What would it be like to be free of limitations and soar beyond your boundaries?
The Self-Authoring Woman is a leadership and personal growth coaching program that provides you with the tools and resources to realize your full potential.
Why is it important for women to self-author?
As women, we live in a time of incredible change. While there are more opportunities than there have been in the past, there is still much work to do to balance the feminine and masculine in our work and world.
There aren’t yet enough female role models to mentor all the women who are looking for a different way to serve, lead, and create in our world. We need to forge our own paths!
A woman who is able to invent, and reinvent herself based on knowing her strengths, values, mind, and blindspots makes better decisions, has greater reach and impact, navigates change effectively, has more productive teams, engages in pivotal conversations, and is true to herself.
The Self-Authoring Woman is a six-month coaching program that guides you to explore your your own personas and roles, release inner constrictions, uncover your own brilliance, and step into your inner authority. Through coaching experiments and action learning you are implementing new behaviors all along the way!

How It Works
A six-month Coaching Private Program and Curriculum to Transform Your Leadership and Life
The Self-Authoring Woman Coaching and Masterclass takes you through key distinctions of who you are and who you want to be. You’ll receive the opportunity to experiment with new skills and approaches, and make in-the-moment adjustments based on feedback, impact and results.
This program is divided into 3 parts – each part builds on the previous. You will learn distinctions that put your inner self-portrait into alignment with your outer actions.
Bi-Weekly Content & Resources
Every two-weeks, you will engage with new content in the form of exercises, worksheets, videos, or curated content from experts. These resources keep you moving in a forward direction and prevent us from floundering or stalling.
Bi-Weekly Private Coaching
Every two weeks you will have a private coaching session with Terri via Zoom. On these calls, you will share your celebrations and challenges with your homework from the preceeding two weeks. Terri will support and coach you through this material. The call will conclude with summarizing insights, designing new experiments, and reviewing the homework for the next two weeks.
Confidence and new insights grow from working at your learning edge through designed actions. At the end of each coaching sessions, you will be creating new experiments to implement and test during the upcoming two weeks.
Accountability & Support
Like any learning activity, you will get from this program what you put into it. Terri is your partner on this journey to support you to reach your goals.
In addition to your bi-weekly coaching sessions, you will receive weekly inspiration emails from Terri. You will also have 24/7 access to Terri via text or email when additional support is needed.
Coaching Portal & Lifetime Access
All program materials will be available and organized in your coaching portal. You can review these as often as you want, even after our formal coaching has ended. You can come back to the portal time and again to re-use materials and refresh on concepts.
You can take your coaching calls and access your coaching portal from anywhere in the world that has an internet access. The portal is available to 24/7. Both our Zoom calls and the coaching portal are mobile accessible.

What My Wonderful Clients Say
I was extremely pleased with the level of coaching provided by Terri Altschul. Together, we were able to identify key areas of focus and develop an individualized plan that allowed me to improve my leadership skills within a six month timeframe. I appreciated the personalized approach that she took to ensure I was achieving my optimal performance in managing a large Operations team. The tools, techniques and exercises provided during the sessions were easily incorporated into my professional routines and I quickly found improvements in my team structure and dynamic. In addition, I personally struggled with managing my work/life balance and Terri was able to gently provide techniques to improve in this area. I would highly recommend Terri to anyone who is looking to further strengthen their leadership skills. I am so glad I had the opportunity and committed myself to this process!
Terri is smart, engaging, creative, and warm. She is genuinely interested in helping others grow and in supporting both individuals and the organization. She has a keen understanding of the relationship between workforce and business outcomes and is able to manage controversial stakeholder relationships and maintain good relations. As the coaching sponsor, Terri was very focused on best practices and enhancing the quality of coaching. She worked hard to support her organization get the best and with the coaches to keep commitments. She provided information to help us all be knowledgeable about the organizational culture and leadership models and went out of her way to ensure we had the tools we needed to provide good coaching. She is a terrific partner, always seeking to learn and grow and share. I would recommend Terri highly.
