We'll thoughtfully curate a topic for your group - whether your gathering is personal or professional, a full-day retreat or a lunch-time workshop. Meaningfully connect, design the future, or skill-build.
Group coaching is a transformative experience and can be used to navigate transitions, cultivate self-awareness, build teams, design a mission or brand, or build better stronger relationships.
Group coaching can be structured as a professional workshop, a retreat, or a virtual event.
As a certified relationship coach and mediator, I am well-versed at helping groups improve dynamics, communication, and relationships. Get in touch to start designing your next event.
What attendees are saying
"The perfect combination of inspiration and tactical skill."
Brandy ran an amazing and thoughtful workshop for the Haas Women in Leadership club and it was one of the best workshops I have ever attended! Because of Brandy's deep knowledge of professional coaching and experience, she was able to deliver the perfect combination of inspiration and tactical skill development. She was also prepared with additional research on current topics, anticipating multiple questions from the group.
Not only did she share relevant and insightful content, she also delivered it in a way that was interactive and easy to absorb. After walking us through guidelines around personal brand establishment, we were paired into breakout rooms to apply our learnings straightaway. I took away several strategies that were key to establishing my personal brand in my summer internship - wouldn't have been able to step into my role as confidently without Brandy's workshop!

"BUILDING TRUST-FILLED RELATIONSHIPS" VIRTUAL RETREAT
"Her style is compelling and enjoyable."
Brandy led an excellent workshop on navigating career transitions for the Harvard Club of San Francisco. We had great attendance of nearly 50 attendees and meaningful engagement from the group. Many of the participants stayed on for another 45 minutes after the presentation to ask questions and get support. We are grateful she was gracious with her time as she added so much value during the Q&A.
Attendees shared that they found the workshop to be motivating, encouraging, and tactical. It is clear that Brandy is an expert in her craft, but she's also skilled at presentations. Her style is compelling and enjoyable. I enthusiastically recommend Brandy for your next workshop or event.

"NAVIGATING A CAREER TRANSITION" SALON TALK
"Brandy went above and beyond - very happy with our choice."
The NASA Ames Early Career Network (ECN) recently hired Brandy. In preparation for the workshop, Brandy took the time to meet with the ECN Professional Development Committee (of which I am a member) to ensure she was clear on the workshop goals and that she had a thorough understanding of her audience. She provided a detailed workshop schedule well in advance, which allowed us to recruit over 100 attendees.
Brandy’s attitude and delivery was warm and inviting, providing a comfortable atmosphere that encouraged our attendees to ask questions and kept them all engaged. As the workshop was wrapping up, Brandy went above and beyond by providing her contact info to all of our attendees and encouraged them to reach out to her if they have any more questions as they begin applying what they’ve learned to their resumes and LinkedIn profiles.
Since the conclusion of the workshop, my e-mail has been flooded with gratitude from the workshop attendees. All of us on the NASA Ames ECN Professional Development Committee are very happy with our choice to hire Brandy.

"DEFINING YOUR VALUE PROPOSITION" WORKSHOP
"A powerful experience."
I attended a workshop of Brandy's at UC Davis on Designing Your Future. It was a powerful experience that helped us understand our innate design and build a vision for our future.
This is one of my favorite workshops I've ever attended. Unlike so many other workshops, this was dynamic and fun. She kept it interesting by changing up the format throughout the day, leading us through a presentation, a group discussion, and an exercise that everyone enjoyed. There were so many takeaways from the day and I left the workshop feeling energized about my future.
Brandy is an engaging facilitator and skillfully guided us to discover insights as individuals and as a group. Highly recommend!

"MOTIVATION BOOST: A CLEAR VISION" WORKSHOP
"Informative, helpful, fun, and relaxing."
Brandy led a retreat for our chapter of around 75 people and everyone loved it! She structured the day around our specific needs after having multiple check-ins with me beforehand to design our event. Everything ran smoothly. Most of the workshop was centered around envisioning our ideal future and how to reach that ideal, including addressing what obstacles may be in our way.
Not only was the workshop informative and helpful, it was also fun and relaxing. She had a portion of the day where we completed a painting exercise that incorporated the themes we were discussing that everyone absolutely loved! She formatted the day to accommodate our larger size by hosting both intimate breakout sessions and group discussions.
Multiple people came up to me after the event saying it was their favorite retreat they’ve attended! I’d recommend her services to anyone looking to further their personal/professional goals in a fun and holistic way.

Workshop Inspiration: Skills
Burnout is an occupational hazard that occurs when stress accumulates, unmanaged. We'll discuss reducing stressors through boundaries, margins, and buffers. We'll also explore six evidence-based methods of stress release and practical ways to implement them in your life.
Thoughtful management of your time and tasks is essential skill for a well-designed life. In this workshop, we'll apply evidence-based methods for time and task management. We'll touch on concepts from NYTimes Bestsellers: Atomic Habits by James Clear and Deep Work by Cal Newport.
What is a value proposition? Think of it as the takeaway you want an employer or client to have about you. Together, we'll walk through the three steps to define your personal brand and how to share it with others. By putting in the work to define your value, you make it easy for others to understand.
Workshop Inspiration: culture
Want to help your group cultivate healthier styles of communication and encourage trust-filled relationships? In this workshop, we'll explore the neuroscience of trust. We can also leverage my background in group dynamics and mediation to encourage effective problem-solving.
Let's define what's essential, unleash greater efficacy, and improve the quality of our work and lives. From Greg McKeown's Essentialism: "It is about making the wisest possible investment of your time and energy in order to operate at our highest point of contribution by doing only what is essential.” It's all about less but better.
This workshop is designed to support parents who are new to parenthood, new to their roles, transitioning back to work after time away, or just wanting to find a better balance. As parents, we're constantly learning and evolving. How we interact with our work and lives must evolve, too.
Workshop Inspiration: life design
Life Design is about taking actionable steps to live a life aligned with your innate design, values, and priorities. We'll explore four steps to Life Design: (1) Understand your design; (2) Get clear about your vision; (3) Identify and challenge thought obstacles; and (4) Identify and overcome behavioral obstacles.
We’ll explore the fundamentals of a career transition, including whether to transition. We'll then work to understand your options, define your value, and create a transition plan. Participants will walk away with increased clarity and greater confidence in their ability to transition.
Being in control of our lives begins at micro-level with our habits. Our habits add up to create our reality. In this retreat, we'll discuss the building blocks of habit formation with tactical steps you can apply right away. We'll also discuss the evidence-based methods to break habits that don't serve us.
The next step to partner with me for your group gathering is to schedule a complimentary consultation. We can build off an idea you’ve seen here or curate something unique for your group.
