Every behavior is either an expression of power or an expression of powerlessness. Outward expression always mirrors inner experience. Complaining, blaming, and neediness is always an expression of powerlessness. If you are a leader and you want to shift the culture from a victim mindset to an empowered state, or if you simply want to expand your own sense of power, this roundtable is for you.

What To Expect

Weekly Call
On our weekly ZOOM calls I’ll facilitate some discussion and teach a skill or concept.

If you have a success you’d like to share, you will also have a chance to speak. If you want spot coaching on the live calls, we’ll make time for that.

Private Email Access
You have access to me via email during the work week. I’ll be answering emails from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM (CST) every day. If you want email coaching, you need to use email. I’ll get your permission to share anything that is shared at the virtual round table, otherwise my advice will be private. Please whitelist my email address marlene@marlenechism.com

Private Consulting and Coaching
If you request advice or some coaching, I’ll give what I can by email. You can decide to try the ideas, or let the ideas inspire you in a different direction.

On the Spot Celebrations and Coaching
If you are courageous you can share your challenges on the group calls, as well as any successes you have.

Inspired (but Sporadic) Group Email Communications
Because this is a pilot, you may receive a few group emails where I share some insights or resources. You are welcome to give me your feedback about what’s working or not working. My intention is to support your growth, not overwhelm you, give you “homework” or tell you what to do.  LOL!. You already know what works for you and what you are willing to try.


Is this Leadership Roundtable for You?

  • There’s a hint of “victim mindset” in culture
  • Your open door has become a revolving door
  • You want to decrease blame and finger pointing
  • You are tired of playing verbal ping pong
  • You want to increase teamwork
  • You want to promote personal responsibility
  • You want to expand your own sense of power

As with all round-table events, the conversations that arise are co-created by participants. In this series, Marlene presents an overview of the Coaching to Empowerment Model to help you clarify the outcome, and avoid the distractions and verbal ping pong that often occurs in coaching conversations.
