Enabling women to lead unapologetic lives through personal and leadership development.

The journey of Becoming

At Becoming we help women find who they were created to be.

Too much leadership development is about telling women what to do and how to do it.  It is about standing in front and directing women to act in ways that are desirable or deemed to be successful.

At Becoming, we walk alongside women. We help them take a journey into themselves, to seek out their true self and their absolute identity.  We help them face into their challenges, uncover their shadows and integrate their many facets into one whole.

We’re not here to tell you how to lead.  We’re here to help you discover the leader, the woman, you are within. 

A journey for Women

As individuals, as women, we spend the first half of our lives building the “house” we live in – our identity, direction, significance and boundaries. These structures help us to feel valued.  They help us to face challenge and contradiction with stability and certainty.

For some, this ‘house’ is so ordered that we want to stay there, hanging onto our validations, securities, prejudices and hurts.  If we do, life gets narrower and smaller.

But sometimes, either through choice or circumstance, we are brave enough to set out on a larger journey.  To make a leap of faith and seek a broader, deeper perspective on ourselves and our lives.  We seek meaning, connection, integration, within ourselves and with humanity as a whole.  We seek a larger, richer life.

This is the journey of Becoming.  We will walk it with you.

A journey for Leaders

As organisations, as leaders, we often subscribe to a belief that leadership is a skill that can be taught.  We invest heavily in providing tools, techniques, hints and tips that explain what to do and how to do it.

Naturally, there is value in this.  At the start of a leader’s career, it provides structure and safety.  It equips them with the tools of the job.

But as leaders get more senior, and talent pipelines become thinner, we need to be bold enough to stop focusing on what the leader does, and instead help them to uncover who they are.  We need to embrace the rich diversity of the leaders that we have, and the wealth of strength and wisdom that they bring.  We need to help them find meaning, create connection, and integrate all parts of themselves and their role for the good of both the organization and humanity as a whole. 

This is the journey of Becoming.  We will walk it alongside you and your leaders

The Becoming Journey gave me a supportive network, tools and encouragement to find my values and voice, to drop the struggle with my inner critic and listen to my inner mentor – all of which gives me confidence to go forward with more purpose and inner strength.

It has been the most self-reflective learning journey I’ve undertaken and as such it has given far more self-awareness, at a deep level, than any other learning experience.  I step forward with greater confidence, courage and self-acceptance.

The Becoming Journey was different to any course I’d attended before – rather than learning new information or trying to improve one’s knowledge or skills, it guided us to look within ourselves and appreciate, accept and enhance our own thoughts, feelings and characteristics.  It has given me a new sense of confidence and peace.

Be prepared to reflect, deeply and fearlessly!  This isn’t your usual leadership / management course, but if you are willing to take the plunge, it’s definitely worth it.

The journey itself is quietly powerful. The aha-moments are deeply personal without feeling awkward. I discovered things about myself I didn’t know before and revisited some old places that needed dusting off and healing.  The calibre of women in the group is in itself an inspiration and yet we’re all humbly learning together.

The Becoming Journey has had a MASSIVE impact on me.  After many years I feel that I have truly unpicked all the layers that have built up over the years, challenged myself and now know that I AM ENOUGH!

Madeleine Milne
Managing Director / Women on Boards UK

The Becoming Journey has been a very impactful process and experience.  I feel I have gone on a journey of self-reflection and ultimately self-acceptance.  I didn’t really know what to expect from the course before I started but I am so glad and privileged to have experienced it and am sure a lot of the content will stay with me for many years to come.
