What Is The Focus Of Your Women’s Group

You’ve already thought about what kind of women’s group to start. Maybe you haven’t crystallized what it will be or what your goals are, but you have some ideas.

Will it be simply a group that gets together to discuss open-ended women-related topics? Will it focus on interpersonal relationships? Will it be all about self-help and personal growth for women?

Do you have a particular activity or hobby you want to share with others? Maybe reading and discussing the latest best-sellers, teaching each other new dishes to cook, going to and discussing plays or movies. What about learning all about investing or improving ones financial health?

Topic: Let Go of Struggle

Have you been trained to accept “struggle” as a given in your life?    Do you think nothing good comes unless you struggle?

Before you go any further, realize that working hard is not the same as struggle.   Working hard means you are giving it your all and are building either something tangible, knowledge or creating a relationship with a two year old in the middle of “no” stage.  Working hard has been tied with struggle and they are not the same thing.

How To Deal With The “Interrupter”

We’d all like to think that everything will always go according to plan and that everyone will always play by the rules and be accommodating to others in the group. A nice thought, but things do come up. Having a strategy ahead of time to deal with uncomfortable issues gives you the ability to move through them without causing great upset in your group.

A common issue in most groups is a member who talks a lot or interrupts others while they are speaking.  So how does the group handle this challenge? How do you handle a member who is dominating the discussion?
