Camp CAS Leadership Summit
Event on 2016-04-07 15:00:00
Calling all women movers, shakers and business rule breakers! Are you ready to take your next step in becoming the leader you're meant to be? This is YOUR Leadership Summit! If you're tired of feeling locked or blocked in your business or career… If you're feeling the weight of keeping up with the expectations you've set for yourself… If you're tired of the struggle to match your external title with what you've accomplished… If you feel that others see something in you, but you don't yet see it in yourself… It's time for you to come to the only Leadership Summit that is designed with you in mind. A Leadership Summit for Business What is Camp CAS Women's Edition? A conference or summer camp? It's NOT a bootcamp. It's NOT a networking event. It's NOT speakers selling their stuff. It's NOT a Vacation. It's NOT a fancy spa day. It's an Experiential Leadership Summit. Even the BEST Women's Leadership Conferences today follow the old format of Teach and Take Notes – Keynotes and Panels – Network and Get Inspired. And there is nothing wrong with the format, but it does not help YOU learn the finer aspects of YOUR leadership. And in today's business environment, we need so much more than to be inspired by Other Peoples Successes (OPS). The world does not need more Leaders who know about Leadership. We need leaders who embody their message and mission so that they can lead us through times of uncertainty, chaos and ambiguity. This type of leadership is not taught. It's learned. It's studied. It's experienced. Camp CAS – Women's Edition is designed to build on your success. This is not just a touchy-feely, feel good cheerleading fest. Camp is here to help you challenge yourself to your next level of success – however you choose to define that. Our Focus for Camp CAS – Women's Edition to build bridges between the "how-to's" (strategy and tactics) of business with the "who-does" (that's you!). We are committed to changing the conversation about "Women in Business" from merely spouting disparaging facts and figures to helping you master the navigation of your own business or career so that you can make the impact you are here to make. To that end, we design Camp CAS to be a mixture of business development and personal growth and leadership. Why "Women's Camp"?  Why not co-ed? Well, here's a truth: When you put powerful women together, amazing shit happens. And we're putting powerful women together. And, another truth: Women face unique situations and circumstances in business. We want you to join us in changing the conversation about "women in business". Currently, it's far too full of whining, blame and victim mentality – and that's not you. When you truly know and embody your own value and worth, you are able to build your trusted and loyal network and team – and that is what makes you unstoppable! A common story people share with us is: I've accomplished a lot. I am pretty smart and have status. I am a trusted member of my community and I'm dedicated to my work and mission. In fact, there are times I get my job done faster than expected so I feel like I'm always on the move in my career. And then someone comes along and suggests I "should lighten up" or "go play" more…"take it easy for a while." It makes my blood boil. I am busy making an IMPACT on the world and focusing on my business. Play? That's so demeaning…plus, who has the time when my life already demands 18 hours a day of upbeat motivation and attention? On top of it all…I'm a WOMAN in business. I have to work so much harder for respect and to keep my status. If I start on a track of personal development, people will definitely think I'm "woo-woo" and I'll never get another job. And the follow up story they "forget" to share is: But one day I woke up too exhausted to lead. I told myself I'll rest…just for a little bit and then get back to it… But the next day was the same. And the next. The motivation was just gone. I was just too tired to care anymore. I looked back over my life and realized I really was focused on the wrong thing. I have been so focused on others…and the problems in this world…that I just got burnt out! I want to be part of the solution! Does that ring a bell? Maybe you feel sick. Maybe you're developing strange symptoms – a rash, asthma, digestion problems. You can't even remember how you were ever THAT motivated before. But you don't want to complain and whine…like thosewomen…so you suck it up and keep moving on. Okay, Okay…maybe this isn't you…yet. But you've heard about it from other women, right? Don't let that SOMEDAY be you. You want to get aligned with your business now before the stress and uncertainty take it's toll on your health and well being. Learn what's really stopping you from the success you're after. So BE Different. You're  already different because you know