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?

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?

Your Purpose – Why Do You Want To Start a Women’s Group?

An excerpt from our book “Essentials for Starting a Women’s Group“…(see sidebar for all of the details)

********************************************************************
Step back and think about why you want to start a women’s group. There are many approaches to this question. 

Start by thinking about the problems you face in your daily life. Perhaps you are a mother who faces issues raising your children. Maybe you want to have greater control over your finances; or possibly you want to lose some weight, start exercising and lead a healthier lifestyle. Maybe you work from home and want to connect with other work-at-home moms.
