The Product of You Information Session

Everyone has a story. And each of us has reason to share it. Whether you’re a business owner, a freelancer, you’re thinking about going back to work, or you have a presence online (that’s everyone, really), personal branding is the way in which you tell your story. It creates an emotional connection to who you are, what your past experience has taught you, and where you would like to go. 

As we explore what's next for us, whether that's starting a new business, considering going back to work, or starting a new independent consultancy, it's imperative that we are thoughtful about our personal brand presence, both online and offline.

Inspiration Circle: Finding Openness and Aliveness Through Improv with Shannon Hughes

Shannon_Hughes.JPEG

The Inspiration Circle is a facilitated group session all about personal development, discovery and exploration. Join us to connect with fellow members and come together in a welcoming group setting! This monthly event is a great opportunity to share motivation, ideas, coaching, and mentorship.

On March 28th, we are excited to welcome member, writer and performer Shanon Hughes to guide us through a connective experience that leverages improv theater and exercises to garner open-hearted communication and creative ideation.

In this Inspiration Circle we’ll come together as a collective of storytellers, creatives and business leaders to take improv theater off the stage and into The Hivery! Open our heart to "Yes, and..." through an experiential workshop filled with games, exercises and lively discussion around the impact of key improv principles to life, community and business.

As Keith Johnstone, a pioneer of improvisational theater says, “There are people who prefer to say 'yes' and there are people who prefer to say 'no'. Those who say 'yes' are rewarded by the adventures they have. Those who say 'no' are rewarded by the safety they attain.”

Let’s choose to discover the power of “yes” together!

Key takeaways for participants from this workshop include:

  • An understanding of improv as a path to personal and professional aliveness.

  • A sampling of games to support collaboration, improve communication and spark creative decision making.

  • Play based tools to quiet the ego in lieu of non-judgemental engagement.

Improv is all about kicking our ego-based thinking mind to the curb, in favor of uninhibited play. Neurological studies abound, touting the impacts that improv has on performers' brains - boosting self-expression activity in our prefrontal cortex, while blocking self-monitoring activity. From that place comes freer communication, creative flow and connection. Oh, and it's a whole lot of fun to boot!

This valuable workshop is not to be missed so be sure to grab your seat!

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. This is a BYO brown-bag lunch discussion. All are welcome!

Entrepreneur's Circle: How To Elevate Your Brand Through Publishing A Book

workshop.jpg

Join us for our casual and conversational Entrepreneur's Circle at The Hivery! This is another way to make sure you're not tackling the business of building a business on your own, but rather with the trusted circle of The Hivery community.

This month, we welcome VP, Strategic Partnerships Christina Henry de Tessan and Executive Director, Independent Publishing Meghan Harvey of Girl Friday Productions; a women-owned and women-led firm, that creates gorgeous, brand-building books for authors and entrepreneurs.

Do you have industry-specific knowledge others want to know? Does your professional journey have take-aways others would find inspiring?

Publishing your thought leadership can add value to a national conversation. It can give your methodology or message staying power. It can also take your business or personal brand to the next level.


There has never been a better time to self-publish thanks to advancing technology, easier-than-ever distribution and direct-to-reader marketing opportunities. But let’s be honest. It’s also very confusing, with lots of predatory practices out there; false promises; and fast-changing platforms and offerings. In this presentation, Girl Friday Productions’ Executive Director of Independent Publishing Meghan Harvey and VP of Strategic Partnerships Christina Henry de Tessan explain why self-publishing is no longer a dirty word—and, in fact, why it’s such an exciting option for entrepreneurs. In this presentation, they will talk about:

  • How self-publishing has changed and why it can be a better option for entrepreneurs than traditional publishing.

  • Best practices for indie publishing today

  • Why having a clear marketing strategy is as essential as writing and producing a professional-quality book

  • How to go about it so that you end up with a beautiful book that’s right for you and your message and brand

Most importantly, we will answer your burning questions about how you can use a book to bolster your brand.

Key Takeaways Include:

• Demystifying the book publishing process so that people feel that it’s accessible and a real possibility for them.
• Concrete tips on what it takes to self-publish successfully.
• Letting people know there’s more than one kind of book out there. Authors can be as creative as they like when they become their own publisher.
• Sample books will be on hand to get people excited about the full range of possibilities.

