Yes. At this point in time, this program is exclusively available to women, and designed to empower and inspire them to break through glass ceilings and compete at the highest level.
The program is divided into three phases – BA, MA and PhD – each of which includes four topics (one per month). The course includes more than 20 hours of engaging, value-packed instruction via video weekly calls to support your learning. Many of our lessons include inspiration and instruction from experts in these subjects (see above for a sampling of our guest instructors). You will have weekly assignments, daily journaling prompts, and monthly assignments to complete – some individually and some in small groups.
You will be able to instantly communicate with your guides and classmates and will have a one-on-one strategy session with co-founder Kathy Simmons upon completion of each phase at the four, eight, and 12-month marks.
The course can be successfully completed in 12 to 15 hours per month.
The video lessons are online and can be consumed at your convenience. Weekly virtual group calls are an opportunity to discuss and apply your learnings in a collaborative and supportive group setting.
We welcome English-speaking participants from anywhere in the world.
All members will be expected to complete all lessons and here’s why: we’re training you for ALL your jobs; not just your current one or next one. So, even though you think you might not need to know about a particular topic now, you never know when you might in the future.
Think of all the material in Mindful Career Building as tools in your toolbox – there for you to rely on as needed over the course of the next several decades.
One-on-one career coaching calls with Kathy take place at the conclusion of each ‘phase’ of the program (BA, MA and PhD) which puts them at (roughly) the four, eight- and 12-month marks.
The investment you make in Mindful Career Building will pay off many times over. It includes everything you need to know, do and have in order to feel confident pursuing the next level – and excel at it when you get there.
But it’s not just designed to get you your next job – what you learn will positively impact your career for decades to come. In other words, it will likely be one of the best investments you make. That said, we understand that an extra expense can be difficult. To make it as easy as possible for you to manage the investment we’ve given you two registration options: a monthly payment plan for those who prefer smaller payments and a discounted one-time payment for those who prefer to pay all at once.
Once the course is complete, you will have all your course materials to rely on forever. You will have the option of becoming an alumni member of our program. You’ll also have built a sisterhood of support with a team of likeminded women on the same path as you.
While the focus of Mindful Career Building is on your career, you will certainly develop skills and awareness that will benefit your personal life. For example, the financial literacy component will be useful in managing your personal finances, and learning to delegate can make you a better parent and leader in other areas of your life.
