There will be an all-day workshop and cookout on Saturday, August 29. The event includes a thorough orientation to key principles and in-depth exercises on the purpose of your work. It is an excellent opportunity to meet your fellow Associates and our coaches.

Thanks to the generous support of the Busch School of Business, the evening seminars are held at:

Maloney Hall, Seminar Room 301
Catholic University of America
620 Michigan Ave., N.E.
Washington, DC  20064

Coaching Pods:

Coaching sessions take place with a “Pod” of 5 to 8 participants led by an executive coach, a format that combines experienced advice with the support of a team. The dates and times are scheduled by each Pod, and most meetings happen virtually (via Zoom).


To ease financial difficulties during COVID-19, and thanks to a generous donor, we are able to reduce the monthly fee to $30 per month, for 10 months. The fee is collected before each of the 9 workshops, plus the orientation. Participants can withdraw at any time with no further obligation.
