Fearless Female Leadership: What’s Next for You? A Proven Process to Gain Clarity and Confidence


Sometimes we get that uncomfortable feeling, like it’s time to shift, make a pivot or uplevel, and we often ask ourselves, ‘What's next for me?’

It’s a bold question, often not an easy one, isn’t it?!

Do you ever get that feeling that you are being called to do more, or do something different? 

I’ve had the honor of working with some of the most prolific and influential female leaders, here in San Francisco, Silicon Valley and across the country and their teams. 

One thing they’ve  said over the years is  “I wish all the women in my organization could have the transformation that I'm having, so they can go from being possibly silenced, overlooked or disregarded to being and feeling heard, valued, respected. Like they're really an agent of change.”

And so last September, I said ‘yes!’ to a fantastic opportunity to partner with the software company and learning platform Rali to create and film the Fearless Female Leadership Enterprise Journey.

After almost six months of curriculum design, filming, and editing, it's now ready and out in the world. I’m so excited to share it with you!

The Fearless Female Leadership enterprise program is currently being placed with a couple of early adopters in a consumer goods company as well as a cybersecurity company, and the official launch will be in a couple of weeks.

But I have to share something with you. 

The decision was terrifying.  

The amount of time this took was scary. The amount of money that this took was scary. As a matter of fact, for my business, this level of investment did not make financial sense for me at the time. 

But I have to share that every cell in my body was screaming yes! 

I took a very serious look to see if I could make it work, and then I went for it.

Are you experiencing something similar? Are you asking yourself ‘what's next for me?’ 

It doesn't have to be something grand..

It could be…

‘What's next for me is that I speak up more?’ 

‘What's next for me is to get paid what I feel that I'm worth?’

But it could be a shift. It could be a pivot. It could be something big. It could be going from working in consumer goods to working in one industry or role to something completely different. 

If you are at a place where that little voice keeps saying, ‘what's next?’, then maybe it is time to change, time to pivot, or time to up-level. 

There are a couple of questions you can ask yourself when you feel like it's time to make a decision about what's next, but you're not exactly sure what it should be… 

#1 If you had a magic wand and could not fail, what would you take action on?

#2 In one, two, three, or five years, if you were to look back on yourself today, what would you regret not doing or not trying? 

The important thing to remember here is perspective.

I do not have the answers to ‘what's next’ for you. What I do have is the ability to help with shifting your perspective and helping you to understand that the answers are already within you. 

And if you do have that uncomfortable feeling, it's my philosophy that you are being called for more or called to something different. 

Will you accept the challenge that you’re being guided toward?

The next resource I want to share with you that should help is a worksheet called the "Get to Know Yourself Questionnaire."

Here is the worksheet which you can download today.

Grab a cup of tea or beverage of choice, go somewhere where you are not going to be disturbed, and allow yourself 15-20 minutes to answer these questions honestly.

It's not going to be graded. No one else has to see it. Although if you want to share it with me, I would love it!

These questions are going to help you pull back the first layer of the onion, to help you gain clarity of ‘what's next?’

Watch my video (above) for more in-depth perspective.

Be sure to also have a look at this video, which is an overview of the Fearless Female Leadership Enterprise Journey (it’s 2:00-minutes long).

I would love to know two things from you.

#1. What's the one insight that you got from the Get to Know Yourself Questionnaire?

#2. What are you most excited about the Fearless Female Leadership Enterprise Journey?
