Here at Fostering Real Opportunities (FROS), our mission is to support those who strive for personal transformation and living their fullest self. This is needed for equitable and thriving communities. The strategy of our work is to build a culture of liberation and partnership needed to navigate systems of oppression and build a healthy future for all our communities.
We are guided by the belief that transformation lives within storytelling and narrative. Each is an essential tool for building relationships. As humans, we are filled with stories that need to be told, even more so, stories that need to be witnessed. FROS works with those who wish to develop the skills to listen to these stories, to provide opportunities for these stories to thrive and share a greater story to the rest of our communities. This deepens communication, collaboration and collective impact in all work and group environments.
Coaching for individuals has us taking a deeper look at what narratives are we telling ourselves, about the world, those different then us, and who we are. How do we live within these narratives and break free of them? We utilize various tools that support our understanding of identity, socialization and culture. These conversations within organizations impact goals toward Racial Equity & Inclusion, Equitable Human Resource practices, Mediation and Conflict Resolution along with Community Outreach, Collective Leadership and Board Development. At FROS, to achieve collective impact towards equity, we practice Peacemaking Circles, Story-based Strategy, Insight Dialogue, and other forms of guided dialogues to create an environment that is "safer" and welcoming all to be authentic together. Our organizational coaching also includes training and workshops to support any size organization or group deepen equitable and inclusive practices to be in deeper relationship internally and to communities.
If you are ready to take the risk of starting within your self, your organization, or your community, Fostering Real Opportunities, led by the one and only Regent Brown, is here to help you on this journey to effective, authentic, transformational growth toward your fullest potential!
