Did you miss it?

There are two more Take the Leap! workshops coming up.

The May 11 event is waiting for you.

∞ “Sonia’s workshops are beyond informative – they are transformative. If you’re ready to leave at the end of the day, feeling part of a tribe…bringing you closer to fully becoming the person you’ve been dreaming of, equipped with new skills and a sense of boldness…then I really hope you join Sonia in one of her workshops!" Andrada Muntean, transformation coach

∞ Special pricing has been established to be able to reach all those that want access to this life-changing model of growth, an opportunity to plan your legacy, your purpose, your learning journey. Other public events I deliver range from $400-$600 per day.∞

∞ Your investment includes a 1-day transformative experience to identify and cultivate a living legacy, two facilitators, breakfast, lunch, snacks, refreshments, and an after event 5 à 7. The pricing also includes all taxes and a 1.5-hour personal conversation to help you integrate your legacy into your everyday. The date for this conversation will be determined immediately following the workshop. ∞

This workshop is for you if:

∞ You wonder how to bring deep meaning to your work, study or relationships (you've lost that loving feeling!)

∞ You are following all the rules to make you happy but somehow you are not

∞ You are not sure how to take your goals to the next level

∞ You wonder if you are on the right path

∞ You are living in your past and it is guiding your future

∞ You want to leave a legacy that makes the world a better place but are not sure how to start

∞ You are ready to take the leap and grow!

We are all emerging leaders at various stages in our lives, taking on and avoiding challenges that bring fear. We may even make decisions based on fear, instead of joy and purpose.

"The Apple in the Orchard: a story about finding the courage to emerge as a leader by Sonia Di Maulo is a lovely little book with a profound message: To pursue greatness, aspiring leaders sometimes must dare to leave the familiar. Opportunities for growth and learning are all around you, so take the leap, and grow!" – Ken Blanchard, Coauthor of The One Minute Manager® and Great Leaders Grow

The Model of Growth for Emerging Leaders, developed in 2014 by Sonia Di Maulo and based on her book The Apple in the Orchard, offers a framework to help us understand and plan for a courageous life through growth; to "apply foresight and anticipation to ‘design for positive emergence’ — to transform the system towards increased health and an improved capacity to respond wisely and creatively to disruptions and change” (Wahl, 2017).

Use the model to learn how to effect, influence, and prepare for positive change. The cycle from stability to change to instability to new stability is normal and natural. Instead of fighting the inevitable, we can use it to our advantage. The model helps us navigate our relationships (with ourselves and others) and our life and work projects with resilience in the face of uncertainty.

This workshop invites you to be fully present to your own life, to celebrate and embrace your life story to craft a life of purpose, joy, and fulfillment.

Conversation about what makes us alive, creative and connected is the core invitation of this workshop.

Join us to take the leap and grow.


∞∞ By the end of the 1-day interactive hands-on workshop, Take the Leap, Grow into Your Legacy, you will be able to:

1. Describe the importance of the Model of Growth for Emerging Leaders as a framework for living fully with purpose.

2. Use the predictive Model of Growth for Emerging Leaders to craft a plan to leave a legacy: identify emotions in your path, determine learning that is required, and craft the legacy that allows you to be fully present in your life.

3. Plan to use the Model of Growth weekly to inspire positive action.

∞∞ Before attending the workshop you will:

1. Be automatically entered to take the 9-day Positive Communication Challenge, crafted from the Model of Growth.

2. Read the white paper: The Model of Growth for Emerging Leaders.

3. Prepare to leave the workshop with a full understanding of your purpose and how you will get there!

∞∞ After attending the workshop you will:

1. Book a 1.5-hour conversation to review your plan, ask questions, and plan to succeed.

2. Determine potential challenges to achieving your legacy and solutions to help you overcome them.

Eleni Stavroula Dracopoulos, MA

I am a multi-passionate entrepreneur and enjoy dedicating my time to the areas of performance, learning and design. In the past 10 years I have worked as a Behavioural Therapist for children with autism, have worked in business as a Learning and Performance Specialist and Creative Director, co-founded a Textile Printing company and launched my own Home Décor product line.

Recently, my focus has been working as a Business Consultant, specializing in Business Culture and Leadership and running my own Surface Pattern Design brand, Elianthi Patterns. My goal in business consulting is to help businesses create more welcoming work cultures and environments for their teams, in order to enhance safe and healthy spaces where people know what is expected of them, are motivated to share their ideas and expertise more openly and are given the opportunity to achieve their full potential while contributing to their company’s vision. This in combination with my passion for emotional literacy and self-awareness is how I strive to help leaders become agents of positive change.
