professional & personal leadership program for women

Coming Into Your Own (CIYO) is a worldwide professional and personal leadership program for women. Some participants call it the most transformative leadership immersion of the past decade. Others found their purpose and created their business after attending.  A business based on their very own values and vision in alignment with a deep understanding what is genuinely needed in their world.

These retreats not only offer you the opportunity to slow down and recharge but also time for reflection and to evaluate what you truly would wish the next chapter in your career and/or life to be like. You will be sharing this experience in an empowering circle, with other women who have the desire to live their life fully from within and to unfold their true potential.

The CIYO is just for you. It enables you to pause, take a deep breath and bring your unique spark of revitalized feminine energy into the world.

Coming Into Your Own:  a source of true wisdom

When Otto Scharmer was doing his research before he wrote his inspiring book Theory U  he spent some time with a circle of wise women. In chapter ten of his book he describes how he owes them his understanding on the collective dimensions and what it takes to cultivate a collective hosting space where true transformation can happen. Wise women such as Barbara Cecil and Beth Jandernoa are the founders of the Coming Into Your Own Feminine Leadership program.  My two CIYO mentors and friends Dorian Baroni and Isabelle Pujol and others brought it to Europe.

I am most happy to have joined them on this journey six years ago as a European CIYO Faculty member.
