Do you ever feel like your life is out of control? Do you try to think your way out of difficult situations? Excessive analysis, relentless doing, and addictive numbing practices are ways to react to disruption and chaos – but ways that often generate more chaos.
In truth, there is no better grounding point in times of stress than your own heart. This type of surrender can feel uncomfortable: isn’t the mind is a better defender against the unknown? Well, we’re all for brilliant, brainy women, but we believe that our greatest superpower is our capacity to love.
What do you believe in? What is your true desire? What keeps you moving forward on your leadership journey? Whom and what do you love? How can we return to these truths again and again as we face circumstances out of our control?
All that’s really in our control is how we show up and treat others – whether we can ask for help or hug a friend when times are hard. When we demonstrate this vulnerability, others feel liberated to do the same, and the chaos starts to dissipate.
In this Circle Up we will define our heart’s truth – the desires and beliefs that are constant in our lives. This truth will serve as a reminder, an unfaltering sense of self, a tether to reach for when the winds of chaos blow.
Chantal’s mission is to increase women’s leadership across the globe. After earning an MBA from the University of Colorado, Chantal left a career in medical device manufacturing in search of work that would align her dedication to transformative leadership with her passion for living an inspired, impactful life. In September 2012, she founded Emerging Women, a global leadership and media platform that serves over 70,000 women worldwide. Chantal’s ultimate vision is to weave feminine leadership and authenticity into businesses, and to create a world where women have a strong voice in the shaping of our future. Prior to Emerging Women, Chantal served on the executive team as the VP of Sales and Marketing for Sounds True, a multimedia publishing company focused on spirituality, personal growth, and holistic living.
Facilitated by Emerging Women’s founder, Chantal Pierrat, a Circle Up is a live virtual event that explores a new leadership and feminine power theme each month. After Chantal sets the context for the topic, participants will be placed into small groups for sharing and feedback using the unique Emerging Women Power Circle process. Participants are guided to share deeply and support their circle sisters in stepping fully and courageously into living their truth.
