ANIMA – co-vision coaching groups for Women Leaders

Anima: soul; life; feminine principle.
Co-vision: collaborative supervision

This year the workplace has changed dramatically: the pandemic and ensuing recession have forced rapid changes to working methods and approaches. People everywhere are rethinking what makes organisations and leaders fit for new futures.

Working online from home has brought new challenges – whilst we are still engaging with the perennial issues of what it means to be a woman leader today. Outstanding women leaders around the world, like Jacinda Ardern, have shown themselves better at dealing with crises than those following the ‘Strong Man’ model. What can we learn from such women? And what new approaches and models are needed for new workplaces?

Anima is about stepping back and slowing down – so we can think clearly, deeply and widely together.

Anima is both a place of inquiry and a sanctuary: we explore challenges and concerns, share ideas, models and tools, while building community through a space where you can slow down, drop the professional ‘mask’, connect, reflect, learn and seed effective action.

Our aim with Anima is to promote a holistic approach to thinking and decision making – which means mind, body, heart and spirit are all ‘online’! This will also restore your energy and help you face complexity, uncertainty and rapid change with courage and wisdom (rather than wanting to hide under the duvet!).

I decided to work with Hetty and Liz when I was moving to a new law firm. By putting their coaching into practice I quickly got onto the promotion track, established great relationships with my colleagues and secured a new line of business for the firm.

I feel far more confident and resourceful as a leader since the course. As a direct result my board have given me greater responsibility and I have gone out and created new opportunities for my organisation in a way that I would not have done before.
Nancy Hey
Director, What Works Centre for Wellbeing
It gave me time to think about me, my business and my leadership – I feel completely inspired, re-invigorated and raring to go

Are you wondering how to…

  • Envision new futures in times of great uncertainty?
  • Make the most of being a woman leader right now?
  • Lead your team remotely (and face to face)?
  • Manage your own and others’ anxiety?
  • Keep the boundaries between work and your personal time?
  • Make time for self care (put your own oxygen mask on first!)
  • Counter isolation – whether you work from home or feel alone at the top?

These groups are a space to:

  • Draw on role models who inspire you: the Jacindas and Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez’s – or the mothers, grandmothers and daughters in your life
  • Get comfortable with power: how to express ‘power with’ rather than ‘power over’ and have a voice at the decision-making table
  • Be open and honest about what’s going on: dropping the mask develops resilience and the courage to be yourself
  • Gain multiple perspectives on your challenges: ‘outsider views’ give you insight and pathways to fresh solutions
  • Tap into a community of professionals you can call on between sessions to sound out ideas or for support
  • Get feedback from peers to make sure you’re being the best possible role model for others

Now is the time…

Now is the time to bring the spirit of leadership back into the workplace. In order to stay the course for the challenges ahead, take time to recalibrate your purpose, power and presence, and clarify your unique contribution to building a new future.
