A 9-month Mentorship, Training and Mastermind With Top Evolutionary Leaders
Registration Closed

Are you ready to take your leadership and life’s work to the next level?

Do you desire to connect with other empowered women in a co-creative setting who can help you make your full vision a reality?

Do want to use your unique gifts to make a profound positive impact on the planet?

Are you inspired to become more actively engaged in creating a world that’s aligned with your values, launching an innovative project, or starting a business that can shift things for the better?

If you answered YES! to any of these questions, you’re an emerging “Feminine Leader of the Shift” — a woman who wants to lead in a more feminine way that’s heart-centered and effective, spiritually-based and practical, philanthropic and successful. And our world desperately needs YOU!

Join us, along with a select group (only 40 spots!) of other powerful feminine leaders, who also believe it’s time for women to step fully into leadership at all level.

Unprecedented Opportunities for Women in Leadership


We’ve reached an incredible turning point in our human history... where the need to embrace the feminine, especially in leadership, has never been greater. This integration represents a vital evolutionary step for women.

In the United States, especially following the recent elections, we’re witnessing a rising wave of women coming forward and stepping into leadership roles at an unprecedented rate.

Some women are taking an active role in championing causes they’re passionate about or volunteering for local organizations where they believe they can make a difference. Others are ready to answer the call of sacred activism, community organizing or running for office.

In the marketplace, women are seeking roles where they can have greater impact — personally, professionally and for the good of the planet. And many are choosing to launch or expand their own businesses in alignment with this new paradigm.

No matter how this impulse is being ignited within you... the mentors, coaches and guest faculty in The Shift Leadership Training for Women will guide you on your unfolding path toward feminine leadership.

We at The Shift Network, along with Visionary Change Agent and Master Leadership Facilitator, Sherri Lassila, feel that the most important way we can support women to fulfill their highest calling (and make OUR contribution to this critical paradigm shift) is to specifically design this year’s training to equip and empower women so that they can step fully into leadership roles at every level.

Feminine Leadership With Soul


If you are seeking to fulfill your highest potential, learning to embody your full feminine leadership is key.

Powerful feminine leadership turns dreamers into visionary entrepreneurs. It’s time to translate your soul’s vision into tangible reality and move from the status quo to a new reality where you’re truly soaring.

Your feminine leadership has the power to ignite transformation on every level, catalyze those closest to you and connect you to allies in our global community.

Whether you’re well established and working with a large team or a solopreneur in the early stages of a launching a startup, nonprofit or NGO... our seasoned leadership mentors will help you discover how to lead in a way that’s deeply fulfilling, financially abundant and in service to the world.

You’ll discover how you can become more clear, confident, committed, aligned, focused and UNSTOPPABLE as you step into your next level of leadership and life’s work — so YOU can expand your impact and influence as a Shift Leader and unlock your personal and professional leadership potential.

A Collaborative Co-creative Community Invested in YOUR Success

In contemplating your path ahead... you may feel a bit daunted. But if you’re serious about playing a role in shifting the paradigm and becoming a more powerful leader yourself — or simply taking the first steps on your leadership journey — you’ll want to surround yourself with a tribe of like-minded individuals, leaders who’ve gone before you and can act as your coaches, mentors and guides.

They’ll help you release your limitations and play a bigger game, aligned with the deepest intentions of your heart and soul.


In The Shift Leadership Training for Women, you’ll be mentored, supported and empowered by some of the most esteemed leaders and leadership coaches in the world, along with a select group of distinct guest faculty.

You’ll have unlimited access to the world’s top evolutionary leaders — including transformational authors, conscious business leaders, social entrepreneurs, environmental stewards, policy developers, sacred activists and more. They’ll share their expert insights and proven practices to empower you on your unfolding leadership journey (all in one training!).

During this comprehensive 9-month mentorship, designed to fully equip you on your path of feminine leadership, you’ll be guided step-by-step through interactive sessions, exercises and coaching (one-on-one and small group) to move you from dream to reality, concept to market, mission to manifestation.

You’ll be uplifted by our team’s devotion to seeing you fulfill your destiny — and they know what’s possible when a vision like YOUR OWN is manifested in the world!

