Navigating Passive-Aggressiveness and Defensiveness

fist-blow-power-wrestling-163431.jpeg

How do you feel when you experience passive-aggressive behavior? Frustrated and confused?
Or when someone says "Don't be so defensive!"?

Do you, like me, ask - What does that even mean? What is happening here? And how can I change it?

We see this behavior pop up and derail communication and constrain growth. But in order to change how we navigate these reactions, we need to understand what is going on. And then practice how we want to do things differently the next time we are dealing with passive-aggressiveness or defensiveness.

Business Insurance 101

business insurance.jpeg

Insurance mistakes invalidate your policy

  • Does your insurance policy states that it covers you “everywhere”?
  • Does your name and not your company’s (or LLC) appear as the insured?
  • Have you added new business locations or services since you last renewed your liability insurance?
  • Does it scare you to even call your insurance company to ask for information for fear of having a higher premium?

This exciting new workshop will cover all the red flags that may invalidate your current policy. But most importantly it will provide vital information about how you can protect your business from the inherent risks:

  • A customer files a lawsuit against you
  • An alleged breach of contract
  • An employee gets injured on the job
  • A natural disaster destroys your property

Money Circle: How to Make a Budget

Money Circle.png

Having a working budget is key to being financially stable. You have to know what is going in and out each month. But creating a budget and sticking to it is not exactly straightforward or easy. Many people simply don't know where to start, and need a little bit of guidance. I want to help you figure out how to make a budget that works for you! So come to Money Circle and together we'll map out budgets that we'll actually stick to.

Bring a list of your expenses and income. It will also be helpful if you have an average of how much you typically spend outside of bills each month. Bonus points: look up the dates that most of your bills are due.

Women Opening Doors for Women (WODW) 2018

women.jpeg

Whether you're a seasoned veteran of WIN or a new member ready to get involved, Women Opening Doors for Women (WODW) is the event for you! WODW brings women of different backgrounds together to learn from each other's experiences, exchange valuable information and advice, and help each other along the road to success.

What is WODW? WODW commemorates the founding of WIN over 29 years ago when a group of women came together around a dining room table to help each other achieve professional success. The group committed to forming WIN to create opportunities for both young and established women to continue meeting, mentoring, and sharing resources with other like-minded women.

WODW consists of two parts: a networking reception with over 200 professional women followed by 20+ simultaneous dinner parties in private homes and businesses throughout DC. These dinners feature lively discussions on topics ranging from achieving success at work to mindful meditation to breaking the glass ceiling.

First, we'll meet at the National Union Building for a reception to honor our Karen Mulhauser Award recipient and our Network of the Year award winner while enjoying dessert and wine. Afterward, we'll break off to attend one of 20+ engaging, thought-provoking, and fun dinner party discussions around the city.

WIN welcomes and encourages male colleagues and friends to attend our networking reception and keynote address, but to celebrate WIN's mission, the dinners are reserved for those who identify as women, femme, or gender non-conforming.

Whether we like it or not, money makes the world go round.

And when ladies have control and confidence over their financial lives, they can go out in the world and kick ass. So let’s gather with some soon-to-be-new-friends in a safe space to get our wallets in order.

This workshop combines woo woo practices (like meditating on our current relationship to money) with down and dirty practical advice (like how much to save for retirement).

During our time together, we’ll go through exercises to:

  • Align our money with our values

  • Determine priorities for our spending

  • Build an emergency fund

  • Manage debt

  • Save for retirement

  • Save for big dreams (like travel or a down payment)

  • Understand different investment vehicles

You’ll leave with a concrete action plan for the steps you'll take immediately after the class, a Money Management 101 workbook, and a community of others to support you on the journey.

The Emotional Labor Union: Fathers & Daughters

fathers & daughters.jpg

“These are the things I want for you — to grow up in a world with no limits on your dreams and no achievements beyond your reach, and to grow into compassionate, committed women who will help build that world.” - Barack Obama

The societal structure in which we live is essentially a mass generalization of the father daughter relationship.

Patriarchy: A system of society or government in which the father or eldest male is head of the family and descent is reckoned through the male line. 

It almost feels like the idolization of the father figure has yet to be challenged by feminism. I dare you to google "Father daughter relationship" and just take a gander at the first five entries. 

That being said father daughter relationships are unique. Dads are seen as kings - someone to be worshipped in popular culture. But I would wager that a lot of us were shaped more by how our fathers let us down than by how they championed us. Whether our relationships with our fathers are good, bad or non-existent, we all have an inextricable connection to our fathers which has shaped us into the women we are today. Let's convene and talk about our relationships with our fathers through a feminist lens.

Discover who you are at your highest and best
Learn why you are here

WHAT MAKES THIS WORKSHOP DIFFERENT?

In today's culture of entrepreneurship and quest for life-work balance, setting goals for the ideal future has become much more commonplace.

In this workshop we will take a different approach, employing the power of coaching to get to the heart of your desires. Together we will discover who you truly are at your core, and get clear on the future you yearn to create. You will learn how to show up in the world as the highest version of yourself and best of all, you will create a passion rich road map to creating the life you want.

How to Get Unblocked

Magic+is+in+you.jpg

When ladies gather in a circle with guided support, we can be heard, supported, and tap into our innermost creativity and power. This workshop is for lady creators of all stripes -- from artists and writers, to folks starting new side hustles or working on research projects -- who want to be inspired and hold each other accountable to turn their latent creative aspirations into a reality.

We'll be using a way of gathering called "Circle of Magic" to help us break through some of our fear by bringing us together with a group of other creators. Circle of Magic is kinda like a book club, but in reverse: instead of reading stuff together, we make things and put them out in the world.

If Circle of Magic were a recipe, it would be…

  • 1 cup accountability
  • 1 cup inspiration
  • 2 cups deep connection with each other
  • 1 cup spiritual flow

This 2 hour workshop will include guided reflection, free writing exercises to help us tune into that little voice inside, and a chance for each person to brainstorm their creative idea with the group. Each person will leave with a hand illustrated guide for creating their own Circle of Magic after the class, as well as action steps for their creative project.

Female Entrepreneur Roadmap: Creating a Tech-enabled Business as a Non-tech...

Female Entrepreneur Roadmap Creating a Tech-enabled Business as a Non-tech....jpg

Having a background in tech (coding, computer science, data analytics) should not determine whether or not a female founder can create a tech or tech-enabled company. It can often be an intimidating process transitioning from idea-stage to creating a viable prototype to reach your first customers.

This roadmap will empower female entrepreneurs to identify DC resources to create a tech product and navigate the entrepreneurship landscape as a non-technical founder.

The goal of this roundtable is to learn major areas of concern for women that want to create a tech business but are unsure of where to start, and to provide them with insights into navigating challenges utilizing the roadmap.

Inviting & Receiving Feedback for Leaders

leaders feedback.jpeg

The last time you received feedback, how did it feel? Frustrating? Unhelpful? Unconstructive?

Would you like the next time to be different?

We talk a lot about how important feedback is to our work and relationships, but we also need to take time to practice and integrate better feedback skills into our work. This workshop is a place to learn how to invite the feedback you need in the way that feels best for you. We will also practice how to receive feedback with grace, and model ways to redirect or ask for clarity when you get it.

By learning how to model inviting and receiving feedback, leaders can gain the feedback they need to grow as leaders, and to lead the growth of their teams, organizations, and businesses.