it's the times you detach from your daily grind that you get your next big insight. Why do we get the great ideas when we are in the shower, or playing with the dog? It's because much of your brain is resting and you are freed up to wander and explore new ideas…to be creative…to come up with the solution that has baffled you up to this point. Camp CAS Women's Edition is the perfect blend of challenge, personal exploration, activities and relaxation – all around like-minded women in business. No blueprints We do not need more leaders who simply know about leadership. We need leaders who can keep calm and inspired in times of chaos, uncertainty and ambiguity. There are no blueprints for success with this kind of leadership. At Camp CAS, you’ll learn leadership from the inside out. Innovation When you take yourself out of your daily routine, and give your brain and body something new to do, you’ll discover all sorts of innovative thoughts and ideas. Camp CAS is designed to meet the innovation needs of the creative and technical minded leaders by helping you develop a broader view of the projects and problems you face. Vital Connections One of the habits of successful leaders and business owners is collaboration. At Camp CAS you’ll have 3 1/2 days of real connection, learning and sharing with like-minded business women. Success is not in speed networking…it’s building your network. Who knows who may become part of your next team? A Life Hack-A-Thon The 3 1/2 days at Camp CAS is your opportunity to re-connect, re-invent, re-structure, re-member your core pieces and parts and put them back together in the way you’re meant to be. The Summit accomplishes this through creative activities, business building seminars and one-on-one meetings so you leave feeling re-set and re-vitalized. Is Camp CAS for me? AB-so-freakin-lutely! Are you looking for a promotion? Or wanting a raise? Are you expanding your own business? Are you waiting for your internal confidence to catch up with your external title? Or perhaps the opposite, waiting for your title to catch up with what you know you're capable of accomplishing? Do you see that "special something" is in charismatic leaders? Are you craving to identify it in yourself? At Camp CAS, we drop our titles at the door.  Whether you are a founder of a successful company…or a founder of one that hasn't reached the success you want…or are a leader in a company and have projects and people you want to drive forward…then Camp CAS is for you! Whether you are an Entrepreneur or an Intrapreneur…Camp CAS is for you! The commonality of our campers is that they want to expand their capacity to lead in times of change, ambiguity and uncertainty. They want to end the struggle of trying to match the internal confidence with the external title (whether that works for or against them). And they know that when we get powerful women together…amazing SHIT happens. Camp CAS Women's Edition is a perfect blend of Building Business Community through experiential keynotes, activities powerful networking and Summer Camp – yep, arts & crafts, archery, climbing trees and lounging with new friends. Why You'll Want to be at Camp CAS First and foremost because Everything is better at camp. Everything. And we already covered that when powerful women get together, amazing SHi..STUFF happens. And some of you want to know more. So here are some more really valid reasons: Leave truly knowing what your next best step is for you own career or business advancement. Be part of changing the conversation about "Women in Business" by stepping into your own authentic leadership role. Permanently escape the roller coaster of motivation that seems to go hand-in-hand with leadership positions, and develop strategies for long-term, sustainable energy. Strengthen vital connections with powerful women who, like you, are truly pioneering progress and understand what it takes to break through the barriers to growth. Be a force in developing the next generation of women leaders. Who Started Camp CAS?  And Why? Heather Furby Founder, Camp Director Heather Furby, Founder and Camp Director, could not take another "business as usual" leadership conference in an air-conditioned hotel. She knows you were not born to sit behind a computer taking notes about inspiration and leadership – only to have no idea how to implement once you get back to "real life". She developed Camp CAS (Camp Cause and Success) Leadership Summit as a hands-on, activity driven and safe-to-experiment environment so that you can experience your unique style of leadership – without the pressure of day-to-day management of your team, business or life. She now brings 20 years of success in business, including starting two companies, BodyLogic Health and Cause And Success, a division of Creative Age Leadership, Inc, a company she started with her husband, Alan