5 years

  • Actionable steps to be able to determine where you should focus your attention


8. Why is it pay-what-you-can? Don't you need to make money? And if I don't pay full price, won't you just not invest time in my personal growth?
Absolutely not! Coaching is something that I've been doing for a long time; I love it enough to do it for free if I could! I also take my clients very seriously and am committed to their journey and development. The value of the program is currently at $799, but I decided to make it pay-what-you-can because times are so uncertain right now. Additionally, my goal has always been to serve Black/Brown communities as well as folks in the LGBTQ+ community and I know that a lot of my ideal clients are often marginalized and forced to remain in low-wage employment. This is my way of making sure that the right people are able to access my coaching in a way that values their struggle without being a handout. Just because someone is able to afford the program at the full price doesn't mean they are more committed than someone who can only manage to pay a small percentage of the program's value. 

9. Can I get a refund if I'm unhappy with the results?
Unfortunately not. Just as I take my client's journey and development very seriously, I also ask that clients take their own journey and personal development very seriously. As I mentioned in question #6, this is a mutual relationship that requires work from both of us. I highly recommend that you consult with yourself earnestly before entering into any coaching relationship (with me or another professional) to be sure that you are ready to put in the necessary work to get the outcomes you desire. As your coach, I can only facilitate your journey, you are responsible for making the implementation necessary for the results you seek.