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. This is a BYO brown-bag lunch discussion. All are welcome!

The Hivery Circle: How Introverts and Extroverts Can Flourish At Work and Business with Liz Fosslien

Business and the modern workplace can be an emotional minefield, filled with confusing power structures and unwritten rules. We're expected to be authentic, but not too authentic. Professional, but not stiff. Friendly, but not an oversharer. Easier said than done!

No Hard Feelings Book event at The Hivery

February’s evening Hivery Circle will explore how to bring your best self (and your whole self) to work every day.

Join us for a fun and interactive evening with Liz Fosslien, strategy and design consultant and the co-author of No Hard Feelings: The Secret Power of Embracing Emotions At Worka book that explores how emotions profoundly affect key aspects of professional life.

Introverts and extroverts have different needs: extroverts tend to react to social interactions more quickly, while introverts have a higher base rate of arousal (put an introvert in a noisy open office and he’ll quickly become overwhelmed). In this fun, interactive workshop, Liz will help both introverts and extroverts understand, communicate, and optimize around their own and each others' tendencies.

The book No Hard Feelings: The Secret Power of Embracing Emotions At Work, is a deeply researched yet affectionate guide to un-repressing emotions at work, finding constructive channels even for jealousy and anxiety, and demystifying digital interactions and coworker communication styles. It's launching February 5th, 2019 from Penguin books. Early fans of the book include Susan Cain, Adam Grant, Laszlo Bock, Chris Voss, and Kim Scott.

Key takeaways will include:

  • An overview to the new book which is a guide to effectively expressing your emotions at the office, finding fulfillment, and defining work-life balance on your own terms.

  • Understand how you show up in business or at work each day and what you need to thrive

  • Learn more about how you and others prefer to work through break out exercises such as how you or colleagues prefer to receive praise.

  • ‘How To Work With Me’ practical advice and tips using scientific research

Guests will enjoy wine courtesy of Bee Hunter Wine, and non-alcohol GT’s Living Food and lite bites.  

Don’t hesitate to come alone and mingle with your Hivery community or feel free to bring a friend.

ALL ARE WELCOME at this beautiful and impactful celebration of the new year!

In this workshop Megan is going to help you get out of idea overwhelm, conquer time scarcity and get you into strategic action to bring your brilliant ideas into the world.

Inspiration Circle: Authentic Communication with Daphne de Marneffe, PhD

Daphne de Marneffe - The Hivery workshop January 2019

The Inspiration Circle is a facilitated group session all about personal development, discovery and exploration. Join us to connect with fellow members and come together in a welcoming group setting! This monthly event is a great opportunity to share motivation, ideas, coaching, and mentorship.

On January 24th, we are excited to welcome Daphne de Marneffe PhD, therapist and author of new book The Rough Patch: Marriage and the Art of Living Together, and Maternal Desire: On Children, Love, and the Inner Life to The Hivery. Daphne will being talking to us about how to have authentic communication with those around us particularly when it comes to hard conversations.

In the effort to juggle our many roles, sometimes we can feel like we're losing ourselves. And sometimes nurturing others can come at the cost of providing for our own needs. This workshop will help participants develop a powerful method for talking about almost anything with the important people in their lives.

What makes for truly effective, authentic, and fulfilling communication? Research shows that the most important factors all have to do with emotions: how we tune into them, experience them, respond to them, and align them with our larger goals. After presenting the newest science of emotion and relationships and insights from the therapy consulting room, Daphne will guide participants in discussion and experiential learning about the following topics:


• The three key capacities for healthy emotional relating
• The "wonder drug" of intimate conversation
• A step-wise conversational strategy to deal with hard issues
• Ways to assert yourself and be responsive at the same time, in personal and professional relationships
• Techniques for collaborating as parents when you disagree

Key takeaways for participants from this workshop include:

  • How to identify an important conversation they need to have

  • How to start having that conversation today

  • How to continue that conversation, moving toward harmony and connection and away from tension and distance.

This valuable workshop is not to be missed so be sure to grab your seat!

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. This is a BYO brown-bag lunch discussion. All are welcome!

