Using The R3 Method™ of Leadership Coaching--a spiritually-inspired and research-based coaching methodology, each Black womxn is invited to rebirth, reset, and renew their divine life. Using the four domains of emotional intelligence—rewritten through the lens of racial equity—as the thread that binds the 9-week journey, each participant is guided to (re) discover emotional intelligence as their intrinsic asset as a Black womxn and learn how to intentionally apply it to their leadership and life.
Four Domains of Emotional Intelligence
The ability to read and understand our own emotions, biases, assumptions, privileges, internalized racism and patriarchy, and beliefs, know our strengths and growth areas, feel confident about our self-worth, and intuitively know how our emotions impact others
The ability to recognize and understand the individual and collective emotions and perspectives of others, and to know how to apply this understanding to how we connect with, lead, and manage others
The ability to experience and express our emotions authentically, manage stress and our responsibilities, and make appropriate adjustments based upon systemic oppression, changing situations, obstacles, and opportunities
The ability to communicate in such a way that engages healthy conflict, inspires leadership, and cultivates team cohesion
When a Black womxn awakens to her divine power, cultivates it in the company of other Black womxn, and channels it toward her life's purpose, her influence is limitless and felt for generations. IndigoWomxn are coached to adopt self-care as a mindset, sharpen their emotional intelligence, strengthen their coaching skills, and expand and nurture their professional community.
