1. What happens in the sessions?

Taking the Stage® consists of groups of 6 to 10 women who meet for four dynamic monthly The Humphrey Group Inc. Logosessions led
by a volunteer facilitator in your community. Each session is structured with a 20 minute video segment,
rich group discussion, some practice exercises and networking opportunities. 
Session topics are:

  1. Choosing to Take the Stage
  2. Creating a Leader's Script
  3. Unlocking the Power of Your Voice
  4. Achieving a Powerful Presence

2. What is the role of the participant?

Participants must commit to attending four sessions led by a volunteer facilitator. Each session will include an introduction to one of the four core topics and a 20 minute video followed by facilitated group discussions and exercises. 

Participants must be open to sharing their experiences, challenges, and ideas with the other members of their group. They must also be open to change and to receiving both creative and critical comments. A participant may be asked to go beyond their comfort level in learning to project their leadership qualities. Participants will explore how they can apply what they learn to their own work, community and personal settings.


3. What is the role of the facilitator?

The facilitator’s role is to assist the group through the Taking the Stage® session and to help participants find areas to apply the training in their lives. The facilitator will lead four video-based learning sessions filled with rich, balanced group discussion.

Facilitators attend two days of Taking the Stage® Facilitator Training before leading their groups.