The Feminine Revolution with Co-Authors Amy Stanton + Catherine Connors

The_Feminine Revolution at The Hivery.jpg

We are thrilled to welcome the co-authors of the new book The Feminine Revolution Amy Stanton and Catherine Connors to The Hivery on Friday January 18th 12. 30 - 1. 45 pm.

This interactive and provocative discussion will confront twenty-one feminine qualities that are perceived as weak and reframe them as powerful tools that are the basis for lasting relationships, creativity, leadership and authenticity. Using their own personal journeys alongside historical research and analysis, the co-authors challenge societal misconceptions and make the case for a fresh look and a new approach to femininity, arguing why these traits are to be embraced rather than maligned.

Attendees will be inspired to think differently and will leave with practical tools to tap into their power, their femininity, sensitivity, intuition, and even their tendency to cry. The workshop will include a 20 minute interactive talk, a Q&A, and book signing at the end.

Key takeaways will include:

  • Challenge old and outdated perceptions that feminine traits and qualities are weaknesses, and learn how to revisit those characteristics as powerful assets that should be embraced rather than maligned.

  • Each attendee will learn how to define femininity in her own way.

  • Leave with the tools to explore the full range of their powers and release the internal struggle between their masculine and feminine traits.

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. All are welcome!

The Hivery's What's Next: A Four-Week Workshop Series

Whats_Next_Jan_program_The_Hivery.jpg

Explore positive change in your life! Whether you want to go back to work, back to school, start a business, or volunteer in a personally meaningful way, The Hivery’s What's Next workshop will help you to identify possibilities that match who you are, what you are naturally good at, and what excites you.

This four-week workshop series is especially beneficial for women who crave being part of a supportive group of like-minded women that encourage ideas, next steps and action.

Individually and as a group, you will:

  • Learn how to recognize patterns that hold you back and identify threads that point to your purposeful work

  • Create new habits that support change

  • Get unstuck and motivated to get moving again

  • Deepen your understanding of who you are and what makes you tick

Course coaches, Laura Riordan, Ph.D. and Linda Lesem, M.S., use their extensive experience in coaching, psychology, and career counseling to guide participants.  All What’s Next participants will receive a What’s Next Toolkit chock-full of practical actions to support healthy change. 

WHAT IS REQUIRED FROM WHAT’S NEXT PARTICIPANTS?

You don’t need to know what you want...it’s perfectly okay if you don’t. Our only expectation is that you show up fully and that you are ready and willing to explore positive change in your life!


//PROGRAM TAKEAWAYS

GET UNSTUCK

First, you will need to understand why you are stuck. We will explain the myriad of environmental blocks, cultural themes and brain biases that keep you from moving forward. You will find out how to change your mindset, let go of expectations and clear away roadblocks.

OWN YOUR STRENGTHS + VALUES 

We begin with introductions, intentions and a variety of self-assessment explorations including the Myers Briggs (a Personality Typology Inventory).  Additionally, we will explore Interests through the Holland Code, Character Strengths, Skills, Values and a variety of creative exercises that will help you to brainstorm possibilities that are complementary to your true nature.

DESIGN A PLAN FOR CHANGE

We work together to intentionally create space for What’s Next by identifying what works and what no longer serves you.  You will life-design both your physical environment and relationships, to support your new chapter. This is a key component to organizing your life to get “unstuck” and make actual change.  We will guide you towards identifying the intersection of your core values, interests, strengths and skills.  This is the intersection where “good fit” possibilities reside.   

CREATE AN ACTION PLAN

We create actions and accountability around "trying things on."  Your Hivery What’s Next group will be there to help you investigate, network and find out if new action paths are a match with who you are and what you want to do. Finally, we give you practical tools and a variety of Positive Psychology techniques to create your own custom recipe for change.
 

