Reset Your Mindset - A Small Group Coaching Option

Introducing a 3-month Small Group Coaching Experience

for Professional Women 

Identify and Overcome Self-Limiting Beliefs to Tap into An Empowered Mindset

Shift from reacting to responding using proven neuroscience methods

Improve self-perception and leverage your strengths more powerfully

Build your mental fitness and agility to meet unexpected challenges

Get energized and focused, bringing your full self to your workday and your relationships

Integrate a positive and productive approach to your work

Together, over three months, we’ll meet 1x weekly to explore the thoughts, habits and patterns that keep you stalled and introduce you to skills that will shift your current perspective and the way you handle negative chatter in your mind. 

Overcome self-limiting beliefs, break through barriers, and recognize opportunities you may have missed before. Through this work, you’ll improve your self-perception, focus and performance. This experience is made more powerful by our small group format that provides ongoing support, motivation, and accountability with other professionals who share your challenges and your goals for self-expansion. You'll gain the necessary traction to move forward and toward what’s important to you.

As coaches, Mary Anne Melear, CPCC, ACC and Gina Howell, CPCC, ACC work with professional women interested in doing good work, exploring, and expanding their potential and making a positive impact. 

Despite our best intentions, many times we get in our own way, stopping ourselves from doing what’s important to us. Having another perspective can unlock your way forward.

This is where we come in – to help you recognize a pattern of negative thinking that keeps you from taking positive action toward meaningful change in your work and life. The inner critic we all carry within us does some serious sabotaging. 

Here is a sampling of Saboteurs that may be familiar to you:

The Avoider

You put off difficult tasks and conversations to the detriment of real productivity.

The Controller

You feel like if you don’t handle things they won’t get done right, but this compounds your stress and stresses others.

The Hyper Achiever

You set the bar high for yourself and tie this to self-validation, but these workaholic tendencies push away others and leave you exhausted.

The Pleaser

You’re quick to help and rescue others and often put your own needs last which leaves you feeling emotionally and physically spent.

When you’re managing so much at work and at home, it can be difficult to manage these kinds of self-sabotaging behaviors. This program is designed to be integrated into your day-to-day. It doesn’t require a Zen retreat or a yoga class. You’ll learn to identify and address your own inner critic with brief daily mental fitness exercises that will make an enormous difference in how you navigate through your day. This program is the beginning of making a real shift in how you show up and make a difference in your life. 

Doing this work in a small group of women who share your challenges is powerful! Sharing, witnessing, supporting each other is a cathartic way to learn. And our 3-month program provides you with the tools you need to stay focused, productive and resilient. 

Our purpose is to ignite greater empowerment among women. It’s a tall order, but an important one and we’d love for you to join us.

Based on a proven system developed by Stanford University lecturer and NY Times bestselling author, Shirzad Chamine, this seven-week experience will cultivate an empowered mindset.

This series uses content produced by the Positive Intelligence Institute and is facilitated by Certified Coaching Leaders Gina Howell, CPCC, ACC and Mary Anne Melear, CPCC, ACC.

Each leader owns and manages a professional coaching practice that specializes in working with highly motivated professional women interested in expanding their potential through meaningful and sustainable change.

Here’s what you’ll accomplish through
the 3-Month Mindset Reset Program:

  • Identify and quell self-limiting and self-sabotaging beliefs

  • Access tools to shift from reacting to responding

  • Enjoy the benefits of boundary-setting

  • Encourage collaboration among team members

  • Learn how to integrate a positive and productive approach to your work

“Discovering my own saboteurs was an eye-opening experience which helped me improve both personally and professionally. The program itself is very useful and with Gina and Mary Anne guiding the participants in their positive and uplifting ways, it is absolutely worth the investment. I highly recommend their services."