Plus, not only will you receive expert guidance, you’ll be networking with an incredible caliber of powerful, conscious women. You’ll be learning and growing together inside a collaborative, co-creative community where you’ll have an opportunity to both give and receive wisdom.

With exclusive access to your Shift Leadership mentors, the resources, coaching, training and circle of support, you’ll take a quantum leap in your leadership capacity.

It’s been designed for women who want to live on purpose and have a greater impact in the world through their life and their work.

Take a Quantum Leap in Your Feminine Leadership


You can’t unleash your FULL leadership potential alone... you’ll need collaborators, structures, practices and a network that meets you where you are and supports you to the next level. Plus... you need to develop new leadership capacities and skills.

The best leadership development is experiential, action-oriented and integrative, intentionally designed to guide you from where you are to where you want to be.

The Shift Leadership Training for Women features 4 Key Pillars of Leadership. The content is not taught or experienced in a linear sequence, but rather woven throughout the 9-month mentorship.

Detailed Curriculum


Pillar I: The Inner Game of Feminine Leadership
Unleashing Your True Purpose, Power & Flow


Most of us have inherited a more masculine model of “success” from our family, our culture, our colleagues and friends. But as many women have followed that roadmap to success, it often has NOT resulted in a life that feels fully aligned with our deepest heart and soul. So we begin Pillar I by inviting you to redefine success, leadership and power for yourself, envisioning a world where you (and others) can truly thrive.

From there, you’ll need to align your leadership and your work with your deepest values and greatest gifts. You’ll need to stand in your authentic power and presence, so others will be inspired to support you. To support this unfolding, we’ll be using two proven processes to help you align more consistently with your essence and purpose.

And as you rise to the next level of leadership, you’ll find that you are continually required to evolve, expand your comfort zone and transcend your inner barriers to success. You have probably already done tremendous inner work to liberate yourself from conditioned ways of being, so you’ll continue to be supported in moving even further beyond self doubt. As a result, you’ll activate your authentic confidence, more completely recognize your full value, and realign with what matters most deeply to you.

Guest faculty Tim Kelley will play a key role in this pillar, helping you create a more consistent and reliable connection with your source of higher guidance. With that connection in place, you can ongoingly access intuitive wisdom and download “just in time” information about the next steps for unfolding your true purpose. Tim will join the program LIVE to personally coach you, and his methods will become part of our learning community and ongoing curriculum.

In this pillar, you’ll:

  • Redefine success, leadership and power for yourself and our world
  • Align your life’s work with your higher guidance and true purpose
  • Understand your unique zones of genius, empowering you to lead from strength and confidence
  • Move beyond your inner glass ceiling and breakthrough habitual patterns
  • Connect to your intuitive guidance and make decisions in alignment with your deepest vision
  • Align more fully with the creative forces of life to experience greater synchronicity and flow
  • Enhance your authentic confidence and more fully “own your value”
  • Unleash greater power and flow as you put your purpose into action
  • Unhook from the voice of your inner critic and overcome self-doubt so you can unleash greater power — especially in new and challenging situations
  • Transform your relationship with yourself to one of self-love, trust and confidence

Pillar II: Fulfilling Your Vision
Taking Your Soul’s Mission From Idea to Reality


This part of the journey is all about developing a compelling vision that expresses who and what you stand for, and then translating it into a specific project with ongoing coaching.

From there, step-by-step, you’ll be supported in taking action on your vision — which will require mastering practical skills to turn your dream into reality. You’ll take inspired actions to stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone and make meaningful progress toward manifesting your vision.

As you move into your chosen project, you’ll invariably face issues of limited time and resources, while also wanting to maintain a sense of balance in your life. So you’ll discover principles and practices for effectively managing your precious hours and finances. You’ll also learn to establish systems for optimum success.

In addition, we’ll show you a proven methodology for navigating day-to-day challenges and conflicts, as well as bigger decisions and opportunities — in a way that maintains consistent authentic alignment, and updates your “inner GPS” as you go.

This powerful process integrates best practices from mindfulness, emotional intelligence, transforming limiting beliefs, and a wide variety of healing and coaching modalities into an easy-to-use method.

