The Weston Network


Are you feeling a sense of burnout or overwhelm at work? Do your teams need expert support with effectively collaborating and holding each other accountable? 

The Weston Network’s leadership programs, training, workshops, coaching and consulting can help you move through difficult conversations while  increasing your skills, resiliency and productivity.

Creating a Culture of mutual empowerment

A resilient team or team member can think and feel at the same time. Doing so leads to effective decision-making, clear communication, and the ability to meet challenges with confidence and success. Cultivating resilience means that you are able to simultaneously care for yourself and others.

At the Weston Network, we call this “creating a culture of mutual empowerment” . . . one that is inclusive while affording everyone the right to respectfully and assertively hold themselves and each other accountable. It’s exactly what today’s workplace needs, especially in these uncertain times. Mutual empowerment makes all the difference between an organization struggling to survive and one that thrives in the midst of widespread challenges, reorganizations and internal strife.

Inspired by the insights of neuroscience and contemporary communication models, as well as the deep wisdom and practices of martial arts and somatic techniques, the Weston Network’s programs offer easy-to-follow methods (designed to benefit both leaders and teams), exercises and tools that produce immediate, tangible benefits. By investing time and energy into building trust, collaboration and personal self-care, you will see your productivity trending markedly upward with much less time and effort.

While all of our programs are individually designed to meet the needs of your organization, our offerings generally include:

“My team functions much more effectively using processes built and put in place through the work with Respectful Confrontation. They get things done 20% faster, and better, because they know how to communicate effectively and resolve conflict quickly. People have stopped coming to me complaining about others; the drama has disappeared almost completely.”
