Interesting Fact About Me.
Dear E – Our next session of the Playing Big Facilitators Training is coming up, and today I want to tell you why I teach this program, and how it came to be.Eleven years ago, I had just begun a small coaching practice. I was still working my full-time job at a large philanthropic foundation, but in the evenings and on the weekends, I would see a few clients – mostly friends of friends or colleagues.One of my first clients was a young woman who had a mid-level position inside a large social sector organization, working with their donors.As I got to know her through our coaching work together, I grew more and more impressed. She had fabulous ideas for her organization and her field. She spent her free time reading all the industry publications and new books out that related to her work, so she had an incredible handle on the latest cutting edge thinking for her work. She had important critiques to share about how things were currently operating in her organization.She was also hard-working and she cared so much about doing right by the people she worked with, and the people her organization served.And yet, none of this was getting out into the world – to be seen, recognized, or to make its impact. She second-guessed herself when it came time to share her suggestions within her organization. She kept wanting to write up her ideas and publish something, but the thought also scared her, so she wasn't making time for writing.All that brilliance and potential inside of her wasn't getting out, expressed, into the world.That so pained me, and it particularly pained me because she wasn't the only woman I knew in this very situation. In fact, most of my clients (not to mention my friends) were women like her – brilliant, ethical, diligent – the kind of people who we absolutely need shaping our world. But they weren't bringing their ideas and creations forward.I was in my own struggle personally with the very same thing – grappling with self-doubt and fear, and quite decidedly not taking the leap into the creative and entrepreneurial career I really wanted.So, I began to make this the focus of my work, and my coaching practice became a kind of laboratory to discover: what really made the biggest difference in helping women play bigger? What tools and ideas were transformative?Over the months and then years, I learned the answer to these questions. And it turned out that something very different from the traditional coaching approach, or career development roadmap, was needed.It turned out there were essential stepping stones on that road for women who wanted to play bigger on their own terms, to play bigger in the deepest sense. Those stepping stones included: a way of dealing with the inner critic, tools for working through fears, a whole new approach to coping with criticism and even unhooking from praise.The essential stepping stones also included training in communication and negotiation, and building the muscle of "leaping" – taking imperfect, experimental action.From these stepping stones I began to take my clients through a journey, and that journey became the arc of the Playing Big leadership program for women, our global, online program now eleven years running.Several years into teaching that program, I started to hear from more and more women who wanted to use the powerful Playing Big model in their own work with other women. Some were coaches, some wellness professionals. Many taught or advised students in academic institutions. Others were managers and mentors. They all felt called to work with women around issues of voice, empowerment and leadership.I created the Playing Big Facilitators Training for these women and those like them.My team and I are so proud of the rave reviews the Facilitators Training gets from participants each session. We are especially proud that most women find us through a friend or colleague; they see the positive changes in a woman they know – the impact of the Playing Big model before their eyes – and they say, I want that!If you want to play bigger in going for the career or life that is calling to you, and help other women do the same, this is the course for you. If you would like to help your female mentees, clients, team members or students no longer be so burdened by self-doubt, this course is for you. If you long for a more clear and effective model for supporting the women you work with so they can achieve extraordinary things, this course is for you. It will help you create the career you desire, launch your ideas and projects into the world (in a strategic, smart way), move past self-doubt and fear – and so much more.So now I can look back to that first client – and yes, she is now writing, publishing, and getting her unique voice out into the world – and I thank her for the spark she ignited in me. It's been an absolute honor to watch her and so many other women around the world step into their playing bigger.In the next few emails, I'll be sharing in depth about our curriculum and format – can't wait to tell you more!

"Elizabeth is caring, empathetic and insightful. With her help, I learned that I have a tendency to base my self-worth on what I know rather than on who I am. This was an eye-opening discovery for me. Now that I see it, I am in a position to better manage it. Elizabeth has been an excellent coach for me. I've been able to reach the life balance I was seeking and I feel confident that I will be able to sustain that balance as I address a number of near-term challenges."

"I think my greatest accomplishment is the fact that I finally found my sense of self. I feel so secure and self-assured now, and my budding growth mindset is so useful in maintaining that in every aspect of my daily life: work, personal relationships, even how I approach and plan out my day. Elizabeth’s coaching was the foundation of my progress. It gave me the opportunity, the platform and the space to look at myself in a way I had never thought (or even known) to look before. The support and encouragement I received from Elizabeth were paramount when I was facing questions about my needs and values, my mindset, my version of success, and a few others, because it bolstered my belief in my ability and desire to know the answers. I feel empowered by my ever-growing self-awareness, and through that I have been able to answer questions about myself and my future that were previously too daunting to even ask. I also feel immensely satisfied with my situation in life. Every week my eyes were opened to new things, which made me eager to engage, which led to positive steps towards achieving my goals."
