Radio Interview
Keilayn Greenwood talks with Guest Pauline Field who says "Women and men are equally capable as leaders, but women have been trained to be nice.  Being nice can take us only so far then it trips
us up." (click here for video) .

Feisty and Fearless Circles are for women who are ready to move forward in life - at work, with your business, or through a transition. Be ready to be in action; to be accountable; to hold others accountable - all in the space of loving, feminine leadership. Compassion, curiosity, choice, laughter, support - these are part of the safe space we will be creating.

What you will NOT find in the Circle: Judgments, Shoulds, Blame or Shame.

In the sessions we will work with the distinctions of the power of words; practices that support you, and those that do not; spirituality as the best strategy for success; getting from your vision or dreams to results; the freedom and power that you have; how not to suffer; and how to really celebrate.

Each Circle meets six times over a period of 2-3 months. The first session is designed for you to experience the safe, loving and supportive space and for you to choose whether you will Flourish in the Circle, or not. At the end of the first session, the Circle will be closed.

If you see something in joining a Circle that speaks loudly enough to you because you are ready to create some miracles for yourself, e-mail us for the date of the next Circle.

Why do I need F&F to be free?
  • Because I want to take money out of the equation
  • Because we need to be thinking of other ways of being and acting and interacting with each other
  • What if value induced an exchange?
    • i.e. 1 person provides value to another
    • the person is appreciative and thankful
    • they are freed up to do something that is in alignment with who they are, helping them to be effective in the world
  • At some point, they provide value to someone - could be the initial person, may not be
  • If enough people provided value to someone, there would be a shift in our way of being with the need to exchange
  • And, some people will always be greedy; some people will not be appreciative and grateful; some people will not feel the need to pay it forward

Is this idealistic? Pollyanna? Maybe. But the nature of work and its exchange must change, is changing, and has changed in certain parts of the world. Millions of young people around the world have no jobs and no prospects for any. Cities and countries are trying pilot programs of giving people a set amount of money for them to use as they like in order to survive for a year. As businessmen and women, government officials, philanthropists and other great thinkers are considering our, the world's future, a top down approach, we can begin from the bottom up. We can take it on to consider how else we can meet our needs.

As we re-create the world of work/exchange, there may be a step back for every step forward. For instance, the company Halo Top decided to make a different type of ice cream and have been growing their company differently. With revenues of $49 million in 2016, they have no corporate offices and no manufacturing plants. They have a staff of only 55 people.

This is great news for those 55 people and for the customers who enjoy the ice cream, for the manufacturing plants that now have the orders to make the ice cream, and for the co-working spaces that are used when the staff need to have a meeting, as well as the online companies that provide software for them to meet virtually.

What they are not providing revenue for, however, are real estate agents who would help them find office space and manufacturing space; equipment companies who would have sold them machinery to make the ice cream; real estate investors who own the land and buildings that might have housed their offices and plants. The office supply companies that would have provided everything that is needed to set up an office. Decorators who would have helped them make the office environment pleasing. I may be leaving some people out, but this is just one small example of where the world of business is heading.

Yes, there will still need to be people to be employed in many capacities, but the number shrinks dramatically each year.

Add to it that people are more and more unwilling to accept poor products and poor service. Why pay the cost of a regulated taxi when Uber and Lyft can provide a ride quicker, cheaper and with a more pleasant person at the wheel. Why fight to find a parking spot at a mall when you can shop from the comfort of your home?

We are creating a movement

Feisty & Fearless Circles of women coming together to encourage each other, learn from each other, support each other, laugh, cry and celebrate one another.

Circles that will spring up everywhere, of women coming together.

Circles of women making a difference: for themselves, their families, their businesses, the corporations they work at, their communities and for the world

Circles of women who have ideas, who are in transition, who are in business or working their way up the corporate ladder - or tired of doing that

Circles of women who know the benefit of women working together, helping each other

Circles of women who empower each other, and the men in their lives

Circles of women who speak up and speak out

Circles of women who give a hand out when needed, and a hand up

Circles of women who are already Feisty & Fearless, and those who aspire to be

If you are ready to re-create your life and be part of the Feisty & Fearless future, e-mail us and we'll let you know when the next Circle is open. Circle@FeistyandFearless.com

"I have met so many strong, fearless women in the Circle. I have clarified my goals and received support from the group, and would recommend this group to any woman in need of encouragement and accountability." - Rebecca L.

"We had a great group and Pauline's coaching was very helpful!" Shelly F.

"What a great group of women. We got to know each other in the first meeting, with generous sharing. By the end of that first evening, the group was already feeling cohesive. That's saying a lot for a group of around 20, the great majority of which didn't know each other beforehand. This was great leadership in action, creating such a safe space. From the second session on when Pauline led the discussions and coached individuals, I am each time again, as always, struck by her gift for "seeing" what's needed and getting right to it. As a really early riser, I can't think of anyone else that could inspire me to drive 45 minutes each way, at the time of evening when I am usually winding down. I, too, am grateful for being a part of the Feisty & Fearless Circle!" - Reggie O.

"Amazing group of diverse, determined and strong women. Our meetings were uplifting, reminded me of helpful tools, and taught me so many invaluable ones. Pauline inspired me so much, as a person, her tireless advocacy to bring gender equality, and passion to educate thru 50/50 Leadership. As a Coach, she will challenge you, share her knowledge and expertise, and go the extra mile to help achieve your goals. I'm happy and grateful to have participated in the Feisty & Fearless Circle. Thank You!" -  Candy


"Fantastic and empowering!" -  Cristine  



This is an ongoing Circle by invitation only, with a pre-requisite of completing a Feisty & Fearless Circle.

“Wow, at last! Here is a feminist voice that covers discrimination of all colors and sizes – bigotry against women, Jews, immigrants, having red hair, too little money and too much, fat, bossy. The list is endless.”
— Carolyn Howard-Johnson
Award-winning author of Imperfect Echoes
"We all have a back story, the failures and the poor decision making we recognise when we look back on our lives, and Pauline is refreshingly frank about her own ups and downs.  Her determination to step up and show responsibility is a practical manual in leadership skills which  will inspire and motivate many women."

Feisty and Fearless

Women and men are equally capable as leaders, but women have been trained to be nice. Being nice can take us only so far then it trips us up.

To be effective, we need to reach inside ourselves and realize that just as mothers would walk in front of a bus to save their child, so we each can find a similar passion and commitment that pushes us onward removing fear and doubt so we simply do what we know to be right. 

Do you have to be born a leader? Have a title? Be a man? A certain age? The answer is: No.

Each of us has leadership potential within, and when we do our inner work, we can be the leader of our family, company, or community.

Failure and mistakes are not generally accepted as the road to success, but they are often our most powerful tools to growth. Read Feisty and Fearless: Nice Girls CAN Be Leaders, and find out how including Abraham Lincoln and others used failed attempts to spur them on. Read stories of leaders and find out their secrets. Learn to recognize mercenaries and real leaders, and decide which you want to be.

There are challenges throughout the book that provide valuable lessons to enhance your leadership skills. In :

  • The characteristics of effective leaders
  • 14 Exercises to guide you through your work in becoming a more effective leader
  • Discover that Caring is one of the keys to authentic leadership
Read stories of women leaders:
  • An artist who empowers children
  • A successful CEO who puts her family first
  • A divorced mother who reinvented herself to provide for her children
  • An actress turned successful business owner who heals a family rift
  • A child leader
  • A company leader who thinks empowering others is her main job
  • A world-renowned expert and author who puts her ego aside
  • A feminist who lets nothing stop her in her work to have women learn how to be safe
