Enough! Productivity for Feminists is a group coaching programme offering an alternative to the macho, neoliberal, how-to-suck-as-much-productivity-as-possible-out-of-the-day-so-you-can-contribute-to-the-knowledge-economy-and-advance-your-career mode of thinking. We focus as much on the being as the doing, experimenting with skills and strategies while keeping our health and values at the forefront.
Enough! Productivity for Feminists is a 10-week programme offered annually, launching in January each year. The heart of the programme is small-group coaching to build awareness and solidarity. The group coaching is supported with optional one-on-ones, exercises, accountability buddies and a book club. Together, we build community and create a space for reflection, connection, resistance and change.
Essential programme components: Opening workshop (90 minutes), closing workshop (90 minutes), and four group-coaching sessions (60 minutes).
Who: All feminists welcome! Any sexual orientation, any gender, any race, religion, or nationality.
When & Where: The next programme will begin in January 2022 and will be held on Zoom (mindfully facilitated to encourage focus and presence). Scroll down for specific dates & times.
Content: Each year, the programme is customised to participants’ interests and goals, gathered through enrolment interviews held in December. Possible topics include (but are not limited to): daily practice; producing v creating; self-talk; modes of working; technology; rituals; metaphors; agency; solidarity; rhythms & cycles; priorities & values; forgiveness & gratitude; rest; inner critics; affirmations; and being liked.
Yes, it’s a long list. There are so many possible ways into these big questions, and this is one of the things that distinguishes the programme. Enough! is not a formula or prescription; it is an evolving framework for experimenting, changing, and resisting.