SESSION SCHEDULE + PRICING

Linda Lesem, M.S. is a trained therapist, career counselor and life coach, specializing in Positive Psychology, (the Science of Happiness). She works individually with clients in her own practice, and also facilitates groups for clients, who are yearning to create positive change in their lives! Linda created Moms In Transition, a workshop for Moms who are ready to take their next step, and are asking themselves…"What is next for me?"  This is a great way for a small group of women to be together, as they "get back in touch with who they are", and "what they want" and then start the process of creating a plan for themselves, whether that be re-entering the paid working world, going back to school or volunteering in personally meaningful ways. Learn more about Linda here
 

Laura Riordan, Ph.D. is a holistic life coach who helps her clients find balance and meaningful success. With a Ph.D. in Transpersonal Psychology and 20 years in the mind and body wellness industry, she brings wisdom, clarity and swiftness to her coaching practice. Laura began her career as the head of client services for retreat style resorts and spas, helping people center and refocus themselves while escaping the daily challenges of modern life. While overseeing spa programs and working as a massage therapist, she discovered that retreats were great at providing short-term relief, but they could not offer the kind of long-standing change that so many people needed.

Laura’s coaching practice evolved from the understanding that people need a guide to help identify their meaningful work, ground aha moments and give accountability and infrastructure to make lasting changes. Laura leverages her Ph.D. to help her clients find bigger versions of themselves and her strategic and practical skills to create a road map to get there. Learn more about Laura here.


WHAT’S NEXT PARTICIPANT TESTIMONIALS:


”What’s Next helped me decide to take a business idea that I had been ruminating on for years and make it a reality. Whether you have a conceptual starting point, or  you crave a professional course correction but don’t know in which direction to head, Laura and Linda’s behavioral science-based curriculum will put you on the right path towards a fulfilling new beginning.”

Jodi Klein

"I want to thank you both again for the last four wonderful weeks of "What's Next?" The class exceeded all my expectations and was truly insightful. I appreciate your thoughtful approach and stimulating content. It is such a pleasure to have discovered The Hivery and to have spent time with inspiring, courageous women in class this past month...I did not want the class to end!"

-Sheryl Ott

"I don't have words to describe how valuable I found today's session to be, and how excited I am for the 3 remaining sessions we have. Over the 25 years I've been in the working world, I have worked with a number of career coaches, attended multiple workshops, and purchased countless career books (I just dusted off "Do What You Are" and "The Wisdom of the Enneagram" from my bookshelf). Today's session produced more "aha" moments for me than any I can remember from years past, and we are just at the beginning."

-Anonymous

"I met a friend for lunch who asked me about the workshop and I was happy to tell her the two top take-aways for me were: (1) understanding all the aspects of my life and how they fit together (2) how to structure my schedule in a way that compartmentalizes all the pieces. SO MUCH BETTER."

-Monique Johnson

"While I know I have the knowledge, the courage and the intelligence it is all still quite a scary process... I am putting my best foot forward and filing my life with lots of positive support and encouragement. I am so thankful to have found the combination of the two of you to help me along this path!"

-Karen Polite Sullivan

"Participating in What's Next has provided me with an important opportunity to re-visit self inventory work I completed previously, and then to use that work to take significant, concrete steps towards breathing life into my teen coaching practice. I loved learning from Laura and Linda, as well as from the other participants. Through the five weeks of the workshop, I received a number of helpful suggestions which will help tremendously as I move forward. And finally, participating in What's Next gave me space to formulate important questions and explore solutions."

-Jennifer Labovich

"This class was lead by very professional, excellent life coaches! The group of women were supportive, loving and kind, so much so, that it allowed all of us to open our hearts and feel safe asking for help and supporting each other. I loved all the honesty and beautiful stories we shared and the friendships made...hopefully for a long time!"

-Suzanne Roth-Paul

"I was stuck thinking that earning money for my work was going to be difficult after years of volunteer work. This workshop has been extremely helpful in learning more about myself, my interests and possible directions I can take. Now I am networking and feel optimistic and re-charged. Thank you Laura and Linda!"

Writer's Circle: How to Write Stunning Sentences with Nina Schuyler

Every month The Hivery invites new and established authors to share their wisdom, experiences and resources for writers and non-writers who love books.

Nina Schuyler - The Hivery Writer's Circle

Our facilitator and published author Thais Derich guides the conversation to offer support and cheer each other on while participating your own personal or professional writing venture.

On January 10th, 12. 30 - 1. 45 pm we will welcome author Nina Schuyler who will be talking to us about HOW TO WRITE STUNNING SENTENCES, a book for writers of all kinds, published by Fiction Advocate in October 2018.

