Event description


Olive Grove is excited to offer this workshop specifically for women of influence, who want to have a positive impact on the world.

An important note here: We have found that many women do not readily claim that they are “of influence” and thus would instantly think that this does not apply to them. And we want to challenge that right off the bat. If you are a woman in a position to impact employees or volunteers, an organization’s work, a family’s values, the way money moves in society, the direction or policies of a community, the efforts of a movement or group . . . then we hope you will step into the idea of embracing your role as “A Woman of Influence."

In your personal and/or professional experiences do you frequently feel . .

  • That things are happening “to” you?

  • That you have no choice or only have a limited number of poor choices to consider?

  • That you are frequently trying to influence or lead under impossible constraints?

  • That you have no control?

  • That you are a victim of circumstances that hold down your full potential?

  • That you simultaneously feel “powerless”, and yet suspicious about the idea of wielding “power”?

At Olive Grove Collective, our work is about "Changing people's perspectives of what is possible”. We offer a range of workshops, webinars, events, writings and individual coaching based on our experience that a Thriving, Purpose-Driven Leader is Skilled At:

  • Honing a clear and compelling vision

  • Anchoring to purpose and values

  • Deepening self-awareness and competencies

  • Developing a resilient mindset

  • Expanding choice and agency, and

  • Designing a high-impact plan for how these collective elements are expressed and put into action effectively

Your Results

This workshop will provide you a safe place to get curious and explore your personal relationship to:

  • How your mindset and beliefs impact our view of the choices we have.

  • How to expand your sense of possibility and options.

  • How the sense of choice relates to personal concepts of power and control — and why women frequently associate these ideas with negative connotations.

  • How addressing these areas allows you to expand your vision of what is possible — for yourself, your family and friendships, and the organizations and causes you care most about.

You may have a clear purpose and need ways to bring it more fully into expression. You may be still clarifying your core vision and values. Either way, this workshop will result in you, as a Woman of Influence, knowing how to expand your options and sense of agency, while also understanding the specific steps you can take to increase self-awareness and make the shift in mindset required to do so.

Should you choose to continue and deepen your journey, Olive Grove offers additional workshops, webinars, and/or personal coaching will allow you to continue to advance along other areas of this paradigm.

The Details:

Held at Olive Grove’s beautiful 15-acre Resilience Center in the Santa Cruz Mountains, 10 minutes from downtown Los Gatos, this workshop will allow you to experience an inspired setting for your personal exploration.

Hosted by Emily Sterling, who has over 25 years of experience in coaching and advising some of the most influential philanthropists and foundations, board members, CEOs, and policymakers who are working toward deeper social impact. www.theolivegrove.com

Kendra McKinley to attend as Artist in Residence and co-facilitate the final portion of the day. She is a San Francisco Bay Area singer, songwriter and bandleader whose songs burst with color, wonder, sensuality and wit. Finger painting with the sounds of chamber pop, jazz, soul and psychedelia, McKinley draws from a deep well of empathy. Whether she’s performing solo with a guitar and a looping pedal, fronting a full funk band, or collaborating with artists both local and around the globe, McKinley’s confident, honeyed voice enacts a gravitational pull on all who hear it.
