Philia is a leadership programme that was started in January 2017. We developed a peer coaching method as an empowering tool for women to support each other towards reaching their goals. Philia is also a global community of women who are supporting each other through the Philia Peer Coaching Method.
What’s in the name?
Philia is the Greek term for love. In addition to Philia, the Greeks defined three other types of love: Eros, Storge and Agape. Eros refers to passionate love. Storge is familial love such as the love between mother and child. Thirdly, Agape stands for the highest form of love, such as the universal love of God for man and of man for God. Philia is often translated as “sisterly love”. It is the benevolent love between two virtuous people, between true friends.
Buy One, Get One Free
Philia is a social enterprise and Tom’s Shoes inspired us that there is a better way to “buy one, get one free”. Philia gives everyone the opportunity to participate. For every paid participant, a less privileged person will get access to our course materials and also to the international network of successful and supportive women. Read more
Our core product is an interactive 20-week e-learning course. For those of you that feel the need for more support in this process than the online course can offer, we have created a personal mentorship scheme in which Tanja or Nicole will teach you Philia materials via Skype or even in person.
