CORE Friends & Family

Welcome to the information page for the new Friends and Family of CORE Leadership Circle.

This 6-month program is designed to empower the lives of those closest to our CORE community.  As such, you must be in relationship with a CORE member, alumni, or Advisory Board member to be eligible.  All relationships, from spouses, significant others, parents, siblings, adult children or friends are eligible. 


Over the years, as our CORE members have expanded their emotional intelligence and made significant changes in their lives, there has been a call for these tools & processes to be made available to those they most care about.

This program has been created to support & empower those in relationship with our CORE members who have seen the growth and development of their friends and family and would like to have that for themselves.

In this progam, you will:

  • Expand your effectiveness as you respond to the inevitable challenges of life & work.
  • Begin to understand the differences between your "inner game" (thoughts, feelings, attitudes, beliefs) and your "outer game" (actions, behaviors, results). Learn to empower your inner game to get more of what you want in your outer game.
  • Learn to create the experience of life you want. There is more to life than simply surviving or getting the "things" you think will make you happy. By moving your focus to your experience of life, you begin to move away from worry, stress, judgements, and resistance, and move toward true joy & happiness.  You can let go of the fundamental dissatisfaction with your life, and generate the experience that you want your life to be.
  • Discover your authentic power. Only through exploring your own deeper truth, can you align your actions such that you are filled with enthusiasm, purpose and meaning This is your source of authentic power, and leads to effective & meaningful action. 
  • Transform your relationship to listening and sharing your authentic truth. You will learn how to listen in a way that is transformational and how to tell the truth in any situation without generating an argument.
  • Learn skills and tools that your loved ones in the CORE Leadership Circle have learned. Having a shared mindset, skills and language with your family member or close friend will add real value to your relationship and open up meaningful dialogue.
  • Be part of a supportive Conscious Community of people committed to their own growth.

This program is an "intensive" designed to leave you with tools & processes you can use for the rest of your life.  While most programs would teach one or two of these tools, with the CORE Friends & Family program, you will explore all of these tools:


Doing vs. Being

It is common to believe that what you do matters most, but we know that your state of being is actually primary to any result.  Explore this uncommon path and experience a new kind of life - one based on your choice of who to be.

Shifting the Victim to Power Triangle

Fundamental to being human is the experience of being a victim - to your parents, your boss, circumstances, or simply life.  Your authentic power exists when you move from the Victim to Power triangle.  This framework shines new light on how you can interact in life, and be powerful in the face of any circumstance.


Generous Listening, Listening Filters, Unarguable Speaking

The "listening" module of the program offers key Transformational Listening skills, leaving you a more powerful communicator.  Through these empowering listening and speaking skills, you will know how to get more of what you desire in life, and leave others honored & appreciated in the process.

Intentional Energetic Presence® created by Anese Cavanaugh

Your energy signature has an impact on every situation in your life.  Learn the IEP Method® from the founder of this powerful framework that has transformed thousands of individuals.


Heart/Mind Coherence

Most of us experience life as a series of choices between listening to our heart or listening to our head.  When you master true heart/mind coherence, your thoughts and actions come from your most authentic core, and this sense of duality is reduced - you experience integration and ease in ways you never thought possible.

Workplace Big 5 Assessment and Coaching

This assessment, unlike so many personality tests, is not designed to tell you "who you are," it is designed to help you understand where you can best use your energy and talents, in work & life.  Susan will use her 20+ years of experience with this assessment to support you in understanding the structures of your life that can be empowered through this knowledge & implementation.  You will finally understand why some things "come easy" and others require so much effort - and be able to make changes to bring more power & ease to life.


Much more...

A lifetime of coaching, training and transformational education has empowered Susan with a nearly unlimited toolbox.  In your individual group coaching sessions, Susan will use & teach any and all processes needed to support you to create the life you truly desire.
