Leading social change is not for the faint of heart. Our courses are designed to point you in the right direction but sometimes it’s helpful to get a little tune-up along the way.

We created this Coaching Community to provide the “just right” amount of ongoing coaching and mentoring to alumni of our courses. It is valued at over $2,000/mo but we wanted to create an affordable and accessible resource. The biggest cost is the willingness to learn in public. This is a safe space to bring your issues, problems, concerns and potentials. We will answer all of your questions and coach anybody who wants it. 

Coaching Schedule

Becky Margiotta - Every first Wednesday from 10:30am-12pm PT (inner work of social change)

Christine Ortiz - Every third Tuesday of the month 8:30am-9:45am PT (equity and design)

Susan Jane - Every third Wednesday from 10:30am-12pm PT (leadership challenges)

Mike Thompson - Every fourth Thursday from 8am-9:30am PT (organizational management)

We will reach out to all members the day before the call to solicit your questions and requests for coaching and consulting. Everything is welcome. You can be yourself here. You are among friends, and we’re all going to learn from one another. If you’re struggling with something, I guarantee you, others are, too. 

 We’re open to whatever emerges organically out of this group and will be responsive to the needs of whoever shows up. If we ever reach a point where we are unable to answer every single person’s needs during our calls, we will open up more calls and if necessary bring in more coaches with different expertise. 

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

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

And as Selena likes to say, it’s cheaper than therapy.

Hi, I’m Becky Margiotta

I am a tuning fork for authenticity and aliveness. In my coaching I model authenticity, boldness and humility. I am certified as a Big Leap Coach by the Hendricks Institute. You can consider me your “woo woo can of whoop ass” because I will not tolerate you playing small. I won’t hold back on anything I notice that might help you step more into your own wholeness as a person and as a leader. I am here to help 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.