In this pillar, you’ll:

  • Take “Inspired Aligned Action Leaps” to bring your vision into reality
  • Engage in rapid experimentation and be willing to learn from your mistakes and do things differently
  • Respond effectively to feedback and emerging conditions, while staying true to yourself and your dreams
  • Operationalize new integrated methods, mindsets and ways of being and doing
  • Make choices that are fully aligned with your Essential Self, deeper values, inner wisdom and intuitive knowing
  • Stretch into bold inspired action that expands your comfort zone and reinforces new ways of being
  • Balance your wellbeing and self-care as you expand your work
  • Learn to use your time more strategically and productively and balance competing commitments
  • Navigate more skillfully through uncertainty and change to recover more quickly
  • Partner with the unknown on a deeper level, suspending the need to know everything so you can uncover new creative solutions

Pillar III: Impact, Influence & Interconnection
Building Relational Intelligence to Lead Others With Ease


This pillar focuses on how you’re leading and relating with others. Relationships are a key ingredient of leadership, and many aspects of what you’ll want to do in the world happen in and through relationship with others. So you’ll learn to relate in a way that deepens your connection with others and also expands your impact and influence. As a result, you can inspire others, co-create and find synergy and mutuality.

That said, relationships often involve conflict. And in the face of conflict, you may lose connection with your center and then block access to your full power and flow. In these situations, you may have a tendency to over-compromise or have difficulty saying no. You may come on too strong and then find you are unable to access the full wisdom and potential of others.

So you’ll discover how you can be connected with others in a way that naturally brings forth your fullest creative potential while also calling forth the genius of others. And as you bring out the best in each other, co-creativity and synergy can thrive! You’ll begin to develop networks of highly developed people who inspire your highest potential.

You’ll also learn to stay true to yourself in the face of conflict or challenge. You’ll practice navigating emotions — your own as well as those around you. You’ll discover how to respond skillfully to what’s needed in the moment.

Finally, you’ll practice a higher order of human relating that’s possible among conscious evolutionaries. As we recognize our inherent connectedness and learn to harness the power of the relational field, we unleash greater than imagined possibilities.

In this pillar, you’ll:

  • Expand your impact and influence with others, including calling forth their genius and higher potential
  • Harness the power of “Generative Communication” and “Powerful Relating” so your relationships are empowering rather than draining
  • Transform patterns that have held back your full leadership potential with others (including perfectionism, over-accommodating, people-pleasing, undervaluing your work and more)
  • Discover powerful ways to transform disagreements using deep listening and transparent, vulnerable, authentic sharing
  • Clear and prevent blame, resentment and guilt, keeping a clear relational field
  • Practice setting clear boundaries with others and making clear requests
  • Build relationships of higher integrity and trust
  • Practice the art of inspiring and calling forth the genius, higher potential and commitment in your co-creators
  • Learn to relate from your “soul essence” to find greater synergy and co-creativity with others
  • Connect deeply and authentically with like-minded women, inspiring and supporting each other as you express your purpose more fully

Pillar IV: Leading the Shift
Embodying a New Possibility for Yourself & Our World


As an evolutionary leader, you want more than just being successful in the cultures and structures that exist — you want to shape the world in alignment with your true wisdom and values. It’s our mission to consciously build a healthier and more sustainable culture, workplace and world, rather than remaining unconsciously limited and pulled off-center by what we’ve inherited.

This kind of leadership requires new ways of thinking, decision-making, action and collaboration. We need to become consistent models of the changes we want to see and consciously design “micro-cultures” — prototypes of the world we want to create. We need to harness all the resources at our disposal — our time, our talents, our financial resources, our “human networks,” our political capital — in service of our greater vision.

Given that collaboration is a key to success in today’s world, you’ll discover how to build partnerships that are truly effective — leveraging the unique genius of each player. You’ll also experience exciting and powerful breakthroughs around your vision when we explore practices together as an “evolutionary community.”

Finally, this module will give you a chance to integrate all of your learning from this program so you can expand and replicate this kind of evolutionary partnership, community and culture going forward — in your life, your workplace and the world.

