Event details

"I feel like I'm coasting and could be hitting a comfortable plateau. I think I need a new goal to work towards so I don’t waste this time or potential."

"I feel like I'm not necessarily on the long term path that I want to be on, but I'm unsure exactly how to know what that is, or where to look next."

'I'm feeling stuck in my role. My current job is not enough and this happens every couple of years. I don't know how to move to the next step."


If you've been a lifelong high achiever or top performer, these kinds of creeping thoughts and feelings can be terrifying to confront. Naming them and talking it all out loud can help make it less scary!

If you are struggling with similar worries (all real challenges shared in Grand Council over the years!), we invite you to join us in our February Clarity Council for a glimpse of The Grand's live coaching experience.


What is Clarity Council? Clarity Council is a group conversation based around deep inquiry — this is a signature part of our coaching methodology. All participants share a challenge that they are currently facing with the group. One individual's challenge is then selected for focused group coaching. This is an opportunity to practice vulnerability, empathetic listening, and asking open and honest questions in support of one individual’s stated challenge.


Journaling & Metaphors

We'll start by journaling answers to these questions.

  • What's the most difficult personal or professional challenge you have on your plate right now? Which challenge, if you could magically solve it, would help you feel better, more in control, on a stronger path?
  • If you could add a metaphor that describes your challenge, what would it be? (i.e. “it’s like we’re on a battlefield”, or “it’s like we’re speaking different languages”)

Round Robin Sharing of Challenges

Each person will share for their challenge and metaphor.

Selecting Focus Person

The group will collectively select and/or vote on a challenge to go deeper on.

Group Coaching

1. Focus person expands on the challenge

2. Group processes the challenge together via practicing coaching skills

3. Group checks out with each person sharing one final idea, question, or takeaway for the focus person

4. Focus Person shares their takeaway and what's next for them

Coach bio

I am passionate about helping purpose driven individuals and organizations reach their optimal potential. As a coach, I’ve enjoyed spending time creating communities for Women of Color Visionaries to connect, create and collaborate. I have created workshops, tools and affirmations to help founders grow their ideas, businesses, and creative projects. I currently work in HR Strategy at Microsoft after receiving my MBA from Duke’s Fuqua School of Business and Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and Women/Gender Studies from Dartmouth College.

In my spare time, I love to dabble in all things wellness and creative arts(I’m certified to teach yoga and published my first book of poetry in 2021!)  Outside of school, I have lived most of my life in Los Angeles, and I’m now learning to appreciate less sunshine in the Pacific Northwest.
