  • Big Shoes to Fill; Mastering Your Promotion and Combatting Imposter Syndrome

    Promotions are great; but they can also be daunting. Doubt in one's personal abilities is also common whenever we move up in our career paths. Overcoming imposter syndrome and any mental roadblocks can help us to better tackle new roles. This session provides strategies on how to confidently step into your new role without losing your faith in yourself.

  • Boundaries in Action: The Power of "No"

    Women are often called rude, selfish, bossy, or much worse when we tell someone no. However, as Brene Brown says, creating these boundaries allows for us to do more for ourselves and ultimately for others. Reserving our time, energy, and space for our safety, health, and general needs enables women to maintain a healthier, more satisfied self; therefore, our capacity and ability to help others will also be increased. This session will discuss how to protect our time, energy, and selves, and ultimately say no to things and people that do not serve our greater wellbeing.