In this pillar, you’ll:

  • Expand your skills and capacity to be a high-impact cultural change agent — helping to model a new paradigm of leadership where we can all fully thrive
  • Discover how to harness greater collaboration and community building to unleash the power of our collective field... for your individual and shared missions
  • Develop collaborative practices as an evolutionary community, staying in consistent alignment with our true gifts, deepest values and fullest power
  • Understand why a “field of empowered relationships” is required to become a high-impact evolutionary leader, and how to create a new level of partnership that catalyzes your higher potential and supports your vision
  • Expand your network to include people who both stretch and support you, as well as those who mentor and sponsor your work in the world
  • Create an upward spiral of success by forming your own personal advisory board, as well as a mastermind circle that inspires you to constantly uplevel your game
  • Clarify how your vision ties into a larger “Shift” you want to catalyze on our planet, and align it with your economic, social and environmental goals
  • Use appreciative inquiry skills to draw out the collective wisdom of a group and advance a shared vision
  • Learn collaborative leadership methods and skills to partner more effectively with others
  • Understand the best practices of higher consciousness organizations, and how you might apply them to your work

Two Intimate Retreats in 2017
April 10-13 & December 2-5 in Petaluma, California


Two in-person retreats will build on what you’ll discover in the 4 Pillars, providing a place for learning and an opportunity to drop into a deep space of collective presence where our higher potentials and visions can emerge with greater clarity.

During these intimate gatherings, you’ll bond with and receive deep support from like-minded evolutionaries. You’ll practice a higher consciousness way of relating that allows you to feel profoundly seen and calls you and others to the next level growth and leadership.

These retreats will combine meditation, movement, nature, experiential exercises, deep reflection, bonding, ritual and practical skills and process to expand your impact and influence in the world.

In the April Retreat, you’ll experience a deepening process to further crystallize your vision and project, and your next steps for making it real. You’ll practice articulating your gifts, what you stand for and your emerging vision and project. You’ll receive the kind of transformational feedback to improve both your project ideas and your skills in presenting them.

You’ll also experience and learn how to create a group field of high resonance and wholehearted trust — a kind of unity that also enhances and requires the unique contribution of each individual. Finally, you’ll explore how to take the practices of retreat into your daily life at home to nurture your fullest potential.

For the December Retreat, you’ll have an opportunity to focus on integration and next steps for sustaining and expanding your vision and amplifying your impact as a leader. We’ll celebrate your leadership growth and progress on your project, as well as assess and fine-tune your vision based on learning throughout the program.

You’ll give an updated presentation about your initiative, and receive feedback from your peers and core faculty about what you’ve offered.

Together, we’ll plan next steps and set up a system of support for maintaining momentum on your mission and project, and sustaining your leadership growth over time. Finally, you’ll integrate what we’ve learned about building evolutionary community and culture, and develop your plan to expand this kind of community and culture in your workplace, community or other contexts where you lead.


Location: Our retreats will be hosted at EarthRise, a beautiful, conscious retreat center located within the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) campus... just 35 minutes north of San Francisco.


This is also the office headquarters for The Shift Network, and you’ll have an opportunity to meet some of our senior leaders. Amid 194 acres of rolling hills, you’ll have time to enjoy hiking trails that meander through native live oak woodlands and the surrounding open space, which offers panoramic vistas of the Northern California landscape.

**Please note that your food, lodging and facility fees at Earthrise retreat center are NOT INCLUDED in your program tuition. See FAQ for anticipated costs.**

Praise for Your Program Leader, Sherri Lassila


Sherri’s greatness stems from her ability to combine/leverage three talents — as a teacher, facilitator and coach — to lead groups of individuals through a personally transformative journey in community with one another. She engenders trust in participants through her warmth and personal stories; engages participants through reflective and provocative exercises, and builds community through a shared experience / living laboratory.
— Laura Bunch, Director of Career Services at Stanford Graduate School of Business

Sherri is masterful at guiding people to a deeper place within themselves, and holding a supportive and powerful space for transformation. It seems to me that facilitation is not just something she loves to do — it’s something that naturally flows from who she is. She is grounded, heart-centered and brilliant — someone I can absolutely trust to lead a group in a profoundly connected and high-impact experience.
— Michelle Stransky, Founder of Wisdom Women and Former Conference Director of Wisdom 2.0

