Post image for New: What Women Need Coaching Group – December 7th 2010

 

How can you balance: love, work, and fun?

How can you fill yourself so that you have more energy, motivation and the capacity to give without feeling depleted?

How can you strengthen your level of happiness, resilience, support and mindfulness?

The What Women Need Coaching Group is about creating your vision and goals and turning possibilities into realities. The conversations and coaching that take place and the quality of the connections, propel participants into clarifying and realizing personal and professional goals and dreams.

Randy Kamen Gredinger, Ed.D. psychologist and life coach will be leading the group. Please read my bio and press page for more information about my background and experience.

A new WWN Coaching Group is beginning on Tuesday evening, December 7th from 7:00-10:00 p.m. Meetings will be monthly. There will be 8-10 participants in the group. For flow, continuity and maximum results a six month commitment is required. Each 3 hour session is $125.

Some of the words women have used to describe how they feel in WWN Coaching Group:inspired… energized… connected… motivated… recharged… optimistic… strengthened… enlivened… happier…”

I hope you will join us for this group. There are several spots available. Please feel free to recommend this coaching group to other women.

The WWN Coaching Group will meet  in Wayland, MA. Tea and light yummy snacks will be served. I hope you will be able to join this dynamic atmosphere and connect with an awesome group of women.
