Rave Reviews as New Women in Transition Workshop Goes on Tour
March 31, 2015First stop - Chicago. Fifteen women, TTN members and guests, came out on Saturday morning to learn more about how to proactively view their own transitions.
Barbara Beizer teamed up with local Chicago Chapter member, Jan Summers to deliver this experiential, half-day workshop to 15 members and guests. Participants appreciated the structure, and their comments afterwards showed that they learned a great deal from each others’ authentic stories and insights. Several reported great relief at knowing they are not alone in this journey. Everyone walked away with a much clearer idea of their own next steps.
Thank you to chapter chairs Emma Kalaidjian and Del McCormick and their team for making this workshop possible!
The following Saturday, the Central Ohio Chapter held their premier offering of the Women in Transition Workshop at the All Life Center for Integrative Wellness for 30 women, including 5 guests. With this many women together, it was not surprising to hear a wide array of changes going on, and everyone benefitted from the enormous wisdom shared in the room during the morning.
Barbara was assisted by Facilitators Patsy Deerhake and Arlene Lynch, members of the local Ohio Chapter, as well as Carol Oswald, Chapter Leader.
“We are creating the capacity in every Chapter to deliver this TTN Signature Program, Women in Transition Workshop, Barbara reports. It’s very exciting to work with our Chapter facilitators and leaders to create follow up activities, too, such as Transition Peer Groups using the materials provided.
Patsy and Arlene scheduled a follow up meeting in two weeks and more than 80% of the participants have already signed up to come! They will be also leading other Women in Transition workshop sessions later this year.
“I love partnering with the many talented members we have in our Chapters to facilitate this Workshop. Knowing that our members find the information and experience so helpful is truly satisfying to me,” Barbara says.
With feedback like "Most professional & worthwhile event I have attended in a long, long time. Never once looked at my watch...HUGE!!" we know we are on the right track!
