All our members’ groups are moderated by Group Leaders who come from within our membership. We don’t hire people, nor do we hold ‘training days’ where you could simply learn our method in a day. This is because we don’t believe in absorbing a culture in a day. We are building something very special, something much greater than ourselves, something much greater than a ‘concept’. We are building a community with a DrivenWoman mindset.
This is why all our Group Leaders come from within the DrivenWoman program. You will usually be an active member and love contributing to the community already before considering of becoming a Group Leader. How fast you can move to the this level depends on you, but on average women become Group Leaders after minimum of 6 months, but usually after 1 or 2 years of membership.
We make an exception to this rule when we open new territories if coming to existing LifeWorking groups is not feasible. If you are interested in bringing DrivenWoman to your area please send Miisa an email.
Can I become a Group Leader faster if I’m already a life coach?
DrivenWoman is not based on trusting a ‘guru’ to give you all the answers. Yes, the Group Leader has often more experience than perhaps some of the other members, but her role still isn’t to ‘coach’. She’s there to inspire and keep people moving forward. At DrivenWoman everyone coaches everyone. So if you are already a life coach and interested in our method we will still expect you to be an active member for a minimum of 6 months before you can be considered becoming a Group Leader.
Why you should consider?
Being a DrivenWoman Group Leader allows me to do what I love: helping other women to achieve the kind of amazing journey that has brought me to where I am now in living the life I love. I know the ride can be rocky at times when trying to pursue your dream, and I’ve been there, so I’m really passionate about helping other women through the same amazing journey.
I was thrilled to become a Group Leader. Coming to DrivenWoman has really helped me personally so now I’m happy to be able to help others on their own journeys.
What DrivenWoman does is simply amazing! The thought process and attitude resonates with me and how I see the world and that’s why I want to be part of it.
DrivenWoman has given me space, support, disruption and inspiration to grow, learn, and find my own answers and I want to share that with everyone. Mandy Reeve
