Connections That Make Things Happen

A THINK TANK DESIGNED TO BE YOUR PERSONAL BOARD OF DIRECTORS FOR LIFE AND WORK.

The Women of WeWork Co-Storm is an invitation only event, bringing together women from the four WeWork Seattle area locations under one roof on Friday, July 21, 2017.  We have created this event as an opportunity to meet each other, and explore together the common needs, resources, and talents this group represents.  The goal is to share projects and ideas, and deep dive into discovering how to help each other.

Are you in the process of realizing your vision, but you’ve hit a roadblock?  Are you looking to take your idea to the next level?  No matter where you are in your process, you won’t want to miss this day of brainstorming, problem-solving and mentorship in a unique think-tank structure.

Bring your idea, prototype, or just an empty notebook and get ready to take the next step.

Turn your ideas into action at the Women of WeWork C0-Storming Mashup (SEATTLE)- Friday July 21, 2017

A Co-Storm is a think-tank style session where two or three people brainstorm for each other.

The concept behind Co-Storm is how much more we’re able to see  (brainstorm) for each other, than we see for ourselves. There’s a creative back and forth energy in getting outside your own head. Fresh eyes see our blind spots and filters. They also mirror back to us what’s really going on. A co-stormer’s insight can clarify what steps to take next, highlight your strengths, and make you pay attention to what should happen naturally. It can solve a problem in your field with an outsider’s perspective.

I truly believe we’ve got great energy going in our community you’re not going  to find anywhere else…collaborate with us and hitch a ride on that energy!

Bring your idea or project, a journal, sticky pads, colored pens and be prepared to have your world rocked and to rock your fellow participants. You will get new perspectives and confidence to move forward with your project…or, you might ditch your plans and go in a totally different direction! No matter the outcome, I guarantee you will be walking out the door already taking steps in the right direction.

“THE ULTIMATE CO-STORMING MASHUP WILL BE PART BUSINESS COACHING, PART THERAPY, PART MASTERMINDING, PART MENTORING AND PART CONNECTING ON A DEEPER LEVEL.”

BACKGROUND STORY

How Co-Storming Came About

One of my favorite CRAVE’s in life is to build deeper personal connections with people. Conversation over coffee, then a long walk works well for me. Earlier this year a friend and I decided to commit a whole day to catch each other up on our current business projects.  READ MORE.

What is a Co-Storm?

THE FAQS

A: A co-storm is a think-tank style session where two or three people brainstorm for each other. The beauty of co-storming is using the concept that we see more for each other than we do for ourselves. Getting a fresh perspective from a stranger could reveal and open your eyes to a new way to look at your project.

 

A: Start with an introduction and a download of the project/idea you want to put into the storm. Divide the remainder of the time between your projects, and storm some options and next steps and timeline to move forward. Each participant will follow up on the date of completion to create accountability.

 

A: We want to know the project or pain point you have that you would like to brainstorm. So we can best match you, we ask what your magic powers are, what skills do you have naturally. Also what kind of mentorship would best serve you.With all that in mind we go to work to see if you fit into the co-storm and how we can hook you up.

 

A. We start the session out with everyone in the same room and will go over the instructions of the day.  Then we will pair you off in groups of three (handpicked for you). Your group of three will go off for a two hour co-storm session. After you are done, we will all gather together and recap the day as a whole group to share the collective wisdom.

A full day put aside to create, challenge my ideas, kick me in the pants when needed and then turn around and help another do the same thing for their business was so rewarding. It was the final push I needed to launch my new brand and gain insight on how I can build my business to the next level.

Co-storming was a reflective experience. It was like having someone verbalize the things in your brain that you may not have been able to articulate prior. For me 2 major changes happened. First, I could see where I was missing the big picture. I was totally focused on my mistakes and missed the successes. Second, I was able to reinforce some of my ‘gut feelings’ about how to grow that I was talking myself out of.

I showed up at my #CoStorming date with a massive list of possibilities. And that’s all it was: a list. I left my #CoStorming date with a very specific “next best step”, plus a short-term plan and a TON of clarity that is simply not possible to find when you are always working away by yourself. #CoStorming rocks!
