We have been passionate about supporting one another since our first event in 2013. Our culture has since evolved and become even stronger. We know who we are and how we want to change the world. This is a new kind of 'operating system' and we are proudly building it, together.
We shared the characteristics of being a driven woman earlier. And as hundreds of women are now joining our movement it's time to share with you what you can expect from us.
This is how we roll. 11 things to know about DrivenWoman's culture.
#1 We are creating a community we love.
DrivenWoman is a new kind of ecosystem. We don’t believe in rigid top-down leadership structures. We expect everyone who joins to take responsibility for co-creating a community we all love and want to be part of.
#2 We change our own world.
It is time women take responsibility for their own lives and stop waiting for someone to fix it for them. We don’t point fingers or try to find the culprit. We accept that circumstance aren’t always ideal for women, but rather than crying over spilled milk we focus our energy making the small changes within our power to make things happen.
#3 We blossom with a help of others.
We believe we are all connected and find more similarities than differences in one another. Appreciation starts from a belief that everyone has something unique to bring to the table. We appreciate our own talents and don’t shy away from sharing them with the world We reach out for help and know that asking is not a sign of weakness, but a strength. We support each other unconditionally and believe that when we learn to flourish our sisters will flourish with us.
#4 This is an ecosystem connected by joy and trust.
We follow our joy and get excited about life’s opportunities. We find our creative moments when we are playing and having fun. Every day we are learning to take ourselves less seriously as we don’t believe a sour face is a symbol of credibility. Our network is built on bonds of trust between people. This makes us very strong together.
#5 We take small steps to big goals.
We are building a new operating system for the world. That’s not a small task, but we do not doubt, as we know we will get there as we are committed to showing up fully and applying our excellence to our work every day.
#6 We obsess about making a positive impact.
DrivenWoman comes with a massive ambition of social change. We believe that when women become more aware of their own dreams and ideas, and find the courage to step into their own power to make those dreams a reality, the whole world will change for the better. We aim to be at the forefront in facilitating this paradigm shift on a global scale.
#7 We dare to be different, transparent and truthful.
Our culture of honesty, openness and vulnerability is not for everyone, and that’s ok. We are strong on compassion, kindness and believe every dream was created equal. We don’t wear masks; try to impress you with our long resume and are especially allergic to excessive egos. We may not always appear polished and perfect in photos or real life, but that doesn’t stop us from creating a bigger life and massive success.
#8 We believe in creating abundance for everyone.
We want to keep our LifeWorking groups accessible to as many women as possible, but at the same time we don’t believe in providing a free service. Our method is based on commitment. Paying a membership fee helps our members get serious about their goals and our Group Leaders about delivering the best possible group experience. We want you to be positively influenced by DrivenWoman – emotionally, spiritually, physically and financially.
#9 We are comfortable with the uncomfortable.
All growth happens outside of our comfort zone. We are ready to take risks and explore new opportunities. We are ready to make choices based on our own values. Sometimes this means we are not pleasing everyone or perform to expectations. Change only happens when we are ready to break the rules!
#10 We are fiercely proactive.
The only way to create change is to do something about the things that are not working. We apply this into everything we do. We see growth opportunities where others see obstacles and always look for solutions to make things happen. Talk is cheap at DrivenWoman, we are not what we say, but what we do.
#11 We believe in our purpose and create our own world.
When you define your our own success it becomes deeply personal. We have chosen our own path and are on this journey because it is our purpose to change the world. Women who get involved with DrivenWoman don’t need to be motivated to do so, they join because our message resonates deeply within them.