Sherri’s coaching circle has been one of the most effective lifelong learning experiences that I’ve had. Sherri is a woman with a mission! She is equal parts smarts and soul, and she puts all the intellectual rigor of her Stanford MBA behind her soul mission working with leaders. Sherri has drawn on cutting-edge research about creativity, psychology and innovation to create a unique Professional Reboot process. You will learn to listen for your most intuitive, powerful inklings. Through individually designed action-experiments, you’ll practice putting inklings into action in order to get on the road to doing the work you were uniquely designed to do. I’ve seen magic happen in Sherri’s coaching circle.
— Cristina Spencer, Writer and Community Builder

Sherri was a beautiful and responsive coach. I loved her perspective on things and she offered me a new way of looking at certain situations. During my time with Sherri, I was able to make leaps and bounds in the absolute faith in self... The value I received was beyond money. I am moving forward in my life now and experiencing wild success. Working with Sherri was a prominent stepping stone that has brought me to this place of clarity, joy and CONFIDENCE IN WHO I AM!
— Lisa Van Ahn, Founder of I Am Initiative and Owner of LVA Fitness

Sherri is a highly gifted coach. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Sherri in an important time in my life. Her ability to get to the heart of whatever issue you are going through is a wonderful opportunity to really make a transformation in your thinking, your possibilities and your vision. I would highly recommend her to anybody who wants to make a transformation in their lives, find and live their purpose.
— MaryAnn Voli, Managing Director at Potential Squared Asia Pacific

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Where and when are the retreats taking place, and how much will I need to pay for food and lodging at those retreats?
A:Our retreats will be hosted at EarthRise, a beautiful, semi-rural conscious living center located within the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) campus... just 35 minutes north of San Francisco. It is easily accessible from the East Bay and North Bay, as well as from San Francisco. Dates are April 10-13 and December 2-5, 2017. Costs for food and lodging are approximately $650 per retreat for lodging in a double room. If you prefer a single room, the cost is approximately $800 per retreat.

Q: What is your refund policy?
A: Your satisfaction with The Shift Network and this course is our highest priority! We offer a satisfaction guarantee so that you can sample the course risk-free. The deadline to receive a full refund is March 16, 2017. To request a refund, please click on this refund request form and submit your request. Your refund will be processed within five business days and we’ll send you an email confirming your refund. However, we’d love to have a chance to address and resolve your concerns first. If there’s something we can assist you with, please email us at and we’ll be happy to help! (No refund requests accepted after the above date.)

Q: What is a virtual course?
A: It’s a great way to engage live teachings and each other from the comfort of your home! All you need is a phone line (or an equivalent voice service). If there is more than one person in your household taking the course, you will each need your own line. We use MaestroConference to make it just like an in-person event, where you can ask questions, participate in groups, and deepen your exploration of the course themes.

Please note that dialing MaestroConference from your phone is a regular toll call to California; your telephone service provider will charge you according to your existing long-distance calling plan. Other options include calling cards and discount long-distance carriers. You can also use Skype to connect to MaestroConference at no charge, and we offer a webcast which is free to use from anywhere in the world.

I have never participated before in an online course. The packaging, presentation, inclusion and Facebook postings created a wonderful, safe cocoon to participate. I haven’t seen a course so well put together ever — not in all the years of taking college classes — and I had my doubts about doing an online course. The wealth of organization and ease of learning materials and support made this fun as well.
– Claudia F., Medford, MA

Q: Can I get benefit from the course if I miss the live classes?
A: Absolutely! You can download the recordings and transcripts of all course sessions from our online media archive, so you never need to worry about missing live calls. You can also engage the full community and leaders on our private community website.

Q: Can you tell me about the Private Course Group?
A: We will have a private community group for all course participants on Facebook that will support you in making connections with others, sharing insights, engaging in discussions, completing homework assignments and exchanging information about events and other activities that can supplement your transformational journey. You’ll have the ability to share your experiences, projects and growth throughout the Course.

Q: How can I reach Customer Support?
A: Please visit our Customer Support Center, where you should be able to find the answer to your question or the solution to a problem. And if you can’t, you can submit an online request form and we’ll get right back to you.