I’m so honored to have met Terri! It warms my heart to see how much she cares about people. She has inspired me to go after my dream. She has given me the tools to conquer it, and I can’t thank her enough!!! Since her coaching program, I have decided to live a life with no regrets! I want to live free, bold and sometimes daring (like King Julian in that picture I sent you 🙂 I know I’ll fall down, I know I’ll get hurt, I know sometimes I’ll disappoint people, but now I’m OK with that. Because of the values work she taught me, I’m figuring out when it’s best to forge ahead and not look back, when it’s best to jump in with both feet (or not) and when it’s better to say “no” and go another direction.
The Women Connected Circle model for deep connection is unsurpassed. Each session was well constructed to carefully and intentionally get each of us to a deeper understanding of ourselves in the presence of one another. There is plenty of safety built in and lots of challenge. After being a part of a Women Connect Circle, I decided to launch my own coaching groups. I have had 7 of them, all very successful and transformational. I wholeheartedly support and love this group work and the women of the world need this experience NOW!
Terri is an objective, neutral but motivating sounding board to discuss both professional (individual) as well as organizational challenges and opportunities. She cultivated my individual strength and growth, including restoring my self confidence and increasing my self reliance. She helped me to regain my individual power and voice in the C-suite. She expanded my perspective so that I could use different lenses to view the perspectives of my team and peers, bringing out the best in my whole team. Terri helped me expand my ways of working with others depending upon their styles and needs. Through working with Terri, I have been restored, and am renewed in who I am. I am challenging myself in a very positive way –I have increased self-confidence and self-reliance –I have become more of my impact as a strategic leader and I am delegating more to my team.
Pleasing people is something I see almost every woman I know struggling with. That was my Achilles heel – until Terri came along! To me, EVERYTHING was personal, especially when there was no business involved. Now my phrase is;” it’s not personal, it’s just a difference in values.” (It makes much better sense!) I’m so honored to have met Terri! It warms my heart to see how much she cares about people. She inspired me to go after my dream. She gave me the tools to conquer it, and I can’t thank her enough!!!
Terri is one of the most insightful practitioners I have ever worked with. Her ability to hear the complicated stories of my life and help me make sense of it was second to none. She helped me see the deeper parts of myself while reflecting respect and her enormous heart. I would not hesitate to work with her again and highly recommend her as a truly unique coach and consultant.
Terri Altschul is a highly empathic, intuitive healer, whose innate right-brain gifts are presented within a grounded set of recognized and data-proven modalities. I think this combination is essential in our post-modern world, where it can often be an ongoing challenge to maintain our balance in the midst of so much turbulence, conflicting demands, and different understandings of what we wish were a commonly-shared reality. In my experience with Terri, she was able to enter into an unusual set of coaching circumstances, quickly establish rapport and connection, and assess and feel into my situation in a systematic yet heart-filled way. She offered coaching exercises and practices that were just off-the-beaten track enough for me to be inspired and energized by them, and they have been helpful. In fact, more than two years later, I’m still working with some of them, and now consider them to be ‘arrows in my quiver’ for my own coaching clients. So I would definitely feel happy about recommending Terri to anyone who asked me for a personal coaching referral.
Terri provided me with excellent corporate coaching and mentoring support. Although I was at first dubious as to what assistance a corporate coach could offer, I was very quickly won over by her superlative wisdom, insight, and very practical suggestions that were incredibly helpful and useful to me in my role in the corporate world. Her help was so valuable that when I left my position, I hired Terri to help me with personal transition goals and focus. I am a fan of hers for life now and highly recommend her.
Over the past 15 years I’ve participated in many virtual learning cohorts including Ivy League institutions. My experience with Terri’s Group Coaching Program was by far the most engaging, interactive and productive experience I’ve ever had. Without question the most valuable part of the workshop is the group facilitation and private coaching provided by Terri. Terri takes the time to help each participant deeply understand how to approach change in a personal and meaningful way, where you not only see results during the workshop, but you are truly prepared to approach future change needs in a new, productive way.
