GATHER for HER with Tina

Tina Ruysseveldt was welcomed to GATHER for HER, a weekly conversation that answers the need for leaders who can operate within a different framework and capabilities. An up-level of perspective with a responsive skillset and a clear process to make decisions is required for this new terrain. These are wisdom gathering conversations following the PowHERhouse FireCircle model of group listening for HER.

The PowHERhouse Team recently enjoyed Tina's 'Best Version of Ourselves' virtual lunchtime powHERhour! As a team, it's great to come together for an inspirational, make-you-think session that reminds us not to take our lives or each other for granted. Tina tackles a hard topic - SECRETS - in her session, which I really appreciated.

Let's start talking about what's really weighing us down, honestly and truthfully.

Let's start talking about all we need to release in order to soar but individually and collectively. Thank you, Tina!

I had the pleasure of attending one of Tina's workshops with my team at PowHERhouse Impact Media - It was the perfect way to spend a lunch hour. Tina openly and honestly shared pieces of her own personal story with us, creating a safe, trusting space for everyone to ask questions and share thoughts. Learning about Tina's LiveWell Recipe is a game changer, it is a simple, easily implementable, and super effective way to shift the way I move through my day ensuring I am always focused on allowing my best self to emerge. Tina's mantra "Do what I can, with what I have, where I am, today." will be something I remind myself of constantly. Thank you Tina!
