Begin with a deep conversation for us to see if we are a good fit.
Impossible-dream clarity conversation.
Forget safe goals. Forget the probable. I challenge you to envision yourself as a leader with a strong back and a soft, open heart. What does your leadership look and feel like? What if you could get really, really clear on your aspirations, your vision, your impossible goal or dream? The scale of your company or the magnitude of your purpose? What if you could define a strategy that pulls you forward, step by step? What happens when you are happy, fulfilled and on point? What if you can discover new pathways through old issues, living into and with meaning? What if you learn innovative ways of thinking that make the unimaginable possible? As a leader you are about transformation, courage, change, boldness and vulnerability in the gap of the unknown. You can learn how to show up as you, your at your best. To accelerate greatness, or create your thriving conscious work, to foster a just and beautiful world. Contact me for a deep conversation. I only have limited space.
Some of you have asked me to offer a hybrid of mentoring, coaching, consulting for writers. Thank you! Background: As an author and writer (fiction/non-fiction; www.sophiavschweitzer.com), I have traveled the ever-changing, challenging landscape from shaping ideas to securing publishers. As such, I am ever grateful to the many editors/publishers/mentors over the years who all have helped me to improve my drafts, to think like a reader, to work like a writer, to enjoy the process above all. What makes a story a success? What makes you a writer? How do you complete a story and know that it is complete? How do you work with editors, your inner critic, self-edit? How do you go about finding agents or a publisher? What do you do when writer's block hits? Or doubt? We need writers and writing in this world! We need all of our creativity. Contact me for a deep conversation on this. I only have three spots available currently.
Fierce and Fearless Compassion - Freeing our Truth: A Women's Support Circle.
Women have told me, and I know from the inside out: We need circles where we as capable, extraordinary, high-performing, insanely alive, aware, abundant and like-minded women can come together in a safe space to take our insight and impact to a next level. We are women who want to know ourselves and our world and want to make a difference. We are high achievers, committed to positive change, creative, and we love fun, family, just being, play. But here are just some of the issues we struggle with: Our inner silencing and shame. Externally, society holds us back, unconsciously and consciously. We want to break the norm, and leap out of generations-old boxes, but we fear the consequences, the labels surely tossed our way when we do. And sometimes, shocking ourselves, we as women compete acridly with each other, as if freedom is scarce and comes in limited supplies. There is something else: What bonds us is a deep inner knowing rooted in the power of feminine leadership and the truth of belonging. What bonds us that we want to explore all these issues deeply. This stuff goes so far beyond women only, in fact... A huge shift happening in all human beings, regardless of gender identification. But first, we have to know and own our ground.
Our circle meets monthly via a zoom video call. We listen and share stories. I teach or highlight worldview distinctions addressing specific challenges that have come up for us. We share tools and resources. And I offer plenty of "hot-seat" coaching of course. Each woman in the circle also works at least once privately with me. Via our private chat room, you'll receive in between support as much as you are drawn to. It's liberating and exhilarating. It's by invitation only. And the circles are small, limited to eight women. If you are interested in joining the next circle, please contact me.

Amid our top regrets when we are dying:
"I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself."
"I wish I had let myself be happier."
Joseph Campbell: “The big question is whether you are going to be able to say a hearty ‘yes’ to your adventure.”
On solid ground.
"I never had a coach before. I never felt so embraced by a counselor before. I get choked up thinking about what a blessing you are." (D., Environmental impact sector)
“I want to share the final result of my daughter’s college planning since I brought a related topic to some of our coaching. My daughter got an acceptance notification from Harvard this morning. She will be playing ice-hockey on Harvard Crimson, the varsity team of the university, from September this year. The coaching helped my family to get this amazing result from my side.” — Eiji, Japan. (IT sector)
Space to explore on profound levels.
"I began my coaching uncertain if I was a good candidate. My life was in good shape. I was not unhappy. I had no specific goals in mind. But I also knew that something powerful in me longed for greater expression. With gentle guidance, deep listening, truthfulness and patience, Sophie gave me space to explore this on profound levels. She helped me to discover greater satisfaction and a calm contentment that I hadn’t known or understood before. I am truly grateful and gratified to have worked with Sophie, and urge others to do so, too.” — Alan G., Hawaii. (Writer)
Able to find answers
“Having moved from Brussels to Toronto end of 2016, it’s great to have Sophie as a coach. Through her experience, true wish to support my progression, and powerful questioning I am able to find personal or professional answers to questions that might keep me back. I can only recommend working with her.” — Hugh, Toronto, Canada. (sales)
For anyone in transition.
"Sophie, your quick and complete follow up after each session was so helpful to recap what territory we had covered, and gave me incentive to follow through on my initiatives. Sometimes my action was immediate! I got a lot from working with you because you had such a gentle way of helping me dig deep into my values, and showed how I could focus on making small steps to tweak one role in my life at a time. It was fascinating to see that it rippled positively into other aspects on the ‘wheel’. This is powerful work for anyone at a ‘transition’ in life, or feeling stuck, or battling with procrastination. The work helped me get clear on what I wanted and steps needed to get there. Much gratitude for your deep wisdom and listening skills. I’ll be back for more sometime in the future." — Elaine, Hawaii.
