RISE UP AS THE TRUE, INFLUENTIAL LEADER YOU ARE!
Even if you don’t know how.
From sitting back to standing out: my 7-step framework for bringing out your bold leader within.
You May Have Seen Me On
Tired of missing opportunities that you know you should be getting?
walking into a room feeling like you could conquer the world, free of self-doubt and fear
standing out as an influential and credible leader who others admire and want to follow
being so confident that nothing could shake you
You were equipped to make effortless and powerful asks that led to closing the deal and securing new business opportunities?
You had the ability to think on your feet when faced with pushback such as challenging questions and difficult people?
You were able to promote yourself with ease?
You could make killer presentations and get exactly what you want?
That’s the power of speaking with confidence
But, how do you get there? Right now, you’re paying a price for not standing out. What is it costing you?
Are you missing opportunities that others are getting because you’re not speaking up? Are you tired of being overlooked for new opportunities or being left in the dust because someone else won out?
Maybe you’ve been holding back from stepping up and sharing your ideas because you’re afraid you’ll be judged, won’t say it perfectly, or you’ll simply look and feel stupid.
Perhaps you’re trying to accommodate everyone else at your expense or imposter syndrome is plaguing you.
Self-doubt is paralyzing!
You are hyper aware of your problem, which makes you even more frustrated and stuck. You know you’re not living into your full potential and it’s holding you back from opportunities to be seen for the true leader that you are.
You have good ideas and smart opinions to share, but you’re so concerned about what people will think that you stay small, unseen, and unheard, which feels safe, but you know isn’t serving you.
You’re especially frustrated because you have lots of credibility and expertise, but people don’t truly know your brilliance because you’re not sharing it! You have a hard time expressing your ideas to people you assume know more than you.
I was in your shoes, friend.
I remember sitting in the boardroom knowing I had ideas to share but feeling afraid no one would listen; so I didn’t speak up. I had insights into our projects and a different perspective to offer; but I stayed silent out of fear of my ideas not being ignored or judged.
But now, I don’t hesitate to speak up; and I don’t second guess my ideas or opinions!
After years of developing these skills and many others, I’ve narrowed this process down into a seven-step framework that will save you the time and anguish of being timid and move you into confident communication and leadership.
I’ve coached thousands of women to do this and I want you to have this framework at the ready to your leadership and be seen as the influential leader you are.
rise up as the true, influential leader you are!
It can be daunting, especially if you’re stuck like I was, holding back my ideas in leadership meetings because I was afraid of being judged or that my idea wasn’t good enough and I’d be seen as not bringing enough value to the table.
I get it! I remember feeling so unsure at times. Do I have what it takes? It’s hard to define confidence, but you know it when you see it. I just knew I wanted more of it. But, how do you step into it? What are the practical tools to get you there?
You just need a little guidance. I’ve coached thousands of women to be more confident. All you need are a few tools, the desire to improve, and support to get you across the finish line. That’s where I come in. You’ll see great progress when you follow my roadmap.

“You helped me so much.
Since we’ve worked together, I’ve been asked to host a number of events both internally and externally, and I’ve been asked to create coaching curriculums for a few of the firms we work with. I owe you a lot of the credit because you helped me think strategically and helped me learn how to communicate more effectively. You’ve had an amazing impact on me!
