Reframe for Confidence

8 Weeks starting Thursday, May 6th on Zoom
9:00AM – 10:30AM

Who should attend?

Women looking to take the next step in their career or business.

Why you should attend?

  • Women often feel less assured than men and evidence proves that to succeed confidence matters as much as competence.
  • Research shows that in order to apply for a job, women feel they need to meet 100% of the criteria, usually after meeting about 60%.
  • LinkedIn behavioral data backs this up — women tend to screen themselves out of the conversation and end up applying to 20% fewer jobs than men.
  • As women, we are 51% of the population, yet women only occupy 3.5% of the CEO roles in our country, according to a recent Canada-wide diversity study.

What you will get out of it?

  • Transform Fear
  • Build Confidence
  • Set Goals and Meet them
  • Let go of Excessive Expectation
  • Communicate with Impact
REGISTER BY THURSDAY, APRIL 26, 2021. There will be a maximum of 8 participants enrolled in this workshop.
