What if your career consisted of you working as your authentic self?
You probably sense there has to be more than where you are now in your career.
Your presence in this world is much more than picking up a paycheck and going through the motions of living.
You are divinely made. Your talents and abilities are designed for you to carry out your purpose.
Your style of influence shows in the way you work. And just because the way you work may be different than the status quo, you are just as qualified as the next person.
Whether you are overlooked for leadership roles at your job or you weren’t invited to your company’s leadership development program, you have options to gain the training and coaching you need to reach your full potential.
The numbers are in: Having women in positions of leadership and on boards help increase a company’s bottom line.*
So why aren’t there more women in executive leadership positions? Here are some of the reasons given for why women are under-represented.
Past research noted that women are plagued by self-doubt; often underestimating their skills and performance.**
However, present studies suggest that even when women see themselves as confident, women were only perceived as confident when they appeared caring or sociable.***

Step out of the box others (or yourself) have placed you – The world needs you now!
