In this episode, our host Leslie Frame-Crowley interviews WisdomWomen Founder Michelle Stransky, who shares her story of birthing WisdomWomen, her vision for a world of integrated organizations and her devotion to listening inwards for what wants to happen next.
Michelle was the conference director at Wisdom 2.0, where she launched WisdomWomen in 2013. A former management consultant and executive coach, she is now committed to co-creating a new world reality through the journey of embodied wisdom. Michelle believes that it is time for women to bring their deep wisdom forward into co-creating the life-affirming world we know is possible. As a Producer, she brings her gifts and experience of producing events around the world into creating WisdomWomen gatherings. As a Collaborator, she brings her leadership skills in tandem with her experience participating in and leading women’s circles. One of Michelle’s greatest joys is in being a connector and so it is a great honor for her to be a weaver of the WisdomWomen web.
Leslie Frame-Crowley is a WisdomWomen Founding Member who believes in the power and necessity of sacred storytelling. Coming from a family with a strong tradition of story, and of understanding and connecting to the of the lives of her ancestors through genealogical study handed down from generation to generation, she connected very early on the the power, the fun, and the importance of story; our own stories, and our shared story. This calling has led her to the stage as an actor and to develop a love of writing. Step Into the Circle is a reflection of Leslie’s love of story. She believes that as we share our stories, our dreams, and our work, and as we celebrate other women as they do the same, connections are made, resources are shared, and creative hearts are nourished.