Literary Nonfiction. Writing. Composition. You've got a great story, but do you have great sentences? Stylish sentences have their own powerful energy that mesmerizes and even rearranges a reader's world. Think of this book as a private lesson with Nina Schuyler--award-winning author and professor of creative writing at the University of San Francisco--featuring guest appearances by the masters, including James Baldwin, Grace Paley, John Updike, Saul Bellow, and Toni Morrison. They've arrived to show you the mechanics of their magic. With 25 essays and over 100 writing prompts, HOW TO WRITE STUNNING SENTENCES is the best way to expand your writing style.

Nina Schuyler's THE TRANSLATOR, won the Next Generation Indie Book Award for General Fiction and was shortlisted for the William Saroyan International Prize for Writing. Her first novel, THE PAINTING, was nominated for the Northern California Book Award, named by the San Francisco Chronicle as a Best Book for 2004 and by MSNBC as a "fearless debut." See more in her bio below.

"Nina Schuyler's HOW TO WRITE STUNNING SENTENCES is like a Kama Sutra for sentences: it describes the positions and passions of her artful love, and through sharp analyses and generous prompts suggests how you too, writer, may become such an artful lover...Read it and the pleasure will be yours."--Aaron Shurin

The Writer's Circle is facilitated by Hivery Member, Thais Derich. Thais Derich's memoir—Second Chance: A Mother’s Quest for a Natural Birth after a Cesarean (She Writes Press, May 9, 2017)—was a finalist for the Foreword Reviews' 2017 Book of the Year Award. Second Chance was also a finalist for the Creative Non-Fiction Magazine’s Baby Anthology. Thais is an international writer and public speaker on "Being the Hero of Your Life" and "Seeing Invisible Choices" in childbirth and beyond! She is also the founder of the "Write Your Impact" book program.

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. BYO brown-bag lunch discussion.  All are welcome!

Hivery Circle: Setting Intentions For A Fulfilling 2019 with Johanna Beyer

January's Hivery Circle celebrates fresh beginnings and the thrill of setting intentions for the year ahead.

Johanna_Beyer.jpg

January’s evening Hivery Circle will be a great opportunity to think about what you want (really want) for the year ahead and set intentions towards having a successful and fulfilling 2019!

Join us for a fun and interactive evening with coach and founder of On Your Path Consulting Johanna Beyer. Her main philosophy with coaching rests in the belief that everyone has the answers and clarity inside. However, when people are trying to make big change on their own, fear can often block that inner wisdom.

The evening will inspire you to move toward your vision for 2019 each day! Together we’ll set our intentions for making realistic change and actually make it happen! Johanna will talk us through the power of waking up each day and doing your best to be your fullest self.

An important part of getting clear about what you want is allowing yourself to hear your intuition...this can lead to big things! Johanna will talk us through an interactive exercise to help access this important part of ourselves that we often drown out as we go about our busy lives.

Key talking points will include:

  • What is your intuition anyway?

  • How does listening to your intuition affect intention setting?  

  • How to build a solid and loving relationship with your intuition

  • Useful ways to tap into your intuition through a ritual or practice  

  • How to bring your intentions to life through action

We will also be opening the event with a poetry reading by Rachel Hebert @ Truth To Paper.

Guests will enjoy wine courtesy of Bee Hunter Wine, and non-alcohol GT’s Living Food Kombucha and lite bites.  

Don’t hesitate to come alone and mingle with your Hivery community or feel free to bring a friend.

ALL ARE WELCOME at this beautiful and impactful celebration of the new year!

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. All are welcome!

Entrepreneur's Circle: Stand Out on Linkedin + Your Resume with Bronia Hill

Promote yourself 2.jpg

Join us for our casual and conversational Entrepreneur's Circle at The Hivery! This is another way to make sure you're not going at the business of building a business on your own, but rather with the trusted circle of The Hivery community. This month, we welcome career progression strategist Bronia Hill to lead our monthly circle.

This workshop is for those looking to put their best foot forward (especially on LinkedIn) and wanting to own their narrative for a potential career move or to get more referrals.

Developing narratives that serve as the best foundation for a career move is Bronia Hill’s specialty. In other words she’s really good at helping people market themselves.

