“For me it's a place to try on for size and get support around taking a leap to the next step, or being more authentic in the way I work and lead my team. It is about showing up in your authentic self with a group of people who have ambitions to play bigger – whatever that means to them.”

Join a Power Circle and get connected.

Your Power Circle is a safe place to try on ideas, process challenges – and get real. Through a unique ethos of authenticity and compassion, the Power Circle will strengthen your feminine superpowers of receptivity, intuition and heart. Sharing your story with others validates your experience as a woman leader in the modern world. Surrounding yourself with brilliant women will expand the boundaries of your vision and give you valuable business insights. Be witnessed by like-minded women committed to your success and fulfillment, and experience true confidence and exponential growth.

What is a Power Circle?

Power Circles are facilitated groups of 6–7 women dedicated to growing their capacity for leadership, consciousness, and authenticity.

Power Circles support the inner and outer work of being a leader. That includes and reaches beyond goal setting, accountability and financial targets. The unique EW Power Circle practices, content and facilitated process guide participants in holding vision, witnessing and reflecting.

Women who join Power Circles are self-aware and successful, and come from diverse ages, backgrounds and businesses. Some women are starting and growing businesses, some are redefining their roles and impact as corporate leaders, and others are dreaming and developing new possibilities for us all.

The Power Circle Experience

This is a six-month deep dive with monthly transformational themes. Our facilitated and proprietary peer mentoring process fosters an atmosphere of authenticity and vulnerability that catalyzes real change. The curriculum includes monthly practices and content, and guided connections with check-in partners between meetings. Access to content and connections are made easy with our dedicated app to connect, learn and track progress.

Six Transformational Themes

  1. 1

    The Power of Story

    Narrative defines the past and maps out the future. As leaders, entrepreneurs, and women going for it, skillful storytelling will help you rally the team behind a vision, win clients and woo investors.

  2. 2

    Getting Real: Desires, Goals & Numbers

    “Making it” is no longer just about getting the corner office, it means doing work that matters. Together we will share current pictures of our businesses, identify desires, design our vision of success, and create 1-year goals and strategy.”

  3. 3

    Playing Big: What's in Your Way?

    Discover how to recognize and transform limiting beliefs and behaviors. Increase your overall capacity for risk while drawing power from the feminine strength of vulnerability.

  4. 4

    Your Big, Bold Vision

    Through a guided experience, you will fully embody the big, bold vision of your life 10 years from now. Journal prompts will help you capture key insights and ahas. Previous Power Circle participants have called this exercise life‑changing.

  5. 5

    The Practice of Trust

    Reconnect with your intuition. Lead with passion and confidence instead of anxiety and rationalization. Discern between real fear and old scripts to recognize risks worth taking.

  6. 6

    Connection for Impact

    Create the relationships that make things happen. Reach outside your comfort zones into new networks – knowing that your Power Circle is behind you every step of the way.

Four steps to get started with your Power Circle

Register

You are on fire and ready to catalyze change in your life. All you need to do is register and let us know more about you so we can connect you to your people.

Match

Power Circles are highly curated. Even within the meta-collective of Emerging Women, there are tribes within tribes. We strive to create diverse circles of power women who represent multiple viewpoints.

Meet

Power Circles are led by Emerging Women trained facilitators so all you have to do is show up – phew!

Connect

Now the magic begins. Circles meet virtually, though in cases where we have many registrants in one city, we may create in-person groups.

What my Power Circle did for me

“I now know and am experiencing, that I can be just as, and even more successful by keeping my eye on the ball of goals, financial targets etc., AND simultaneously leaning more into consciousness and the true authenticity of who I am as a woman who creates, builds and leads. It is rare that high achieving women have the opportunity to be in this type of environment and I have been forever impacted by the experience.”

Common Questions

How do you match me?

Once registration closes, we carefully review and match 6-7 applicants into each Power Circle peer group based upon information provided by applicants during registration.

We match you with a circle of peers based on revenue/salary, scope of management, work/life experience, level of impact, and future goals. That said, we strive for diversity in the Power Circles, to ensure maximum benefit and expertise for all. We believe strongly in matching entrepreneurial women with executives, nonprofit leaders with game-changers, and everything in between. Ultimately, the common denominator is how big you are wanting to play in your work and life.

What is the time commitment and schedule?

Power Circles will be either Tuesday or Wednesday evenings. Final regular meeting times and dates will be established once you have been placed in your circle. It is best if you can commit to either one of those days. However, if you have a strong preference for one day of the week over the other, please indicate it on the application.

Virtual Power Circles will meet every 3-4 weeks over 4-6 months, 2½ hours per meeting. In-person Power Circles will meet monthly for 6 months, 3 hours per meeting. In-between meetings, for both Virtual and In-person Power Circles, you will spend up to ½ hour for partner check-ins.

Important Dates & Information for Fall 2016:

  • Oct. 13-31: Registration Open
  • Oct. 27th: Price increases from $649 to $749
  • Oct. 31 – Nov 6: Matchmaking
  • Nov. 7: Introductions & Coordination
  • Nov 15: Power Circles Launch
  • Nov 15/16- April 2017: Power Circle Program

What is the difference between in-person and virtual Power Circles?

Virtual Power Circles allow us to make Power Circles open to as many women as possible and match peers from a larger pool of women. Virtual circles meet via video web conferencing.

In-person Power Circles are offered in New York, San Francisco, Boulder, and Denver, when registration numbers allow. Circles will be added in other cities as demand calls, so enroll your friends too!

How can I become a Power Circle facilitator?

We recommend that you go through the Power Circle program as a participant first. Our Power Circle facilitators are enrolled in our invitation-only Power Circle training.

What is the Power Circle refund policy?

The Power Circle is a 6-month facilitated small-group process (4-months for Virtual Circles), requiring the full commitment of all participants. There are limited spaces available, and we carefully match each Power Circle based on the individual participants. Because each person's full commitment is necessary for the Power Circle to have the highest value for all of the participants, there can be no refunds or credits of any kind after you are placed into a Circle. This includes partial refunds for missed Circle meetings. Your credit card is required to reserve a spot within a Circle, but your card will NOT be charged until you have been placed into a Power Circle. By signing up for a Power Circle you also agree to the dates and format of this program.
