COURAGEOUS CHANGEMAKERS

A COACHING GROUP TO SUPPORT SEATTLE-AREA CHANGEMAKERS TO TAKE COURAGEOUS, EFFECTIVE, & EASEFUL ACTION FOR A THRIVING COMMUNITY.

In this group, I will support you to take courageous and easeful action to contribute meaningfully to your community. Through coaching, you will experience more ease and joy in your work so that you can make the impact you are here to make for climate and social justice.

Why courageous action? Why now?

In Seattle, our communities are facing a housing crisis, gentrification, rising numbers of community members living on the streets, an imbalance in food security, all while climate impacts worsen and amplify the inequity that exists in our communities.

At the same time, thousands of our community members across Seattle are taking action to create a different future. You are engaged in climate and social justice because you are dedicated to supporting our communities to thrive. You are organizing, educating, advocating for policies, building community-rooted solutions, and more, so that you can help bring to life the powerful vision of justice living in you and your community.

This is an uncertain, unpredictable journey. You might question whether you will be successful. You might feel alone at times. You might feel like the success of your team, and the future of your community, rests heavy on your shoulders. Even when we love what we do, we can end our days drained, overwhelmed, worried, or exhausted -- rather than enlivened. Taking courageous action, with ease, can feel so hard!

What would be possible if you were consistently taking courageous and easeful action in your changemaking?

Our communities need all of us to be engaged for justice, and this journey is calling on each of us to learn how to be effective and to experience ease and joy in our changemaking. As your coach, I will share skills and tools that will support you to see your purpose clearly in social change work, and stay in action from that purpose. You will learn how to be resilient and innovative when your plans don’t play out how you expected. You will create possibility in your work, and show up authentically and compassionately, even when it’s uncomfortable.  

If you’re ready to learn these skills and take your community impact to the next level, this is the group for you.

What is a coaching group?

A coaching group is a powerful space for you to get clear and see a path forward where you might currently be stuck. This is different from a discussion group, a team at work, or talking with friends. A coaching group gives you the chance to see you are not alone in the challenges you face, or the dreams you hold. You will learn to more skillfully navigate beyond familiar challenges, clarify your vision, and set goals that bring that vision into reality. This coaching group will produce a lasting shift in the way you relate to what is important to you, so you can do the work that is yours to do, now and for the long-haul.

Why I’m leading this group:

I am a coach, a grassroots organizer, a white cis-woman, and a Washingtonian who still swoons over the mountains and water.

I began organizing on local and state climate issues at 18 years old in Seattle. Over the next decade, my organizing took me across the US and Puerto Rico, organizing with and coaching youth climate activists. We built strategic organizing communities that centered creativity, courage, and belonging.

I began professional training as a coach and co-founded Radical Support Collective so that I could support changemakers to be effective in bringing forth their boldest dreams for what is possible while living joyous, meaningful lives.    

I moved back to Seattle in April 2018 to deepen my work for justice in my home state. I am thrilled to be convening the Courageous Changemakers Coaching Group because I believe being in soulful community nourishes us as we bring our hearts to this critical work. I’m excited to support fellow changemakers in the Seattle area through this group so that we can be in dedicated community together, taking courageous action for change in the places we love and for the people we love.

If any of what I’ve shared resonates for you, let’s talk!
