There is something so fascinating about watching a professional ballet company. Movements that would be impossible for you or I are executed flawlessly under the balance, direction and devoted skill of artists who spend endless hours honing their craft. It never fails to leave me wondering how I might be able to take my own performance to a new level.
Because at Women of Worth, a good day at work has the feel of a well choreographed dance.
Prior to meeting with our clients we spend a great deal of time getting to know them. What is it that they hope to learn? What professional challenges are they facing? What goals do they aspire to achieve? As we collect this essential data I get a real sense of my audience as a group. What venue would be beneficial for our gathering? Would a restful natural setting be best for this group? Yes. Let’s have a good view of the outdoors. I start to select the objects that would best suit the personalities of the group. Journals, pens, photos, colours even. Inspirational quotes are chosen with care to match the personalities and goals of my new friends.
We are setting the stage for our work.
Once on site we begin to set up our space, careful to make a well lit circle so that we can all see each other and it’s easy to communicate. We all belong here, we are all welcome here, we are all safe here. Every topic we cover will be something a member of the group has requested we visit. Every decision about our future actions will be co created from within this space.
Recently we had the honour of facilitating with a lovely group of engineers, designers, project managers and Head Office Personnel at John Holland. Although each industry we work with may have different attributes, naturally many of the core concepts remain the same:
Who am I in all of this? Who are we in all of this?
Specifically, what is it that I have to bring to the table? How can I take my performance to the next level?
It is our absolute pleasure to choose each and every aspect of our workshop in precise detail to make everyone feel comfortable and inspired for this journey. Because it is in this choosing that we are communicating that yes, you matter. What you do matters and how you go about it matters. We are modelling that by being true to yourself you’ll find it easier to be open with others. And that a good day at work is a group performance starring a diverse cast of characters. When unified in their vision it’s quite a show!
Together with my dear friend and colleague Christine Mahoney, WOW has found its place in several countries, touching thousands of women in all strata of society.
