    The world faces unprecedented accelerating changes that bring us to places we have never experienced before. To navigate this leading-edge, preparation is key and active participation of feminine energy is needed. History has shown that many women have been predominant in leading in times of change. Why should it be any different today?

     

    Transformation is all our business wherever we are…

  • “The future of leadership will be more feminine, conscious, and collective. Coming Into Your Own offers intriguing real life examples and core practices for this new, inner leadership work. Highly recommended!”

  • An Essential Conversation with CIYO co-founder, Barbara Cecil:

  •  

    “In November 2021 I participated in the CIYO program in Belgium. Over the years, I followed many management trainings, but none as fundamental as this one. I highly recommend it to any person who is willing to dive deep and to learn and experience the power of CIYO. It can be transformational and enlightening, whilst staying grounded and secure. It combines the heart and the mind. The guidance of the facilitators helped all participants to gain new insights, useful in both work and personal life. It’s a gift to yourself to take this training.”

    CIYO Turkey participant

     

    "CIYO encourages openness and authenticity – providing a safe, supportive and open environment where women can shed their everyday role as mother, wife, daughter, boss or colleague.

     

    I was able to see myself from the inside out vs. outside in, setting aside the perceptions of those I interact with on a daily basis.

     

    There is tremendous power and insight that comes from being witnessed and witnessing others as the group provides the gifts of collective feedback, perspective, spirit and energy. My CIYO experience helped me gain significant new perspective as I considered a major transition in my life."
