Executive Women’s Mastermind Group Description:

Executive Women’s Mastermind Group Description:

Kisha Gaines and Laura Smith are launching a Mastermind Group for executive women in leadership roles in the marketplace. We are looking for strong female leaders from different spheres of society who are juggling family, leadership, personal and professional pursuits and can benefit from community, accountability, and personal knowledge sharing from other Christian women in search of the same.

The goal of this group is twofold:

1. Create a safe space to ask questions, learn from each other and share experiences as you garner advice and expertise from other women in the group.
2. Create personal and/or professional goals as well as accountability to achieve those goals.  We are not talking about just the typical workplace goals (like achieving your profit margin or hitting your measurables) but goals for YOU, your personal pursuits, and God-given purpose.
– Meetings are structured around expressed struggles in “Hot Seat” format, updates on top goals, personal wins, and topical discussions including:
  • How to lead as a Christian female in a male-dominated and secular world
  • Work/life balance
  • Rest/sabbath
  • Priorities and delegation
  • Healthy roles as a wife, mom, and executive
  • How to live your values
  • Workplace ministry
  • Emotional/spiritual health
  • 2 meetings per month led (one in person, one over zoom).
  • Tuesday or Wednesday evenings from 7- 8:30 pm.
  • Location TBD

Greg Furer

"Being in a Mastermind Group has helped me become a better husband, father, and leader. I became a facilitator to serve others and help change their lives.

Little did I know that my life would be the one that was changed by the men in my group.

In addition to developing leadership skills from facilitating you will learn from the members you serve."
