Feminine Leadership Retreat

Explore the Feminine side of Leadership with an intimate group of women leaders

Brussels March 5th and 6th


Do you hear the call for more balanced leadership? The call to embrace your feminine leadership qualities? And learn to lead from a place of wholeness where both your masculine and feminine traits are equally visible in your leadership?

Sonia Herrero and I invite you to join our retreat and explore the feminine side of leadership with a small group of like-minded women.

Feminine leadership is about the ability to bring purpose into your organization, the ability to listen to the language of your emotions and your body, and to embody a leadership style where there is room for both your undeniable power as well as your sincere vulnerability.

If you notice a tendency to reject the feminine part of who you are, maybe out of fear of not being taken seriously or if you feel a longing to bring your feminine strengths to the next level, this retreat is designed for you!

  • Do you aspire a (bigger) leadership role without ‘masculinizing’ yourself?
  • Have you been ‘one of the guys’ during your career and do you now long to become more balanced and authentic as a leader? Where both your masculine ánd feminine strengths are valued and developed?
  • Do you want to learn how to change and transform your business and the people with your leadership presence?
  • Do you desire to become a ‘femme inspiratrice’? A woman who inspires growth and has the gift to raise people to new heights?
  • Do you feel exhausted, unvalued and not seen for what you’ve to bring into your leadership?

You were never meant to play the game. You were meant to change the game! 

We are not going to teach you how to ‘play the game’.  Or telling you to ‘man-up’, or that you have to make ‘tough decisions’ and ‘sacrifices’. Because that’s not true. What is true is that women become inspiring, charismatic and purpose-driven leaders when they’ve learned how to connect and lead from their feminine power. And with their masculine and feminine strengths in balance hold the power to ‘change the game’.

During the Feminine Leadership Retreat you will learn to:

  • Develop your own, authentic leadership style aligned with all the natural gifts & competencies that you have as a woman
  • Learn how to achieve the same results while diminishing energy-drains
  • Tools to skillfully navigate the concrete challenges women face in the workplace
  • Incorporate intuition, vulnerability, empathy, humanity and collaboration into your leadership style
  • Increase your executive presence without having to talk and behave like a man
  • Tools to integrate your masculine and feminine leadership qualities to create synergy and better business outcome


The retreat is residential. We will meet outside of Brussels, in a beautiful place in nature. We will spend 1,5 days working and sharing with other women who are also in leadership positions.  Our groups are kept small (only up to 12 women) to ensure one-on-one conversation, rich dialogue, and time for your personal questions.

We will use different methods:

    • One online group coaching session before the retreat
    • Teaching sessions by retreat facilitators Carla and Sonia
    • Individual reflection and time to do exercises on your own
    • Practical exercises using movement, meditation, and similar tools to help you experience what feminine leadership means.
    • Peer-to-peer support: there will be moments in which you will get guidance on how to work in pairs and support each other.
    • Sharing circles: during the retreat you will be invited to connect with other business women in a very personal and intimate setting in order to share related experiences, challenges, and questions you may have.

After the retreat you will also:

    • Receive one online group coaching session in order to follow up on the things that you discovered during the retreat.
    • Be able to join our community of like-minded women leaders and benefit from further input and support from other participants and from us.
