Traditionally, think tanks have gathered top industry experts and researchers from tech, corporate, and government industries to push ideas for new products, ideas, and have even led to laws that govern our economic policies.

In this think tank design lab, I’ll be guiding you through a process to design a think tank centered on supporting YOU and your true purpose and path in life.

When I turned 35 I was at a career crossroads

When I turned 35 I was at a career crossroads. My climb into non-profit leadership was tumultuous and downright traumatic. Emotionally I was drained and distraught about continuing on in my industry. With barely any resources except my personal and professional networks, someone proposed I host a think tank so I can ask my community what I should do next.
So, I turned my 35th birthday celebration into a think tank about me and my next career move.

This event is what helped shape what the next several years would be like, leading to the launch of my nature-based coaching and consulting firm in 2016. Knowing how pivotal and critical this gathering was for me, I’m here now offering you the same process and tools to support you in your path forward.

If you’re at your own career crossroads...

or need to call in your community for their expert support, join us in this design lab so we can help you create the blueprint of your own personal think tank in community with folks who have been through it or on the journey towards building a new future.

Whether you have a brilliant idea, project, or business you’ll be in a room of solid thought partners so you can feel more confident in walking fiercely onto your own path.

Gather with a small & intimate group of creatives, entrepreneurs, community providers, and wellness practitioners to design our futures together!

During this series of design labs I’ll guide you through the basic components of what makes a think tank effective.

Each design lab includes self-guided material, a live workshop session, and a live group coaching session.
Self guided preparation activities will be available in our course room a few days before the live workshop. After each workshop we follow up with an online community lab space so you can create your content within a supportive community. The unique needs of our cohort will be supported with real time group coaching support, story sharing, resourcing, and network sharing opportunities. 


What you'll receive from the full series:
  • 3 full workshops along with a community presentation day
  • 3 online group coaching sessions
  • a full digital workbook to support the creation of your blueprint
  • a complimentary private power coaching session to support follow through and customize your strategy

Design Lab 1 - Navigating the Compass
Take an objective look at what your career and personal life landscape is as you enter these design labs and
dream up where you want to go. The guidance of nature will help us navigate this landscape and create a specific intention to anchor you as we begin community building.

Design Lab 2 - Creating the Container/Vessel
Building the container of your think tank and what it will look like, feel like, and who the key players will be is a critical step in setting the tone and being clear about how your community can support you.

Design Lab 3 - Creating the Path(ways)
Getting down to the nitty gritty of your event can make all the difference in how this experience can shape you. This workshop will be key in getting the logistics aligned with your purpose and how your guests can walk with you on this journey to create the life’s path you were meant to be on.

Community Presentations
Get inspired, hear each other’s stories, refine, and prepare each other to roll out your think tanks! Our culminating gathering(s) will be a place to hear what we’ve each created and provide further support and effective feedback on our designs!

This workshop is relevant for anyone in the process of a career transition/transformation, feel stuck in their career paths or choices and are not sure if they are doing what they are called to do, have a new idea to pitch to their community, want to celebrate themselves in an intentional way with a supportive community, feel lost and need a supportive community to reflect what they might not see in themselves. The purpose of this design lab is for you to create an intentional space to gather information and inspiration for your next move!

When does the series course start and finish?
THIS SERIES WILL START on July 6th and end with presentations on August 17th & 24th. Our second day of presentations will be dependent on the number of participants.

How long do I have access to the course?

What is "Self Guided Material"?
Every Monday before Thursday’s lab, a corresponding course will be uploaded to our online learning platform, Teachable. The online courses are self-guided and can be reviewed at your own pace and schedule. The courses include reading, reflection prompts, and worksheets that will be used in the following Thursday lab.

We recommend reviewing the course prior to the lab to optimize your experience in the session, but it is not required.

Is this series only for BIPOC providers or inclusive of White identified providers as well?
This space is open to all community members and targets those within our respective networks, which often are BIPOC and other systemically marginalized groups. We aim to empower everyone with a series that will amplify the leadership in each person so that they can show up fully for their communities they work with. We tend to appeal to the BIPOC community and establish safe spaces for those in most need to heal through and process the impacts of colonization and white supremacy on themselves and those communities being served.

Are there any ways I can still participate if I can't afford any of the pricing options?
We are committed to serving all providers to have access to this amazing opportunity. We consider this series a professional development service, and encourage you to first reach out to your employers or colleagues for support. We also encourage you to reach out to your community and/or family to support your growth and development. 

What does “online” mean?
We utilize a few different technology tools to maintain communication with the cohort and facilitators along with sharing the training information. These tools include: direct email, Teachable (training material & program info), Google calendar, & Zoom.

Can I still participate if I am outside of the Bay Area?
Yes! This series is open to all in most time zones. We use Pacific Time (PT) and Eastern Time (ET) as points of reference on our schedule.
