FIRST THINGS FIRST Group Huddles

Are you feeling like it's time to uplevel your adversity skills?

Do you miss brainstorming and inspiring conversations with people who get the entrepreneurial roller coaster?

Get connected and inspired to move forward in your business with your best foot forward.

When you tap into the power of the hive mind, you can:

  • Cut through mental chatter and clutter
  • Receive strength and ideas
  • Feel more powerful moving forward

You may be at that point where you are in overthinking mode - the dreaded Analysis Paralysis.  Or wondering if you really want to continue.  

Learn how to approach some of the most important decisions of your business to date from a place of strength and calm.  Talk with others and get new ideas.

  

Here's what one of Deanna's virtual Group Huddles looks like...  

First, a warm welcome and short round table introductions of all the participants (using Zoom).  Expand your network.

Second, Deanna takes the group through a greater understand of the five P.O.W.E.R. areas and practical ideas on how to uplevel each one.  Get stronger everyday.

Third, Deanna facilitates group discussions based on the real-time needs of each particular group.  Connect and open to greater possibilities.

"I truly can’t say nice enough things about Deanna, I believe she is a true leader, and one of the most kind people I’ve had a pleasure to meet.  I wouldn’t be where I am today now as an entrepreneur without her incredible guidance and kindness! 5* Recommend for coaching and business help needs, and as a friend as well."

These sessions are truly original. You will not find them anywhere else in the world.

So you may have some questions...


 



I'm feeling a little vulnerable right now.  What makes these safe?

................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

They are professionally facilitated.  Deanna has over ten years of experience facilitating groups of entrepreneurs at various stages and levels of business.

 

By virtue of participating, each member of the group agrees to confidentiality.  Each member is free to talk about their own stories and their own insights, but agrees not to mention outside this circle anyone else's stories or sharings.

 

By virtue of participating, each member agrees not to sell or pitch their products or services inside the circle.

 

 Each member controls what they share.  Always follow your gut, and if something feels too raw to share, please don't.   

Here's a practical rule of thumb for any professional circle:  ALWAYS abide by confidentiality, AND decide what to share with the possibility in mind that what is said could be inadvertently breached.

 

Sessions will be recorded for internal purposes only.  They will NEVER be shared or sold, and they will never be used beyond the purpose of improving services.

 



Will there be a sales pitch/expectation to buy at the end of this session?

Short Answer: No.

Long Answer: Nope.

Sounds fishy.  What's the catch?   It's a pay-it-forward thing, as many have graciously helped Deanna in the past so she knows first-hand that "it takes a village".  Deanna feels called to contribute to her business family out of service in these difficult times, simply because she can.  She wants you to feel free to participate, without concern for reciprocation. 

If you feel called to contribute after the session, your feedback is enthusiastically received.  Help us improve!


"We were a diverse group coming from many vantage points.  Deanna did an amazing job of speaking to us all, at our varying positions - experientially and emotionally.  I gleaned insights and enjoyed a safe space to share."

Who are these Group Huddles for?

................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

These live virtual sessions ARE for those who:

  • could benefit from a burst of energy and insight
  • appreciate someone else leading the charge for once
  • are willing to show up and participate
  • are not interested in a long commitment


These sessions are NOT for those who:

  • want someone else to make their decisions for them
  • are secretly quite comfortable where they are at
  • have little or no intention to follow through

While these are currently complimentary, if people start abusing them and wasting seats, they will not be continued to be offered for free.  Please show respect for the time, energy and care it has taken to make these available.

  • even one new idea could change the entire trajectory of your business.

 

BOOK YOUR FARM CARD SESSION

 

"I loved the Farm Cards Session because I’m always interested in how I’m seen by others in the world. My clarity came from ‘I am not new to this industry’. Just because my past experience is in Human Resources doesn’t mean I lack experience in coaching. I have very transferable skills. Deanna’s introspection of what comes up in the cards is so useful everyone should have a session with her! I can’t wait to do it again!!”

Elizabeth Bessey, EB Professional Coaching, New York

"I was worried that I had already thought about the issue of my work and 'niche' a lot, and I wouldn't learn anything new.

I found that using the Farm Cards and Deanna's wisdom opened up new aspects of the situation and solutions. They provided a symbolic image that could be interpreted in multiple ways.

Each card sparked some creative and intuitive thinking that we probably wouldn't have gotten to with talking alone.

Deanna's grounded, present and loving presence holds a safe space within which I could be vulnerable, and explore.

She was deeply attentive to the thoughts I was sharing, and added wisdom of her own that added new dimensions. We ended with some specific action steps I could take to move forward. I am so grateful that Deanna shared her gifts with me.

I highly recommend working with her if you would like to have breakthrough insights and move forward in any area of your life."