Repech. Heather knows first hand the struggle, depression and feelings of failure that ensue when we focus too much on the HOW-TO's of business and forget about the WHO-DOES. So…in short…she decided to merge experiential teaching of business strategies and tactics with the entrepreneurial vision and spirit of leadership and thus…Camp CAS was born. Past Camp CAS Speakers (From Camp CAS Fall 2015) (2016 Speakers announced soon) Jenn Morgan Radically Distinct Brands Jenn Morgan is a brand management expert and creative business tactician. She co-founded Radically Distinct to help her clients translate ideas into emotionally resonate messages, increase personal and team efficacy and design measurable customer and employee engagement programs. In her spare time, Jenn works out her confidence muscles as a stand up comedienne and builds her storytelling skills as a member of the Half Sister improvisational theater team. Jake Tuschinski Divinitatas Consulting Jake Tuschinski, owner of Divinitatis Consulting, is California’s no-nonsense leadership consultant, certified life coach and keynote speaker with a knack for telling it like it is. Her areas of expertise include life balance, leadership, success motivation, meeting management, networking with strong relationship outcomes and communication skills. She's bringing her award winning skills and spirit to Camp CAS this year to help you have a deeper understanding of your competitive edge – and how we can bring that with happiness to all we do. Alex Iglecia Being Epic Alex Iglecia, MA, a former NASA Engineer and born-again Ninja turned Mind-Body Expert and Impact Alchemist, empowers speakers, leaders and dreamers to have the energy to step out in the world and the clarity to NOT QUIT. Specifically he helps smart people overcome their biggest blocks and barriers so they can give their deepest gifts with joy. The essence of his message is "Thanks for being epic" because you already are. Are there any rules at Camp? Booo! No Rules! No Rules! OK…we have FIVE “strongly encouraged norms that, if not followed, may result in you going home early.” How’s THAT for modern day parenting? #Hashtag Free #Hashtag Free means there is no social media. In fact, you can check your phone, tablets and other devices in the Decompression Zone. There is no cell coverage or wifi at camp anyway so it’s a perfect excuse to unplug. #Hashtag Free allows you to feel safe because no picture of you with a painted face, clown nose or leading the kazoo symphony parade will be posted. No reputation management needed at Camp CAS. Title Free Title Free Environment means you get to drop your title at the door. We level the playing field at Camp CAS. You are free to be who you are, not what your title dictates you are supposed to be. In business, we rely a lot on titles and labels and we get accustomed to having them provide automatic positioning and status. But they also limit us. What is a CEO supposed to act like? What happens if I’m a Founder but my business is new…will people think I’m a failure? What if I’m an entry level admin but I know I am really worth more? Will people ever see me for ME? Title Free Environment allows you to let all success and failure drop away. And after all…is a Marketing Manager inherently better than a CTO at “Mermaid Tag?” We don’t think so. Drug and Alcohol Free* Yes. We get we are all adults and a cocktail or cold beer can be a nice addition to your day. But we are Drug and Alcohol Free at Camp CAS. It allows you to really see who you are without the aid of any substance. It means you can dive into your true joys, passions, fears and obstacles without the filter of drugs or alcohol. *We understand that some people use prescription medications. This rule applies to drugs of the non-legal kind. We also know that some people can’t quit smoking overnight. While we encourage you to cut back, we will offer limited designated smoking areas away from the rest of camp. And we do believe strongly in coffee. Strong Coffee. Age Free Age Free is just as it sounds. No talking about how old and wise you are, nor how young and full of energy, or how old and full of energy, nor young and wise…you get it. We often judge people by age and in truth, it just doesn’t matter. We cringe when we hear “Oh,  you’re so young…you don’t have to worry about that…” or “You have so many years of experience, you must be an expert.” So, at Camp CAS…we drop age. We just ask that you’re over 18 (there’s a legal part to that…) FOMO Free FOMO is Fear Of Missing Out. It drives so many decisions. Are we going toward what we want or just scared of missing out on the party? It usually holds us back so…we’re FOMO Free. This means that at Camp CAS you are always in the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing with the right people. How right is that? See you at Camp! Get Curious. Stay Connected.
