BREAKING BIG: THE WORKSHOPS

Systemic Facilitating and Coaching

In your own work as a facilitator, Breaking Big can show you how to identify, break and resolve patterns that don’t serve and consciously create patterns for success. Workshops and trainings will teach you the principles that govern all living systems. You’ll learn to examine systemic sentences and their effects on success or failure, and learn to facilitate through dimensional mapping, accessing multi-generations in organizations, roles and individuals.

For Facilitators

Working with a whole system in mind creates healthy workplaces and individuals. You’ll learn to identify the issue, see the patterns and experientially test solutions in one sitting.

For Coaches, consultants and organizational development specialists

Often when working with your client, you seem to hit a brick wall. It’s usually because you’re only dealing with their professional system. That’s only half the story. Their family systems are their primary pattern makers. Without this information you may be flying blind. By learning to access and align their professional and personal systems, insight and breakthrough performance are achieved.

Organizations and HR

For professional development or when staff members hit a brick wall, systemic facilitation and coaching offers a deep, respectful and lasting way to shift from what is to what’s possible.

It’s personal, too.

Workshops are designed to take you beyond what is to what’s possible. What’s your single biggest issue? What’s keeping you stuck? Working through this experiential workshop format, you’ll understand why you’re stuck, what the gift is and how to use it with your own unique voice. Create lasting strength and direction.

Bespoke workshops are available.

EMOTIONAL DNA AND YOUR GENEALOGY:
BREAK THE CODE, BE THE CHANGE

1-Day Workshop at Disney

How to use your ancestry to change your life now–and for generations to come.

Your genealogy is more than a record of where you come from or who you’re related to. It’s part of your Emotional DNA, the inherited blueprint for how, why and where you belong. Tracing your ancestry or physical DNA tells part of your story. Emotional genetics holds the clues to how and why you struggle–and how you can succeed. Knowing what lives in your lineage can profoundly change your life. Get ready to decode your Emotional DNA and recode your future through interactive genealogy.

WHY WHERE YOU COME FROM MATTERS

Genealogy sites like ancestry.com and 23andme.com can show how we’re connected. Exploring your Emotional DNA, you’ll see why these connections matter. Because decisions made by our ancestors can shape who we are for generations, a conscious awareness of what lives in our family systems allows us to stop our patterns of limitation, sadness and struggle, shaping the path to happiness and success.

EMOTIONAL DNA + GENEALOGY = CHANGEMAKER

Ask yourself what will I pass on to my children, my community? How will I change my family tree? Am I the change my future family needs? Experiencing and seeing how we relate in our families in a dimensional way creates deep insights and shifts. We begin to understand our frustrations and longings at a profound level. Once you understand what lives in your Emotional DNA, you can consciously rewrite your future–and the future of those who come after you.

LEARN WHAT TO DO WITH WHAT YOU’VE GOT

In this interactive genealogy workshop, we’ll dimensionally explore your Emotional DNA and see how it links to your family line through your successes, failures, and wherever you feel stuck. You’ll learn the tools, strategies and family constellations to begin your own life-changing journey. You’ll discover what’s trying to emerge through you and for your future, and see that profound and lasting shifts are possible.

WHAT IF YOU DON’T KNOW YOUR FAMILY STORY?

Even if you don’t know your family history, come and discover how you may be unconsciously connecting with what came before you. Learn how to break the cycle for yourself, and generations to come.

By the end of this workshop you’ll be able to:

  • Understand how you belong in your family–even if you don’t know them and how it affects success, self-worth, perceived limits, relationships and even finances.
  • See how to identify patterns of stuck-ness and reframe them into patterns of success.
  • Literally change your position from stuck to moving.

What you’ll take away:

  • A new understanding of how events from generations past create patterns that affect your success in all areas of your life.
  • Knowing how you can break negative patterns or amplify positive ones so you pass a different Emotional DNA to the next generation.
  • The ability to change and choose bigger than your current reality, see new possibilities, have new emotions and achieve new outcomes, being the change agent consistently.

Professional Series

Emotional DNA Professional Series for Certification

Become the biggest change creator your clients will ever work with

In this new experiential 4-part training series, I’ll teach you the tools and strategies to go deeper, faster with your clients to uncover obstacles and illuminate possibilities. By doing your own work and creating change from within, you’ll learn how to create profound and lasting change in the lives and businesses of your clients–in a way that’s fulfilling and inspiring.

Emotional DNA is your greatest gift.

Just as our physical DNA is inherited, our emotional genetics also get passed down from generation to generation. Success, failure, love and money can be linked back to our ancestral family system. And if a limiting pattern lives in that family system, it can show up in your personal and business life. Does that mean we’re doomed to repeat the past? No, the past only lives in you as a repetitive pattern until you see it, know what you want, choose something different and allow yourself to go all the way with your choice. Emotional DNA can be rewired. I’ll show you how to identify limiting patterns and establish new patterns of success and fulfillment for your clients so you can guide them to lasting transformation.

Find more meaning, depth and satisfaction in your work.

When you work in the field of human potential, transforming leaders into visionary rock stars feels extraordinary. Because when most people feel stuck, they think they’re a limited edition, incapable of becoming big. It’s our job to show clients the mindful path to unlimited self-worth. And whenever you help someone identify a behavior pattern that lives in their family system–good or bad–it’s transformative. You can literally see profound shift take root as they realize how this multigenerational pattern has affected their own life and use it in order to ignite a new pattern. To watch the visceral, human reaction as your client becomes unstuck, is pure magic.

New format for deeper learning, faster breakthroughs and lasting change.

My new Emotional DNA Professional Series for certification is a streamlined, 4-part workshop format designed to help you access a more complete picture of your client with a fuller understanding of the whole person. You’ll learn to quickly discern behavior patterns, see opportunities and establish direction so you can and begin the work of opening them up to the next level with steps that are believable and achievable. With this level of training, you’ll be able to guide your clients to life-shifting breakthroughs and lasting change like no other in your field.
