Evidence shows that women are less self-assured than men, however studies prove confidence is just as important as competence when it comes to advancing a successful career. The confidence gap between men and women is caused by factors that range from upbringing, social conditioning, and biology. Today the 8 most desired characteristics for the modern leader are considered to be feminine, so when women become more courageous, they will naturally become more effective leaders and everyone benefits.

In this session, you will:
• Begin to learn what it takes to overcome self-doubt and become unstoppable in the face of fear
• Develop the courage and clarity to take action and take risks
• Understand how confidence combined with core strengths creates powerful and authentic women
