The Wide Lens Leadership Collective is a virtual leadership group coaching program rooted in conscious and strategic leadership principles. As a member, you will have an executive coach and a group of other leaders you can trust as your “personal board of directors” – individuals you can lean on for advice and support on any given leadership or organizational challenge you find yourself in.
What Is Group Coaching?
Group coaching is a powerful peer action learning process that offers a collaborative way to get feedback, diverse perspectives, and learn from the experiences, insights, contributions, and advice from others in similar roles with similar challenges.
Group coaching accelerates the growth of an individual leader and the organizations they lead in a number of ways, including:
- Promotes strategic and productive communication skills
- Builds learning agility and growth mindset
- Supports leaders through change and VUCA challenges
- Develops self-awareness
- Improves team functioning and collaboration
- Develops leaders as coaches
- Provides accountability and accelerates goals
- Deepens creative, strategic, and systems thinking
- Develops interpersonal skills and emotional intelligence
- Inspires strategic navigation through organizational power dynamics and political contexts
- Provides a supportive, confidential community of like-minded leaders
Benefits of Joining the Wide Lens Leadership Collective
Action Learning: You work through real work-related challenges in a group setting, with the benefit of being able to explore the challenge from multiple perspectives and interpretations.
Economical: You get the benefits of ongoing leadership development at a lower cost than individual 1:1 executive coaching.
Community: Members count on one another. This group is more than just a place to network and members share much more than business cards – they share their challenges, needs, direct feedback, referrals, and resources in a confidential setting.
Practice: Many opportunities to practice coaching, listening, presenting, questioning, connecting, and exploring through the group format.
Accountability: With the support of a coach and the group, you will be held accountable to reaching the goals you say you want to achieve.
Executive Coach: A skilled coach and facilitator leads the group to ensure all members participate equally, problems are approached with open exploration, accountability is held, interaction is productive, and the ground rules and goals of the group are met in each session.

Membership into the Wide Lens Leadership Collective begins with a one-year commitment, and is renewed monthly thereafter. We meet twice each month over zoom, with asynchronous homework, accountability checkins, and 1:1 meetings in between group sessions. You will also be invited to join the group on Slack so that you can support one another in a consistent setting. As a group, we also journey together through interactive leadership exercises, discussions, guest speakers, and more.
Leadership can be lonely, and it can be difficult to get candid feedback from those who work for and with you. That is where the power of group coaching shines. Past and present members have noted that the most valuable reasons for joining the group are:
- Being part of a community of like-minded leaders who have your back and know your business and career
- Structured accountability
- Deep connections with others at the same place in their careers/businesses
- Motivation to up-level your career and keep growing
- An opportunity to work through challenges, push boundaries of what is possible, and uncover blind spots with support of an executive coach and a group
Membership is $389/month, which is a fraction of the cost of a 1:1 executive coach.
Registration is currently closed as the group is at capacity. Please fill out the form below or email Melissa to get on the wait list to join the next cohort!
*Confidentiality Note: Every group has a set of bylaws, which includes a commitment to confidentiality. This is an essential component of creating a safe place for vulnerable sharing and exploration.
