Working as a gay male leader in a heteronormative world is different. That's why we are here for you. Gay Men's Coaching Circles help you build on your strengths to scale your leadership and business to the most incredible heights possible.

You will benefit from our Gay Men's Coaching Circles through:

  • An intimate, lasting community and network of powerful male leaders from startups and more established organizations. Plus, you will get access to our alumni network.
  • Increased confidence that comes from a well-rounded leadership mindset, deepening your ability to become a more impactful leader in your work and your life.
  • Actionable tools and world-class training for navigating the toughest growth challenges for yourself, your team, or your organization.
  • Honest feedback and guidance from other executives on the most challenging situations you are facing.

How Gay Men's Coaching Circles Work:

Each circle is curated to bring together 6-10 male executives who are aligned in their leadership goals. Everything shared in a circle is held confidential to create a safe space for exploring even the trickiest challenges.

Each circle is professionally facilitated by globally-credentialed coaches who specialize in working with executives. Each coach is dedicated to your growth.

Gatherings include leadership training that is tailored to your group, with guided peer coaching and accountability.

While each Circle is customized around the participants' needs, typical topics include:

  • Imposter syndrome.
  • Developing a stronger leadership mindset.
  • Effective communication, negotiation, and collaboration.
  • Vulnerability.
  • Creating an inclusive culture

A 1:1 pre-launch coaching session is included in your membership to build awareness for your goals.

Two sessions are held monthly.

Between sessions, we communicate through a dedicated Slack channel to share and collaborate.

Each member of the circle commits to participating for six months.