In 2009 Bronia founded Promote Yourself - a career and resume consultancy (see bio below) - on the basis that life’s too short to spend it on something you’re not passionate about. She wants to see everyone in a career that energizes, challenges, and enables growth. She's on a mission to transform resumes and Linkedin profiles from boring to brilliant.

With more than 500 million global users on Linkedin and 95% of recruiters using the platform to source candidates, you’re going to need something that stands out. Recruiters and hiring managers will likely see this before they look at your resume so take this opportunity to tell your story in an intelligent and engaging way that connects with your target audience and sets you apart from others. 

In this session, Bronia will discuss how your resume and LinkedIn profile set the tone for your career and why it’s so important to get them right. She’ll share her experience along with some effective tactics to ensure you’re positioning yourself in the best way possible.

Key takeaways include:

  • Psychology of first impressions

  • Components of a rocking good resume

  • Creating an engaging Linked in profile that’s on-brand and speaks to your target audience

  • Owning your narrative and telling your story with confidence

  • 10 things you can do immediately to improve your resume and Linkedin profile

The perfect prep for a successful 2019!

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. This is a BYO brown-bag lunch discussion. All are welcome!

The Hivery Incubator 3-Month Program Information Session with Grace Kraaijvanger

Everyone has a story. And each of us has reason to share it. Whether you’re a business owner, a freelancer, you’re thinking about going back to work, or you have a presence online (that’s everyone, really), personal branding is the way in which you tell your story. It creates an emotional connection to who you are, what your past experience has taught you, and where you would like to go. 

As we explore what's next for us, whether that's starting a new business, considering going back to work, or starting a new independent consultancy, it's imperative that we are thoughtful about our personal brand presence, both online and offline.

Creativity Circle: The Science of Sharing Through The Lens of Cognitive Science

The Science of Sharing through the Lens of Cognitive Science

Join us for an opportunity to explore your creativity in community! The Creativity Circle, held the first Thursday of every month, features guest creatives, artists, writers, designers, and makers who will inspire you to explore your inner artist within the walls of The Hivery's Creative Studio. This month, we're thrilled to welcome back the co-founders of Moxie Road Productions Janine Kovac and Tarja Parssinen.

In this creative session, Janine Kovac and Tarja Parssinen will be teaching us about The Science of Sharing through the Lens of Cognitive Science.

Collaboration and inclusivity are valuable tools in today’s creative workplace. But unfortunately, much of our messaging uses dated, hierarchical, winner-take-all narratives, which actually leads the brain astray. If you’re seeking the right goal but with the wrong road map, you’ll never arrive.

That’s where cognitive sciences comes in.

This discipline—an intersection of linguistics, anthropology, neuroscience, psychology, and computer science—is the study of how we think. Cognitive linguistics analyzes the ways in which language molds our thought patterns and influences brainstorming and creativity.

Learn basic facts about the brain that demonstrate the link between language and motivation and which problem-solving strategies evoke joy, altruism, gratitude, and kindness.

These simple strategies are catalysts that will promote a cooperative spirit rather a competitive one, stimulate abundance over scarcity, and evoke courage instead of fear.

The Science of Sharing teaches basic and easy-to-learn principles from cognitive science that audience members will find intuitively logical.

Key takeaways from this workshop will include:

• Listen to and interpret the creative unconscious
• Identify fear-based narratives and transform them into inspirational roadmaps
• Recognize which colleagues are collaborative soulmates
• Cultivate a healthy work environment that spawns and sustains creativity

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. All are welcome!

About Rachel Hebert

Likes to pretend she’s invisible.

(Except when she’s dancing or hanging from things)

She paints most days.

And is sometimes paid for it.

Early influences include

the waves at night, miracles, orange shag carpet, sand castles, and the Holy Spirit. Later: art school, wanderlust and Hafiz.

Now: a desperate clawing for beauty

About Kate Nicholson

Is an open book.

It’s a mystery and a comedy.

With lots of words. And gold edges.

She holds a camera, a child, and a pen with equal grace. All at once. And smiling.

Her long bones grew on Spanish moss, mud pies, early readings of the DSM, and wide-eyed watching raucous Mardi Gras parades.

A rare bird.

Makes beauty.

Brings ease.
