Accountability + Collaboration = Success

JUST SAY YES!! A lawyer says, 'YES!' to opening up her own practice. An executive reduces stress and increases productivity by 30%. A wellness center owner leads her team in a new direction. A non-profit manager reflects upon her future. A designer writes her first book. A coach finds her tribe and doubles her income. A teacher creates balance. An entrepreneur takes great leaps to challenge culture through his work. A manager brings compassion to leadership. Someone like YOU changes their life, contributes to the world in a BIG way and accomplishes major milestone goals. ARE YOU NEXT?

We're all in this Together

Your calling is BIG.
It's time for BIG support.

You care deeply about the work you do, how it touches lives, how it effects our community, how it effects the planet and how your contribution effects how you feel. There's something strong within you that yearns to 'give deeply' while sometimes feeling like you'd like to 'step away from it all' but you know you can't. There's bills, family, obligations and then there's your work-- the work you love (or want to discover). Things can get a little messy and chaotic. How do you weave what's important together-- sustainably, without falling apart at the seams?

Chaos is a reality of life. Finding a safe place to be real, be messy, be curious and to share ideas is rare. I believe we're all in this together and yet the truth is--- sometimes we feel disconnected, isolated and alone.

Hello, my name is Annelies. I'm an integrative life and leadership coach, facilitator, speaker and author who helps passionate professionals to navigate change mindfully and creatively.

My gift today is an invitation to join a unique mastermind group that rekindles your sense of connection, helps you achieve results and seeds incredible change in you and others.

Welcome to Wisdom Circle!

It's different.
You're different.
And that's good!

It's time to discover the leader within.

Welcome to Wisdom Circle,
facilitated 6-month accountability mastermind group. It's for the passionate professional who's ready take action, values collaboration and needs space to think, plan and propel their ideas and vision forward. Bi-weekly meetings, accountability partnerships and coaching support helps professionals foster leadership, define themselves, grow their business, catalyze ideas, fuel their vision and solve issues while they gain traction, direction, community and peace of mind from personal and professional accomplishments.

Wisdom Circle seminars are a hybrid offering that combines in-person and online meetings. We meet in small groups of 6 to 8 people. This intimate experience enriches lives and alters how people lead, create and communicate, and invites them to embrace new ways to solve fundamental personal and professional issues. It's where collaboration, creativity and deep inquiry meet a touch of indigenous wisdom. Sound intriguing? Join us!

Wisdom Circle is aligned to serve YOU:
the compassionate, purpose-driven professional, who's a bit stressed from juggling all those hats, AND who's wildly passionate about living a life and career that's aligned with what's good and what's right with the world. (Even if you're unsure of exactly what that looks like right now.)

Wisdom Circle is a commitment. It takes place at a specific time and place and is designed to provide structure, resources, leadership and support.

Wisdom Circle is a life-line. It's the thread that ties what's great about you; your experience, resources, passion and hunger to serve the world's greatest need.

Wisdom Circle is personal.
It's an interesting, integrative and a fertile incubator-style forum where sharing is encouraged, safely teasing your best to show up.

Wisdom Circle is about possibility. It's about being true to your vision and values, while taking courageous risks to step up and step out.

Wisdom Circle is about community
. It's an intimate and safe environment designed to coddle great ideas and soulful hearts. It's THE cohort you need.

Wisdom Circle is about collective & indigenous wisdom. It's about honoring and applying what we already know while exploring through the genius of nature, creativity and collective knowledge. It's definitely unlike any professional development seminar you've ever experienced before!
