Sarah’s Why Behind The Boards
A 9-month facilitated experience for women, in which you will find YOUR Board — a highly-curated peer group designed to deliver each member a personal Board of Directors, propelling them to the next level of their potential.
A curated group of relationships enriched by an “old friend” feeling, but absent the agreeable instinct; an advisor, but with more mutuality who is also a coach, demonstrating and accepting of vulnerability.
A new kind of peer experience for women based on the idea that revolutionary growth happens in revolutionary relationships.
Culminating with a retreat to Zion National Park to fortify the work executed with your Board.
We designed The Board as an entirely new category of female relationship & peer experience. We all have friends, colleagues, mentors, advisors, therapists — we know what those relationships are like. The Board is none of those. It’s a highly-curated peer group of women, developed over a 9-month facilitated experience, who serve as each others’ Personal Board of Directors, propelling to the next level of their potential.
In our overly-connected, yet disconnected, modern world, we are hungry for authentic connection. We often seek that connection in friends, spouses, mentors — the kinds of relationships that we see modeled for us in society. And yet, as women, we find ourselves craving a kind of relationship that we can’t exactly describe & aren’t able to find — an “old friend” feeling, but absent the agreeable instinct; an advisor, but with more mutuality who is also a coach, demonstrating & accepting of vulnerability. What is this kind of relationship? Until now, it hasn’t existed in any systematic way.
Enter, The Board where you will develop this relationship with the women who will become the kind of female transformational partners you seek — the women who will serve as your Personal Board of Directors. They will be invested in your success, not threatened by the “new you”; they will accept you completely & challenge you to become the person they know you can be.
The Board is for women who crave depth, joy, & purpose; who are willing to take a stand for their own potential & for the potential of others. If you’re seeking a group of women who will support you in a way that is both accepting & challenging; if you’re hungry to uplevel your leadership, so your life can be the truest expression of who you’re here to become; if you’re willing to double down & commit resources in your own growth & in the growth of others, then The Board is for you. At SG & Co, we believe the greatest growth happens in the context of others, so we’ve created a new kind of peer experience for women based on the idea that revolutionary growth happens in revolutionary relationships.
A 4-month facilitated experience designed by a Mother, for Mothers.
The Mother Board delivers your very own personal board of like-minded female warriors who are 100% invested in you accessing your full potential in all areas of your life. The Mother Board is a new kind of mom tribe.
Together in our virtual Boardroom, we’ll activate your leadership in the context of this fierce support so you can face these challenges and unearth these desires in the fields of our lives where they matter most–relationships, ambition, health, finances. Thus, allowing you to live your desired legacy, today.
The next Mother Board starts the week of September 7, completing the week of December 14. Enrollment closes September 4th. It includes eight, 90-minute sessions and 24-hour access to a private FB Group for the entire group to discuss accountability questions, receive and provide support from your Mother Board team, and further engagement and support with Sarah.
The Mother Board is a 4-month, facilitated group experience similar in structure to The Board for Professionals, but customized for Mothers only. As moms, we know the importance of having a solid tribe. You’ve probably built a network of mom friends that you turn to for advice about work, schooling, and playdates for your kids. You’ve found moms with similar beliefs about parenting and politics, with whom you can commiserate, share struggles, and maybe the occasional cocktail. You may even have mentors, partners, therapists. While those relationships are GOLD, The Mother Board is none of those. The Mother Board is about redefining relationships between women who are mothers to forge a collective that will take a stand for you experiencing your most potent self.
In these unprecedented times, Mothers are being stretched in ways that we never dreamed of.
In the midst of all this, we’ve discovered many wonderful outlets for Mothers to gather, share, and collectively exhale. But often, all of this gathering, sharing and exhaling does not provide the relief and connection we’d hoped for. In spite of our engagement in a wide variety of groups and communities, we found ourselves craving a kind of relationship with fellow mothers that we couldn’t exactly describe and weren’t able to find.
Enter The Mother Board, where you will develop precisely this kind of indescribable, facilitated relationship with other Moms that we ourselves were craving. Women who have the ‘old friend’ feeling, but without the tendency toward agreement and commiseration. Women who will accept you completely and challenge you to become the person they know you can be. Women who will invest in your success. Women who will tell you the truth not because they are experts, but because they are peers, equals, fellow mothers. The Mother Board will give you a group of women who will serve as your Personal Board of Directors–the female transformational partners that you seek.
The Mother Board is for Mothers who are 100% committed to stepping into leadership and responsibility for their own life experience. This group is for Mothers who are done hearing themselves martyr, who are done feeling disempowered and lonely. The Mother Board is for Moms who desire confidence in who they are, clarity about what they want, and a greater impact on the world around them.
If you’re seeking greater connection with yourself, deeper intimacy with your partner, a sense of play and wonder that is balanced with calm and grace, we invite you to join The Mother Board.
You must be willing to take a stand for your own potential as well as the potential of other Mothers. If you’re seeking a group of women that will both accept and challenge you; if you’re hungry to uplevel your leadership and point your life towards the truest expression of who you’re here to become; if you’re willing to double down and commit resources into your own growth and that of others, then The Mother Board is for you.
At SG & Co, we believe the greatest growth happens in the context of others, so we create new kinds of peer experiences based on the idea that revolutionary growth happens in revolutionary relationships.
The Mother Board is a 4-month peer experience for a group of up to 10 mothers. The 2020 Mother Board curriculum runs Sept 7 – Dec 14, 2021 & includes progressively-designed content + coaching calls (2x /mo.), a private FB group where you can access support from Sarah and your fellow Board Members.
The Mother Board is Sarah’s most accessible group program and is in high demand due to the impact of the programming and the low price point. If you’re at all interested, email Jayme@sarahgibbons.co to schedule a conversation with Sarah. It will fill up extremely quickly.
FAQ’s that we know you’ll ask:
|The Mother Board||The Board|
|Structure||A 4-month experience for 10 women who are ALL mothers.||A 9-month intensive for a cohort of 8 women.|
|Content||The Mother Board’s curriculum is created based on the unique challenges and experiences Mothers share around activating the depth of their leadership in all areas of their lives.||The Board is focused on leadership as it relates to living your full potential as a driven women in all areas of your life.|
How can I join a 90-minute call in the middle of the day twice a month?
We get it. We never said growth is easy. However, we do know that what matters most to us, we make time for. What we also know is that Mothers prioritize themselves last, and that certainly isn’t the legacy you want to be living. Like anything, you have to want it enough to actually do something about it.
With 10 people on a video call, will I get coached personally?
YES! Sarah brilliantly will ensure that everyone is coached 1:1 during the time together. There is also huge value in watching others be coached. Sarah facilitates in a way that engages everyone’s leadership whether you’re the one being coached or holding space for a fellow Mother Board member.
What kind accountability will there be?
Sarah will ask each Board member to submit answers to three questions each week. Taking no more than 5 minutes, these create accountability, transparency, and an opportunity for support within the FB Group, not only by Sarah, but also by your fellow Board members.
How does this differ from The Board?
First, everyone is a Mother on The Mother Board, and therefore bonded by the very fact that they are responsible for another being(s). Secondly, Sarah has created themes for each coaching session based on the biggest challenges Mothers face and will be specifically supporting the women around their leadership as it relates to that area of your life or theme.
More testimonials from current Board members:
“Working with Sarah and the other women on THE BOARD has been an incredible gift. I have grown and expanded in ways that have had a wonderful ripple effect in my life. I feel more connected with my true self and am truly living from a place of possibility. None of this would have been possible without the investment I made in myself by joining THE BOARD.”
