RFL Mastermind is a five-month women’s collaborative leadership program. In RFL Mastermind, a group of 12-14 women come together (facilitated by the preeminent coach & facilitator Nancy Fredericks) to support one another to stand strong, yet remain caring – Be a leader, and serve others – Ask for help, and offer help to others – Share our wisdom, and accept the wisdom of others. We believe that connecting to ourselves, and our community, is fundamental to flourishing leadership.

The agenda of RFL Mastermind belongs to the participants as we create a career – and life – that thrives today and far into the future. Together we hone our business and personal skills by challenging each other to create goals, brainstorm ideas, and support each other with honesty, respect, and compassion.

How does it work?

Mastermind, a collective leadership program with 12-14 individuals, means that everyone has a voice and participation is key. RFL Mastermind uncovers hidden patterns that keep leaders from getting the results they want and that which they are capable of.
