Who we are:

We work in health care, human services, education, climate change, immigrant rights, LGBTQ+ rights, racial and social justice, and journalism.

We are leaders in government, nonprofit, philanthropy, and small business. We are activists in our communities.

Everyone in this community is here on this planet to get big things done in this lifetime.

How we roll:

Some of us show up for every single coaching call.

Some of us only show up when we're in a pickle.

Both options are perfectly acceptable in this community.

The best part of being in this community is that we always show up for one another.

If you're looking for a safe space to grow as a leader and connect with a diverse and exceptional peer group, look no further.

The Billions Institute Coaching Community was created for leaders just like you. We are here to help you resolve your most thorny leadership dilemmas and to know that no matter how lonely it may feel at the top, you are never alone.

What you get:

Twice a month you will have the option to join a confidential group call with a Billions Institute coach and receive - or witness and provide support for other members - just-in-time coaching on pretty much anything that's keeping you awake at night. Our coaches have been hand-picked for their outstanding coaching skills and their relevant expertise. They can help you:

  • address challenges related to race, diversity, equity, and inclusion
  • get the right people on the bus
  • get the wrong people off the bus
  • align your organization
  • optimize your genius
  • bring out the best in your colleagues
  • design equitable programs
  • establish a liberatory and regenerative culture with your team
  • design for spread/scale
  • manage up
  • tackle board and governance issues
  • clear up organizational dysfunction
  • overcome imposter syndrome
  • set boundaries
  • achieve some semblance of life-work balance

You get the picture. Our coaches are the best! If you were to seek 1:1 coaching with any of them, the least expensive option would be $300/hour. This is an exceptional deal, just sayin'.

But it's not just the coaches - it's the community itself.

When you become a member of the Coaching Community you get access to our exclusive members-only message board where you can get 24/7 access to this exceptional peer group for honest feedback and mutual aid. We really do show up for one another.

Also included in your membership:

  • 10% discount on any 1:1 coaching purchased through our "a la carte coaching" offer (coming soon). ** This alone is worth the membership fee if you plan to get any 1:1 coaching.**
  • Curated resources (pdf of Becky's book, Impact With Integrity, handouts and worksheets from all our workshops, guided meditations, etc.)
  • First dibs and exclusive discounts to Billions Institute trainings and events

Coaching Schedule: 1st and 3rd Wednesday at 11 AM Pacific (2 PM Eastern, 7 PM GMT)

Our intent is for this to be your refuge, your sanctuary, your happy place.  

Because friends don’t let friends lead social change alone...

I am a tuning fork for authenticity and aliveness. I have a knack for detecting any internal wobbles and playfully bringing them to the surface for your attention. I get such a thrill in supporting you in discovering what is true for you, in that moment. I am the author of #1 bestselling book, Impact with Integrity: Repairing the World Without Breaking Yourself, cofounder and owner of The Billions Institute, LLC, and the host of the Unleashing Social Change Podcast. You can consider me your “woo woo can of whoop ass." I look forward to helping you swing for the fences, fulfill your destiny, and make your big dent in the Universe. Prepare to be challenged in the most loving way possible.
