Michele Woodward’s Circle of 12, taught me patience, pacing, and grace under pressure. She is a true professional who helped me monetize my business. Her loving demeanor encouraged me to overcome my fears and insecurities to just do the damn thing. Since being a part of her group, I’ve welcomed new clients and booked the largest speaking engagement of my career. I also started asking for what I want while doing the work to attract it. Working with like-minded coaches during our weekly calls was immensely valuable. It taught me we all struggle with fear and insecurities, which is normal.
I can’t say enough about this amazing program that helped me authentically be me. If you’re looking to grow your business mindset, and make life-long friends; the Circle of 12 is the perfect group for you.
Dear Fellow Coaches,
It’s been a crazy year. And who knows what 2021 will bring?
You may feel isolated.
You may feel stuck, uncertain, unsure.
A lot of us are. And I have something I think will help you.
I’ve been offering my Circle of 12 program for ten years and I don’t know that there’s been a more important time for it than now.
Think about it: A supportive, non-judgmental group of coaches who will become dear friends and big boosters. A path toward increased success and fulfillment in your work.
And, me! The ability to ask me anything, learn from my mistakes (and my good stuff, too), and learn the honest truth about what works today in a coaching practice.
I know what works because I coach clients every day – people who work and deal with everything that goes along with having a job. I work with regular people – 100% referral, by the way – rather than being one of those coaches who coach coaches to coach coaches. I guess I can say that I’m a bit different than the ordinary.
And I bring all that to our Circle of 12.
For six months, we’ll meet every week in a mentored mastermind, which will be recorded for your later review. Every month you’ll have a one-on-one session with me. I will be generous with proposal and contract templates, and support you as you create pitches and offers. We’ll start with a virtual intensive which I’ve created and perfected – it really works!
Working with Michele and in Circle of 12 wasn’t just game-changing for my coaching business but for my heart and soul. Michele has an uncanny ability to see the best in people and to bring together people who complement and support each other. Through Michele’s skilled facilitation we learned and supported with each other beyond the weekly calls. Michele’s keen intuition and intellect are punctuated with laughter and provocative questions that enabled me to ask hard questions and stay accountable to my game plan for change. Advancing my business to the next stage would have been a messy process – that I may have abandoned – without Michele in my corner cheering and nudging me along.

When I think of the coaching in that first Circle of 12 – Laurie Foley, Jennifer Voss, Koren Motekaitis, Cath Duncan, Nona Jordan, Renee Sievert, Helen Samson-Mullen, Diane Hunter, Theresa Trosky, Dana Frost, Kathy Gonzales, Catherine Thorburn – and all the incredible coaches who’ve been in subsequent programs – my goodness. What they’ve created in the years since! This is what I want for you. This is what I’ll work my heart out to help you create.
Michele helped me to approach challenges with confidence. Rather than providing answers, she offered perspective and helped me to reframe situations, always empowering me to be in control. With her guidance, I learned new tools for making plans, taking action, and getting results.~ Erin Y.
