YOUR VOICE IS TOO IMPORTANT

TO BE SILENCED


Women speak up 75% less often than men when they are outnumbered

If you are a woman in leadership, you are outnumbered.

Have you been...

Interrupted?

Dismissed?

Left out of key conversations?

You know you're the expert in the room.

But you wonder...

Did I say something wrong? Was I clear? How am I being perceived?

It's enough to shake your confidence.

When you are a leader at the top, you can't be wondering if your message is being heard the way you intend. We don't blame women* but we know you want a solution.

And we can help.

*We don't blame men either. We all have to work together to influence change.

Your Voice Is Too Important To Be Silenced.

Communication is a learned skill. Listening is key to understanding, but too much listening without speaking can undermine your expertise.

You are an authentic leader, but you show up differently than leaders of the past who over-value charisma and self-promotion.

Have you been...

  • Interrupted?

  • Dismissed?

  • Left out of key conversations?

You're the Expert in the Room.

But you wonder...

  • Did I speak up enough?

  • Was my presentation clear?

  • Am in the right position/job/culture?

It's enough to shake your confidence.

When you're a leader, you can't be wondering if your message is being heard the way you intend.

You know you have to be authentic, but who's going to help you match your intention with your actions?

I just had an amazing sales call,

I cannot wait for the next one! I was able to help my client step into her feminine energy and really visualize it.

I needed to get back in tune with how to stand in my truth. You helped me feel powerful, knowledgeable, and prepared to speak at an important (but stressful!) event.
