Communication and Personal Empowerment Workshops


We’re all familiar with the African proverb, “It takes a village to raise a child.” The question is: how do we engage, empower and support the “village” (or community) so we can work together to ensure success for all of our children?   One way we contribute is through integrating coaching skills into empowerment workshops (for youth, teens and adults).

At Collaborate Change, we design and facilitate engaging, empowering, experiential workshops for youth, teens and adults that:

  • Catalyze insight, action and transformation
  • Connect people with their authentic inner voice – their dreams, passions, strengths, gifts, values and desires
  • Increase awareness of personal and interpersonal patterns and behaviors that interfere with goal achievement
  • Provide insight into ways to deal with challenges, set-backs, obstacles and fear
  • Help participants chart a path to a richer, more balanced and fulfilling life
  • Provide opportunities to learn the skills through practice in the workshop

Workshops can be custom-designed for your organization. Sample workshop topics include:

  • Communicating with power and clarity
  • Making your dreams a reality
  • Take your life back!
  • Walking through fear
  • Overcoming limiting beliefs
  • Put on your oxygen mask first
  • Just say no (to bad food, distractions, other people’s stuff, whatever doesn’t feel right)
  • Building strong community – co-creating a new way of community

Coach Sharon Y. Brown typically conducts the workshops at churches and community centers.  Mini-workshops can be arranged for after-school programs. For more information or to discuss workshops for your organization, contact Sharon.
