The Life Changing Power of Knowing | Enneagram Workshop

Enneagram

Have you ever wished you had a cheat code to understanding yourself and other people?

Welcome to the Enneagram.

Originally an oral tradition, come learn about the Enneagram the way it was meant to be learned--through discussion with others. In recent decades, the Enneagram has gained popularity in the West. But this is an ancient personality typing system that has been used for centuries as a tool of self-awareness and self-discovery, describing 9 core types. Life Coach Ashlee Sikorski will be our guide through the Enneagram during this 2 day workshop. She is a Professional Coach here in Portland, OR and had been studying this tool for 6 years.


Friday Evening | 6-8pm | During this portion of the event, we will discuss each type and participate in activities which elicit greater awareness, all while enjoying drinks on tap.

Saturday Morning | 8:30am-12pm | Continuation of discussion from Friday, dive deeper into each type and its characteristics, hear unique perspectives on each type from those who identify with the number. We will end our time with a light seasonal meal catered by Rikki Wynn of the Chatty Hen.

We invite you to dive deeper into understanding how you interact with the world. Join us at The Weller Society and discover how the Enneagram can help you connect more others and your truest self.

It's Earth Day! 
If you haven't seen the documentary "The True Cost" you might not realize just how important it is to be mindful of what and from where you're buying. Fast fashion is contributing to really bad effects environmentally, economically, and socially.

Let's save the planet one garment at a time! Instead of sending your old clothes to a landfill and buying more, join us for a clothing swap! Weller has some pretty stylish ladies, so you don't wanna miss this event.

DOERS Council Meet-up | Know your WHY

We all learn by making mistakes. But what if we don't have to make the mistakes ourselves to learn? What if we could compress all the wisdom and experience from the people around us into knowledge that we can use to overcome and avoid pitfalls? What if we had a community of supportive doers to walk beside us on our journey?

Welcome to DOERS.

177A8236 copy 2.jpg

Doers is a series of monthly meet-ups hosted by The Weller Society where small business owners, creatives, and entrepreneurs hang out and share their ideas, experiences, and insights into a variety of topics. 

For this month's session, we will be talking about knowing your WHY - how to communicate it to the world and your team, how to maintain it during growth.

Join us every Last Tuesday for drinks and conversation.

Every First Friday, we have a free happy hour for Weller Members and their guests. 

"Community" isn't just a buzz word -- it's a powerful force of personal and societal transformation. It allows us to feel known, to belong, to be stretched and inspired, to be challenged and encouraged, to be our best selves. We are committed to supporting each other in real ways. And part of community is being able to get together and have a good time. So that's what we do.

How to Design Your Business to Create Freedom, Flexibility and Fulfillment

298A4843.jpg

Are you buttoned up on the outside and a mess behind the scenes? 

Does your life work for you or is your life about your work?

Most of us got into this whole entrepreneur thing because we craved freedom and flexibility in our schedules and the chance to do fulfilling work in our businesses. But when you're hustling to grow, these are often the first things to go. That's why it's so important to intentionally design your business to support your lifestyle, not take away from it.

Join us for a live workshop as business coach Ashley Gartland teaches us how to design your business to suit your lifestyle. She'll walk us through the simple steps to make a priority-focused schedule so you can use yours to create freedom and flexibility in your life. Then she'll show us how to make time in that schedule to do fulfilling, high-impact work so you can grow your business without overcomplicating things or compromising the quality of your life.

Free for Weller Members

Life After Social Media

photo-1495791153954-705fa8c56eec.jpeg

Is Social Media consuming your life, causing you anxiety, and making you feel less integrated as a person?

Is it making you less happy instead of more?

You're not alone.

We live in an interesting time for human beings -- the digitalization of our world has brought a lot of benefits -- but also has anxiety at an all time high, misinformation is more abundant than ever before, and we are running the risk of becoming more divided instead of more connected. 

What does a healthy relationship with social media look like? 
How can we set good boundaries regarding the way we use it?

What role does social media play in my mental and relational health?

Join us for some honest conversations about social media and how we can control it, instead of the other way around.

Service Design Blueprinting Workshop

Screen Shot 2018-01-30 at 11.55.14 AM.png

Service Design is a human-centered design methodology that places equal value on the customer experience and the back-stage business operations to create mutual value.

Most of us have heard of User Experience at this point. Service Design zooms out to look at both the user experience, the employee experience, and all the of the systems, tools, processes, and cultural norms that play into those experiences with the goal of improving the entire system-- for everyone involved.

On February 6th, we’ll take a look at the new member sign-up process for the Weller Society: https://www.thewellersociety.com/ as a real life case study of how to apply SD principles and build a Service Design blueprint.

This workshop is perfect for you if:
- You know there is a pain point your customers experience with your service/ your business and you don’t know how to fix it.
- You have ideas about improving the new member sign-up process for the Weller!
- You are interested in learning more about Design Thinking as problem solving, and learning a new approach to collaborating on complex issues. The workshop is open to both absolute beginners and seasoned service design practitioners.

This will be a hands-on, facilitated workshop. Be prepared to roll up your sleeves and work in small groups to generate insights on the new member Weller experience. Ongoing Meetup Structure:
Our group meets on the first Thursday of every month. We either meet at 10 Barrel for casual #thinksndrinks or we host hands-on service blueprinting workshops with partner organizations. If you have a connection to a business who might be interested in hosting us for a workshop, please send along an introduction: sara.mesing@gmail.com.

To dive in to everything Service Design, our favorite resource is: http://www.practicalservicedesign.com. Check out the community on Slack.
