While many leadership models exist, research shows that the most transformational kind of leaders lead with feminine qualities. In a world powered by the masculine mindset, it’s crucial for women to be aware of this information, feel empowered by it, and recognize how to leverage it in order to reach their fullest potential.

Our workshop includes a series of creative techniques blending movement, writing, meditation, partner work and group dialogue. The experience aims to empower each woman to connect with her inner leader, increase her confidence, and motivate her to take inspired action. 

 

Dependent on final audience and goals, this workshop can be tailormade for your audience.

It's one thing to want to share your wisdom, and it's another thing to embody it, teach it, and pass on its practical value. In a world full of students, our teachers are the most important relationship we have. 

What does it take to be a good teacher? Becoming a facilitator, one who facilitates change and encourages growth. The main challenge is, that there are minimal resources available today, and many of them do not provide as much value as experience does. 

After 5 years of experience, experimentation, and exploring, there are specific methods we can use to design transformational experiences. In this workshop, I share ten tools to create a powerful framework to facilitate. Create a more solid program and teaching capacity - to create more value for their students, and so for our world. 

For anyone who wants to learn simple and solid facilitation strategies to create transformational experiences, this is your program.

Zo Flamenbaum started working for the ice cream man when she was nine years old, and ever since, has made it the central mission of her career to explore various ways to deliver happiness. 

 

After graduating from Monmouth University with a Business Management degree, Zo moved to Tel Aviv in 2010, and began working in digital marketing. She realized that writing was her passion, and has since worked as an independent journalist, social media + marketing strategist, community builder, and content creator for initiatives dedicated to social impact.  

In 2014, Zo founded School of Shine, a value-based educational platform to cultivate wellbeing through self expression, leadership development and inspired action.Through SOS, Zo has produced, facilitated and collaborated on hundreds of events, from large-scale community festivals to international women's retreats to intimate wellbeing workshops. 

 

She believes in the power of words, mindful movement and deep intention - and loves designing expansive experiences for brave and curious souls who are tired of 'default life' and crave personal freedom through self exploration for more purposeful living.

 

It takes just one voice to make an impact, and  Zo believes that the more women feel comfortable in their skin and confident in their voice, the more active female leaders will be emboldened to take action for good. 

 TESTIMONIALS

“I've participated in two writing workshops with Zo and she is an amazing facilitator. Not only did she encourage us to explore ourselves, but she discovered how to nurture our creativity and confidence. I recommend a School of Shine workshop to any woman of any age who has an interest in self-expression and a willingness to try something new!”

I absolutely loved the writing workshop with Zo. I arrived in a bit of a harried funk from a chaotic day in Tel Aviv, and left the workshop feeling centered, aligned, and with a noticeable creative buzz. Zo creates a safe, cozy, serene space for you to free whatever is asking to flow. Her fun and interesting exercises revealed to me new avenues of my personality, and writing, and gave me areas to further explore if I so choose. I learned both from the words that came out of me, and also the words that came out of the other amazing women who participated and shared. The workshop is perfect for writers and non-writers alike, for anyone seeking more clarity in their life and a creative outlet for expression. I can't wait for her next workshop!
